Update:


The Lofts Downtown is under construction.


Landmark Technology Centre 3 is now also under construction.
It is a hi-rise, and will be tied for the tallest office building in Kelowna at 12 stories.

I tottally saw that sucker u/c on my way down to Summerland. They are rather boring buildings, and having 3 of them doesnt help. At least some more height is being added though, albeit a bit of a ways from downtown.

I like em. That whole place I hear is going to be hi-tech. They might even move the VW dealership.

Also, when are your pics going to be ready. I really love that town.

That would be cool if it becomes a sort of hi-tech hood in Kelowna.

Summerland? Done and done, like a week ago! Haha i hid them in my last Vernon thread, at the bottem. Feel free to post, trust me, I don't mind bumps at all:

The project at McKinley Landing was approved today.

It will have an 18 hole golf course, an 800 room hotel ( 17 stories), marina and convention center. This will all be part of a village they are building from scratch.

I don't have any renderings of the project.

Anyone?

800 rooms? That 17 story building must be one heck of a fatscraper. Just kidding. I presume those rooms are spread out over a resort complex of some sort?

I remember seeing some somewhere. I just can't remember where.

I think it's a little too far north of kelowna though.



In other news they are planning on building a huge hi-density neighborhood near my house in Westbank. It will have a few hi-rise condos/apartments.

It's inbetween Majors Rd. and Carrington Rd.

There will be a meeting on it on Tuesday the 30th, at the Westbank Community Hall from 7-9pm.

Does anyone have a map of Kelowna? I wonder how far it is from Vancouver?

Usually a four hour drive, about 300km east.

Wisla, so what's up with that high-density project coming to your neck of the woods?

It's probably a go. Too much money for the local government.

But, that's just fine.

Giallo, you are going to be really happy:

Centuria Ground Breaking

I don't know how I missed this.

I'm gonna have to get my ass into Kelowna with my new camera and take some pics. I hope they've started construction by now.

Edit: Looking through those pics I saw Sharron Simpson. That bitch hates development, so why was she there?

Some of you may be familiar with a luxurious condo development that has been in the construction stage for the past year called Playa Del Sol. Units are selling very fast. It looks like a solid investment opportunity with the booming economy in Kelowna. A high-end restaurant called Murrieta's (they just opened a location on Whyte Ave here in Edmonton and it looks fantastic) will be built with the resort. Phase 1 will be done in the spring. It is located a 9-iron away from the lake on the corner of Cook and Lakeshore. Here's the site: http://www.playadelsolkelowna.com/

If anyone has any pics they could post that would be great.

I think that project looks amazing. I haven't been to the Mission for a few months now, so I can't tell you what it looks like.

But, the project reminds me of the resorts in Spain that many a British tourists stay at. Also one of the best parts about it as well, is that it has stores or restaurants being built in it.

I'm very happy about Centuria, Wisla. More like ecstatic. All the cheap units have been sold though. The cheapest is like $250,000.

Wow, lots of development going on. I was only in Kewlona for an hour or two before hitchhiking down to Penticton. I suspect it will look very different the next time I see it.

From Castanet.net

Shepherd Unveils Plans For Old KSS Site
Mayoral candidate Sharon Shepherd shared her vision of using the former KSS site as a "showcase of sustainability" which could bring people from all over the world to see a municipal model of long-term planning and innovation.

Shepherd commits to starting her mayoral term by appointing a Community Coalition that would report back within the first quarter on site conditions and/or concerns. The committee will be made up of members of the city-planning department, members from Okanagan College and UBC-O, social agencies, the development and business communities, and residents.

She views the site as a multi use community, incorporating park space, mixed-use housing including affordable, subsidized, college/university units and market housing with adaptable and accessible designs and roof-top gardens. She has visions of a basketball training facility (historical use from KSS), a daycare located near a senior center, community gardens, a community and family center, mixed with some commercial or service provider component such as a shoe repair, hairdressing salon, medical or dental office, small grocery store and/or a community policing office. The entire site could be built utilizing world-renowned sustainable principles such as solar and geothermal energy. Her excitement is evident as Shepherd declares, "Imagine all of this in a site so close to the heart of downtown – close to the lake, entertainment in our Cultural District and the broad range of wonderful downtown shops. What better way to revitalize downtown than to have more close and accessible options for them to live, work, and play downtown?"

When asked about a timeline for building, Shepherd acknowledges that a full report on the site is required to determine any environmental or other concerns, but given the size of the property feels it can be buildt in stages with some construction able to begin as early as 2006.



I kind of like the idea, but it isn't specific enough. Also what kind of commercial is shoe repair, and hair salon. She needs better examples.
