If you’re tired of commuting, own a small business, want to live in a beautiful new building with many amenities that make you never want to leave, ONE Water Street has the perfect solution.

This week, the downtown Kelowna project named the city’s best seller, is introducing the Live-Work Collection. It will consist of six business spaces at street level of the ONE Water Street towers along with a luxury home on the second level. They will be connected by a staircase.

“It’s a great place to work and live,” Kerkhoff Construction president Leonard Kerkhoff says. “It’s an opportunity for business owners that have a smaller practice, whether it’s an accounting firm, consultant, hairstylist or an art studio person … just those smaller businesses that want that interface with the public at street level and want to live in that same space.”

The commercial spaces, which range from 1,400 to 2,000 square feet, will be unfinished and ready for business customization. They will feature primed walls, open ceilings, a commercial-grade aluminum door, a washroom wood door, 100-amp electrical service, and a roughed-in washroom and wet bar.

The living area on the second storey will have one bedroom and a large den, or a flex space, and the finishes will be consistent with the interiors throughout ONE Water Street.

Anyone who purchases a Live-Work Collection space will also have access to all the amenities on The Bench, the 1.3-acre space on the four-storey podium between and around the two towers. The outdoor features include two swimming pools, generously sized hot tub, patio with tables and couches, grilling stations and harvest picnic tables, fire pit enclaves, dog park and pickleball court.

Indoor amenities include private health club with fully equipped gym, dedicated yoga/Pilates studio plus secondary rooms available for stretching, multi-purpose entertainment room with kitchen, seating and dining areas, business centre and guest suites.

Best of all, both your business and your home will be in the middle of all the action downtown, just steps from everything you could ever want.

“It’s a great spot,” Kerkhoff says. “Ellis is a busy street, across from The Train Station Pub and the Central restaurant. It’s a great interface with a dynamic downtown Kelowna city core.”

Not only that, but you will also have a network of hundreds of people living in the ONE Water Street community.

“You’ve got, in-house, 426 homes in the property at ONE Water Street alone,” he says. “You’ll be able to tap into that and have a built-in clientele. It’s phenomenal.”

ONE Water Street, which is being co-developed by North American Development Group and Kerkhoff Construction, is currently under construction. The first tower is scheduled to be completed by late 2020, with the second one expected to be done nine months later.
