ONE Varsity in Kelowna: The New Heart of Downtown
The University District: Kelowna’s Emerging Urban Hub
For over fifteen years, the University of British Columbia Okanagan (UBCO) has been flourishing on the outskirts of Kelowna. With more than 9,000 students currently enrolled and projections indicating a rise to 20,000 by 2040, a new era is dawning. UBCO Downtown is now emerging at the core of the city, within the University District. This strategic relocation represents a pivotal moment, as the new UBCO campus seamlessly integrates innovation and education into Kelowna’s diverse landscape, establishing a cutting-edge haven that attracts ambitious minds and serves as a lifelong learning center for all.
Innovative Design ONE Varsity, as one of Canada’s pioneering vertically-oriented neighborhoods, fosters a sense of community among residents much like a traditional horizontal street in a neighborhood.
Nestled in the heart of the newly developed University District, ONE Varsity provides its residents with an intelligent and practical home base for their work, education, and leisure pursuits. To enhance the dynamic atmosphere of the downtown core, ONE Varsity incorporates pixelation and paneling into its design, generating vertical and horizontal movement along the building’s exterior and street level. This thoughtfully designed contemporary architecture serves as an urban landmark that contributes to the downtown Kelowna skyline.
ONE Varsity’s residences are crafted for contemporary living and modern preferences. These homes prioritize spacious living areas and ample storage. The choice of materials and finishes emphasizes both style and durability, with a focus on easy maintenance and eco-friendly considerations. The designer-curated color schemes draw inspiration from the stunning Okanagan surroundings, including the lake, city, and valley views.
