Riverwalk: A California Original

December 17, 2021

Those who are familiar with the master-planned community of Riverstone understand that its developers like to think big. And “big” happens to be the perfect word to describe the community’s upcoming Riverwalk lifestyle retail destination. Anticipated to span 50 acres and more than one million square feet of commercial, Class-A office and retail space, the future development is anticipated to offer a live-work-shop-play dynamic unique to the North Fresno area.

Located directly across the street from Riverstone’s collection of homes, Riverwalk is planned to include condominiums, offices, restaurants, retail stores and a movie theater. Image is an artist’s rendition.

Now open at Riverwalk is the first Madera County location of Dutch Bros. Coffee, a much-loved brand with Oregon roots that serves specialty coffee drinks, smoothies, freezes, teas and more.

As construction continues at Riverwalk, several additional tenants are scheduled to open this winter and into the new year including Papi’s Mex Grill, Fresh Fill and Judy’s Donuts. Also coming soon is Blast & Brew, an American eatery and tap house—with its famous sister company, Me-n-Ed’s, located right next door to offer delivery and take-out of their award-winning, brick-oven-baked pizza.

Between Riverwalk’s new office buildings to the south and its retail offerings on the north, an area similar to San Jose’s Santana Row is envisioned featuring a river-like water element running through the heart of the project—and flanked by retailer kiosks, unique design elements and shaded spaces to sit and relax.

“We always envisioned Riverwalk as an outdoor-centric destination open to plenty of sunshine and fresh air,” said Riverstone’s Tim Jones. “By creating this kind of big and comfortable outdoor living room where people simply love to hang out, we’re hopeful that Riverwalk can become a new and vibrant social epicenter of the region.”

Another tenant on the way is Riley’s Brewing Company, which is planned to be located near the already-constructed portion of Riverwalk on the southwest corner of Business 41 and Root Creek Parkway. A unique, two-story design concept is envisioned for the new restaurant and brewing facility, which will be a beautiful new showcase for Riley’s well-loved offering of truly distinctive food, brews, spirits and specialty beverages.

A future community farm and market is anticipated to be situated right next door. The planned venue is envisioned as a convenient spot for Riverstone residents to pick up fresh fruits and vegetables for wholesome, farm-to-table meal preparations at home.

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, Stone Creek Elementary school belonging to the award-winning Golden Valley Unified School District, 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 Riverstone amenities are anticipated to include hiking and biking trails, a community farm and much more.
