In May 2021, The SolAqua Townhomes Project Team, represented by the landowner Landstar Developments and their Project Lead Consultant, CTQ Consultants, hosted three Virtual Public Information Sessions over the online Zoom Platform to review the updated proposal, and respond to public constructive feedback.
The updated proposal responded to previous feedback community feedback outlined below, and now more closely reflects the form of character more conducive to the West Kelowna and Casa Loma context.
|Concern||Previous Proposal||Current Proposal||Discussion|
|Height||10 stories||2-3 stories||The project now reflects a form and character more compatible with the neighborhood within West Kelowna and Adjacent to Westbank First Nations Land|
|Number of Units||550 residential units||45-60 residential units||The decrease in the total residential build out will address concern for massing, traffic, emergency access/egress, sensitivity to hillside and duration of construction|
|Fit with Area Context||Considered too dense and objected to high rise form||Duplex Townhouse form||Design and layout of the strata development along an internal lane allows for an efficient use of the land|
|Aesthetics||Concern for impact with height and density||Quality design and finishes for the townhomes||Project will allow for a diversity of townhouse design within the context of a comprehensively planned neighbourhood|
