Real Estate

My Experience with Evolve Condominiums, a VIP Event

DSC02546What if I told you that as early as now, you could have your own place? You could own a condominium that has stylish design, luxury finishing, incredible views and solid construction. Another perk? It’s with a price that makes sense.

Well, you’ve probably heard of Evolve Condominiums, a new kind of high-rise in Surrey starting from just $93,900. With the prevalent issue of affordable housing, it’s no surprise that the luxury of owning real estate at an affordable price has finally arrived.

Together with Sukh Johal, I had the privilege of seeing this exciting high-rise urban design first hand and got to Experience Evolve.


We were first picked up by a limo in Downtown Vancouver outside the beautiful Hyatt Regency Hotel. I personally loved the juxtaposition of having us start in the heart of Vancity and then going into Surrey’s urban community. I believe that Surrey has really transformed, and in a few years, it will be the next Downtown core. We see the vast construction of residential towers, tall office buildings, and also, more high-rises, shopping plazas and academic institutions are being built.

DSC02440It was great to be in the limo and to have the opportunity to network with bloggers, media personalities and professionals in the real estate industry. We had some great conversations, and I was intrigued to know more of what they thought of Surrey and the Evolve project. Most of these individuals work in Downtown Vancouver and have never been out to the Fraser Valley, let alone Surrey!

DSC02511After an hour long ride, we were starving and were delighted to see the familiar Roaming Dragon Food Truck. If you’re in Vancity often, you’ve probably had their delicious pan-Asian food.


Voted one of the best in food & drink and featured in reputable media outlets including The New York Times, MacLeans and The Food Network to name a few, I could not wait to delve into my fish tacos and quench my thirst with their award-winning Basil Lychee Lemonade.

DSC02654We were then led to their Sales Centre and got to experience the innovative presentation style of Augmented Reality Technology. It’s the first of its kind in Canada, and through an app, it gives you the opportunity to hold your potential home in the palm of your hand with a coaster! As a young woman who wants to have her own place but is on a budget, I was impressed to see a clear picture of what it is I could potentially purchase.

I was dying to step into an actual floor plan. Thankfully, we got to lounge in one of their great units while mingling over cheese and some beer from Central City Brewing, a brewery born and raised in the heart of Surrey.

Afterwards, we attended a presentation with The False Creek Design Group who is responsible for Evolve’s design elements. He shared their top tips on how to maximize a smaller living space and embrace micro-living through innovative design. As I stood their listening, I actually thought to myself, this could really work.

DSC02683So, I really did experience a great event with Evolve, and the day further proved that availability and ownership can be given to individuals who would have not had the chance to own a home. Are you on a budget? Take advantage of this real opportunity to get into the real estate market. Close to the transit station, shopping centres, academic institutions, businesses, restaurants and recreational facilities, Evolve Condominiums is a great investment that locates you in the vibrant city of Surrey, the next great metropolitan centre in the region.


Sales begin this month, and the development is expected to be complete by early 2018.
