Hearing for Peachland dev.
Trevor Nichols - May 23, 2017 - Biz Releases

One of the most significant developments proposed for downtown Peachland in the last decade will soon head to a public hearing.

PeachTree Village, a five-storey building that would feature a mix of residential and commercial space, would also extend commercial development past 4th Street, connecting the town’s commercial area with the proposed senior’s building at 6th Street.

The development would include several retail shops on the main floor, office space on the second floor, and 10-12 large family units on the higher floors.

CityStateConsulting Services, the developer behind the project, is anticipating a public hearing in the next couple of weeks.

At it, Peachland residents will be able to weigh in on the proposed development, and express any concerns to Peachland council.

According to District of Peachland staff, CityState’s proposal is “entirely consistent with the intent of the Beach Avenue and Sustainable Downtown plans,” however, the company is asking for council to approve several variances to make the project possible.

It is asking for 10 per cent less amenity space than is required, something it says will be offset by larger-than-required balconies for residents.

It’s also asking to provide a pull-out on Waldo Way rather than a loading bay inside the building, and reduced setbacks on the sides of the property.
