The City of Revelstoke’s advisory planning commission (APC) will have the first look at two major new proposed developments, including a hotel at Revelstoke Mountain Resort and a new mixed commercial and residential phase at the Mackenzie Village development. The APC reviews proposals for things like form and character, and it’s often the first public preview of upcoming development.

The first is a proposal to begin construction on phases 2 and 3 of the Mackenzie Village Development. A report to the APC states the proposal includes four separate four-storey buildings. Each building includes a ground-floor commercial space and three stories of apartments.

The proposed development includes a request for a land-use change and a zoning amendment to increase the maximum floor space for individual commercial units from 200 square meters to 350 square meters and an amendment to permit a fourth-storey on the apartment buildings without providing underground parking.

The second development permit application the APC will consider is a hotel at Revelstoke Mountain Resort. The proposed multi-storey, 158 room hotel will include conference, retail and guest amenities and two stories of semi-underground parking. Proposed facilities include offices, storage areas and a spa,hot tub,sauna and gym. Portions of the proposed building will be as high as eight stories.

In a report, city planner Daniel Sturgeon said that while the zoning for the proposed hotel location at 2955 Camozzi Road does permit a maximum of eight stories it does not provide a specific numeric upper limit on height.

The proposed developments are scheduled for discussion at the upcoming advisory planning commission meeting scheduled for Wednesday, Sept. 12.
