KAMLOOPS - Juniper residents in Kamloops can expect some new neighbours next fall.

Juniper West Developments received city council's approval this week to develop 50 new townhouse units at 1871 and 1901 Qu'Appelle Boulevard. Juniper West general manager Doug MacKenzie says construction is expected to beging in the spring, and the first units should be on the market by late fall of 2019.

The units are expected to have two parking spaces and street parking. A development variance permit has approved a covered canopy feature and partitions between the units.

Transit routes will be expanded as well as snow clearing routes. There is an emergency access that connects to Rose Hill Road that has been established for the fire department, while other access routes are in the preliminary planning stages at this point.

Assistant director of Development and Engineering Services David Freeman says there is room for more development in the neighbourhood.

"[There are] maybe about another couple hundred units that could be done on the zoned lands. This would include multi-family and single family units, but the majority of what has been zoned out has just about been developed in Juniper West," Freeman told city council on Tuesday, Dec. 4.
