Kelowna City Hall

The City-owned site at 3731 Old Okanagan Highway will soon become a vibrant area with expanded civic services. The area will be a welcoming gathering place and a catalyst for revitalization due to its proximity to Westbank Centre, Memorial Park, the Johnson Bentley Aquatic Centre (JBMAC), and the Annette Beaudreau Memorial Amphitheatre. It is an exciting time to celebrate how we serve the Greater Westside and all that it has to offer as a vibrant place to live, work, and play.

The detailed design of Kelowna’s first City Hall/Okanagan Regional Library Building is currently in progress. The community is invited to participate and provide feedback to help guide the final design of the building and area.

Meiklejohn Architects provided comprehensive architectural services for the renovation, which converted the whole third floor and half of the second floor into much more functional workspaces. New offices for the Mayor, City Managers, and City Council were built, as well as a new boardroom, a large pen work area, and staff amenity space. Level 2 renovations included the installation of a new counter that opened onto the main counter and the creation of more efficient work areas.

Our office collaborated closely with the City of Kelowna British Columbia to ensure that all materials met the City’s durability and maintenance standards. A number of level 3 offices were also demountable as part of the project’s flexible partitioning system, which provides the City with future reconfiguration options.
