'Micro Suites' could be the new trend in Greater Vancouver Condo Developments

Minimalists rejoice!
A condo development in Surrey is awaiting City Council approval to begin constructing a building containing Canada’s smallest condos.  With only 290-305 sqft you may have a hard time fitting your king sized bedroom suite and other furniture into this tiny apartment. However this size is perfect for young adults who want a well designed open layout and don’t need any superfluous space.  The idea behind the concept follows other buildings in Vancouver (Burns Block on Hastings), New York, Tokyo, Paris, and London. This suite is perfect for city-living work-oriented young adults who don’t yet have the salary for a condo/home within walking distance to public transportation.  The building is called ‘Balance’ and will be part of the ‘Quattro’ Complex just steps from Gateway Skytrain Station in Surrey which is extremely convenient for students attending SFU’s Surrey Campus or for those who work in Downtown Vancouver.  Sales are expected to start January 2013 if the City of Surrey gives the go ahead.
