A new McDonald’s may soon be coming to Rutland.

A Vancouver real estate company has asked the City of Kelowna for permission to build the restaurant, which development documents indicate will feature a 24-hour drive through.

If the city OKs the application, the new McDonald’s will sit just off Highway 97, at the corner of Old Vernon Road and Rutland Road, next to Kelowna Auction World.

Right now, the powersports repair shop Motortoyz occupies part of the site.

Today, the shop’s owner told Okanagan Edge he’s been asked to leave when his lease expires next year, so the building can be demolished.

Plans for the new McDonald’s submitted to the City of Kelowna show a 410-square-metre building, surrounded by 51 parking stalls, with an all-day drive through.

The application to build the restaurant is still in its early stages, and will require a green light from Kelowna City Council before it moves forward.

There’s no word yet on when that decision will happen.
