The multifaceted community will reshape Kelowna’s skyline, and aims to spark growth and foster a sense of connection and community among its residents and commercial tenants.
Okanagan community builder Mission Group has teamed with Nicola Wealth Real Estate to develop the final phases of a master-planned urban village that will help transform downtown Kelowna, British Columbia.
The multifaceted community will reshape Kelowna’s skyline, and aims to spark growth and foster a sense of connection and community among its residents and commercial tenants, making it a new downtown hub for living, shopping, and socialising.
The final phases of the urban village called Bernard Block will be comprised of a Class A office tower (The Block), and a 34-storey residential condominium tower (Bertram) featuring a mix of unit types and amenities like a rooftop pool overlooking Okanagan Lake.
The Block office tower completes the urban village and will play a major role in establishing downtown Kelowna as the Okanagan’s commercial centre, according to Mission Group.
“Bernard Block will add beautiful, iconic buildings and homes to the neighbourhood, while driving foot traffic to the main floor shops and services along Bernard Avenue”
The 16-storey building offers approximately 100,000 sq ft of office space for lease atop four levels of parking plus an additional 16,000 sq ft of street-level dining and retail.
“This vote of confidence by Nicola Wealth Real Estate demonstrates our shared optimism and confidence in Kelowna, one of Canada’s fastest growing cities,” said Jon Friesen, CEO of Mission Group.
“Bernard Block will add beautiful, iconic buildings and homes to the neighbourhood, while driving foot traffic to the main floor shops and services along Bernard Avenue.” The Block brings one-of-a-kind office space with surrounding urban amenities, while also providing unrivalled views of Okanagan Lake from every office floor.”
In addition to the office space for lease, The Block features street-level dining and retail space, smart technology facilities, and secure bike storage.
“We are excited to be playing a major role in the development of Bernard Block as an investment partner,” said Mark Hannah, managing director of Nicola Wealth Real Estate.
“Our team has an existing presence in Kelowna, and we recognise that the beautiful new homes and job spaces at this urban village are essential to Kelowna’s continued growth.”
