Discover a neighborhood uniquely designed to complement the natural beauty of its native environment. A community where pavement is significantly reduced creating essential green space, fostering social interaction. Welcome to The Ridge - the first community of its kind in Nanaimo that puts sustainability and livability at the forefront.
The Ridge introduces functional ‘traffic-calmed streets’ aimed at improving pedestrian safety and minimizing hard surfaces, as a result, storm water run-off is reduced, nurturing important wetlands on site. These innovative ‘sustainable streets’ allow rainwater to infiltrate the ground and be filtered by natural vegetation. Impervious road surfaces are minimized (eliminating several acres of asphalt), resulting in cleaner water and a more natural run-off that mimics the areas original conditions.
Hammond Bay is located in North Nanaimo (between Dover Bay and Departure Bay). Hammond Bay Road is the main route along the stretch of hillside overlooking the ocean; driving along you will find a great deal of Nanaimo’s luxury homes, mostly single family with some town houses and patio homes as well as a few condo developments. Homes in this area are built to have stunning ocean views and beautiful green space and are spaced out nicely due to the hilly terrain. A lot of properties in the neighbourhood overlook Stephenson Point; some people group Hammond Bay with the North end; however, these are two separate and distinct neighbourhoods. Hammond Bay Road is the main route that connects the two neighborhoods and one of the reasons for this misconception. Hammond Bay is a bit quieter than the North end, but you are still just minutes away from schools and major shopping centers.
