We are excited as Kelson Group shared more details of the $140M project – City Gardens in Downtown Kamloops. The proposed $140M development is said to have a 22-storey and 18-storey tower, three 4 to 5-storey apartment buildings and six townhomes. 

“The name City Gardens has always been the foundation of our design because it captures our vision of a vibrant urban environment enhanced with green spaces and beautiful landscaping,” said Ron Fawcett, Founder & Executive Director of Kelson Group and the driving force behind the project. “This design concept brings the best of both worlds into one living space and will be a jewel in the downtown core.” 

The land area exceeds 150,000 square feet (about 3.5 acres), and the current design concept has 445,000 sq. ft of residential space or over 435 units. Expectations are that up to 60% of the housing will be market condos and the balance rental suites. Interest from the community will determine the final allocation. 

Plans for the development also include: 

  • · Up to 600 underground parking stalls over three levels below surface 
  • · Social gathering spaces like outdoor kitchens, lounge seating, and workout stations 
  • · A linear park with bench seating and walking paths 
  • · Lush plantings with a terrace garden, water features, and a Zen garden 
  • · An amphitheatre, dog run area, and a natural play park area 

Architects and landscape designers have created an overall concept of the development and were able to add in many elements to ensure accessibility while also providing important green spaces for the residents of City Gardens to enjoy. 

“We are very pleased with where we are today with the design,” said Jason. “We are looking forward to hearing back from the public, and depending on the interest, we would then move forward and apply for the development permit.”
