Consultation has concluded

A conceptual rendering of the proposed mixed-use development at 1704 Government Street.

UPDATE: Feedback for this engagement project is now closed. Results are available in the Documents section and were shared with Council the Regular meeting of September 12, 2023.


The City has received an application to build a mixed-use development at 1704 Government Street. Located across the street from the Penticton Regional Hospital, the draft plan proposes high density residential development, with the potential for 1,200-1,500 apartments, along with retail and office space. Preliminary plans show eleven buildings between 6 and 12 storeys in height.

The proposal would require an amendment to the City’s Official Community Plan to change the future land use designation on the property from "Industrial" to "Mixed Use". A site-specific policy would be required to allow 12 storeys in that designation.

Before the application is considered by City Council, the City would like to understand whether or not residents are open to changing the future land use of this property.
