Downtown Revitalization - Development and New Parkades
The City and Interior Health are working together to move a number of Interior Health’s community services and programs onto Doyle Avenue in Kelowna’s downtown.
The project encourages the development of the downtown area with higher density land use and upgrades for better, safer parking. Bringing nearly 800 jobs into the downtown area will also stimulate business, transit and housing in the area.
To accommodate the development and provide more weekend and evening parking the City is expanding the Library Parkade and building a new parkade on the Memorial Arena property (Ellis Street Parkade).
Library Parkade Expansion
Construction will start in the early 2015, with completion in 2016. The parkade will stay open during construction for short term and monthly parking pass holders.
Other Surface Parking Changes in the Area
As surface parking lots on Doyle Avenue and on the Memorial Arena property close for construction, there will be changes to short term parking and for monthly parking pass holders.
For more information see the project factsheet, information for monthly parking pass holders or the downtown parking page.
