A sustainable housing developer is asking to build a 30-unit apartment building on what is now a residential property in Kelowna.

Anagram Properties Inc. has asked the City of Kelowna for a zoning change at 1145 Pacific Ave., bringing it from the two-dwelling housing designation to high-density, multiple housing.

The half-acre property is located just south of the Capri Centre, which is set to undergo a massive densification over the next 30 years.

According to Anagram’s proposal, the building will have five levels, with the ground floor reserved for parking, and the top four levels containing residential units.

In total, the apartment building will feature six one-bedroom units, 19 two-bedroom units, and five three-bedroom units.

In its application to the city, Anagram asks to construct the building higher and bigger than the zoning allows, as well as change the required side and rear setbacks.

The city has just accepted the application, and council will have a chance to weigh in on it at its Jan. 9 meeting.

On its website, Anagram Properties Inc. says its mission is to build homes “with a passion for using the latest green building technologies that save money and create a significant positive environmental impact.”
