Six months since we last checked in at the site of BOSA Properties' 33- and 28-storey RiverSky residential development in New Westminster, and the "twin" towers have now all but reached structural completion. The towers' signature aquamarine glass spandrel has now been installed across much of the development, save for the for the white spandrel accents which can be found on both towers and portions of the podium.

The NSDA Architects-designed development will soon be home to upwards of 800 residents, to be spread across 519 units. The sprawling, five-storey podium base will connect the base of each tower, the top four floors to be used for parking, with space left over for a large ground floor retail component.

Finishing touches are still being applied here and there, as viewed in the images above as captured from the base of the tower. The top of each tower has been graced with a crown, described by the architect as "lantern-like penthouse expressions," the top-floors of each to be home to the largest available units.

Located at 1000 Quayside Drive, along the banks of the Fraser River, and within easy walking distance to the New Westminster SkyTrain station and central business district, RiverSky will be a popular address for those looking for convenient access to nature, transit, and services. Once complete, RiverSky will be a welcome addition to New Westminster, part of the Vancouver suburb's urban transformation. 

SkyriseVancouver will be sure to return to this project as progress continues. For more information, check out the associated Database file and Forum thread, and as always, feel free to join the conversation in the comments section below.
