The central location alone makes Kelowna’s Green Square Vert one of the most attractive places to live in the Okanagan.
Add in how the buildings were designed, the amenities offered and the community atmosphere exhibited, and it becomes an even more appealing development in which to live your best Okanagan life.
The 10th and final phase of the Lower Mission development has broken ground and is now for sale. There are 65 homes available in the six- and seven-storey buildings, including one-bedroom units, townhouses and lake-view penthouses. In other words, it has something for everyone.
Troika Management Corp., the company that first broke ground on the development nearly 10 years ago, is also providing financial incentive for potential buyers, paying strata fees for the first three years of ownership if they purchase before May 31, 2021.
While the buildings are taller and slimmer to create better sightlines and less shadowing, it’s the location, the amenities and the community feel that make it stand out from the rest.
It is a short walk or bike ride away from Rotary Beach on a wide, shared-use pathway along Barrera Road, and from there it’s only a hop, skip and a jump to Gyro Beach. Pandosy Village is also just a short bike ride or walk away. Green Square Vert is also close enough to downtown that it’s a 20-minute commute on a bicycle.
Mission Creek Park, H20 Centre and Capital News Centre are all in the neighbourhood, as is every level of schooling. It doesn’t get much more central than Green Square Vert.
“You see it with people being out and about and doing stuff, whether they’re walking the dogs or getting home from biking from work or the beach,” Threlfall says. “It’s a really active area with lots of opportunity to go and do things.”
The community at Green Square Vert is as diverse as it gets, from young professionals to retirees who are enjoying their golden years in one of the finest cities in Canada. There are plenty of families, too, which Threlfall was thankful for because his son was never without play buddies while growing up.
“You could walk out your door, and the kids have four, five or six different doors they can knock on to have someone to play with at any given time,” he says.
Several people bought homes at Green Square Vert as their retirement spot but are renting out the space until they are ready to put their feet up and enjoy the Okanagan lifestyle. Since this is the 10th and final phase of the project, this is their last chance to do just that.
The area surrounding the buildings features community gardens, a tot lot, green corridors and walkways, and plenty of open spaces. Troika also purchased an electric Modo car that is based at Green Square Vert, and each new homeowner gets a one-year subscription to the car-sharing service for those quick trips that are just out of biking distance.
