Kelowna blooms

Kelowna blooms

Late evening, atop a part-finished office building in downtown Kelowna the property boom is clear. In the urban space, new luxury apartment blocks and technology incubation hubs. In the hills, gated communities surrounded by vineyards. Along the main highway, a mass of retail signs just like in the States.

We were shown around by a young entrepreneur who’s soon to open a restaurant on the roof-top. He spoke about ambitious plans to bring new industries here. With scenic vistas of Lake Okanagan and a dry, sunny climate, Kelowna is one of the fastest growing cities in Canada.
