City of Kelowna grants height variance for 25-storey concrete condo tower in downtown Kelowna.
KELOWNA, B.C. Today, Mission Group confirms that Brooklyn at Bernard Block has received its final council approval from the City of Kelowna and will begin public sales in mid-to-late September. Brooklyn will offer 178 new homes and will be a part of a master-planned development located on Bernard Avenue and St. Paul Street.
While city council had already rezoned the site, issuing the development permit and approving the height variance from the current 19-storey height limit to 25 storeys allows Mission Group to commence sales. For updates on the sales timeline, interested parties can register at LiveatBrooklyn.com
Brooklyn at Bernard Block celebrates community and social connection with an impressive 25-storey concrete condo tower featuring a rooftop terrace unrivaled in Kelowna.
