Wisteria Place

Wisteria Place embodies a uniquely innovative, forward-thinking architectural philosophy: Life in harmony. The concept of Life in harmony extends to the residents living within Wisteria Place, the building, and its place within Richmond: people, place, and community.

Wisteria Place simultaneously stands out with distinction among its culturally diverse neighborhood while fitting in like it was always there. Asian-inspired aesthetics complement the harmonious way of life found within Wisteria Place’s walls. It is a design that considers the past while looking to the future: one full of harmony that the Wisteria Place community can help usher in.

Harmony with the surrounding community begins with Steveston Buddhist Temple, which stood when Wisteria Place was built. Our relationship is both literal and spiritual. Together we serve as landmarks and community hubs, places where residents become community members and neighbours feel welcome.

Everything about Wisteria Place fosters life in harmony and community integration. Its design embraces the clean lines and neutral palette of Steveston’s Asian community while promoting resident-centred design choices. The result is harmony among people, across cultures, the community, and nature.

Amenities invite a lifestyle rich in friends, family, and fun. Asian-inspired activities such as meditation, tai chi, and yoga, walking groups, art classes, and outings encourage fitness and engagement with the community. Fall detection, security, and dining are top-of-the-line.
