Craig Mohr has spent the last 20 years of his career building towards what will be a most unique development in Kelowna’s Pandosy Village.
450 Parc is a six-storey condominium development that will soon be rising from the ground on Groves Avenue, and Mohr, the man behind Vineyard Developments, cannot wait to bring it to life.
“450 Parc is just simply the best location in Kelowna,” he says.
It will also be unlike anything else in the Okanagan. There is not another six-storey strata building in Kelowna that is built out of concrete.
“If you want to be in a luxury, small-strata-built building,” Mohr says, “this is it.”
The Kelowna developer promises “sophisticated living” and “timeless elegance” to those who live in 450 Parc, whose inspiration comes from Manhattan’s Soho neighbourhood. It will feature reclaimed brick on its exterior, glass expanses, concrete, steel, sandstone—all resulting in a contrast of classical and cutting edge.
“They’re all authentic materials that are all going to stand the test of time,” Mohr says.
The homes, which will be fitting for those transitioning out of single-family houses, all feature two or three bedrooms, two bathrooms, high ceilings and no fewer than 1,710 square feet when you include both indoor and outdoor spaces. The majority of the homes have two parking spaces, and the building is free of hallways connecting each unit, providing an unparalleled level of privacy and protection from neighbouring smells and noise.
The 22 homes also boast a front-to-back connection, as the view to the north is Abbott Park and the one to the west is Okanagan Lake from the third floor and up. Residents can spend the morning bathed in sun on the south side and then relax in the shade on the north side of the building.
“It’s a very boutique, luxury development with a ton of charm and a real strong community sense,” Mohr says.
450 Parc may be in a quiet location, but it is remarkably close to the hustle and bustle of Pandosy Village. Residents will be surrounded by unique restaurants, cafés and boutiques, salons and spas, health and wellness centres and numerous lifestyle services. They will also not be far from public transportation and Kelowna General Hospital, and downtown is only a 15-minute walk away.
“What’s so great about this location is it’s tucked in between Abbott and Pandosy, so we’re not backing directly onto Abbott and we’re not backing directly onto Pandosy,” Mohr says. “We’re nestled right in the middle, so from that standpoint it’s very quiet. It’s a little bit more private.”
The cherry on top is the fact that Okanagan Lake is only a stone’s throw away as well.
