KELOWNA - The development proposal for six storey commercial and residential project in the Mission will have its final appearance before Kelowna city council in two weeks.

The Shore development on Lakeshore and Swordy Road across from Boyce-Gyro Beach Park includes retail space on the main floor, a two storey office-oriented space and 83 rental units. The 105,000 square foot proposal includes a public courtyard in the centre of the site.

There are two variances council will have to consider at its meeting on Tuesday, March 21, in order for the project to move forward.

One is a parking reduction to bring the number of stalls down from 145 to 144. The other variance is to increase the building height from the maximum allotted 15 metres, or four storeys, to 21 metres or six storeys.

A rezoning application for an additional 67 stall parking lot at 700 Swordy Rd. for the development came before council for its first reading on Monday, March 6. 

Council first received the application for the developement on July 4, 2016 and a public hearing was held Oct. 4, 2016.
