Bernard condo selling well

Brooklyn at Bernard Block has already sold 70 per cent of its units before it opens up to the public this weekend, and the Mission Group developers behind the condominium believe that is because the people who are buying are actually going to live there.

There is still a wide variety of price points available for consumers, which is not the way they usually sell in Kelowna. Usually the most affordable units go first, but Brooklyn is selling primarily from the top down and at different locations throughout the building.

Mission Group development vice-president Luke Turri said the impending speculation tax has likely hindered sales somewhat, but he was still “surprised” at the strength of the launch.

“Our goal, whenever we’re designing a program for a building, is to have the sales process go in this sort of way, where you’ve got a fairly even skew to where homes are purchased throughout the building—not just from top to bottom, but also throughout the floor plate of the building,” Turri said.

“So what we have seen, at least from the demand and the demand for the remaining homes, is a range of different interests in different housing types. So for a developer that’s fantastic, because we’ve hit the mark in terms of that niche. That doesn’t always happen, but it looks like it’s gone fairly well for Brooklyn.”

Mission Group will open Brooklyn’s presentation centre on Saturday at noon. It features a fully furnished, two-bedroom display home with a realistic view from the 17th floor.
