The complex’s signature tower will “incorporate the important Kelowna values of live, work, play… complimenting the neighbourhood with new jobs and services,” the Al Strober Construction said.

The district is already one of the Okanagan’s key employment communities, hosting more than 3,500 people working across a variety of industry ranging from technology to retail, and it continues to grow. In 2018, 23 new businesses joined Landmark District.

The demand for office and retail space is expected to grow as Kelowna’s population, which is anticipated to increase by 50,000 over the next 20 years.

Completion of the project is anticipated for 2020.
