The Ridge, Nanaimo's First Traffic-Calmed Neighbourhood

The Ridge


You've Arrived. The Ridge - A Liveable Community

The Ridge is Nanaimo’s most liveable new community, located in the upscale Hammond Bay area of North Nanaimo at the top of Glen Oaks Drive. Phase 1 of the project combines 46 mountainside lots and 34 Built Green® certified townhomes providing a unique alternative to traditional suburban developments. The 64 acre plan protects the beauty of the existing environment and reduces the amount of pavement to conserve green space. Durable, energy-efficient and attractive homes are set in a traffic-calmed neighbourhood with narrower streets, parking pods, and leafy sidewalks; all bordering 400 aces of forested walking trails and parkland.

The townhomes at The Ridge, designed by AIBC architect Peter J Dandyk, combine quality craftsmanship with contemporary design clad in natural materials that blend seamlessly with the outdoor surroundings. Floor plans range in size from 1,400 to 2,000 sq.ft. with options for two-bedroom ranchers, and two- and three-bedroom split-level homes. Offering a unique approach to typical townhome developments, The Ridge residences are “clustered” in groups of two or three homes to offer residents more privacy and give the feeling of living in a detached home. Featuring gourmet kitchens, spacious floor plans, premium finishings, and eco-efficiencies throughout, The Ridge townhomes are setting a new benchmark for stylish, sustainable living in Nanaimo.

The Phase 1 townhomes, One Oak, are now sold out, and construction on the Phase 2 townhomes is anticipated to begin in 2016. Phase 2 single-family lots are now for sale.
