A developer wants to start building a commercial centre in the Black Mountain area of Kelowna.

The City’s Official Community Plan calls for a 23.6-acre commercial centre for that neighbourhood. New Town Architecture and Engineering says in its submission to the City only six acres of commercial are needed between now and 2040.

Its applications start off with a proposal to develop the Loseth Centre, a small shopping centre on about 2.4 acres on the southwest corner of Loseth Road and Highway 33. It would include almost 27,000 square feet of commercial and retail space with a “medium-scaled” grocery store as an anchor in a building reaching up to four storeys.

Further commercial development is expected to come sometime in the future.

The submissions include a 50-space daycare, seniors assisted living facility and three residential buildings with 135 units reaching five stories.

There are a number of rezoning, development permit and development variance permit applications that have been submitted to the City recently. It will take several weeks for them to proceed to city council.
