UBCO receives building permit for downtown campus


The University of British Columbia Okanagan has received a $262M building permit from the City of Kelowna for its downtown campus. Though preparations have already started at the Doyle Avenue site, this building permit will allow for construction to commence on the campus. The permit is reportedly the highest value permit ever awarded by the city and the tower will be Kelowna’s tallest building at 43 storeys once it is completed. The building is expected to include an underground parkade, street-level amenities, UBCO’s School of Nursing and Social Work, and 500 residential units.
