Mill District at the Heart of Abbotsford Renaissance

December 6, 2016

Abbotsford offers the best of a thriving urban centre matched by a serene natural environment and strong sense of community.This is where Heinrichs Developments introduces Mill District – a premier collection of one- to four-bedroom parkside residences in the Mill Lake neighbourhood.

Peaceful and connected, the location offers unparalleled access to Mill Lake and acres of parkland with urban conveniences just steps away. At neighbouring Mill Lake Park, residents will enjoy wandering along the lake’s floating boardwalk, which features two kilometres of walking paths and nature trails that weave around the lake, as well as several picnic areas and a playground for young children. Bringing a new level of sophistication to Abbotsford, Mill District will inspire an exceptional quality of life. 

If you have ever desired to live in a vibrant city that offers a unique blend of urban appeal and rural charm, then Mill District is for you. This contemporary collection of 82 homes arriving in early 2017 offers spacious residences ranging from 684 to 1,668 square feet. A rare opportunity for parkside living in the heart of an urban centre – Sevenoaks Shopping Centre and array of dining destinations are within walking distance, with local grocers, farmers’ markets, a community centre and more all nearby.

Encompassing two eye-catching, six-storey low-rises, Mill Lake was designed by David Tyrell Architecture to reflect the forward-thinking trend of this emerging district – modern, simple, with clarity of form. “Truth in expression of the materials with an emphasis on the horizontal and vertical planes defines Mill District’s contemporary style”, says David Tyrell.  

“I see the development helping to drive the future redevelopment of the context rather than the reverse,” says the award-winning architect. “The exterior materials are low maintenance, environmentally friendly and locally sourced whenever possible, while the shading elements, such as trellis, are included to help reduce solar gain.”

When it came to the interiors, i3 Design’s director of interior design, Lisa Perry, also took her cue from Abbotsford’s connection to the outdoors: “This city has that urban country feel. Parts of Abbotsford have hundreds of years of history and heritage, so we wanted to showcase that in the interiors. They were conceived with timeless finishes, complemented by warm tones and a natural, fresh palette.”

Situated in the highly connected Mill Lake neighbourhood, just minutes from great schools and recreation facilities with convenient access to Highway 1, the USA border and beyond – residents will be delighted by all the conveniences and amenities offered here. It is also minutes from the Abbotsford International Airport – the second-largest airport in the Lower Mainland after Vancouver International Airport (YVR) and the only other airport to host major airlines.

Built by Heinrichs Developments, a well-respected developer with a reputation for outstanding quality, Mill District is a testament to the company’s vision and integrity. Intelligently designed and impeccably crafted, it’s West Coast living at its best.
