Amenities at WeTown
The focus is to build a sustainable community and tech campus that promotes walkability, connection, and a healthy lifestyle. Buildings include residential homes, office space and commercial retail, including a farmers market. WeTown will also include a convention centre and hotel, university campus, and preserved parkland. The driving concept behind the development is the idea of making Abbotsford a remote tech hub, benefitting from its location near the U.S. border as well as Vancouver.
The plan aims to break up the large, existing commercial blocks on South Fraser Way and create a more walkable, human-scale community that can serve as an official “city centre” and accommodate up to 10,000 more residents.
