The North Shore Welcomes New Waterfront Living
Kamloops, B.C.: ARPA Investments (ARPA) is celebrating the successful rezoning application for their newest development Thompson Landing on Royal, approved at a City of Kamloops City Council meeting yesterday. The multi-unit riverfront development is the North Shore’s newest residential addition to the community, expanding the housing inventory in the city with unique waterfront living options.
“Thompson Landing on Royal was introduced to the public in January of this year, where we shared our intention to activate the potential of riverfront properties along the Tranquille corridor,” said Joshua Knaak, one of the partners of ARPA. “After yesterday’s Council meeting, City Council unanimously approved our rezoning application of the property from single-family to multi-family zoning. We are excited and look forward to bringing unique waterfront living options to Kamloops.”
Highlights of Thompson Landing on Royal include:
● 64 residential units, from studio units to two-bedroom + den suites, and rooftop terraces
● central open-air courtyard overlooking the river
● covered, concrete parking structure with 86 parking stalls
● electric vehicle charging stations
● energy-efficient construction designed to maximize efficiency and minimize carbon footprint
“Royal Avenue is a bit of a hidden gem and a great spot to live,” said Knaak, who himself has recently moved into the neighbourhood. “New residents will enjoy North Shore amenities like McDonald Park, the Rivers Trail, local craft beer at Bright Eye Brewing, and culinary delights at the Yew Street Food Hall set to open in a few months. All in very close proximity.”
As part of ARPA’s key commitments to community collaboration, the team would like to thank many in the community for their letters of support, including the North Shore Business Improvement Association (NSBIA), United Way Thompson Nicola Cariboo (TNC), and McDonald Park Neighbourhood Association who have all voiced their support of ARPA’s vision for Thompson Landing on Royal.
“ARPA has consistently demonstrated their commitment to building and improving the communities they work in through supporting both local nonprofits and businesses with mindful project plans,” said Katie Neustaeter, United Way British Columbia Regional Director of the Thompson Nicola Cariboo. “Their intentional sensitivity toward the needs of integrated, affordable housing has changed the landscape of need on Kamloops’ North Shore.”
Bryce Herman, President of the NSBIA also commends ARPA's efforts in serving the community, stating, “this project will serve as the much-needed link to realize the revitalization and transition of this area of the Shore over the coming years.”
ARPA would like to thank the community for their support and responses to their efforts to engage the community. Now, the team at ARPA turns its attention to construction.
“Thompson Landing on Royal will now move to its next phase to obtain a Building Permit and we plan to start our work this Winter with anticipated completion for Spring 2024,” said Knaak. To learn more about the launch of our sales visit www.thompsonlanding.ca and subscribe to our newsletter.
