Riverview Home has been undergoing a major multi-phase contraction project since January, 2011.  Renovations and expansion of the south wing were completed in November 2012 while completion of the centre core occurred in December 2014.  
in 2013 the Department of Community Services issued a Roadmap to guide its services for persons with disabilities over the next ten years.  As a result of this change in philosophy, a decision was made not to complete phase 3 of the renovation project and the north wing of the building is now slated for demolition.
