The Mission Group isn’t opening its presentation centre for the Brooklyn highrise in downtown Kelowna until Saturday and 70% of the development's suites sold in the last week.

The 25-storey tower is in downtown Kelowna on St. Paul Street near Bernard Avenue and features an outdoor lounge for residents on its rooftop.

“B.C. residents who currently reside in Kelowna or plan to move from Greater Vancouver made up 80% of purchasers,” states a news release from Mission Group issued today, Sept. 21. “The sales results so far showcase the ongoing trend of Vancouverites moving to Kelowna for a more affordable and idyllic lifestyle.”

In the last week, Mission Group sold 125 units, which are priced starting in the mid-$300,000 for a one bedroom. There are 178 units in the building altogether.

Still for sale are one and two-bedroom suites and a limited number of sub-penthouses.

“Our buyers love the convenience and quality of life each home offers,” Jessica Sorrell, director of sales at Mission Group, said in the news release. “In fact, several buyers initially interested in Brooklyn as an investment are now planning to move in at completion.”

The presentation centre opens at noon on Saturday at 560 Bernard Ave. It features an architectural model and a fully furnished two-bedroom display home.

The Brooklyn is the first of three towers Mission Group is building in what is dubbed the Bernard Block. The other planned highrises include a 16-storey office tower and a 34-storey residential tower.
