Your new life awaits at Eminence, a vibrant, recreation-centric community situated on the southern slope of Kelowna’s iconic Knox Mountain just minutes from downtown. Whether you’re seeking a forever home or a savvy investment in Canada’s fastest-growing city, Eminence has it all – an idyllic mountainside setting with endless nature trails and panoramic views, immediate access to Kelowna’s bustling city centre, and a host of amenities that encourage community connections and personal wellbeing.
The striking natural backdrop of Knox is the inspiration for Eminence’s upscale, modern mountain architecture and prominent streetscape, working in harmony with the prestigious, well-established neighbouring communities, Highpoint and Magic Estates. Warm wood elements juxtapose exposed cement paneling, bold black detailing, glass balconies and rooftop patios that showcase Eminence’s sweeping mountain, valley, and city views.

Eminence’s many health and wellness offerings are anchored by the Lodge, a resident-exclusive club whose mountainside deck, outdoor pool and hot tub are perfectly placed to attract the Kelowna sunshine. Harvest tables, fireside seating and lawn games encourage community gathering, while barbecues and outdoor kitchenettes provide an idyllic atmosphere for socializing. The Lodge is crowned by an eco-friendly green roof, which supports resident wellness by absorbing pollutants, improving air quality and supporting wildlife habitats. Plus, entertaining is an option year-round with the Lodge’s plush indoor space, featuring a kitchenette, bar games, and fireside lounge.
Residents eager to break a sweat have access to the Lodge’s fully equipped fitness centre, complete with a zen-inducing yoga zone. The property also has a dedicated bike tune-up station and an enclosed Bark Park, where furry friends can play, wrestle and live their best lives.
