A community upholding the principles of sustainability, diversity and a healthy lifestyle
Cambrian Rise is a new planned community that incorporates inclusive living spaces and inspiring working environments, anchoring the north end of Burlington's waterfront campus. The first comprehensive development of its kind in Vermont, Cambrian Rise is where sustainable living, community engagement, and business innovation come together as a beacon of possibility for Burlington and beyond.
The design of buildings and land improvements preserve natural resources and native vegetation. At Cambrian Rise, neighbors can take advantage of diverse housing opportunities and live-work environments. Fitness facilities, pedestrian friendly streets, biking, hiking, and swimming promote a healthy lifestyle.
Named for the History of the Land
The Cambrian Rise name is shared with a geological feature running along the East side of Lake Champlain. The Cambrian Thrust consists of lower rock from the Cambrian period that has been forced up through new rock. During the Cambrian period, simple cell organisms evolved into complex life forms. This moment of evolution is also known as the Cambrian Explosion, and the Cambrian Rise neighborhood reflects this history of flourishing diversity.
