6 Kelowna Condo Projects to Check Out in 2017
Whether you’re looking to downsize and retire in Kelowna, buy your first home, or invest in BC’s booming housing market, there is a condo project for you. There are a number of condominium projects in various stages of development and completion, including several that are in the early planning stages with completion scheduled for 2018 and 2019. But if you’re looking to get into your new Kelowna condo sooner rather than later, these are just some of the projects you’ll want to check out with your Walker Real Estate Realtor.
The Stockwell Downtown
Spacious floorplans, thoughtful interior designs and an amazing location make The Stockwell Downtown one of the top condo developments in recent years. Located at the corner of Stockwell Avenue and Richter Street, this 32-unit building is adjacent to all of the action without being in the thick of the summer hustle and bustle.
Every unit comes with a parking stall and 40% of the stalls are electric vehicle ready - just install your charging station! With a focus on sustainability, The Stockwell also boasts a community garden so that you can get to know your neighbours while you grow your own fresh veggies. There are even units with more than 600 sq ft. of outdoor living space.
Possibly the most buzzed about condo development of 2016, Central Green is set to carry on that momentum as they release new phases of their incredible development. Located on the corner of Richter Street and Harvey Avenue, Central Green offers home-owners easy access to downtown Kelowna’s restaurants, shopping, grocery stores, and beaches.
The units are heritage-inspired modern lofts and are part of a larger redevelopment plan that will see Central Green become its own community, complete with commercial and retail services and a large, 5-acre park. If you need some extra space, Central Green may be the fit for you with 2-bedroom loft units and 3-bedroom junior suites available.
1151 Sunset Drive
If you’re looking for a condo that’s a little more upscale in downtown Kelowna, you may want to look at 1151 Sunset Drive. Located near the Waterscapes and Skye Tower developments, this condo project is just steps away from Prospera Place, Waterfront Park, and a short walk to Knox Park too. As a concrete tower, you can also snag yourself a pretty spectacular view if you select a unit on a higher floor.
Floorplans at 1151 Sunset Drive range from about 650 sq ft. to more than 2,000 sq ft, so there’s truly something for everyone. The building amenities also include a large multi-purpose room with kitchen for entertaining, a meeting room, fitness room, outdoor kitchen and plunge pool.
Granite at McKinley Beach
If you want a lakeview home with the freedom of a condo, Granite at McKinley Beach has you covered. This 5.2-acre site will be home to 18 townhomes and 100 apartment-style condo units and boast breathtaking, panoramic views of Okanagan Lake.
McKinley Beach is one of the hottest new planned communities in Kelowna with a kilometre of untouched beachfront. In the future, residents can look forward to a clubhouse and a 92-slip marina. Best of all, this community is located within Kelowna city limits and is a scenic drive to downtown Kelowna and a quick trip to Kelowna International Airport, making it ideal for homeowners who like to travel.
Located in Kelowna’s trendiest neighbourhood, South Pandosy, SOPA Square is now more than 90% sold, but there are still some great condos available. Thanks to its great location, this condo development is right in the heart of it all with independent boutiques, grocery stores, coffee shops and restaurants right outside your front door. And Okanagan Lake is just a 5-minute walk down the street!
Most of the apartment-style condos in SOPA Square are taken but if you’re looking for an extra-spacious 3-bedroom unit or a well-designed townhouse, you may just find what you’re looking for here.
Siena at Sarsons
Looking for a condo project that feels more like a private holiday resort? Siena at Sarsons offers 65 units in the heart of Kelowna’s Lower Mission neighbourhood. The spa-like amenities include an owner’s lounge with vaulted ceiling and fireplace, a year-round swimming pool and hot tub, an outdoor recreation space and fully-equipped gym. But the real star of Sarsons is the award-winning landscaping which would be perfectly at home in a 5-star resort, complete with impressive water feature.
Choose from 1, 2 and 3-bedroom floorplans as well as two colour schemes. With prices starting from the mid-$300,000s you will find it easy to call Siena at Sarsons ‘home’.
