The project looks at remediating the old CN Rail Yards that came at a crossroad between downtown Kelowna and the old Brandt Creek. The developers aimed to reinvigorate the area by restoring the small creek and creating an iconic neighbourhood that would strive to remediate the landscape of the former industrial train site.
Today the Brandt Creek Crossing neighbourhood is one of the most iconic communities in Kelowna and has been one of the stepping stones in brownfield redevelopment (CMHC, 2006).
