A new office tower is being proposed for the Landmark development in Kelowna.

Al Stober Construction has announced plans for a new 23-storey office tower at what is now known as the its Landmark District across Harvey Avenue from the Parkinson Recreation Centre.

Landmark 7 will be the complex’s signature tower, say the company.

“The new tower will incorporate the important Kelowna values of live, work, play” into the vision of the Landmark District, complimenting the neighbourhood with new jobs and services, as part of a conscientious urban plan,” said Stober Construction in its announcement Thursday.

The project, once complete, will also focus on drawing businesses that would typically invest in the Lower Mainland, said Stober. And it predicted that will bring well-paying business and technology jobs to the city.

Once complete more than 5,000 people are expected to work in the Landmark District.

“A workforce of this size lends well to making efficient transit solutions a viable possibility,” said Stober.

Designed by Stoke Tonne of Kelowna-based Meiklejohn Architects Inc., Landmark 7 will be an ultra-modern complement to the complex and The new addition is inspired by the existing predecessor, Landmark 6 tower.

The new tower will include 224,000-square-feet of commercial office and retail space, with retail stores and restaurants at street level to enhance the pedestrian experience of the new Landmark District Market which will open in the spring.

A new public outdoor plaza that will connect the project from Dickson Avenue to the Landmark District Market through to the pedestrian overpass to the Parkinson Recreation Centre on the other side of Harvey Avenue will be built as part of the project , as well as a state-of-the-art fitness centre on the second floor and an 11,000-square-foot fifth-floor events centre with seating for 350 people as well an outdoor entertainment deck and community gardens.

The building will also have electric car charging stations, bike lockers and a rideshare program.

“In order to meet the demand of projected growth of our business community and bring new jobs to Kelowna we are under a lot of pressure to get this project completed,” said Bob Dagenais, project development manager for Al Stober Construction Ltd.

Completion of the project is anticipated for the 2022.
