People responded to the product and the promotion of ‘Canada’s best-valued luxury concrete tower.’ Three hundred homes worth about $70-million dollars sold yesterday. Between Noon and 1:30 p.m. excited early buyers who stood in line for hours, grappled for position and swarmed the buying counter in a frenzy that hasn’t been seen in recent years.

“We are very happy with today’s dramatic sales result,” says Brian Regehr, President of WestStone Properties, the developer of the 35-storey Evolve condo tower. “This is the culmination of two years work, which began with architecturally market-matching the floor plans with the intended buyer groups, creating an international marketing program and bringing together their skilled team of professionals that catered to every customer’s need.”

Evolve had over 800 booked appointments for Saturday and about 2,000 people came through the sales center on Saturday. Evolve’s suites range from 316 to 1,294 square feet and the buyers included first-time homeowners, parents purchasing for children and a large number of buyers from throughout Canada, the US and overseas.

Platinum Project Marketing presented Evolve to prospective buyers using an innovative, high-tech sales platform — augmented reality and holographic technology which gave home shoppers a multi-dimensional viewing experience of the building and floor-plan layouts.

“Today’s success was driven by two factors, the first was the courage of WestStone to give us the ability to design and offer innovative new product types and the second was the national press coverage by social and traditional media, delivering our message throughout North America and beyond,” says Bill Morrison, President of Macdonald Realty Platinum Project Marketing.

The sale continues today (Sunday) from noon to 5pm.

Evolve is the second of six towers to be built in the West Village by WestStone Properties, and part of the largest piece of connected development land in Surrey. Over the next seven years, there will be 2,800 homes built in this area—connecting all residents to the core of Surrey City Centre, offering easy access to transit, grocery stores, education institutions and a diverse mix of culture, arts, recreational facilities and parkland. The expected occupancy date for Evolve is 2018.
