Few communities in Metro Vancouver offer an elegant waterfront lifestyle with quick, convenient access to almost every major destination in the Lower Mainland. And none are award-winning, master-planned communities like River Green, with a cultivated aesthetic sensibility guiding the development of the homes and their park-like setting. River Green is unique in its meticulously crafted vision and its location. As the new centre of Metro Vancouver, it offers more than a place to live – it offers a lifestyle without limits.
Examine a map and you’ll see that River Green is unique in Metro Vancouver for the easy access it offers – by both car and transit – to Vancouver, Burnaby, Richmond’s entertainment and shopping districts, Vancouver International airport, and Highway 99 to Seattle and Whistler. Situated at the north end of Richmond, between the No. 2 Road and Dinsmore Bridges on the Fraser River, the community is perfectly located for effortless travel to work, school, recreation and locations abroad.
We want every stage of your journey to feel effortless, which is why we offer a private shuttle between River Green and the nearby Canada Line SkyTrain station. Among the many benefits – you’ll never need to worry about parking at Vancouver International Airport again. In just 15 minutes, the SkyTrain whisks you from Brighouse-Richmond Station to the airport terminal. From the same station, you can travel to the BC Ferries terminal in Tsawwassen by bus. Of course, if you do wish to drive, the airport can be reached in 10 minutes, the ferry terminal in 30 minutes, the US border in 35 minutes, and the snow-capped mountains of Whistler in 2 hours.
If you love to attend sporting events, shows, theatre and fine dining in Vancouver, you can reach the city’s business, shopping and entertainment districts in just 30 minutes on the Canada Line. For entertainment and shopping closer to home, our private shuttle to Richmond Centre Mall gives you access to more than 200 shops, services and restaurants – with city services and cultural events a short walk away at Richmond City Hall, Central Public Library, and Art Gallery. For high-end fashion finds, visit McArthurGlen designer outlet mall near the airport, which features more than 60 favourite brands – from Armani to Michael Kors. Finish your day at the River Rock Casino Resort, with gaming, fine dining, and shows featuring well-known international performers.
Across the street from River Green, you’ll find a large selection of groceries and Asian food products at the T&T Supermarket, with Costco, Save-On-Foods and the Real Canadian Superstore just a short drive away. Nearby, one of Canada’s most unique shopping districts, “The Golden Village”, offers authentic Asian fashion, lifestyle products, and food at both Aberdeen and Yaohan Centres. The Village’s Alexandra Road is home to more than 200 restaurants in just three short blocks, ranging from traditional family-style Chinese restaurants and Korean and Japanese eateries, to contemporary pan-Asian bistros run by up-and-coming chefs.
While Richmond is regularly cited as one of the healthiest cities in Canada, it’s good to know that Richmond General Hospital is just minutes away, and that nearby offices are home to specialists, general practitioners, dentists and pharmacies. The hospital offers a full range of care: a 24/7 emergency department, diagnostic services, surgery, intensive care, coronary care, and a maternity department. Aspac Developments does its part to ensure that health care remains strong in our community by being a loyal supporter of the Richmond Hospital Foundation.
River Green’s proximity to transit hubs and major traffic corridors makes it an ideal location for students. The University of British Columbia is a 20-minute drive away, and Kwantlen Polytechnic University, Trinity Western University, and BCIT’s Aerospace Technology campus are all within a five-minute drive. The SkyTrain provides service near Langara College, Simon Fraser University’s downtown campus, and the new Emily Carr University of Art and Design. Elementary and secondary school students have a wide range of options in Richmond, from Pythagoras Academy, an independent school with after-school classes in Mandarin language, music and dance, to Richmond Secondary School, which offers an International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Program.
If golf is your sport, River Green is a short drive from no fewer than seven golf courses in Richmond and Vancouver, including Quilchena Golf and Country Club. A network of local walking, jogging and cycling trails trace the waterfront and run through nearby parks: Terra Nova Rural Park, Minoru Park and Richmond Nature Park. For fitness options right on your doorstep, all homeowners at River Green have a full membership in the Richmond Olympic Oval, which offers everything from yoga, Pilates and weight-training classes, to court sports, indoor soccer and skating.
