Central Green Development
Central Green is located on the old Kelowna Secondary School location on Harvey Avenue and Richter Street in Kelowna. The original property was over 13 acres and featured Kelowna’s Senior Secondary School until it move to its new location beside Okanagan College on Raymer Ave in 2002.
The Central Green site was originally slated for a large development featuring three high-rise towers up to 18 stories on Harvey with a 5 acre park on Rowcliffe Ave. The condominiums and townhouses in the towers would be complimented with low-rise developments in and around the park. This development unfortunately never made it to the construction stage as the market crashed in 2008 with the recession.
Years later and two local developers have taken over the bulk of the residential project. Lead by Al Stober Construction and Mission Group Homes the new Central Green has fallen back to a more conservative urban building formula. The new community plan now features low rise townhomes, condominiums and townhouses built to new LEED standards. The Leadership Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) combines green building practices with urban density and development principles.
This approach for a planned community has become a big success as people value a more liveable neighbourhood. It is a well know with urban planners that city housing developments that follow height restriction of four stories make for much more liveable communities. With the opportunity to develop Kelowna townhomes at this central location the new master planned community is selling well.
Some key development features are:
- 15 per cent of the site will be dedicated to affordable housing
- Future pedestrian overpass to the downtown core
- 5 acre Rowcliffe Park with community garden, Parks Alive stage and playgrounds
- Central Green Plaza with shops and cafes
- Walking and cycling paths as a pedestrian community
- LEED condominiums and townhomes
- Heritage brick inspired lofts with 9 ft ceilings
- Central parking for home owners
