Looking Up in The Uplands at Riverview Bike Ride imageIf you’ve been searching and touring communities, but just haven’t found one with that "special something" to make you fall in love, you mustn't give up until you see The Uplands at Riverview! This forthcoming community is rapidly developing and growing; the Uplands at Riverview could be the perfect place for you and your family to grow, too. Visiting our two new show homes (opening soon) can help you better see this vision come to fruition.

The Uplands at Riverview

Opening this summer, this already appealing and still developing community – The Uplands at Riverview – is well on its way to becoming a very popular spot for families and working couples alike. Fittingly named for its highly elevated location in Riverview, this Southwest Edmonton community near the North Saskatchewan River is growing to be a 45-acre mixed-use urban village.

It’s located close to the established community of Edgemont, which means there is already easy access to amenities like schools and recreational centres, and Anthony Henday Drive for further needs. Four golf courses and Fort Edmonton Park are also nearby, offering weekend entertainment options for the whole family.

All this plus future plans for this community will integrate a commercial site within the residential community. Site plans call for a mixed-use town centre, parks and greenways, and commercial development that will provide opportunities for business employment, while still leaving plenty of room for natural areas. The community will also have it’s own Stormwater Management Facility to ensure sustainability moving forward. 

“Mixed-use” is a term used frequently to describe the essence of The Uplands, and this continues to be true for the housing options that will be available there. With a variety of Streetscape style models to explore, there will be something to suit any lifestyle in this diverse community. Kicking it off with two brand new Pacesetter show homes opening September 2017, let’s take a look at what you can expect in The Uplands.

As part of Pacesetter’s Streetscape Series, the Pharaoh has an attached garage that sits flush with the front of the home for added curb appeal. 

You can unwind slowly as you enter this 1,919 square foot home; whether you use the front or garage entrance you'll be able to take a seat on a bench to unload. Past the useful powder room at the front of the home and through a passageway the main floor opens up to a combination kitchen, dining nook, and great room area. The kitchen is highlighted by the centre island with a flush eating bar and a corner pantry for easy and organized meal preparations. 

The second floor of this home is optimally functional. The staircase leads you to the middle of this floor. At the front of the home sits the spacious owner’s suite with a walk-in closet, and an ensuite bath featuring a water closet, double vanity, and both a standing shower and a soaker tub. A laundry room can be found just outside the owner’s suite to simplify cleaning days. On the other side of this floor, an open, multi-purpose loft area offers additional living space and the main bath offers convenience. Finally, there are two generously-sized bedrooms at the rear of the home.

Another Streetscape-style home, the front porch covered by a charming peak roof is the exterior focal point of the Austin home model

First, the entrance of this 2,432 square foot home includes a powder room as well as areas for storage. Through a passageway, your eyes will first be drawn upwards along the staircase with an open-to-above design. Continuing further into the home, you’ll enter a great room with a fireplace surrounded by a gorgeous mantle as the focal point. You'll also see an island with a flush eating bar and a walk-in pantry, which adds functionality to the kitchen and dining area connected to the great room. You also have the option of entering this home through the garage into a mudroom with ample storage space, including lockers – perfect for storing kids’ coats and backpacks. Through the mudroom, a pocket door leads you to the kitchen, enabling effortless grocery unloading.

Stepping onto the second-floor landing, you can also delight in the view permitted by the open-to-below design. Once you’re in the grand owner’s suite, a passageway directs you into the ensuite bath with a double vanity, an oval soaker tub as well as a standing shower, and a water closet. Beyond that lies a huge walk-in closet with wrap-around shelving for storage. Just before the two sizeable bedrooms at the other end of this floor, you’ll find a practical bonus room and the main bathroom. There’s also a laundry room between the two bedrooms, providing more practicality and privacy. 

With up-and-coming amenities to be discovered, and our brand new show homes opening soon, everything is looking up in The Uplands at Riverview! Tour the community today to see how your family can settle into this fresh, new community, and don’t forget to come back in September to tour two of our finest show homes yet.
