Billing itself as the “largest urban community” in the heart of Surrey's centre, the Park Avenue West development isn't just about 41-storey luxury towers and townhouses close to likely every downtown service one could ever need — including the King George Skytrain station.

If Concord Pacific's project slogan is any indication, residents can expect to find their “resort lifestyles included.”

Sounds like a lofty goal — but just take a look at the list of amenities offered in this complex weaving together several other Concord projects, and you'll get a taste for what they mean by “luxury built in.”

Landscaped rooftop gardens with a majestic aerial view of the Lower Mainland's fastest-growing city. Hot tub, steam room and sauna alike in which to unwind. A large lap pool with children's swimming corner and poolside private cabanas for entertaining guests. For good measure they're even throwing in a yoga pavilion, putting green, golf simulator, fitness studio and theatre.

In the wake of massive infrastructure upgrades throughout the city, this development is one of the key gems in the company's diadem that will reshape Surrey's skyline.

Concord boasts that it offers 250 suites for less than $250,000. Most are one- and two-bedroom units, and a few expansive three-bedrooms — adorned with quartz stone countertops, gas stove cook-tops, plenty of closet space, walk-in full length glass-framed shower stalls, and spacious balconies or terraces in every unit.

If you need to venture outside your resort-like environs, Holland Park is just across the street and offers water features, community events throughout the year, and pathways for your evening stroll.

Concord has created some impressive videos to promote the development and showcase its forward-looking architecture and landscaping — and if the actors are any sign, they're clearly aiming their sights at a hip, urban generation of socialites that want more from life than simply a condominium tower to sleep in.
