The riverfront community simultaneously embraces it’s roots while fostering vibrant, authentic public spaces that are walkable and amenity-rich. Built before the rise of the automobile, New West is one of the most walkable cities in the province.
With beautiful south-facing views of the Fraser River and plenty of sun, The Beverley is not only more affordable than Vancouver, it’s surrounded by character, artist studios, indie cafes, and old parks, that make New Westminster such a hip, wonderful place to live. A short walk away is the New Westminster SkyTrain Station, which offers a Safeway, Shoppers Drug Mart, two banks, several shops, and a new 10-screen cinema. A few more steps from here takes you to the Anvil Centre with a multi-use civic facility that includes a 350-seat theatre, a Class A LEED gold office tower, an art gallery and studios, conference facilities, the Canadian Lacrosse Hall of Fame, and the new location of the city’s museum and archives.
River Market, the newly renovated New Westminster Quay, is a community treasure right at your doorstep. It now boasts a Donald’s Market, the second location of Gastown’s The Network Hub, Vancouver Circus School, Great Wall Tea Company, a gelato café, a pub with a killer patio, and the permanent location of the Re-Up BBQ food cart. The market also fronts a long boardwalk on the Fraser River and neighbours the luxury hotel Inn At The Quay, The Boathouse, and The Keg.
Character streets and a picturesque waterfront esplanade within a hub-like central location between Vancouver and the burgeoning Fraser Valley, fantastic connections both to downtown and rapidly expanding Surrey, and idyllic waterfront lifestyle, New Westminster is a place to live well.
