River District residents enjoy a healthier, sustainable, and quality lifestyle in a diverse, connected community. From condominiums and townhomes to rental apartments and co-ops, a variety of housing choices welcome a mix of people spanning a range of life stages.
Designed from the ground up as a complete community, this means satisfying all your day-to-day needs within steps of your front door. The vibrant Town Centre is River District’s commercial focal point, where you’ll find a supermarket, pharmacy, pet supply store, gym, financial services, cafés, restaurants, shops, and professional services.
The Waterfront Precinct is destined to become the community’s gathering space. A 10,000-square-foot community centre offers residents year-round leisure and recreation programs. An adjacent public plaza, bordered by café and restaurant space, furnishes grounds to host colourful events and festivals.
For River District families, childcare facilities, an elementary school, a secondary school, sports fields, and playgrounds will provide for their children’s education and activity needs locally. Over 27 acres of parks and green spaces reintroduce nature to restore ecological vitality to this former industrial site.
River District’s development plan favours active transportation over private vehicle use. Landscaped pedestrian linkages between buildings and the 1.5-kilometre Fraser River Greenway encourage walking. On-street and off-street cycle routes with bike share stations conveniently connect the West Fraser Lands and South Vancouver with Burnaby to the east. Bus services link to SkyTrain at Metrotown and the Canada Line at Marine Drive Station for travel outside the community.
