The Sapperton community is experiencing a phase of rebirth, as the development of Brewery District continues to blossom into New Westminster’s flourishing and trendy urban hub.
Recently featured in the Globe and Mail, Wesgroup’s senior vice president of development, Beau Jarvis, highlights the evolution of Brewery District becoming a complete city of its own – filled with working, dining, shopping, health and residential amenities.
The transit-oriented mixed use development has grown from its historic roots; initially founded by British military engineers called ’Sappers’ and was once the old capital of British Columbia. Since Wesgroup’s acquisition of the area, low rise commercial buildings have been built to accommodate a diverse range of retail and office tenants, all of which are in close proximity to the Sapperton SkyTrain station.
With the first of four residential towers – The Sapperton – now being introduced in Brewery District, a new phase of development within the neighbourhood has begun. This addition incorporates the final component of the mixed-use master plan, reviving the old capital of British Columbia into a thriving urban hub of its own.
