A vision that’s coming to life

River District is Southeast Vancouver’s newest and largest waterfront community.  River District, an award-winning project being developed by Wesgroup Properties, will be a complete community with unique sustainability features.  Covering 130 acres and including 7,000 homes, River District will include shops, restaurants, schools, daycares, parks and a community centre. Designed by a world-class team of planners, architects and engineers, River District will offer a new way to live, work and play in Vancouver.

There will be five neighbourhoods once the project is complete.  In the west, Hill Point is perched atop the north side of the property with views of the Fraser. The homes will be townhomes and low-rise condominiums, set in small blocks around intimate gardens. South of that, fronting the river, will be Pier Point, aptly named after its iconic pier. Condominium apartments here will offer easy access to tree-lined trails by the water.

In the centre, Mill Bay will be the hub of the new community, with retail stores mixed with high-rise homes and townhouses leading down to the bay that bears its name. Above Mill Bay is The Crescent, so called for its distinctive street shape, providing easy and convenient access to and from the community.

To the east is Avalon, named for the extensive park that repeat. The area has a great expanse of public greenspace for sport and recreation. Here, homes will be multi-family, many with excellent elevated views over the river towards Mount Baker.
