There’s a gem on the northern banks of the Fraser River in Vancouver: A brand new master-planned community known as the River District will transform purposefully over time, giving an amenity-rich town centre for residents to celebrate and shop, commune with nature and gather with friends on its sun-drenched shores.

Situated at the most prestigious location of the River District is Shoreline by Polygon – a limited collection of waterfront apartment homes that will soon break ground. Featuring a modern West Coast architecture, the buildings at Shoreline convey a very distinct character.

“The architecture boasts clean lines and uses lots of glass. It reminds me of the waterfront properties in the trendy South East False Creek neighbourhood,” said Sales Manager Waylin Cheng. “What is also unique about these two concrete buildings is that they are truly boutique-style – just five and seven storeys.”

The residences at Shoreline range from one-bedroom homes starting at $299,900 for 620 square feet, to two bedroom homes that feature up to 1,180 square feet of living spaces. Some of the homes also have very large private southern-facing decks. Using the latest desirable finishes, each home includes premium Bosch appliances, imported marble backsplash, and sleek engineered stone countertops. The bathroom’s matching backsplash, floating cabinetry, and soaker tub or walk-in shower add to the sense of luxury. With construction expected to begin this fall, your Shoreline home will be move-in ready by mid-2015.

“We’re seeing a great deal of interest from couples and families looking to make Shoreline their new home; they love the community’s centrally located courtyard with a children’s play area,” added Cheng. “But we’re also attracting people who are ready to downsize. They really like that there will be an onsite resident manager for added service. And, everyone loves that there will be a fully equipped fitness centre for the exclusive use of residents.”

Being part of Vancouver’s newest residential community has many perks. Miles of green trails are literally right outside your Shoreline door. The neighbourhood’s River District Centre is just steps away with the ever-popular Romer’s Burger Bar and a farmers market that operates Saturdays between May and October. These amenities hold the promise of what’s coming soon to the area: work is now underway on the River District town centre retail district which will include various grocery stores, drugstores, shops, restaurants and cafes. Once complete, this master-planned community will also include 25 acres of green space, new parks and playing fields along with two new schools, a community centre and daycares. Shopping destinations such as Metropolis at Metrotown, Champlain Square and Marine Way Market are also nearby.

“Shoreline has a great central location,” said Cheng. “We’re just five minutes from Richmond, seven minutes from Metrotown and 20 minutes from downtown Vancouver. It’s also a quick ride to connect with the Canada Line.” Polygon built more than 22,000 homes throughout the Lower Mainland since 1980 and Shoreline is its third community in Vancouver’s River District. As a quality builder you can trust, Polygon has a strong commitment to quality design, sound construction and exceptional customer service.

The two-bedroom homes at Shoreline are priced from $359,900. Ask about our special financing promotion available for a limited time. Stop by the Shoreline presentation centre at 8688 Kerr Street in Vancouver just south of Marine Drive. It’s open daily (except Fridays) from noon to 6 p.m.
