Rail District: Urban excitement, valley vibe

It’s a unique blend of historic charm, modern sophistication, and creative artistry, a place where you can celebrate life’s rich diversity.

Introducing Rail District, a dynamic, master-planned community that’s destined to become the heart and soul of a reimagined historic downtown Abbotsford.

Social spirit lives here

Located on the site of the old Clayburn Brick Factory, there’s already a growing vibe at Rail District, a sense of community spirit seldom experienced in contemporary settings. Here, artists and family-run business owners rub shoulders with change-makers, educators and medical specialists. Coffee shop conversations are lively, and it’s common to see several generations sharing stories over lattés and bakery treats.

When complete, the Rail District will be comprised of five distinctly family-oriented neighbourhoods: Railside, Hillside, Brickyard, Ridgeline, and The Rail Plaza, each featuring townhomes, condos, retail and/or office space.

There will also be a spectacular, free-standing amenity building that’s sure to become a favourite social gathering place for residents and their guests. Known as The Station, here you’ll discover an outdoor swimming pool and kids’ play area, as well as a fireside lounge with kitchen, fitness centre, bike repair station, and a convenient co-working/business centre.



All this, plus it’s an easy, five-minute stroll to historic downtown via the new Rail Trail, a well-lit, paved walking and cycling pathway that runs alongside the Canadian Pacific Railway.

Your home, your way

After breaking ground in early 2022, Rail District’s initial neighbourhood is poised to offer five unique home types known as the Abby Townhome Series, each with its own persona and character.

The Social townhomes are entertainment-centric by design with open floorplans with the ambiance of single-family living. Three bedrooms mean plenty of space for growing families, and an extra-large, side-by-side garage with storage ensures all your sports gear and seasonal items are safely stowed.

Working from home is easy in one of the Abby Series’ Urban townhomes. Featuring two-bedrooms plus flex-space, it’s a fresh take on a live/work balance.

Love outdoor living? Rail District’s Veranda homes have you covered—literally. Boasting three bedrooms plus a flexible den, the entertaining focal point is a spacious, fully covered balcony, so weather’s never going to keep you from savouring a barbecue or al fresco dining.

The neighbourhood’s Garden homes are perfect for people with young children and four-footed family members. Each of these three-bedroom homes boasts a walk-out yard for true indoor/outdoor integration.

And for something completely different, check out the City homes, innovative, two-level, three-bedroom suites located above Rail Plaza’s retail spaces. It’s a marriage of urban vibe and ultimate convenience.

Best of all, no matter which design sings to your heart, every home comes with energy-efficient forced-air heating and a powder room with Infinity Properties’ signature shiplap feature wall. Life is good and you deserve it.

The Rail District presentation centre and four, furnished display homes open soon at 2724 Montrose Avenue in Abbotsford’s historic downtown.
