More information about a massive condominium development in West Kelowna has been revealed.

Ariva Resorts will build a 200-home gated community on 12 1/2 acres of prime land that has been leased from Westbank First Nation. The development, which will overlook Okanagan Lake, will be geared towards “Zoomers,” who are active Baby Boomers looking to downsize from their single-family homes.

“This group is highly active, health conscious and want to live life to its fullest,” Ariva Resorts head Barry Johnson said. “Kelowna is the perfect place to live with its excellent climate, wines and vineyards, myriad of outdoor activities and remains affordable.”

The goal is to break ground on the multi-million-dollar project in 2020, and homes will range in price from $500,000 to $1.9 million. Units will be 1,250 to 1,760 square feet, and will feature large outdoor decks that create a great room when glass, lake-view interior doors are opened.

To keep the “Zoomers” moving, there will be electric bikes available for riding, pickleball courts, a putting green, bocce courts, a children’s playground and a two-acre urban farm on which residents will be able to garden.

Ariva, which has been in the works for seven years, will also contain a café/bistro, wine bar, lounge, terraced view patio, fitness centre, yoga studio, gym and multi-purpose rooms that will spill out on the pool area with cabanas, barbecue and picnic area complete with a long farm table for entertaining.

There will also be a concierge on hand who will arrange events, community functions, valley excursions and group travel opportunities.
