Granite gets green light as City Council approves new panoramic view residences on Kelowna’s waterfront

New phase at McKinley Beach offers waterfront condos from $385K

Acorn Communities has got a green light from Kelowna Council on the city’s latest development, Granite at McKinley Beach, paving the way for construction of panoramic lakeview townhomes and condominiums above the waterfront on Okanagan Lake.
The Granite is part of the one-of-a-kind waterfront community at McKinley Beach, said Greg Bird, who is developing the multi-family site. The 2.1-hectare evaluated parcel stretches 60 feet above a kilometre of undisturbed beach within the Kelowna city limits and will feature both condominiums and townhomes.

“We’re focused on building communities where people love to live and never want to leave,” says Bird. “With the beach, marina and hiking trails through the integrated natural landscape, the community feels like a world unto itself.”

The homes at Granite at McKinley offer breathtaking views of Okanagan Lake with a panoramic 180-degree view of the water. The building finishes and colors draw from the natural setting with gracious outdoor living space and large rooftop terraces and common area.

The first building will feature 64 units in a two-building complex. These lakeview homes range in size from 1,100 to 2,000 sq. ft. and are offered for $370,000 to one million.

Sales are already underway for the 18 townhomes. The nine, side-by-side homes each offer two-level balconies to enjoy the view from the waterside, and easy drive-in access from the street side. Floor plans range from 2,000 to 3,000 sq. ft. and are priced from $730,000 to $795,000.

“The unique topography of McKinley Mountain allows us to tuck theses townhomes right into the hillside, offering unique floor plans, outstanding views of Okanagan Lake and quick access to the beach below,” says Bird. “This is the Okanagan living we’ve been looking for and I‘ve already made plans to make my own home at the Granite. I’m excited to help my future neighbours build their Okanagan dream lifestyle too.”

Located just north of Knox Mountain Park in Kelowna, the waterfront community strikes the balance between easy access to city amenities and a serene location that feels hidden away. The Granite plans to offer residents boat and watersports rentals from its five dedicated slips in the 96-slip marina. A beachfront clubhouse is under development and a 16-hectare vineyard offering wine tastings is slated for the development’s north hillside.

Occupancy is for the Granite at McKinley Beach is expected in late 2017.  To register, visit Acorn Communities.
