The City of Kelowna would like your help to continue its drive to make Kelowna a world class city.

The past Ten years has seen a wonderful transition to our downtown, but we are just getting started. The next Ten years will see a major transition.

We are seeking expressions of interest from our development community. The goal is to find the right partner(s) to work with the City of Kelowna to improve the entrance to our city and enhance all the incredible things happening downtown.

Interested parties are encouraged to meet with HM Commercial Group and the City’s Planning Department to get a clear understanding of the desired outcome. A shortlist of proponents will be selected to advance their designs. It is important to understand, this is not a bid process, where the highest number gets the property. Strong consideration will be given for innovation in design and other civic benefits The prime goal is to enhance the entrance to our community.
