Details about Westcorp’s second phase on the huge development at the Hiawatha RV Park and Mobile Home Park have been released, a report said.
Recently, the company submitted a request to the City of Kelowna regarding a parkade as well as three towers. The application will be reviewed by the City Council in the fall.
The proposed parkade will stand four stories high and have a total of 1,218 stalls. There will also be green space on the fourth floor. The development will also have a roundabout on Lakeshore Road that will serve as an entry and exit point.
The first tower will rise 18 stories tall and contain 130 units. These units will range from studios to two-bedroom apartments. The second tower will contain 158 apartments units and the third tower will include 143 units.
This second phase is part of a larger redevelopment of Hiawatha’s RV and Mobile Home Park. The area will be developed into a rental property with 1100 units and retail.
The first phase, which consisted of 200 townhomes with two- or three-bedrooms, was constructed in June. Westcorp expects occupancy to start next spring.
After Hiawatha residents opposed the plan when it was first approved by the council in 2013, the application is now being considered.
The Edmonton-based developer bought the mobile home community in 2007 and was approved for large condo developments in 2013. Hiawatha residents opposed the proposal of development.
Council approved a development permit for the now-under-construction first phase on the site last December.
