The Belle Air sits within the Capri-Landmark neighbourhood. The neighbourhood is undergoing a major redevelopment with a new Urban Centre Plan addressing future growth and considerably higher density than the current single-family neighbourhood contains. In the city’s words, the neighbourhood is “one of Kelowna’s major employment hubs and an attractive location for apartment living.”

With more and more people working from home, the Belle Air focuses on a few key features to make staying at home all day a bit more fun.

Features include oversized balconies, ground floor gym and dog run, and a flexible space that contains both casual seating and desks, and a kitchenette. The amenity space opens onto the large double height atrium which can serve as an event space for the residents of the building. Parents looking after their kids can come down and take advantage of the interconnected ground floor spaces, join a video call in a quiet booth while keeping an eye on their kids.

Unit mix consists of ground floor live/work suites and upper level studios, and one and two bedroom units.
