KAMLOOPS - Another residential project is being planned for near Kamloops’s rivershore.
A two-building development is proposed at 562 Lorne St., beside the Station Plaza development, city development manager Rod Martin says.
“They’re calling it the Marquess of Lorne,” he says.
Tri-Amm Development has submitted applications to the city for rezoning and development permits for the site, with plans to build two, six-storey buildings. It would contain 70 residential units with 828 square meters of commercial space on the ground floor.
The development fits in well with the Official Community Plan and the move make Kamloops downtown and North Shore more dense.
“That’s the type of development we encourage right now,” he says.
Other development plans currently moving forward include a development at Second Avenue and Battle Street and another at Third Avenue and St. Paul. There’s also the university neighbourhood currently looking at big developments right now, with the Reach recently announced and another multi-building project across the road.
The application is currently with city administration. It still needs to go through city council and a public hearing before ground can be broken.
