Quattro Apartment Homes in Surrey
One of the most affordable presales Surrey condominium properties released this year is the Quattro apartment condos in Surrey. The first phase of Surrey’s Quattro condos sold out in merely a week.

Surrey Quattro Condos Blaze ‘Suspicious’ says RCMP - Update on Quattro Fire
SURREY Real Estate Update on the fire that has engulfed the master-planned Surrey Quattro condominium residences according to MetroNews: Investigators are treating a large Surrey fire that flattened a new condo real estate development as suspicious, Surrey RCMP Sgt. Morrrow said yesterday. “There’s not yet been any determination as to the causse or any indication of accelerants,” he said of Wednesday’s blaze. On Monday, a small intentionally set fire was lit in the same new Quattro condo Surrey building. Police have combined both investigations together now. Hundreds of people, some armed with phot and video cameras, watched the fire at the new presale Quattro Condominium tower residences in Surrey BC and police are appealing to the public to provide them with copies. “That coule pose an absolute key to our investigation,” Morrow said. The Quattro fire brok out at 4pm on Wednesday, and took four hours to contain, engulfing the second phase of the Surrey real estate development at Quattro condos in flames. While no one was injured, some fire fighters suffered from heat exhaustion. Developer Charan Sethi said he’s “heartbroken” over the destruction but vows to rebuild the Quattro Phase 2 Surrey condo building that has been literally destroyed by the blaze. “This is not going to hold me down,” he said. “I’m going to proceed with it as much as I can and as much as the insurance companies allow me to do.” Sethi says he doesn’t know if new Surrey Quattro condo homeowners and new home buyers at Quattro Phase 2 condominiums will have the option to back out, but is imploring them to “be patient with us.” Maria C. for Metro Vancouver. The Quattro Condominuims in a Nutshell: 116 condo units, average value of $215,000 each, were lost in the Quattro Surrey blaze. The second phase condominium building at Quattro sold out in pre-construction in 67 minutes in March 2007. The low-rise Surrey Quattro condo building was worth about $30-million. According to the Vancouver Sun, the Surrey Quattro fire has destroyed a total of 116 housing condos that were under construction in Whalley's Quattro real estate development. The building that was completely burned was Quattro Phase 2 residential apartment building and RCMP officials are still trying to determine the cause of the fire. On Wednesday, October 1st, 2008, a blaze engulfed these affordable Surrey condos at Quattro Phase II at the 107A Ave and East Whalley Ring Road. The other two Quattro Whalley condominium buildings have remaining unscathed (for Phase 1 and Phase 3 aparttments). According to RCMP, there seemed to be materials inside the Quattro four storey building that were set intentionally on fire. The Whalley Quattro fire in Surrey real estate moved very quickly and RCMP had some troubles handling the blaze at first, but had it under control relatively quickly. About five major crime investigators are now working on the Surrey Quattro fire to determine if a foul crime is involved in this blaze. The RCMP are calling on witnesses with photos or videos to come forward as this may help their investigation. The massive four hectare Surrey real estate development was to add over one thousand new affordable Whalley condominiums in three phases to this neighbourhood. There is currently no word as to whether current presale home owners and pre-construction homebuyers can opt out of their condo contracts with the builder, but it is certainly something they can take to their lawyers for review of the Agreement to Purchase. Right now, the Surrey condos Quattro fire is deemed as suspicious. The developer is seeking to start Quattro Phase 2 building again as soon as he can and vows to complete the four storey residential building barring any unforseen insurance problems coming up. Right now, he pleeds to current pre-sales Quattro home buyers to have patience. The new Whalley Surrey Quattro fire blaze is very surprising to say the least.

Real Estate Investors are Locked into the Quattro Surrey Project
Property developer plans to rebuild the fire-ravaged condo construction complex in Surrey real estate market. By Jeff H. for the MetroNews Vancouver regarding the recent Surrey Quattro fire that destroyed several residential buildings under construction. Investors in the fire-destroyed Quattro condominium fire in Surrey reale state market hoping to cash out of the cooling real estate market saw their hopes go up in smoke yesterday. Charan Sethi, the real estate developer behind the 1,100 unit mixed residential and commercial Quattro Surrey property development, told town hall style meeting outside Quattro apartment homes that he remains committed to the project and plans to rebuilt. But at least one of the home buyers said he had hoped that the October 1st fire that razed Quattro 2 condominiums to the underground parkade would allow hime to get his money back. “The realtor who sold it to us phoned us up and told us the unit was on fire,” said Claus Sandhack, following the meeting yesterday. “We were happy. We thought we’re going to be able to get out.” Claus and his wife, Carrie, bought a pre-sale Quattro suite in Surrey real estate’s Quattro 2 building, speculating that its value would increase. The complex was hyped as bringing Yaletown to Whalley. “It cost me $308,000. In two years is it going to be worth $200,000? A $150,000?” Other home buyers, however, were more optimistic. Noel Hardy, who purchased a pre-construction Whalley Quattro 2 condo as a Surrey real estate investment, liked what he heard. “We’re here for the long haul. We’re going to stick with this developer… this area is going to be very attractive moving forward.” Meanwhile, the RCMP are investigating the cause of the Surrey Quattro 2 condo fire, the second at the site in less than a week. Developer Charan Sethi said he didn’t know when the buildings would be completed, especially the rebuilding of the Quattro 2 condos, but said he would have a better idea in 10 days to three weeks.
