WATCH THE BLOCK GROW SKYWARD
The Block is under construction and steadily making progress towards its anticipated completion in winter 2023. Keep an eye on this page for regular updates as the building progresses!
Construction is progressing smoothly with concrete pouring complete to Level 11. Masonry, fire protection, mechanical, and electrical work is underway from Levels 1-5.
Precast cladding is now complete on the South and East elevations. The Level 10 typical floor on Bertram and Level 9 on The Block have been poured.
With the final pour of the Level 6 transfer slab, the parking structure is complete. We'll now watch as the tower steadily rises to its full 17-storey height.
The team completed the Level 5 vertical as well as all slab decks forming for Level 6.
This month the team began formwork on the west tower quadrant and completed the east vertical concrete for Level 5.
The Block continues its upward momentum with the slab for Level 2 having been poured. The pour for Level 3 is anticipated for early June.
The first slab-on-grade is poured, marking the first step in The Block’s vertical progress.
262 pilings are driven into the ground with innovative, vibration-reducing technology, setting the stage for the first concrete pour.
Construction officially kicks off for The Block. Work begins to excavate the site for pilings and below grade operations.
Fencing is installed and crews begin to demolish the existing structure. Demolition is complete after 86 days.
Downtown Kelowna’s first Class A office tower is approved by Kelowna city council. Next door to master-planned residential communities Bertram and Brooklyn, The Block is set to bring a new energy and commercial hub to downtown like never before.
