G3 development in heart of Guildford action

By Chris Campbell, 24 hours

When people find a neighbourhood they love, they tend to stick with it.

Sarah Penikett can attest to that. As a sales manager with the G3 development in Surrey’s Guildford area, what she’s found is some of the early buyers have been people who have owned houses nearby.

“We’ve had a lot of people downsizing,” she said. “A lot are residents from the Guildford area who want to stay here because they love it here.”

Guildford has a lot to offer, including a library and a massive recreation centre that features a laundry list of community programs. G3 is also close to the Surrey entrance of the new Port Mann Bridge — which has dramatically reduced driving time to and from the city — in addition to SkyTrain. There’s also, of course, the namesake mall, one of the largest in the region.

In the middle of all these amenities are G3’s three phases, totaling about 155 units. They range from studios up to two-bedroom, two-bathroom suites. Prices begin at $149,900 for a studio, with one-bedroom units starting at $182,900 and two-bedroom-two-bathroom units from $243,900.

Residents will also share a 2,650-square-foot recreation centre that features a gym, guest suites and lounge area complete with a pool table.

Interiors of the units feature spacious kitchens with stainless steel appliances, track lighting, glass ceramic tile backsplash and soft-closing cabinetry with brushed-nickel hardware. Bathrooms are decked out with thick quartz countertops, soaker tubs and low-flow toilets to reduce water usage.

Buyers can choose between two main style palettes that include choices of white oak or walnut laminate flooring.

Unlike some projects where people are asked to buy before the ground has even been broken, G3 construction will be finished in 2014. Buyers can even watch the progress with a live construction feed at

Or people can view G3 units at 10439 – 154 St., with the showroom open daily, except Fridays, from noon to 5 p.m. The phone number is 604-588-8238.
