This could be your Mission

Available lots in Kelowna’s Lower Mission are few and far between, especially affordable ones.

In fact, there were a grand total of four sold in the neighbourhood all of last year.

That is what makes The Orchard in the Mission so unique. It is a chance for you to build a new home in one of Kelowna’s most desirable neighbourhoods.

“I don’t know of any other land that’s available to develop in the Lower Mission that’s not in the ALR,” Re/Max real estate agent Jesse East says.

The Orchard, which will consist of 103 single-family lots just off DeHart Road near Gordon Drive, will start selling on Monday morning. It is located only two blocks from Dorothea Walker Elementary and is within walking distance of Capital News Centre, H2O Centre and Mission Creek Greenway.

The prices start at $299,900, and buyers are not locked into using builders determined by the project’s developers.

“The public can bring their own builders,” East says. “There are a few that are familiar with the project and we’ve been working closely with that would be happy to work with buyers who don’t have a builder.

“The building scheme allows for a nice variety of home styles, but homes will still need to meet the architectural approval process."

Aside from being close to recreational opportunities like Okanagan Lake and H2O Centre, there will also be two parks located in The Orchard neighbourhood. It promises to be a peaceful neighbourhood, surrounded by ALR on two sides and with a beautiful landscaping plan.

The first phase of lots should be prepared for construction this summer, with the second and third phases being delivered in the coming 12 to 18 months.

The lots will range from 4,500 square feet to 26,500 square feet, which means there will be something for everyone looking to live in the middle of it all.
