Kelowna first Green Street welcomes visitors this Saturday

Kelowna’s first Green Street will welcome visitors this Saturday and Sunday from noon to 5 pm. Both the architect and developer behind Parkside at Clifton Road will be on site for a two-day open house.

“The city’s first green street is nearing completion; we have the paving complete, services in and drought tolerant plantings are now underway,” says developer A. J. Hazzi. “It’s exciting to see not only the new homes construction underway, but with some of the recent rains, how the roadway responds with its promise of a better water management.”

“The city’s first green street is nearing completion; we have the paving complete, services in and drought tolerant plantings are now underway,” says developer A. J. Hazzi. “It’s exciting to see not only the new homes construction underway, but with some of the recent rains, how the roadway responds with its promise of a better water management.”

Kelowna City Council gave approval bylaw variances and endorsed the Green Street in June this year.

The eco-friendly 100 metre-long cul-de-sac has been named Modern Place, with access directly off Clifton Road. Visitors will get an up-close look at the sustainable water management which will feed rain water back to the nearby Blair Pond. The green street will become an integral part of the natural ecosystem, contributing to its long-term sustainability of the parkland.

Renovation is also under way on the exiting home at the end of Parkside at Clifton Road on lot 7.

“We wanted to create a smaller footprint with this development,” says Hazzi. “Renovating the existing home rather than tearing it down just made sense. The home’s new design will echo the contemporary architecture of the new community, which build on the stunning work of architectural pioneer Frank Lloyd Wright. Architecture begins with the nature of the site, so you’ll see open floor plans and exposed beams, larger windows and skylights that connected the inside of the home to the outside.”

The renovated home is one of 13 single-family homes to incorporate natural building materials such as wood and stone, and floor plans that open the interior to views of the beautiful natural landscape and park. Lots begin at $169,000 and custom homes from $529,000.

Landscape guidelines include drought tolerant planting and an island community garden in the centre of the cul-de-sac. The Green Street also links to a walkway, connecting Parkside Parkside at Clifton Road to Blair Pond Park, Knox Mountain Park East and hiking and biking trails.

This is the first development for Hazzi, owner of Vantage West Realty who was recently named young entrepreneur of the year at the Kelowna Chamber of Commerce business excellence awards.
