Recently the public was given a first look at the

design plans for the Collett Manor residential/commerical development in Kelowna.

The mixed use project will be built across from the Kelowna General Hospital at 2169 Pandosy St.

The development has received city council’s endorsement, and the open house on Monday was to let local residents learn about the passion and research put in by developer Alan Marrington.

“We’ve spent years putting together the pieces for this project, both literally and figuratively,”said Marrington, owner of Pandosy Street Developments Ltd.

“We wanted the public to be able to see and experience some of the innovative technologies and details that are going into this building.

“The work that is being put into it is nothing short of extraordinary and there are so many details that people may not have even heard of before.”

As part of its mixed-use designation, the project will include a unique blend of housing and hospitality options.

The four-storey building will offer 41 residential units that are a blend of short-stay, long-stay and permanent residences, offering support and medical services, including treatment at KGH.

Zoned HD2 (Hospital District 2), the building will also offer commercial/office space for medical offices,

treatment centres and complimentary services like a cafe or minimarket.

Beyond the functionality of the Feng Shui-designed living spaces, the project also boasts an array of unique and innovative products and technologies:

• American Clay walls for naturally beautiful interiors

• Oversized doors and hallway

• Touchless faucets

• August remote keyless entry

• Nest smoke/CO2 detector and thermostat

• Warmboard in-floor radiant heating

• UVC lights

• Nanosilver flooring to deactivate harmful bacteria

• Flexible wall systems.

These features and amenities within Collett Manor will also make the building a candidate for WELL Certification, a system for measuring, certifying and monitoring a building’s impact on health and wellness.

While relatively new within the construction landscape, WELL is third-party-certified by Green Business Certification Inc., the same organization that administers the LEED program.

Marrington said essentially, WELL is to health what LEED is to the environment.

“Through our research into products and procedures that would help those going through the medical system, we discovered WELL,” Marrington said.

“On completion, we will work towards becoming the first mixed-use development in the country to have achieved WELL Certification, putting this project and Kelowna on the map.”
