Century Group recently showcased its new digs on the 10th floor of Anvil Centre.
The family-owned, mixed-use real estate development company recently held an official opening of its new corporate headquarters in the Anvil Centre Office Tower at 11 Eighth St.
“New Westminster is at the centre of Metro Vancouver and on the leading edge of change, with a rich heritage,” said Century Group president Sean Hodgins in a press release. “We were attracted here, just like many new residents and new workers are, with New Westminster’s excellent transit accessibility, its revitalized and vibrant historic downtown and its picturesque Fraser River waterfront.”
The move to New West comes after three years in Surrey City Centre, where the company completed the mixed-use project Civic Hotel and 3 Civic Plaza, next to the Surrey Central SkyTrain station.
Vancouver architect Gair Williamson and interior designer Karin Bohn of House of Bohn designed the 15,000-square-foot office space that takes up the entire 10th floor of the Anvil Centre Office Tower. Williamson’s concept for the space was that of a city within a city.
“The approach to the open concept design of the office layout is one of the districts, with hallways as avenues and boardwalks – all walkable and reminiscent of the urban plan with ‘public-private’ spaces that inspire a sense of community,” said a press release about the grand opening.
