West Harbour in the Vancouver Sun

Posted by | News | No Comments

We are thrilled to have been featured in the Vancouver Sun Newspaper this weekend! In case you missed the story, Renee Wasylyk, our CEO, sat down with Michael Bernard to discuss West Harbour, one of Kelowna’s most successful lakeside communities.

Renee explained her thought process behind the 250-home low-rise village development in collaboration with the landowner and Chief Roxanne Lindley. Despite the broad demographic, the West Harbour residents are connected by their love of the outdoors. West Harbour certainly fosters a strong sense of community, and Renee also emphasized the relationship to the Westbank First Nation and Troika’s legacy fund, another main attraction to the development. West Harbour also offers many amenities, and additionally, the upcoming Harbour Club is highly anticipated. The third phase of the development will offer 16 duplexes and three different home models, starting at $590,000. Renee could not be happier with the continued success of the community!

Mayor Colin Basran’s ‘One Bag Challenge’

Posted by | News | No Comments

Our very own Renee Wasylyk was nominated by Mayor Colin Basran for the One Bag Challenge. Not familiar? Read about it and watch his original video here. The One Bag Challenge is a twist on the ‘Ice Bucket Challenge’, where Kelowna locals are challenged to bring a full bag of food to the Greater Okanagan Food Bank during the month of July, when their supplies are at their lowest. 

Renee graciously accepted, and nominated five more people. See who she nominated by watching the video here.

But the fun didn’t end there.

Within 24 hours, Renee received two more nominations: from Kelowna – Lake Country MLA, Norm Letnick, and Kelowna City Manager, Ron Matiussi.

She decided to take the One Bag Challenge to the next level. See what she did here.

In just 10 days, the Greater Okanagan food bank collected 24,000. Congratulations and thank you to everybody that participated!

Troika Tribe: Kelowna Developer Welcomes New Partner [Press Release]

Posted by | News | No Comments

Rich Threlfall becomes partner at Troika Management Corp.

February 16, 2016 – Kelowna BC – Kelowna-based land and real estate development company, Troika Developments, announced today that engineer Rich Threlfall would be added to the list of partners, adding a new skillset to their already esteemed leadership team.

Threlfall’s breadth of knowledge and experience in sustainable civil engineering and land development has aided Troika in significant growth during his four year tenure as Development Project Manager for the company. “Rich started with Troika as a consultant a decade ago, but became a part of our Troika tribe four years ago” says Renee Wasylyk, Founder and CEO of Troika. “It soon became apparent that we didn’t see the future of Troika without his leadership and presence. Brad Klassen and I decided to bring on another partner for the first time in 10 years. Rich Threlfall is the next generation of Troika”.

Threlfall came to the Kelowna developer via CTQ Consultants Ltd., where he planned and designed communities, parks and public spaces for many local developers, institutions and municipalities, including Troika. Here he played an integral role in the conception and manifestation of Troika’s West Harbour, an extraordinary Tuscan-style waterfront community in West Kelowna. “Rich was instrumental in bringing about our last four successful projects. It was evident that he thought more like an entrepreneurial developer than an engineering consultant.” says Wasylyk. “He understands community.”

Having worked with the Troika Tribe in various capacities for nearly ten years, Threlfall admires their forward-thinking nature and commitment to community and their team.

“We are a team dedicated to having fun while building carefully planned and sustainable communities that enhance the daily life of our residents, and that is what sets Troika apart as a developer” Threlfall explained, “I am truly grateful for the opportunity to partner with Brad and Renee to develop and lead a team of passionate professionals, including our colleagues, consultants, contractors and partners.”

The new partnership announcement comes amidst a hiring blitz at Troika, having recently increased their workforce by approximately 10%, due to recent growth and strategic restructuring.
