KAMLOOPS, B.C. – Our team at ARPA Investments (ARPA) is immensely proud to announce that one of our development projects has won a Keystone Award in the BC Central Interior’s 2022 Housing Awards of Excellence.
The Canadian Home Builder’s Association of Central Interior (CHBA-CI), hosts the annual Keystone Awards, an event that celebrates housing excellence in the city of Kamloops. This year, the awards gala was held on April 9 at the Grand Hall at Thompson Rivers University. The evening celebrated and recognized this year’s silver finalists for BC Central Interior’s Housing Awards of Excellence, for their outstanding real estate development projects.
ARPA was nominated in three categories for our development project, The Colours on Spirit Square Stollery Suites for:
Best Multi-Family Low Rise (Condo)
Best Marketing Website Project
Best Public/Private Partnership.
We took home the gold award in the category of Best Multi-Family Low Rise (Condo)
ARPA partners Joshua Knaak, Parmjit Mahal and Jasbir Mahal were honoured to be recognized alongside all the remarkable finalists.
The Colours on Spirit Square Stollery Suites is a development project of ARPA Investments in collaborative partnership with ASK Wellness, the Stollery Foundation, the City of Kamloops and BC Housing.
“Working alongside our partners toward finding innovative solutions that promote the future growth of this vibrant and diverse neighbourhood has been something our team has thoroughly enjoyed,” said Knaak.
The two-phase development includes the Stollery Suites with 47 units providing affordable housing to senior residents and The Colours on Spirit Square with 38 market units and commercial space. The development is the right fit, adding vibrancy, security and a sense of community to the North Shore neighbourhood, explained Knaak.
“We look at the community through a different lens as developers and problem solvers, finding great spaces overlooked by others, knowing what we can do to help revitalize our community through innovative projects.”
ARPA would like to acknowledge the many community partners and sub-trades for their phenomenal work on this collaborative effort; and the CHBA-CI as a leading advocate of the residential construction industry across the interior of BC.
