An open concept design idea will maximize every available inch.

Many southwest-facing suites will enjoy corridor water views, while folks in southeast-facing suites will love their water and bridge views.
Interiors at Modern Presale Condo in the West End
Buyers will choose from two distinct colour schemes (basically light or dark). High-end interiors will have roller blinds (not venetians!) and Fisher Paykel and Bosch stainless steel appliances in the kitchen. Touches like under-mounted sinks, quartz stone countertops, even ‘soft close’ fridges will give kitchens a sleek, modern look.
Look forward to an open concept floor plan and 8’ ceilings, too. You can also stay comfortable without any guilt with the efficient, environmentally-friendly Air Cooling systems. Many suites in this West End condo development will come with walk-in closets and fully-tiled showers.
Expect engineered hardwood floors in living spaces and wool carpets in the bedrooms.
