Riverside is a brand-new community characterized by its proximity to St. Albert’s Sturgeon River, Big Lake and the White Spruce Forest. An outdoor lover’s delight, this nature-friendly neighbourhood offers residents over 145 acres of mature forest, beautiful parkland and scenic walking trails, just moments from their doorstep.
Entirely one-of-a-kind, Riverside is also home to a variety of beautifully crafted, affordable home styles and provides convenient access to some of the best amenities St. Albert and North Edmonton have to offer.
Home styles in Riverside consist predominantly of affordable, functional duplexes and spacious, single-family models – each and every one built to the high-quality and standards today’s modern buyers have come to know and expect from a brand-new build.
Duplexes – Riverside’s duplex models are strikingly roomy and remarkably family-friendly. Notable features include a minimum of three bedrooms (including a luxurious master suite), double or single front-attached garage, open-concept main floor, walk-through pantry and upper floor laundry.
