Ella Tower downtown now as high as it'll get
Mission Group, the Okanagan’s leading real estate and development company, held a topping off ceremony today as the final ceremonial concrete was poured for ELLA, its contemporary upscale condominium tower in the heart of downtown Kelowna. The 20-storey concrete structure of the building is now complete, setting the final height of the building.
With this major construction milestone now achieved, the residential concrete high-rise is expected to be completed in early 2020. The award-winning high-rise is the first condo tower located in downtown’s historic Bernard District.
“We are very proud of the ELLA tower. The building represents the continued transformation of Kelowna’s historic downtown core into a vibrant, high-amenity urban environment. Our team has put in a tremendous effort to get to this point, starting with the original envisioning over three years ago,” says Luke Turri, Mission Group, executive vice president.
Through its unique LEED® certified concrete structure, ELLA’s construction follows Mission Group’s Inspired Green® approach; the company aims to significantly lessen its environmental footprint with each community it builds.
ELLA has already received national attention as Mission Group’s tower became the first Okanagan building to win the Mid-to-High Rise residential category at the 2019 Canadian Housing Builders’ Association (CHBA) National Awards for Housing Excellence in May of this year.
