Kelowna-based Urban Options Planning Corp. has submitted a rezoning request for a townhouse project that would be located in Nickel Road.
The application is requesting that the properties at 215 and 235 Nickel Road be rezoned from large and medium lot housing to the MF2 – Townhouse zone.
To accommodate the development, the two lots would be consolidated into one.
“The intention of this proposal is to create a townhouse development in an upcoming area of Kelowna which is very walkable, bikeable, and has access to nearby amenities,” the applicant’s letter of intent reads.
“This proposal is anticipated to provide missing-middle housing at a time where the local housing market has been identified as unaffordable and short of supply.”
The plans call for two three-storey townhomes with 12 units in total.
According to those plans, there would be one two-bedroom, four four-bedrooms and seven three-bedroom units.
A total of 23 parking spots would be provided in private garages. There would also be two visitor parking stalls and four spaces for bikes.
Most of the units would have two parking stalls in the garage, however, five of the units would have only one spot. The applicant says those units would be suitable for tenants who use other forms of transportation.
Each unit would have their own balcony, patio and yard space. A public terrace would be provided on the south side of the property.
The application was submitted on Jan. 20 and has since been circulated around city hall.
Staff in the city’s planning department may require additional information on this proposal before giving it further consideration.
