After participating in a formal RFP process in early 2012, Westcorp was formally awarded the Downtown Marina project on March 26, 2012. According to the terms of the RFP, Westcorp will own and operate the marina for a minimum of 15 years. The marina project includes a main floating pier for public pedestrian use and 68 itinerant (hourly and daily use) pleasure boat slips. A separate commercial pier will accommodate 7 commercial boats and an accessory ticket kiosk. The target date for completion of construction is May 2013.
Westcorp is thrilled and excited to be a participant in the evolution of downtown Kelowna. Our company is committed to supporting the vision of a vibrant, attractive and welcoming downtown Kelowna core and believe that a new waterfront “gateway” can play a pivotal role. The new marina, with its elegant and interesting architecture, is designed to be a destination for boaters and pedestrians alike. Boaters will be able to easily access the downtown core to shop or recreate, and pedestrians will be invited to stroll along the pier or enjoy the view from the many benches.
