River views, cozy character homes and family friendly streets.

The triumvirate of The Heights, Sapperton and Fraserview neighbourhoods in New Westminster East are all about local history, outstanding views of the Fraser River and urban living to take you back to the 1950s & ‘60s. Diverse, family friendly and now a destination for city hipsters, the three main neighbourhoods of New Westminster East are located below 10th Avenue traveling north, Sapperton located on a slope above the Fraser River bordered by Brunette Ave to the east, Columbia Street to the south, and McBride Boulevard to the west where you’ll find both The Heights and Fraserview neighbourhoods. The Heights today is a combination of Massey Heights and Victory Heights, where numerous post-war homes were constructed for those returning home from the Second World War. Recognized as an oasis in the city, it’s still made up of mostly single family homes. The burgeoning Sapperton neighbourhood in New Westminster is home to the former site of Labatt’s Brewery, and features a new vibrant master planned community called the Brewery District including a new 15 storey, 116 home condo development. Buyers will also find a good selection of detached homes in historic Sapperton. While the sought after Fraserview neighbourhood in New Westminster East offers buyers a balanced combination of condos and townhomes, in addition to single family homes. With stunning views of tug boats and barges on the Fraser River, Fraserview is the former home of the infamous BC Penitentiary. The Heights, Sapperton & Fraserview neighbourhoods are all still undervalued compared to water views in Vancouver and the North Shore. They’re also ideally situated to Royal Columbian Hospital, one of New Westminster’s largest employers and where $1.25 billion in redevelopments are underway and will include a new 350 bed Acute Care Tower and new and expanded emergency department.

Many of the parks in the area are within easy walking distance

Getting to and from these desirable neighbourhoods in the north eastern portion of New Westminster is easy with quick access to rapid transit including 22nd, Sapperton, Braid and Columbia Skytrain Stations.
