The doors opens on the Central Green discovery centre and display home by an award-winning Okanagan builder Mission Group Homes, for an advance preview this Saturday at noon. These heritage-inspired modern homes will transform the corner of Richter Street and Harvey Avenue into the most sustainable community in Kelowna.
The master-planned community, on approximately 13 acres in downtown Kelowna, will feature three condominium buildings leading to the park’s edge on Rowcliffe Avenue. Central Green One, the first four-storey building comes to the market on March 19, with the launch of 83 homes: one, two, junior two and junior three bedroom homes from the low $200,000s and two-storey loft homes from the mid $300,000s.
“We’re excited to be part of Central Green and the inspired green living it embodies,” says Randy Shier, president of Mission Group Homes. “You’re so close to downtown and every urban convenience you could ever want, and the interest in these green homes has been overwhelming."
A waiting list began last September with growing anticipation for this advance preview. Real Estate agent Heather Blaeser says interest is split roughly 50-50 between first-time buyers and those looking for a smaller footprint, and the appeal of urban living in Kelowna’s downtown core.
The heritage-inspired condominiums are rooted in tradition and feature accents of red brick architecture, including detailed cornice ledges around the roofline and wrought-iron inspired fencing. The architecture pays homage to both the original brick Kelowna Secondary School that was established over 75 years ago on the site and the adjacent century-old Central School.
The pedestrian and cyclist-friendly community is served by rapid bus transit and connected to the city’s existing cycling network. The future five-acre community park includes a perimeter walking/running circuit and a field area for informal games of soccer or football. The west entrance will feature a children’s playground and on the east side will be a stage for performing arts adjacent to Central Green One. Community gardens as well as a fenced off-leash dog park are featured along the park’s south edge along Rowcliffe Avenue.
Occupancy for Central Green One is slated for winter of 2017/18. Those interested in living at Central Green are welcome to attend an advance preview at noon March 12 and explore the display home located at 1800 Richter Street.
