Hearing for resort condos

The public hearing for a condo development at the old cannery property in Summerland’s Lower Town takes place place Tuesday.

The Lakeshore Drive development — anchored by two six-storey residential terraced towers featuring swimming pools on the patio of each unit — will be put before the public prior to being considered for final approval by council.

The project will also include a separate building fronting Lakeshore Drive that consists of 11-units of ground floor commercial and eight “resort condos” above.

As of Thursday afternoon, the city had received just pieces of correspondence on the development. One from a nearby resident that believes the condo towers are a tad too tall and another from the next-door Lakeshore Racquets Centre.

“As a not-for-profit society... operating on leased crown land, we have limited opportunity and funds to make property improvements and to sustain the increased usage of our lands that will result with a residential/resort built next door,” the Summerland Recreation Society said in a letter, suggesting having the developer pitch-in for improvements to their parking lot, landscaping, the shoreline or the facility as a whole.

Councillors have appeared impressed with the proposed development at previous meetings. The 24-units units in the terraced buildings will be between 1,650 and 1,800 sq. feet, with penthouses of 2,500 sq. feet.

The public hearing takes place Tuesday at 6 p.m. in council chambers.
