WYND Living at Central City Giveawayby
Surrey’s Central City area is growing every day, providing a balance of work, life, and activities within a solid downtown core. You have access to transit, shopping, education, recreation and now a skyline showcasing modern design even the largest urban centres would be proud to showcase. The upcoming WYND high-rise, within walking distance of Central City, will offer the most three bedroom homes in the area along with leading edge architecture and extra large, curving balconies.
WYND offers a fresh take on modern design with its curving 28-storey tower now under construction in the growing metropolis of Central City. The new high rise is offering the most three bedroom homes in the area and WYND also features balconies up to four times the size of the standard Metro Vancouver condo, increasing the living space but not the purchase price.
WYND’s highly efficient design including a sliding wall system that allows residents to transform their homes, giving homeowners the room and rooms they need. The sequel to Rize Alliance’s first Central City tower, Wave, WYND reflects the best of Wave, and responds to buyer’s feedback to increase the number efficient 2 bedroom plus den floor plans that allows two full bedrooms plus an extra room that’s ideal for an office or kid’s playroom.
With one bedrooms starting at $199,000, WYND will have 237 suites and nine ground-floor townhomes. Building amenities include a rooftop deck, landscaped courtyard with BBQ, fitness room, event and games room, children’s play area, workshop and craft room, bike maintenance room, car wash, urban garden plots and even a pet wash and grooming area.
Having been an apartment dweller for the last decade, I love the concept of extra large balconies, sweeping views (the views of the mountains from Surrey are fantastic), urban garden space, and even the pet wash area (well, if I had a pet). Not to mention this is also located very close to where I grew up so the area has a special place in my heart. I’m glad to see so much life breathed into this region.

I have been paying attention to this development since before it was born. There are a couple more development occurring around the area as well as more in planning. Central City is destined to become the next downtown core it was envisioned to be. along with that comes the substantial growing medical sector in the region with a larger hospital, Jim Pattison Outpatient Center and a few other medical buildings. With that much balcony space I would basically build my own lounge area with potted plants, benches and a small walkway.

The current place I am living, I got specifically because of the Terrace, as it is the most important part of my place….meaning the 333 square feet would also be the most important place to me. I would hang out my Swiss bird house, where I have had 5 sets of babies in the past. I would also create a place of Zen…and tranquility, and outdoor space is extremely important for my sense of well being, and those who visit. 🙂
