In response to population growth, commercial development and the construction of Interior Health's new Community Health and Services Centre, additional parking space was needed to accommodate the influx of people and vehicles in  downtown Kelowna. Groundwater conditions made underground parking impractical, so RJC designed a six-storey, 566 stall, above ground parking structure with a two-level office space in response to the city’s requirements. The structure consists of precast concrete double tees to reduce the overall building weight while allowing long, column free spans for easier maneuvering and parking.
