Riverwalk at Riverstone: Retail on the Rise
July 26, 2020
Whether it’s the abundance of family-friendly parks, or the wide variety of new homes from six homebuilders, or the future 15.5-acre Stone Creek Elementary school, the 2,000-acre Riverstone is clearly a new-home community that knows how to think big. And its biggest thinking to date—in terms of both size and forward-looking creativity—is Riverwalk, the community’s future one-million-square-foot mixed-use lifestyle retail destination.
Envisioned to include commercial, Class-A office and retail space on two parcels located at Avenue 12 and Highway 41 just north of Fresno, Riverwalk is planned to provide visitors with a one-of-a-kind retail experience. Construction is currently underway at Riverwalk and the project’s retail tenants are expected to be announced in the near future. Riverwalk’s first stores are anticipated to open Spring 2021.
“This new district will give rise to a fun and vibrant gathering place for all ages that North Fresno can call its own—and that’s always been the most exciting aspect of Riverwalk for us,” said Riverstone’s Tim Jones.
“We’re planning Riverwalk to become a dynamic, day-to-night, indoor-outdoor destination that serves as a social epicenter for the entire region. In addition to great restaurants and some of today’s most popular retail brands, we’re designing open-air gathering spaces where people will simply love to spend time. With inventive landscaping and water elements throughout plus some playful design features, Riverwalk will feel as comfortable as one great, big outdoor living room.”
Although the retail district has been designed for the entire region, it’s a new-home amenity beyond compare for those who call Riverstone home. Riverwalk is located just across the road from the first collections of new homes at Riverstone—putting all the shopping, culinary and entertainment offerings just steps away for residents.
For those desiring to be even closer to the action—and essentially live within Riverwalk itself—an extremely limited collection of stylish, above-retail condominiums will promise a truly unique way of life within a dynamic urban setting.
Offering the Central Valley’s largest selection of new homes, Riverstone earned the distinction of being named America’s Best Master-Planned Community from the National Association of Homebuilders. Riverstone was also honored with back-to-back CVLUX Community of the Year Awards in 2019 and 2020.
Situated in the heart of the region’s path of growth, Riverstone—when complete—will total approximately 6,578 single-family, attached and multi-family homes. Amenities at Riverstone include walkable neighborhoods, parks and open space, a dog park, a sustainable water supply and The Lodge community clubhouse with resort-style swimming pools, a trainer-designed fitness center, demonstration kitchen, Gear Barn, outdoor gathering spaces with firepits, and ongoing monthly activities such as self-defense classes, book clubs, arts and crafts, specialty meal cooking classes and more. Future amenities are anticipated to include hiking and biking trails, a community farm and the on-site Stone Creek Elementary school belonging to the award-winning Golden Valley Unified School District.

Model Home tours for all homebuilders are available by appointment.
The freshwater lake eight miles from Riverstone is full of fish and ready. There’s also Millerton Lake, just 13 miles away. Happy angling!
