A handful of notable developments will have the opportunity to take steps forward on Monday when Kelowna city council gathers for its weekly meeting.

A pair of new projects will be on the docket, and both are proposed to go up in Rutland.

The first is a 4 1/2-storey, 24-unit apartment complex on Hein Road, just north of Houghton Road. The building would also include a combination of parkade and surface parking. The property currently has a duplex on it that would have to be demolished.

The second proposal is for a nine-unit townhouse development located at 210 Kneller Rd. The property is currently zoned as large-lot housing but will have to be changed to low-density multiple housing. The townhouses would be three storeys high with attached double car garages, and each would have a private, at-grade rear patio and green space along with a rooftop patio.

Meanwhile, the project at 4609 Lakeshore Rd. that has been in the works for a couple years is applying for a development permit. A dozen three-bedroom townhouse units have been proposed, each featuring double garages and rooftop garden spaces. They are being kept at two-storey height “to be sensitive to the average heights” in the neighbourhood.
