468 West Avenue (468 West) is an elegant collection of boutique-style rental apartments in the vibrant community of Pondosy Village in Kelowna, British Columbia. This lakefront development features one-, two- and three-bedroom pet-friendly suites with in-suite laundry and bright, open-concept living spaces. 468 West creates an amenity-rich experience for residents with proximity to Kelowna’s best parks, shops, restaurants and cafes.
Williams Engineering (WE) provided building envelope consulting engineering services for the construction of the six-storey mixed-use apartment building. The gross floor area is approximately 53,136 square feet, with six commercial retail units, a lobby, storage, office, and pet wash on the first level. There are 48 residential suites throughout the building, 14,500 square feet of covered parking garage space and an 8,660 square foot community deck and garden. WE’s building science team provided a written report with recommendations and comments on the building envelope and roofing systems reviewed on drawings and specifications provided by the architect. Building envelope and roofing system site reviews were conducted by WE during construction to visually review critical building envelope details and roofing components and ensure construction was completed with conformity to the design.
With Okanagan Lake less than a block away, 468 West provides residents with plenty of options to enjoy the community and nearby outdoor activities. As single-family home prices continue to rise in Kelowna, 468 West offers renters an affordable option with stunning suites in the heart of the city.
