Central Green brings more affordable housing, downtown Kelowna
Davara Enterprises will build and operate two Karis Support Society homes on the Central Green site across located in front of the old Kelowna Secondary School.
On Monday, Kelowna city council approved 15-year housing agreements to move the homes for women struggling with addictions issues onto the site.
The society already operates eight homes, including spaces for single women and spaces for those with children.
The new homes, located at 550 Rowcliffe and 555 Buckland will help satisfy the 15 per cent affordable housing demand for the site, as stipulated by a lengthy planning process that included considerable input from the surrounding community.
The agreement makes room for 30 housing units ranging from studios to three-bedroom homes.
