“Delta Rise is a major investment in our economy and I am extremely pleased to be a part of this event,” said Mayor Lois E. Jackson. “This project speaks volumes about the type of development that can emerge through innovative policy and determination.”

As a Delta-based developer, Maple Leaf Homes echoed the positive sentiment on the future of Delta and showcased Delta Rise as a symbol of the revitalization of the community.

With a host of amenities and transit within footsteps, we envision North Delta as being a hub and ideal spot to live, that people will gravitate to.”
