New Construction - University Heights – Kelowna Homes with Legal Suites

  • +1

Blog by Marika Wolf | January 12th, 2017


This development first made its way to Kelowna late 2015.  I was lucky enough to share a booth with the developer and gal in charge of the project sales at the Vancouver Home Show, and learned all about this fantastic idea of developing a community of homes near the University Campus and Airport that have legal suites and can house A LOT of people.

The developer Whitfield Hall has two projects in Kelowna. The first is Crawford Point in the Upper Mission.  Simply buy a lot and bring your own builder to build your dream home.  The second development is the one and only University Heights, Bringing Excellence Home – nice tagline! I am working with a client interested so figured I should share the info with everyone else as their website doesn’t give that much info and is not on MLS.

Located just off Academy way close to the UBC Okanagan Campus, University Heights is an exciting new community beginning construction of its first show home in the summer of 2016. University Heights features residences in a wide variety of styles, along with green spaces parks and is close to many world-class amenities.

There are 49 lots in this development to choose from but of course the hype has seen some sales already.  The project should commence any time now as City registration is on its way!  Breaking ground in March will allow some homes to be ready in September – just in time for school to start.

All of the homes have legal 2 or 3 bedroom suites with 2 or 3 bedrooms upstairs and are around 1400 square feet per floor.  There is a double garage and some yard as well. The homes range in price roughly between $500,000 and $700,000.  This is a new construction so there will be a 5% GST on top of the build.  To have a home with a legal suite in Kelowna for this price is almost unheard of so if you are thinking about an investment property give me a call and I can send you some specifics!

If you have ANY questions about real estate in Kelowna, or questions on any homes for sale please call/text/email me.

Happy Buying and Selling,
