That is awesome about the bridge! I didn't even know they were doing that. Last time I was there was August 2005 and it was the first time there in a lot of years that I didn't bother crossing the bridge for some sightseeing because I didn't want to deal with the traffic. Can't wait to see the new bridge. In fact I can't wait to go to Kelowna again. I love that city and basically all of interior BC.

Unfortunately with a baby being born last July there was no BC trip and this summer we are only heading as far as Radium/Fairmont because long car trips and an infant are no fun. Next year though I plan on seeing Kelowna again.

21-storey tower planned for downtown
By Ron Seymour
Sunday, July 8, 2007

Plans for a new 21-storey residential tower in downtown Kelowna received a positive response Sunday from nearby businesses, residents and rival developers.
The building is proposed for the west side of St. Paul Street, just north of Doyle Avenue.
It would have ground floor commercial premises, two levels of parking and be topped with 18 storeys of residential suites. The development will receive initial consideration at the city‘s advisory planning commission meeting on July 17, with a later submission to the full council.
“I think the redevelopment that‘s going on around here is terrific,” said Phil Peacock of D.A. Goddard Land Surveyors, located in a St. Paul street office building. “So many downtowns are not much more than empty shells, but Kelowna‘s is seeing a lot of new construction.”
Sunil Attawane, who lives on nearby Clement Avenue, also gave the proposal a positive review after stopping to read the
notice boards posted on the site.
“I think it will give another really nice lift to downtown, add some more beauty and activity,” said Attawane, who recently moved into a single-family home in the area.
The proposed highrise is being designed by Points West Architecture out of the Lower Mainland. The notice board indicates a number of variances are being sought, including one to raise the maximum allowable height from 44 to 66 metres, and one to reduce the parking requirement to 169 stalls from 223.
It‘s kitty-corner to where the 15-storey,
57-suite Madison residential tower will be built, at the corner of Doyle and Ellis.
“This new building just underscores the fact that the Okanagan lifestyle means that a lot of people will be moving here in the years to come,” said Mel Kotler, one of the partners in the Madison building, the sales for which will begin in late August.
“This is all part of the continued evolution of downtown Kelowna,” added Dane MacKinnon, a partner in the 11-storey, nearly completed project The Lofts Downtown
on Ellis, where people will begin moving
into the 46 residential units within two weeks.
“Getting more people living down here adds to the business and to the culture of the city.”

Great rendering!

My parents were thinking of buying in to Madison, but they didn't think the price justified moving out of their half acre lot up in Crawford Estates.

Kelowna is looking good. It's so cool that so many B.C. cities are growing so quickly. I haven't been to Kelowna now since 99 but I want to go soon. It will be cool to see the changes from the last time I was there. I will wait till the fall to go. Too hot now!

^ Great maybe you could post some pics of the Kelowna construction. What ever happened to your up island photos you promised about a year and a half ago?

That roof is reminiscent of The Melville in Vancouver, silvery as opposed to copper. I like it.

I always post my photos! I never had those ones so you'll have to ask the other guy for them

However, I am going to be going up island again before fall and take some of my own photographs. At what point I'll post them up on here for ya!


I love that building, I'm jealous!
