More than 300 condos and apartments are planned for the hillside on the north end of Dilworth Mountain in Kelowna that, if approved, will extend McCurdy Road across Mill Creek and up the hillside.

Kelowna’s Troika Management Corporation has partnered with property owners ProDev GP Ltd. and 2137259 Alberta Ltd. and applied to the City of Kelowna for rezoning.

“Our current development plans make a tremendous effort to minimize the impact to the environment by dedicating the majority of the property to parkland,” states a letter to the City from Rich Threlfall, vice-president of development for Troika.

It will include open space for hiking trails and a Mill Creek restoration and protection plan.

McCurdy Road, which currently ends near Mill Creek, would be extended to join Mt Baldy Drive, on the north end of the Dilworth Mountain subdivision.

“It will help ease traffic congestion on Highway 97 by providing an alternate route to Dilworth and Glenmore (Roads),” Threlfall wrote. “The McCurdy extension is routed in a manner that best respects the wetlands in the area as well as eliminates unnecessary hillside scarring, erosion and protects the agricultural land.”

The City says the plan calls for 266 condominiums and 43 townhouses.

B.C. Assessment lists the property, at 2755 McCurdy Road, as 62.8 acres and valued it at $3.5 million as of July 2019.
