PENTICTON - The Skaha Hills development continues to move forward in the hills above Penticton Regional Airport west of the city.
Penticton Indian Band Development Corporation consultant Chris Scott says Phase One sold out in the spring and contracts are now closing on Phase Two.
Phase Three is expected to begin sales in another three or four months, with the $5.2 million winery and vineyard expected to open next spring.
“We’re very excited to see the subdivision begin taking shape. Work is already underway to build homes higher on the bench,” he says, adding sales continue to exceed expectations.
A total of 600 homes are expected to be built in seven phases on the site, located on Penticton Indian Band land just west of the airport.
Scott says the development corporation met with representatives from the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure in early October to discuss the intersection at Highway 97. He says negotiations are progressing, with construction slated to begin in one or two years.
