The old B.C. Tree Fruits building on Clement Avenue is for sale, putting North End redevelopment off schedule a bit.

The old B.C. Tree Fruits building on Clement Avenue is for sale, putting North End redevelopment off schedule a bit.

An ad lists the  5.33 acre property once discussed as the future home of the farmers market for  $7.5 million. The property has 900 feet of frontage on Clement Ave, a major arterial road in Kelowna which sees 20,000 cars go by each day.

While the Packinghouse may not be the fancy enterprise it was expected to be just yet, the good news for the property is that Starkhund Brewery is going ahead.

Ryan Smith, Community Planning Manager at City of Kelowna, says the developers of that property are moving ahead, working through the building process.

“It’s been a complicated process, because a lot of the equipment coming in is coming fin from Europe,” he said.

As for the packinghouse, Smith said there have been a lot of inquiries, and the city is hopeful  it will find a new owner soon.
