Reconnecting historic downtown Vancouver to its long-vacant and separated waterfront, RiverWest represents the unification of past and present, helping define a radically new experience along the Columbia River and activating a new urban district.

RiverWest, known as Block 8 of the 32-acre Waterfront Urban Masterplan, is an entire block of mixed-use apartment/retail space located in the heart of the emerging development. Concurrent with the park, pier, and other first phase projects, it is setting precedents in terms of design quality and materiality, urban engagement, city design review processes, and impact in the creation of a newly built environment.

In keeping with the Waterfront’s commitment to sustainable community and innovation, RiverWest was awarded a LEED Platinum® rating by the US Green Building Council; a first in Vancouver for the Multifamily Midrise classification.

The building consists of 206 units with 20,000 sq ft of commercial space. There are three levels of parking (238 spaces) with the upper parking deck providing direct access to apartment
units; a unique experience for residents.

Building amenities include EV charging stations, pet washroom, secure bike parking, package lockers, bluetooth access control hardware, workout room, and a third floor clubhouse with large folding doors that open to the exterior courtyard offering dramatic views.

Residents will benefit from the convenience of many features within a short walk, including an impressive array of restaurants, bars, and shops planned as part of the waterfront development and Grant Street Pier, in addition to direct connection to the waterfront park promenade that will form part of the Columbia River Renaissance Trail.
