ParkLane Homes is commencing development of the River District – a new community of 130 acres located in southeast Vancouver on the Fraser River. The property, formerly known as East Fraserlands, was previously the Canadian White Pine Mill and is one of the last pieces of undeveloped waterfront land in the city.

The River District development plan is based on the principles of New Urbanism and features a well-planned mix of townhomes, low- and mid-rise apartments and high-rise towers. The future phases of the community will also include shops, a grocery and small format retail, a community plaza, two new schools, a community centre, park space and a waterfront pier.

ParkLane is also announcing that it will partner on the first phase of the project with veteran homebuilder Polygon Homes.
