Urban development award for East Fraserlands project

November 29, 2012

River District Centre has received an Award for Excellence from the Urban Development Institute for its “Outside the Box” approach to design and real estate marketing.

The 6,200 sq. ft. project — designed by architects at Hughes Condon Marler with structural collaboration from Fast + Epp — was built as a sustainable, modular facility to house interactive exhibits, models and communicate the overall vision for community revitalization in the East Fraserlands River District.

The UDI Awards recognize leaders in urban development and are the most prestigious form of peer-to-peer recognition for completed development projects in the Lower Mainland, Okanagan and Vancouver Island.
