Housing development looks to recreate look of old Revelstoke Railway Station

A new development next to the railway tracks hopes to recreate the look of the old Revelstoke railway station.

The old Revelstoke Railway Station was built in 1905 and torn down in 1978.

A new development next to the railway tracks hopes to recreate the look of the old Revelstoke railway station.

Rob and Harry Elliott have applied to re-zone two lots off Mackenzie Avenue, between Track Street and Mulock Street for a multi-family development.

“I’m trying to recreate the old railway station that used to be in Revelstoke and try to re-design it so it can accommodate five or six units,” Rob told the Review. “It was quite a building in its heyday.”

The Elliotts’ application includes two half-acre properties. They are looking to re-zone them to allow for medium-density development, instead of the current single-family zoning.

The re-zoning would allow for row housing and stacked row housing on the lots. The latter means the buildings could be arranged two deep on a lot.

The city’s engineering department said the developers would have to address drainage issues, access issues off Track Street, and build a new fire hydrant to meet fireflow requirements.

Elliott told the Review they were still working on designs and figuring out the price target for the development.

“I’m trying to work out costing. I don’t want to go super high-end,” he said.

The application goes in front of council for first and second reading on Tuesday, June 14. If approved, a public hearing would be scheduled.
