It was a morning of celebration Friday as the Town of Osoyoos, home builders and — most importantly of all — a young family that took possession of their new home met in the new Meadowlark Place subdivision.
“It’s the first home that people are taking possession of,” said Hart Buckendahl, president of Ellcar Construction.
His company is developing 27 units on 26 lots, including four properties designated for sale under the Town of Osoyoos’ near-market housing program.
“It’s more modern. It’s what you would see in Vancouver and Kelowna,” Mr. Buckendahl said of the unit. “They average about 2,200 to 2,300 sq. ft.”
He added seven of the 27 units have already sold.
Mr. Buckendahl attended with partner Dave Neufeld. Also on site for the ribbon-cutting were Mayor Sue McKortoff and real estate agent Eileen McGinn.
This property now belongs to Mandeep and Karamjit Sandhu, who will be moving in with their two children Sahaj and Muskan and mom Kuldeep.
