Glenmore townhouse complex will get initial consideration this week

A rezoning application proposing a new townhouse complex on Highland Drive will be receiving initial consideration from city council this week.

Innocept Developments, a Kelowna-based developer, submitted a rezoning proposal in mid-May.

The application is looking to rezone 1508 Highland Drive North from the MF1 - Infill Housing zone to MF2 - Townhouse Housing zone.

Although city council will only be considering land use on Monday, a development permit application was submitted at the end of June.

It showed plans for 19 townhouses that would be built in four three-storey buildings. Most of the units would be three-bedrooms.

City planning staff are recommending support for the proposal.

“The proposal aligns with the OCP Policy for the Core Area to encourage a diverse mix of low and medium density housing,” says a staff report.

Staff say the proposed rezoning aligns with the future land use for the property.

They say the proposed townhouse complex would benefit from nearby transit, the Okanagan Rail Trail and several nearby parks.

Kelowna council will be asked to support the application during the afternoon meeting on July 8.
