Kelowna-based property developer Highstreet Ventures, and Guelph-based property manager Skyline Living, recently celebrated the grand opening of their new Vernon property, Creekview Heights Apartments.
Developed by Highstreet and managed by Skyline, the three-building, 216-suite luxury B.C. rental complex was completed in June 2020.
To commemorate the grand opening of the new Vernon property and give back to the community, Highstreet and Skyline have jointly donated $20,000 to the local shelter, Archway Society for Domestic Peace.
“Highstreet is dedicated to creating a positive impact in the communities that we build in,” said Christina Wilson, Vice President of Development and Sales at Highstreet. “This year has had a tremendous effect on everyone’s living situation, which is why we selected the Archway Society for this donation.”
“Skyline Living is committed to building strong, caring, and vibrant communities, and to working with companies who share that vision,” said BJ Santavy, Vice President, Skyline Living. “Highstreet and Skyline Living have previously partnered on several residential developments in Western Canada. We are pleased to have joined with Highstreet in contributing to Archway Society, which plays such an important role for children and families in Vernon.”
Like many non-profit and community organizations across the country, Archway Society has seen its fair share of challenges due to COVID-19.
“We were thrilled and honoured to receive the generous donation from Highstreet and Skyline Living, and it was truly serendipitous as the funds could not have come at a better time,” said Sherry Demetrick, Co-Executive Director at Archway Society. “Domestic violence has been at epidemic levels for years, but since the arrival of COVID-19, we’ve seen increased needs for our services.”
