Second Builder appointed for new homes at Gallagher's Canyon!
In late October, Gallagher's Canyon Development Company announced that a second builder, K West Homes had been appointed to build new homes at Gallagher's Canyon. K West is a respected Kelowna builder who has built over 1,000 homes in several developments in the Central Okanagan.
K West's mandate is to build "Ready Built" homes, to be available for sale to buyers who don't want to go through the time and process of building a custom home at Gallagher's Canyon. For those who prefer to build a home to their own specifications, the only approved builder will still be Gallagher's Canyon Ventures Ltd., a division of Fawdry Homes. Each builder will have their own defined niche as an approved builder at Gallagher's Canyon.
K West Homes has purchased a number of lots at Gallagher's and has prepared plans and applied for permits to start building 8 homes in the Fairway 15 neighbourhood. These homes will all be built conforming to the building schemes in place for Gallagher's and according to the same approvals process required for all Gallagher's Homes. The standard specification K West will be building to is at a very high standard and the homes will fit in well with and enhance the neighbourhoods in which they will be built. There is a long list of standard features that is well beyond the previous Gallagher's standards.
These homes will be started almost immediately and are planned to be available for occupancy in the spring of 2013. These are not show homes, as all will be available for purchase immediately and additional homes will be started as existing homes are sold. In addition to the standard features, early buyers will also be able to add custom touches of their own.
In general the response from the residents of Gallagher's Canyon, especially those living on the south side has been positive, for the following reasons:
- The number of empty lots on the south side will be reduced, making the area more attractive both to residents and future buyers at Gallagher's Canyon.
- K West has committed to building a very high quality home as a standard specification, so their homes should contribute to the overall quality, look and feel of Gallagher's homes and Gallagher's neighbourhoods.
- The number of vacant lots for sale has been reduced significantly, giving better opportunity to those who still wish to sell their lots to find buyers for their property.
- The increased activity at Gallagher's will be viewed positively by buyers and potential buyers of Gallagher's homes and properties. The "buzz" created by the additional interest Gallagher's Canyon receives will help propel this beautiful community to its completion.
Already the buzz has resulted in inquiries from buyers for lots, especially those in the Fairway 15 neighbourhood which, as the last neighbourhood completed, has a slightly different building scheme than other neighbourhoods in Gallagher's, although the requirement for home construction still maintains the same standards.
