Crane, crane, go away

A massive tower crane that has operated next to the Ella development in downtown Kelowna for more than a year is coming down.

The crane was set up in June last year, then raised above the 20-storey expanse of the building in the spring.

In order to make way for the dismantling and removal of the crane, Ellis Street between Lawrence and Bernard avenues will be closed for three days, beginning Monday morning.

The crane removal marks another milestone for the project, which broke ground early last year.

Ella is expected to open in early 2020.

Businesses in the area will remain open during the closure, with parking available on nearby downtown streets and within the Chapman Parkade on Lawrence Avenue.

Parkade parking is available at no charge during weekday evenings after 6 p.m. and all day Saturday and Sunday, except during special events.
