3 Amenities Renters Look for in a Kamloops Apartment Rental

If you’ve ever looked for a Kamloops apartment rental, you know that finding an apartment can be a series of compromises. First, you may have to compromise on location if you can’t find something available, or something you like in the location you desire. This happens all too often because new apartment rentals are rare in the Kamloops area.

Next, you may find the right location, but have to compromise on the quality of the apartment. Too often, if the location is good, the apartment and/or its amenities are not.

Finally, you might find an apartment with decent amenities, but in a neighbourhood that doesn’t suit your lifestyle.

McGill Ridge Apartments has it all: great location and modern apartment amenities in a neighbourhood suitable to the lifestyles of most renters.


Located in the Southwest Business District, McGill Ridge is literally a stone’s throw from Thompson Rivers University. While our Kamloops apartments are perfect for TRU students, our central location is also attractive to people working in the Southwest Business District or Sahali. For renters who want to live in a growing, diverse neighbourhood with nearby shops and services, as well as recreation and health and fitness opportunities, McGill Ridge is the perfect choice. Our buildings are very close to transportation (there’s a bus stop right out front) and because we’re located within minutes of the main streets, you will also have easy access to the rest of Kamloops or the Trans-Canada highway when you want to get away for a day trip or the weekend.

Modern Apartment Amenities

It’s difficult to find a Kamloops apartment rental that has modern building and suite amenities, such as state-of-the-art-security, storage, space-saving design, modern appliances and appointments like plank flooring and in-suite washer-dryer. We know this, because we’ve recently built the only new apartment developments in Kamloops that have been built within the past 25 years: McGill Ridge Apartments (2019/2020) and Summit Village Residences (2014).

While Kamloops rental vacancy rates are on the rise, there is still a huge demand for rentals in newer buildings, and therefore a lot of competition from other renters. When we designed McGill Ridge, we tried to strike a balance between giving tenants what they want and maintaining competitive rental pricing.

If you like to stay close to home and would like easy access to shopping, entertainment, parks, health and fitness opportunities right in your neighbourhood, you’ll love our Kamloops apartments. With plenty of neighbourhood amenities, you don’t have to drive to another part of Kamloops to support your lifestyle. Our central location means that within 5 minutes of your apartment you can do banking, clothes and grocery shopping, work out at one of many fitness centres, dine out at a nearby restaurant, or go for a bike ride or hike in one of several parks. If you love watching or participating in sporting events at world-class venues, we’re located seconds from the Tournament Capital Centre, Canada Games Aquatic Centre and Hillside Stadium.

We like to say that McGill Ridge is “5 Minutes to Everywhere”.
