Conner Homes opens RIVA townhomes in Issaquah

A ribbon cutting ceremony was held Sept. 24, grand opening event will take place on Sept. 28.

Conner Homes’ new 36-townhome community, RIVA, soon will open near downtown Issaquah at 1998 Newport Way NW.

The grand opening of RIVA will take place at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 28. Visitors can tour the facilities and a decorated model home, and refreshments will be served.

The Issaquah Chamber of Commerce held a ribbon cutting at the neighborhood on Sept. 24 with chamber members, other dignitaries and members of the Conner Homes team, including owner Charlie Conner and president Michael Lorenz.

About 20 people were present and viewed the model unit and enjoyed light refreshments.

“Thank you very much for not just building beautiful homes, but for improving our quality of life,” said chamber CEO Kathy McCorry.

Queen of Issaquah Katie Bosseler gave an “ohfishal” welcoming proclamation.

The RIVA neighborhood is adjacent to a multi-modal trail and within walking distance of transit, retail, dining and downtown Issaquah. It is also near Lake Sammamish State Park, Issaquah Salmon Hatchery, Cougar Mountain Zoo and the Cougar Mountain trailhead.

“We are very excited to open RIVA, the result of close collaboration with the city of Issaquah,” Lorenz said in a press release. “This is a unique new home opportunity with a superb Issaquah location bordered by over six acres of open space and features parks, open space, scenic overlooks, walkways and trail connections.”

Conner Homes and the city have been working together on this project since 2015.
