As part of the UDistrict vision to turn the area surrounding the University of the Fraser Valley into a walkable, bike-friendly neighbourhood, Diverse Properties is transforming the former Towne Cinema site on McCallum Road into a residential development with a mixture of rental apartments and townhomes. Cinema District will soon offer two mid-rise rental apartment buildings with 75 suites each, and 73 3-storey townhomes — each with a spacious private rooftop patio that is ideal for entertaining while enjoying vivid Fraser Valley sunsets.
Conveniently located near the intersection of King and McCallum Roads, Cinema District will be ideal for university faculty, staff, and students. It’s just a short walk from the evolving University Village, centred on University Way North, that will be framed by wide sidewalks, a lush tree canopy, and street furnishings. Patio space for cafés and restaurants will give people the opportunity to gather and mingle before and after events at the university or Abbotsford Centre. The street may also be closed off for major events to create a public plaza.
Floor Plans for Cinema District
Cinema District’s 73 3-storey townhomes include 40 conventional units — of which 20 have secondary suites that can be rented — 26 back-to-back residences, and 7 units fronting McCallum Road that may include a live/work studio space or secondary suite.
