KELOWNA - An affordable housing project could replace a building used to help Kelowna residents with disabilities since the 1950s.

The City of Kelowna has leased land on Fuller Avenue near Bertram Street to the Pathways Abilities Society (originally the Sunnyvale Centre) since about 1953. It’s most recent use was as a bicycle repair shop called BikeWays.

In 2017, Pathways bought its own building at 1216 St. Paul St. and has moved BikeWays to that location.

According to its website, Pathways got approval in 2017 from B.C. Housing to build a 68-unit affordable housing complex with the City of Kelowna retaining ownership of the land.

The application for that rezoning and the construction of a six-storey apartment building will go before Kelowna city council at it's meeting on Monday, Dec. 3.
