Brooklyn at Bernard Kelowna

One of Mission Group’s latest development projects Brooklyn at Bernard has advanced the approval process by Kelowna’s city council.

The project, a 25-storey tower just north of Bernard Avenue on St. Paul street has transitioned from zoning destination C-4 to C-7. This is set to have the site’s designation in-line with the majority of downtown Kelowna.

Future homeowners of the Brooklyn suites will have the ability to live there themselves or offer short-term rentals through online services such as Airbnb.

Several individuals at the public hearing at City hall expressed their reservations about short-term rentals.

Critics state rentals such as these will decrease Kelowna’s supply of long-term rental units, while also allowing for unfair competition amongst other establishments such as hotels.
