Proposed apartment building in Aberdeen will go to public hearing

In 2019, council approved the original application for a six-storey, 99-unit hotel — intended to be a Four Points by Sheraton — but the applicant, Ron Mundi, has since revised plans.

Kamloops council has approved moving to public hearing a proposal for an apartment building next to the Coast Kamloops Hotel and Conference Centre in Aberdeen — a proposal that was originally for another hotel.

In 2019, council approved the original application for a six-storey, 99-unit hotel — intended to be a Four Points by Sheraton — but the applicant, Ron Mundi, has since revised plans.

He instead wishes to build a six-storey, 104-unit apartment building on the Rogers Way site, which is currently overflow parking for the Coast Hotel.

On Tuesday (July 20), council voted to approve the first two readings of the rezoning application and to send the matter to a public hearing.

The building would contain 35 two-bedroom units, 63 one-bedroom units, and six studio units and would be sold at market value.

Mundi plans to subdivide the property so the apartment building is separate from the hotel.

Between the two buildings, 495 parking spaces would be in place — 150 for the apartment building, in an underground parkade, and 345 surface parking spaces for the existing hotel and conference centre. To facilitate the development, 59 surface lots on the apartment property would be earmarked for the hotel. The L-shaped building would also include 33 bicycle stalls.

The project also includes a variance to increase the maximum permitted building height, to six storeys from four storeys.
