VANCOUVER, WA (KPTV) -

The new Vancouver waterfront development is starting to take shape as the city held a groundbreaking ceremony for the pier.

On Monday, the city's contractor began construction work for the pier, which will be suspended 90 feet over the river from cables. There will be a surrounding park that is more than seven acres in size.

The Vancouver waterfront was chosen as the spot for the $1.3 billion residential and commercial development site.

"It's really exciting to be here for the groundbreaking and to see something that I've observed for years transform like it's going to," said Attila Szabo, President of Wildfin Northwest.

Pier construction is set to wrap up by the end of 2017.
