KELOWNA - A new 23-storey office tower is planned for the Landmark district in Kelowna, rising above the 18-storey Landmark 6.

This will bring the number of buildings to seven in the business complex bounded by Burtch and Kirchner Roads next to Highway 97.

It will “focus on drawing businesses that would typically invest in the Lower Mainland - bringing well-paying business and technology jobs to Kelowna,” states a news release from Al Stober Construction.

The company estimates there will be 5,000 employees in the Landmark district when the proposed tower is finished in the spring of 2022, making an efficient transit system more viable.

Designed by Stoke Tonne of Meiklejohn Architects Inc., Landmark 7 will be an ultra-modern complement to the neighbourhood, the news release states.

It will have 224,000 square feet of commercial office and retail space with shops and restaurants at street level.

A public outdoor plaza will connect the project from Dickson Avenue to the Landmark district market (slated to open next spring) through to the Parkinson Recreation Centre pedestrian overpass. It will include a fitness centre, an 11,000 square foot fifth-floor events centre that will seat up to 350 people and have an outdoor entertainment deck and community gardens.

“We have had a record year with leasing and simply do not have enough space to meet the demand," Dallas Gray, Marketing Agent Commercial Properties for Al Stober Construction, said in the release.
