Sales of condominiums on former Bargain Shop site expected to start this Summer
KELOWNA, B.C. Mission Group announced new details of the first phase of its master planned downtown community on the former Bargain Shop site as it filed its development permit application with the City of Kelowna.
Newly named, Brooklyn at Bernard Block is a concrete condominium tower on 1471 St. Paul Street just off Bernard Avenue and part of a three-phase plan that will eventually include two additional condominium towers on Bernard Avenue. Mission Group is proposing a 24-storey condo tower featuring a rooftop lounge and outdoor terrace amenity for residents as well as brick and iron detailing along St. Paul’s leafy tree-lined street.

“Brooklyn at Bernard Block represents an opportunity for homebuyers to get in early on a high-rise master planned community right in the heart of Kelowna’s Bernard District,” says Randall Shier, president at Mission Group. Its selection of homes includes: 1 bedroom, 1 bedroom and den, 2 bedrooms, and a limited collection of sub-penthouses.
Brooklyn is also zoned for short-term rentals. “The ability to offset the cost of your investment by renting it w hen you please is a game changer,” adds Shier. “First-time homebuyers and working professionals will love the flexibility offered by the option of earning money while they are away from home.”
Brooklyn’s design features street level retail and above grade structured parking. As a result, every home will have a view. The building will follow Mission Group’s Inspired GreenÒ approach which aims to lessen the builder’s environmental footprint in five areas: energy, water, air quality, recycling, and climate change.
Sales of Brooklyn are expected to start this Summer with competitive pricing from the $300,000’s. Please register at www.liveatbrooklyn.com to receive updates on this exciting new development.
Brooklyn is literally steps away from Kelowna’s main street, Bernard Avenue, and close walking distance to a broad range of goods and services. Having undergone a $14 million revitalization, Bernard Avenue has transformed into a vibrant destination with trend setting local cuisine, creative social houses, boutiques, culture and entertainment destinations.
Brooklyn’s exceptionally high Walk Score® of 98 out of 100 defines it a Walker’s Paradise close to Okanagan Lake, the new Kelowna Yacht Club and the recreational City Park and waterfront boardwalk.
