Modern living and historic charm collide in the heart of New Westminster.

Comprising historic Downtown New Westminster and a riverfront enclave called The Quay, these two desirable neighbourhoods but 30 minutes from downtown Vancouver have a front row seat to the Fraser River featuring tugs, barges and steam-powered paddlewheelers. Downtown New Westminster is located south of Royal Avenue along Columbia and Front Streets. While The Quay neighbourhood and its award-winning riverfront promenade, is located along the shores of the mighty Fraser.

In addition, The Quay is dominated by condos and a limited supply of waterfront townhomes. Today more than 27 percent of the city’s population is composed of young families and millennials, who want a place to call their own without overcommitting mortgage wise. New West’s new bylaw requires that 10 percent of new units to include family friendly three bedroom units.
