The six-storey, 58-unit development planned as part of a reimagining of Clement Avenue will be a purpose-built rental housing project.

Anagram Properties plans to offer “market-quality rental housing” at 10 per cent below market rates, for ten years.

In order to offer a variety of options to renters, the development will include two one-bedroom units, 43 two-bedroom units, seven three-bedroom units, and six four-bedroom units. Included in that are a string of town homes along the bottom.

To make the development happen, Anagram is asking the City of Kelowna for permission to consolidate six properties along Clement Avenue to make room for the apartment building.

It’s also asking for changes to the required setbacks on the property.

In a letter to city council, Anagram says the building has been designed to “incorporate sustainability into project.”

Plans include special parking stalls for car sharing and electric vehicle charging stations, and 184 kilowatts of solar power is being considered for the project, which would connect to the electric vehicle charging as well as provide electricity to the rental units.

To encourage alternative transit, the plans also include a fully enclosed bicycle room, ten shared bicycles for the building tenants, and a bicycle maintenance space.
