You’ve decided to open a new business. The business plan is done and you’re ready to choose a location. But where should you go, where will you find a commercial space that fits your needs?

Meet The River Station District.

The River Station District serves as a hub for an exciting, urban centre never seen before in downtown Fort McMurray. Located along the Clearwater River, the River Station has a rich history and historical significance as it’s where the railway met the barges that came here in 1942.

Near the highly sought-after Waters Edge upscale condos built by LIAM, this growing waterfront community is the heartbeat of downtown. It’s an opportunity to surround your business with other attractive shops and restaurants including Cedar’s Bakery, Eat Clean, Avenue Eatery & Cafe, and Stratosphere Sports. Also opening in fall 2021 will be a bar with golf simulators, a pilates studio, and a supplement store.


There are over 20 bays at The River Station District offering a variety of commercial needs, including retail, restaurant, fitness, furnished office space, and multiple warehouses ranging from 1200 sq/ft to 6500 sq/ft.

As of August 2021, LIAM has only FOUR bays left for lease. The spaces are a great size for various opportunities including cosmetics, restaurants, and a barbershop. Whatever your next business venture is, LIAM can create a space to fit your needs!


The River Station District boasts over 20 different businesses some of which are at the base of the Ramada Hotel and Radium Scout, a 40-suite condo building. A short walk from River Station is Keyano College with thousands of students and staff on campus daily. All this contributes to major foot and vehicle traffic, giving your business even more exposure.

Being located downtown also means your business will have access to the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo’s Downtown Revitalization Incentive Program. These grants can save you thousands of dollars off upgrading and improving your operation.


At LIAM our customers come first. We take on your new business venture as if it was our own. We assist entrepreneurs with leaseholder improvements and low payments to start. If you need help applying for grants, our staff will be happy to assist you. And once you’re up and running, we will still be there to ensure everything continues to run smoothly.

Leasing with LIAM also gives you access to our Downtown Loyalty Program. It offers residential tenants living at Waters Edge, Hangingstone, and Radium with a current lease exclusive insider discounts at participating LIAM commercial businesses in downtown Fort McMurray.

At LIAM, we strive to help make your business as successful as possible. We feel the loyalty program will do just that by driving traffic through your doors, create new leads, and potentially repeat customers.

We stand by our reputation for quality and value with an uncompromising commitment to service. All our leaders have a support network of superintendents, controllers, interior designers, suppliers, and consultants to ensure we get the job done and done right!
