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!
