Central City Shopping Centre (formerly known as Surrey Place Mall) is a shopping mall and office tower complex in Whalley, Surrey, British Columbia, Canada, which is owned by Blackwood Partners Management Corporation. It is near Surrey Central Station of the SkyTrain system in the Whalley neighbourhood. It was designed by Bing Thom Architects.

It is the second largest mall in Surrey, smaller than Guildford Town Centre. The mall was constructed in the 1960s.

The construction of the Port Mann Bridge and Guildford Town Centre began to challenge the mall's position as a dominant shopping centre. By the 1990s the downfall became great and the mall had lost a lot of its foot traffic and stores became unrented.

Its office tower at 112 m (367 ft) is the tallest building in Surrey. The Shopping Centre itself is 57,400 m2 (617,500 sq ft) while the tower and podium rakes in an additional 52,900 m2 (569,800 sq ft).

Central City and Hollywood[edit]

The Central City Tower has appeared in several films and television shows. It has appeared in the beginning of the movie Fantastic Four and also stood in for the LuthorCorp headquarters in season three of Smallville. It was shown in the movies Firewall, Alone in the Dark, I, Robot, Catwoman, and television shows, including Painkiller Jane.
