Kelowna council will decide whether to allow the development of more than 180 units to proceed near Orchard Park Shopping Centre.

A rezoning application to change the land from agricultural to allow for medium density housing will be proposed at council’s next regular meeting, May 16.

“The proposed development will benefit from the central and convenient location of the subject property in close access to many nearby shops, services and amenities in the Midtown Urban Centre,” according to a report prepared by city staff.

The property is located at 2165 Benvoulin Court and is roughly three acres in size. It was once a plant nursery that closed in 2006.

This application proposes two five-storey wood frame buildings, comprised of 187 units. The units include a mix of studio, one, two and three bedroom suites. A combination of surface and underground parking is proposed.

Although the proposal’s applicant did not pursue the Residential Rental Only Tenure subzone, the intention of the building is to have it used as a rental complex, with no plans for stratification, according to the report.
