Kelowna council to consider Harvey/Burtch redevelopment plan

A major redevelopment of property next to Parkinson Recreation Centre goes before city council Monday (July 8).

A staff proposal shows seven buildings, including towers ranging from six to 26 stories, which are part of the Burtch/Harvey Area Redevelopment Plan.

“The site could accommodate between 1,600 and 1,700 residential units with approximately 2,000 square metres of office space and 3,000 sq. m of commercial/retail space,” the staff report reads.

There is a transition from taller buildings along Harvey Ave to lower structures toward the existing multi-family buildings along Burtch Rd.

The report notes the project aligns with council priorities including affordable housing, transportation, and climate and the environment.

Public engagement on the development, conducted earlier this year, found support for green spaces, gathering places and reduced building heights along Burtch Road.

Concerns ranged from the loss of Global Fitness, building heights and insufficient parking.
