Riverfront living at Parc Riviera

Parc Riviera features modern kitchens and amazing views

Richmond is known as the Island City By Nature, and nowhere is this more evident than at Parc Riviera, in scenic North Richmond.

“This is a waterfront location with a ton of green space,” says sales and marketing director Dave Bauman. “The dyke trail is right in your front yard.”

Along with the dyke, there is five acres of park and green space right in Parc Riviera, as well as family picnic areas and playgrounds for the kids. There is also a large clubhouse on-site with a lap pool, hot tub, fitness centre, lounge and a 5,500-square-foot daycare facility. There are plans in the works for a restaurant and retail space in the future.

“People love the life on the river,” Bauman says. “It’s hard to beat that.”

In order to maximize the views from every home, the buildings will be constructed in a stepped design from four to six storeys.

The two- and three-bedroom homes in a range of condominium and townhome floorplans are spacious and open, with nine-foot ceilings and chic hardwood flooring throughout the living and dining areas. There will be outdoor space for every home, including an oversized balcony with granite tile flooring.

The modern kitchens feature quartz countertops complemented by a glass tile backsplash, under-cabinet LED lighting and stainless-steel appliances, including a gas cooktop. Select homes will include a convenient breakfast bar as well.

The bathrooms are luxurious and relaxing, with their own quartz countertops and a full-height imported porcelain shower surround with polished accents. A soaker tub from Maax is also included in the bathroom, along with large-format imported porcelain tile flooring.

Parc Riviera will be located just two minutes from the Oak Street bridge, Bauman says. This makes for an easy commute for those working outside of Richmond. The Vancouver International Airport is easily accessible, as well as the Knight Street Bridge and East-West Connector/Highway 91. Shopping is less than five minutes away, along with dining and elementary and secondary education at one of Richmond’s excellent schools. If you’re in the mood for some exercise beyond the dyke, the Richmond Olympic Oval and Cambie Community Centre are just minutes away by car.

“This is a master-planned community that offers a great value,” Bauman says.

The first phase is currently selling. Homes at Parc Riviera start at the mid-$200,000s for a condo and low $400,000s for a townhome. For more information, visit www.parcriviera.com or call 604-231-5900.
