How High Can We Build in Kelowna?
To increase the amount of rental housing on the market, The City of Kelowna is considering a new density bonusing scheme that would let developers build higher towers in exchange for payments to a city coffer (April 2022). The Public Amenity and Streetscape Reserve Fund aims to direct public funding towards ground-level public amenities like sidewalks, curbs, landscaping, bus pullouts, and street furniture.
