Last year, Manteo owner Adrian Block received City of Kelowna approval for a $100-million redevelopment of the property. This fall, 18 townhomes will be built on the site of a motel that had been located immediately north of Manteo. Two towers, of 10 and 12 storeys, will be built later.

The Rykon Group, a visionary developer of communities known for their creativity and master planning, is eager to stimulate confidence in the real estate market with a bold decision to introduce a limited selection of one level townhomes at an astonishing sale price of $269,900 in its popular Sonoma Pines community. 
"There is currently a lot of inventory in the Okanagan real estate market," states Adrian Block, CEO and president of The Rykon Group.
"Yet buyers who are embracing the wait and see approach to snap up bargains may be disappointed. Block is familiar with recent sales analysis provided by the Okanagan Mainline Real Estate Board (OMREB).
The two bedroom, two bathroom interiors are efficiently designed and depending on the unit location, new homeowners will be able to choose between the scenic views of the Two Eagles 14th fairway, Mission Hill Winery and, Okanagan Lake.

"The Westside is rapidly growing," admits Block. "And finding affordable homes so near to the city centre is only going to get more difficult as land is swallowed up by commercial, retail, and higher density developments. Our residents love living at Sonoma Pines and I feel confident that those who invest in this offering now will also find tremendous satisfaction in their decision."

Sonoma Pines has undergone conscientious growth since its inception in 2004. Over 225 Santa Fe style homes and townhomes enjoy the convenience of living on a golf course and directly behind Governor's Landing, one of several new retail centre's of the Westside's expanding shopping district.  "This is a one door, one floor concept," explains Block.
It includes many lifestyle enhancements not seen before in the Okanagan Valley.

With amazing views of Okanagan Lake and the city of Kelowna from its rooftop pool and outdoor theatre, InVue offers buyers an unparalleled resort lifestyle with urban conveniences such as fitness centre, yoga studio, guest suites and onsite dog wash. InVue has commercial retail space and luxury condominiums in a prime location close to shopping, walking and bicycle trails.

InVue is the most iconic building being built in Kelowna and soon it will become an architectural landmark in the Okanagan, says Adrian Block, president and CEO of The Rykon Group.

"We've worked and reworked this proposal to ensure we're not only making sound business decisions but, most importantly, responsible ones," said Adrian Block, president and founder of The Rykon Group, the developer of Manteo Resort. "We have an amazing piece of real estate and take our stewardship of the land seriously and applaud city council for their collaboration to ensure a win-win for everyone." The existing 44-unit Lakeshore Inn will operate this summer while pre-sales start in June for the 18 townhouses - in phases of 11 and seven units. Specific details on the first phase will be announced late April. "We need to get a certain number of pre-sales to proceed, and assuming we get that, we'll begin with the demolition in September. It could be as early as July 2014 for delivery," said Block. After the 1996 timeshare program expires in 2019, "everything on the south side of Manteo is demolished in order to make Phase 2 and 3 happen," said Block. The 12-storey 69-unit hotel and 10-storey 77-unit apartment/hotel would be a combination of luxury hotel rooms and vacation condos. "A good portion of it will not be for sale because we'll maintain that as part of our inventory for nightly rentals. And then a portion of it will be sold and those will have private owners and they use it as they wish," said Block. Manteo sold its request for the increase in building height by promising to dedicate a 12-metre strip of lakeshore, which would complete a public walkway from Rotary Beach to the mouth of Mission Creek. "It's a great compromise for both us and the city. The general public are getting a great benefit with the land, the lakefront path that is part of this transaction. Though we don't gain anything in terms of density, what we gain is a building form that makes the resort effective," said Block.

Adrian Block, president of Rykon Group, says that "InVue's design was driven by the notion of a cruise ship. All of us have a desire to live a resort lifestyle, and one of our original partners is a boating enthusiast."
Rykon has a diverse portfolio of projects throughout the Okanagan, including the well-regarded Manteo Resort in Kelowna's Mission neighbourhood and South Bay, a gated waterfront community of seven-figure homes that's proven popular with Albertans.
"We like to do creative, fun projects that are at the leading edge in the marketplace," says Block.
Block says that "the longer-range planning for this area will certainly include greater densification in an effort to create a vibrant neighbourhood.
Adrian Block says that right now, InVue is attracting two group of buyers, most of whom already live in Kelowna.
