This is the first time I have seen this thread. Really cool, B.C. is taking off all over.

The only city here in B.C. that I haven't heard much on in terms of new construction is Pr. George???? any info on it?

Anyways cool for Kelowna!!!! ---BOB---

Here's the Landmark Centre website.
http://www.alstober.com/

This is the hi-tech area in central Kelowna across from the Parkinson Rec Centre, and not too far from the Apple Bowl.


And, Building V is going ahead really fast. I believe they're already on the 7th or 8th floor of 10-12.

I like the new business district that is popping up there. I bought a condo by the Kelowna Golf and Country Club, so this development really helps my resale value. Too bad the architecture is boring as shit.

Update:

Boom boom boom!!!!

Here's what they're building not 200m away from my house. Damn I cannot wait for the construction to begin.






There architecture isn't all that original, but it looks good.

I don't know if it's approved or what. But, I'm %100 positive it will get approved if it already isn't.

I'll get more info for you at the meeting.

I'm so glad they chose these colours instead of some of the others on the model. Ewww, is all I can say if it had been blue.

Wow.

Seems like there's a whole slew of condos in Kelowna with the arched roofs. Is that a design requirement or something?

Wow! I am really suprised to see those towers going in Westbank. Thats awsome though...the area must really be densifying. The whole Kelowna area is beautiful, its no wonder there is so much growth.

No, not really. This is the home for suburban sprawl. But, it's getting a bit better.

And, Koz, what do you think?
Of course it's a requirement.

Kelowna sure looks Kewler than it was when I lived there (1994-1995). Nice to see the evolution of the cityscape. When i was there, the only buildings were the Coast hotel, the dolphins condo tower (1 tower), and the recently completed Grand Okanagan hotel.

I don't go to Gyro that much. Way too many people there.

And plus, those "babes" would most likely be underage. Cause it's mostly the under 18 crowd that hangs out there.


And, yes page 2.

There are so many people I'd like to thank for making this possible. Most of all mayor Walter Grey, may you have a good retirement.

Let's just hope Lawson's Landing still gets built.

I've got a little update.

The Cannary Lane Lofts are now complete.
Looks gorgeous. The Lofts Downtown pre-load is done, the crane's up now.

And, the Home Depot they're building near my house; they've started clearing the land.

Another little update.

Details are sketchy, but it's good news for the Westside.

- The Natives might build a casino on the other side of the bridge by Casa Loma. It's supposed to have a hotel with it, which could be 9 floors.

-The former Lakeview Elementary School might be demolished to build condos and apartments. Two different designs: 1. 4 storeys max, but no room for anything else, or 2. 12 & 15 storey towers with room for amenties.



Oh, and just read this on Chbc.com: http://chbc.com/index.php?name=News&...icle&sid=12193

Buildings up to 14 stories will be allowed in Rutland.

This day gets better and better.

Is there a lot of Nimbys in Kelowna? I thought for some reason I read an article last year where the City was trying to push for taller buildings? Is this not true.

I know in Nanaimo they have at least for new project proposals where each one of them would be taller than any building you would find in Victoria.

The city "was" trying to push for taller buildings. The new mayor "isn't" anymore.
And, yeah there are quite a few nimbys. Not as much as Victoria, but a lot.

Too Bad! We have a few more proposals coming in the next two months for heights between 18 - 20 stories. We will have to wait to see what transpires. I am crossing my fingers on these. We have a huge group on this site from Victoria. There is almost 30 of us on here. So we are as a group sending letters to council and attending public hearings for these proposals creating a pro voice that this city has been lacking. Maybe you could try and get a group together over there? Well good luck , BOB.

I hope Kelowna grows upwards!!

There is a group, it's called Move Kelowna Forward, and we've gotten some media too.
