Three months since our last update, and finishing touches at the "twin" tower RiverSky development in New Westminster have moved into their end stage. While work upon the first, 28-storey tower has been done for some time, the second, 33-storey tower has now begun to narrow the gap.

Designed by NSDA Architects for Bosa Properties, the 519-unit RiverSky will soon be home to upwards of 800 residents. Located at 1000 Quayside Drive, along the banks of the Fraser River, and within easy striking distance of the New Westminster SkyTrain station, the high-density development is the perfect fit for those looking for a balance of convenience and local amenities.

Connected by a large, 5-storey podium base, to be used for parking (top 4 floors) and retail (ground floor), RiverSky's "twin" towers will allow for easy passage from one to the other. Moreover, given the sheer size of the development, and its placement within the heart of New Westminster, the large retail inclusion will more than likely be a very welcome addition.

Altogether, RiverSky will represent a major influx of new residents into the community, New Westminster quickly becoming a hotspot for displaced Vancouverites hungry for a place to call home. 

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.
