Capri Landmark Urban Centre Plan

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Consultation has concluded

The Capri-Landmark neighbourhood (the area between Gordon and Spall, and Highway 97 and Springfield) is one of Kelowna’s major employment hubs and is growing to be an attractive location for apartment living. Development interest in the area is high, so we're for the future of the area.

On April 1, 2019, Council endorsed the Capri-Landmark Urban Centre Plan, which will guide redevelopment in the area over the next 20 years and beyond.

Background

Capri-Landmark was prioritized as the City’s first area needing a detailed urban centre plan for two key reasons: growing development pressure and infrastructure challenges resulting from a fragmented street network, discontinuous sidewalks and limited parks spaces in the Landmark District. The detailed strategy will guide redevelopment over the next 20 years and beyond, including the locations of parks and public spaces, development standards, and transportation solutions.

The Capri-Landmark Urban Centre Plan is a big step toward creating a successful urban centre that delivers a high quality of life for current and future residents and employees in the area.

Concept plan

The preferred concept was developed with community input and technical analysis to address future growth, how people will get around, and where future residents and workers will have access to parks and public space.

    As a resident in the Landmark community, I have seen a great influx in the amount of vehicles and people using this area over the last 10 years as the Landmark towers continue to expand and draw more businesses. As things are, this area has not developed structurally to cater to the needs of this growing population (including traffic flow, proper sidewalks and pedestrian friendly areas such as parks). I am grateful that the city has decided to start developing this area, however, I am concerned that the traffic and pedestrian issues will continue to get worse if these areas are not addressed before more condo buildings and businesses are built.

    Thank you for your post. Absolutely, you are correct in your assessment that this area has some significant deficits in terms of the infrastructure that you referenced in your post.

    A big part of the Capri-Landmark Plan is to identify key infrastructure that will be needed to support the future growth in the area. Some of the main ideas proposed by the Plan include the realignment of Sutherland Ave, a new neighbourhood park in Landmark, increased sidewalks and bike lanes. Much of this infrastructure will be implemented as redevelopment occurs in the area. Also, by allowing more people to live in the area it will also encourage more local trips.

    What are the plans for the park on Sutherland (across from the Rykon building)? My condo overlooks that park and it seems like they are taking down a lot of trees . . .

    Hi,

    I think what you are seeing is some of the work that is being done to improve the flow of water in Mill Creek, which is part of the City's efforts to limit any flooding impacts along the Mill Creek Corridor. The link below has more information.

    Concept 1 requires better cycling paths & pedestrian walkways!

    Hi, thanks for taking the time to review and respond. Are there any key destinations specifically that you would like to see the cycling paths and pedestrian walkways connect to in Concept 1?
