i was in kelowna about 2 years ago when they were just starting to build that 17 story condo.
i remember seeing the massive crane from the orchard park shopping center and then getting closer and seeing the half done condo, i had no idea it was supposed to be 17 stories

Here's a few buildings I know about. Keep in mind that these are only the higher end projects. I just don't have enough information on the lower end projects. Many of these lower end projects are being built in Rutland, which is great. It's great to see Rutland being built up. Anyways, here's what I've found of the higher end projects in Kelowna.


Buildings Under Construction

The Lofts Downtown (11 storeys):



Centuria Ubran Village (16 storeys):




Buildings Proposed

The Westin Hotel (20 storeys):



Madison Residential Tower (15 storeys):
(No Photo)


2040 Springfield Rd (11 storeys)(Not Downtown):
(No Photo)

maybe this weekend i'll take a drive around town and get some pictures for you guys, I work on a lot of the new projects as well so i'll try to snap some pics around the sites.

Its good to see Rutland will be expanding as they say, with the new zoning, allowing up to 14 stories i believe, Rutland will finally get the face lift it needs considering nothings changed since 1970. There is also a proposed 7 story low rise on the corner of hwy 33 and rutland road, half res half offices.

Well, I live on the westside but I'm only about 10 minutes from downtown if the traffic isn't bad so I'll try to go down there and take some pictures.

Not sure about the UBC-O, but Asher place has all its floors framed and they are working on the roof. So far it looks awesome and the detail and design of the roof is going to make it different and unique as all the other condo projects in Rutland so far look the same.
