The multi-building ViewStar development continues to transform a slice of the Richmond riverfront since our last update in the fall of 2019. The mixed-use development designed by W. T. Leung Architects for developer Yuanheng Holdings is altering the Richmond skyline, and upon completion, will include three blocks of high-density development next to the future Capstan SkyTrain station on No. 3 Road.

ViewStar is divided into three disparate precincts: Northside, Southside and Riverside. The Northside parcel is focused the work-life balance, mixing a contemporary collection of condominiums and townhomes with a commercial office tower and a 35,000-square-foot community centre, slated to become the largest in Richmond.

Southside is where the bulk of the residences are currently being constructed. Terraced rooftop gardens join a private elevated central park and over 130,000 square feet of amenities, including an indoor pool, children's play areas, fire pits, entertainment rooms and music practice rooms.

The Riverside area fronting the Fraser River features additional residences, including four-bedroom, single-floor homes.

The most recent images from the Forum show the present state of the development's Southside phase, consisting of six mid-rise buildings. A total of 850 units will eventually be built across the three-block property.
