Mission Group, the developer of the Brooklyn residential project in Kelowna, B.C., confirmed the site had been returned to it in an Aug. 4 update to homeowners.

“We are working with adjusters, structural engineers and other consultants to help determine next steps and identify any changes to the completion timeline for the project,” the company said in the note.

“As more information on the timeline for completion becomes available in the coming weeks, we are committed to keeping you informed.”
