Dec 14, 2021 – City of West Kelowna gives second reading to the SolAqua Townhomes Project

Project Updates

On Tuesday, December 14, 2021, the Municipal Council of the City Of West Kelowna passed the following resolution (C381/21):

THAT Council give second reading to City of West Kelowna Official Community Plan Amendment Bylaw No. 0100.62, 2021 (File: Z 20-08); And

THAT Council give second reading to City of West Kelowna Zoning Amendment Bylaw No. 0154.96, 2021 (File: Z 20-08); and

THAT Council give second reading to City of West Kelowna Zoning Amendment Bylaw No. 0154.97, 2021 (File: Z 20-08); and

THAT Council direct staff to schedule the proposed bylaws for Public Hearing

The above bylaws provide the potential for the project to develop up to 60 townhouse units, for up to 60 boat moorage slips to be provided for the town house residents, and vehicular and pedestrian access to the proposed winery and dock through the Agricultural lands.

The above bylaw eliminates the previous proposal which considered a 241 boat slip marina, and parkade on the AG lands.

Project History

The SolAqua Townhouses project has changed in size and scope over the years to better fit West Kelowna’s needs and concerns. The proposed design now includes a maximum of 45-60 multi-family (townhouse) residential units and a pier and moorage facility for 60 boat slips. Final unit counts will be determined at the Development Permit stage.

Previously the design had a much larger impact on the surrounding area, as seen below, but the project has undergone multiple revisions and has since been scaled back significantly.

Previously, the project design had a much larger impact on the surrounding area. The current design, as seen below, has been significantly scaled back from the original development proposal to better suit the site and the community.
