Crew dismantles crane as developer rethinks plans for building work
April 14, 2023 By Castanet
The construction crane that has been up for the past few years at the corner of Water Street and Lawrence Avenue in Kelowna, B.C. is finally leaving, as a crew began dismantling the structure after the owners of the former Keg building decided to scrap their previous plans for the site and start over.
The Mark Anthony Group had plans for a large redevelopment that incorporated the heritage facade, which would have included a new two-story building to accommodate a wine bar, lounge, rooftop deck, interpretive centre and tasting room, education centre and lab, and a wine shop.
Work on the site had stopped after the demolition of the previous building in the summer of 2021; as all previous plans have been scrapped, and a new design will have to be prepared, states the city’s planning director Ryan Smith.
