A symbol of modern living, the High-Rise building has actually been used throughout history. There is evidence that High-Rise buildings were present 2000 years ago in ancient Rome, though made of mud and sticks and not particularly safe. They were also seen in circular structures in China 700 years ago. Some buildings used 500 years ago in Yemen can still be seen today. At the turn of the last century, High-Rise buildings began to solidify their place in urban centres, as you can see with the development of High-Rise condos for sale in Burnaby. Especially in the downtown core. The industrial revolution created the need to bring more workers closer to work and elevators and concrete made them functional. Public housing then pushed the volume of High-Rise condos for sale in and around cities all over the globe. The original reinforced concrete and steel buildings of the mid-century are slowly being replaced by glass condo towers in city centres and megacities. Units are shrinking but public and shared use spaces are increasing by way of amenities like community meeting space, party rooms, fitness centres and even theatres. This, along with the more thoughtful use of the areas that surround these buildings is meant to create livable communities. These living communities will have access to daily needs and services and connected to the larger communities that surround them. Today's best High-Rise condos for sale offer choices for unit style and design, extra amenities to increase community involvement, green space that is cared for by maintenance fees and ground-floor businesses.

Building to building, units have a huge range for layout, upgrades, amenities, ceiling heights and storage space. A buyer or renter will need to know what's on their priority list or they risk being overwhelmed by the choices. One commonality will probably be floor to ceiling windows.
