Downtown Penticton rental apartment goes to public feedback

The 3-storey Ellis Street building would add 16 residential units to the city

The public can provide feedback on a new three-storey 16-unit apartment building on Ellis Street.

The city is hosting two information sessions regarding the required Official Community Plan and zoning bylaw amendments for the development online July 21 and in person July 23.

The project, if approved, would add 11 one-bedroom units and five 2-bedroom units to Penticton’s rental inventory.

“This development proposal would add new apartment units close to the downtown core of the city,” said Audrey Tanguay, planning and licensing manager. “We look forward to hearing the feedback from residents on this new development proposal for the property.”
