West Kelowna formally known as MacDonald’s Plain (1811-1848), Sunnyside (1872-1881), Hall’s Landing (1901) and Westbank (1902-2009), is home to over 30,000 Okanagan residents and two self-governing reserves; Tsinstikeptum #9 and Tsinstikeptum #10. The area of West Kelowna extends from the west side of Okanagan Lake to Glenrosa, and up until December 2007 West Kelowna had remained an unincorporated area in the Okanagan Valley. When the question arose whether to incorporate or amalgamate with the City of Kelowna, it became quite clear that the residents had their own proud identity in which they wished to express in the formation of their own municipality.
West Kelowna has grown rapidly over the last few years, and continues to grow at an astonishing rate. In the past two years we have seen big box stores such as Superstore, Walmart, Future Shop and Winners flood into West Kelowna’s downtown shopping centre. West Kelowna is made up of a variety of single family homes, condominiums and townhomes; both on free hold and leased land. Some of the most popular neighbourhoods in West Kelowna are Lakeview Heights, Glenrosa, Shannon Lake and Smith Creek.
The residential real estate market in West Kelowna is comprised of everything from vacation properties, condominiums, townhomes, single family and extravagant multi-million dollar homes.
