A new townhouse development is proposed for Laurel Road in the Rutland region.
Plans for the 22-unit project were submitted to the city’s planning department earlier this week.
Mundi Construction Ltd. The proposal presented includes five residential buildings made up of triplexes, five and six plexes, as well as “multiple configurations based on their relationship to the topographical environment and the street / gradation”.
“We believe that the proposed townhouse typology takes into account all essential elements of the OCP and is considered to be high quality, but affordable forms of housing in the Kelowna market area,” says the project overview.
“They have become an excellent type of product for meeting mid-to-high-end housing demand, much of which was unavailable in the entire Laurel Road area.”
The proposal is that the overall design of the building and landscaping encourage natural surveillance and not provide “opportunistic hiding places”.
“The site’s social lifestyle will help encourage further surveillance and territorial reinforcement.”
The units are proposed as three-story walk-outs.
The development has to go through different departments in the town hall before it is examined by the council.
