The Piano is an exquisite luxury condo development with a unique architectural design. The rounded corners and half-oval-shaped towers stand out from the typical rectangular condo tower design. The inviting features of this development make it one of the more exciting new places to live in Surrey City Centre, and its location is central to many of Surrey's iconic restaurants. The Piano's smart safety features and amenities prove that this is truly a 21st-century condo community.
An advanced Artificial Intelligence (AI) program constantly monitors water pressure in the two towers. If a pipe breaks in a typical high-rise, the water only has one direction to go: down. That usually means down to the floors below and down the elevator shaft, causing significant damage and creating a safety hazard. The AI instantly detects significant water flow deviations anywhere in the building and notifies property managers, who can initiate an instant shutdown. This protects everyone's investment in their condo long-term from water damage.
The Piano has one-, two- and three-bedroom condo units with varying balcony sizes. The interiors have two different colour schemes: Crema and Grigio. The kitchens and bathrooms have engineered stone slab countertops and innovative space-saving cabinetry. The open floor layouts and airy designs of the units ensure plenty of natural light. Stunning views and first-rate amenities round out the experience of living at the Piano.

Quinn is a new six-story condo development located about six blocks south of Holland Park in Surrey City Centre. This modern-style architectural development, with its black-framed windows, white and grey background and exposed wood surfaces, may be more attractive for some buyers when compared to a traditional high-rise building. One-bedroom suites start at 652 square feet at Quinn, and two-bedroom units have up to 1,015 square feet.
The spacious interior design of the condos at Quinn allows for full-sized appliances in the kitchens and bedrooms large enough for king-sized beds. Each unit has its own balcony. The height of the building does make it stand out in a residential neighbourhood, but the natural design of Quinn lets it blend in. The building is next to Queen Elizabeth Meadows Park, providing a green space for residents to enjoy.
Even though Quinn is slightly south of the City Centre, it has more shopping options within range of the development. The Quinn's location also makes it great for residents to access Surrey's best outdoor activities. The Cedar Hills Shopping Centre is directly west of Quinn, and the Central City Shopping Centre is directly north.
