Marina moving along

The first phase of Kelowna's new marina and pier could be complete by the end of next week.

While there isn't much activity around the construction sites right now, Gail Temple, Director of Development for Westcorp, the company constructing the $5M pier and marina, expects that to change soon.

"They are going to start driving piles now for the rest of the commercial pier," says Temple.

"This week they will be doing that and next week the boats will move. That's the expectation of the time frame we have in front of us."

Temple says commercial boat owners have been told they can expect to move to their spots at the commercial pier by the end of next week.

She says millwork still needs to be done inside the ticket building which has been erected at the entrance of the commercial pier meaning that building may not be fully functional at the time the boats do move.

As for the public pier, Temple says construction of buildings is going on at a site on the west side of Okanagan Lake.

"The expectation is un fortunately that will be sometime in June," says Temple.

"We had really hoped it would be sometime in May but it is clearly going to be in June when that (public pier) is up and running."

Temple says the current focus is on completion of the commercial marina.
