Plans for two towers to be built alongside UBC Okanagan’s future campus in Downtown Kelowna have now been submitted to city staff.

Mission Group submitted designs for a 30-storey residential tower and a 16-storey office tower at 550 Doyle Avenue to the City.  These 2 proposed towers would sit adjacent to the 32-storey campus being planned by the university, which will include student housing and eight levels of academic space.

Mission Group’s plan is for 287 residential units and 122,459 square feet of commercial office space. The towers will be constructed over a shared underground and above-grade parkade podium, consisting of 461 parking stalls. There will also  be 4,900 square feet of retail space at street level.

Kelowna city council will have to grant a height variance for the plan to go through, as the current building limit for the site is 12 storeys.
