When it comes to explaining the merits of The Landing at Wood Lake, it’s hard to know where to begin, given that Troika Developments CEO Renee Wasylyk believes the project hits the sweet spot for proximity, pricing and popular things to do.

Under the leadership of Renee Wasylyk, Troika Developments has proven once again that community will always come ahead of business.
It was a late evening in September when Lake Country residents would learn the fate of Wood Lake project at the final city council meeting. Attendees who urged for a considerate development were pleased to find that The Landing, initially slated with an allowable density of 45 units, would be comprised of a relaxed 25 unit design instead. The updated plans called for extra green space in the community and a building height kept to a moderate three stories, preserving the nature and integrity of its surroundings.

West Harbour in the Vancouver Sun
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!
Our very own Renee Wasylyk was nominated by Kelowna 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!
