The City of Kelowna has received a proposal for a pair of six-storey, mixed-use buildings in Kelowna’s McKinley Beach neighbourhood.

Calgary’s Davignon Martin Architecture this week submitted a development permit application for the two buildings, which would consist of commercial space and 120 residential units. The development is planned for 1830 Hilltop Cres.

“With great proximity to future retail and active shopping areas, as well as great access to natural recreation areas, the intent is to provide easier access to market, favouring more accessible, larger sized units mixed with single-storey and larger 3-bedroom units,” the application states.

“Units were placed on-site strategically, according to their size to complement an affordability strategy that would marry with the site. Units are larger along the Okanagan Lake views and higher levels, and smaller and more affordable on main roads or internal amenity spaces.”

The building to the west would be the bigger of the two, featuring 79 units, while the second one, to the east, would consist of 41 units.
