The building is equipped with smart technology, including View Smart Window technology that tints the windows based on the sun's position.

Jack B about Landmark 7, Bertram Bernard Block and UBCO Offices

Jan 13, 2024

The building is 40% occupied and on target to be at 70% by the end of 2024. There is a new article about the office space in Kelowna, especially the new Landmark 7 and The Block office towers. Talking about the slow market that prompts cancellation of office development near future UBCO tower by Mission Group. But the overall outlook by both companies for the future is positive.
