Riverstone has exceptional views of the South Saskatchewan River valley and given that it is designed to blend into the riverbank, a base of the rock and heavy timber detailing was applied to provide an aesthetic characteristic of its natural setting in its prairie environment. The project benefited from Alvin Reinhard Fritz Architect Inc.’s 20 years of experience in the adult residential market, and all of the key criteria developed over these years was implemented.
Yet to be realized is an impressive amenity core which is separated out from the base of the building to provide acoustic isolation along with future accessibility via the parkade structure. The amenity core features a clock tower which will be visible from across the river and will give Riverstone a sense of place in its natural setting.
