Crescendo: Crescent living—a lifestyle within reach.

Crescendo Suites comprises 73 spacious condominiums in 2 buildings, with Whistler-inspired architecture, solid cedar beams, posts and trusses. The development is centered around a lush, landscaped common courtyard with views of North Shore Mountains.

With spacious, 9-foot high ceilings throughout, this 1087 square-foot, 2-bedroom unit feels spacious and comfortable due to the open concept kitchen, living and dining areas, with large windows bringing in plenty of natural light.

The wide-plank laminate hardwood flooring throughout provides an added level of value, and with 2 private decks, residents enjoy plenty opportunity for outdoor enjoyment and entertaining.

The master bedroom feels private, and special with a large walk-in closet, luxurious ensuite and private deck that overlooks views of mountains to the North.

Crescendo’s modern kitchen features shaker-style cabinets with premium hardware, soft close doors and drawers, and a delightful chevron-patterned tiled backsplash. Under cabinet lighting is perfect for food preparation, with additional track lighting offering general lighting. Sleek glass pendants suspended over the breakfast bar, highlighting the gorgeous Quartz countertops exuding a clean, even glamourous, look.

Under-mount, double-bowl kitchen sink elevates functionality, while stainless steel appliances feature French doors with bottom freezer drawer, a popular option among present-day consumers.
