If all goes well, the Society of Hope envisions breaking ground on Pleasantvale 2 in the spring or summer of next year.
On Monday, the Central Okanagan housing society officially distributed plans for the project to city hall.
This is the first major step for the proposed development since the non-profit society was selected by BC Housing to construct Pleasantvale 2 earlier this year.
The proposal before the city includes 27 two and three bedroom family townhomes and 48 one and two bedroom units for seniors within a four-story apartment.
It will front Cambridge and Central avenues and Kingsway in Kelowna's north end, next to the first Pleasantvale project.
"I'm really pleased with the look of the new building, I'm really pleased with the look of the new townhomes," said Society of Hope executive director Luke Stack.
"I think it's going to be a great addition to that neighborhood. I think there was a little concern in the neighborhood of what it might be, but when it was presented as apartments for seniors and townhomes for families, they all sort of went, all good."
Stack says the design differs a bit from the first Pleasantvale project. He says they tried to model the design somewhat after world renowned American architect Frank Lloyd Wright.
More public consultations are expected to take place in September before the rezoning application comes before council, possibly as early as the fall.
