Ramada Inn proposed for Revelstoke

A hotel and restaurant proposal has come for the Revelstoke Crossing property off the Trans-Canada Highway.

A hotel and restaurant proposal has come for the Revelstoke Crossing property off the Trans-Canada Highway.

Horizon North and Canwest Ltd. have applied for a development permit to build an 85-room, four storey Ramada Inn on the property, which is located off the Trans-Canada Highway.

The plan also calls for a restaurant to be built on the property at some point in the future, though the application at this point is only for the hotel.

The property is zoned for hotels use.

The proposed hotel development would make a positive contribution to the aesthetics of the highway corridor and fits with the form and character of area development,” says a staff report by Dean Strachan, the City of Revelstoke’s manager of development services. “The proposed development meets the regulations of both the Official Community Plan and zoning bylaw.”

According to the plans, the 1,478-square-metre hotel would include a pool and water slide, a patio at the rear, and 102 parking spaces.

The proposal comes from Horizon North, a Calgary-based construction company that specializes in camp accommodations for resource companies; and Canwest Ltd.

It is the same property that was targeted for a shopping mall development last year. The mall was rejected and many people called for a hotel to be developed on the site.

It is the second major hotel proposal for Revelstoke this year. The Revelstoke Land & Development Company is planning to build a 5.5-storey, 68-room hotel in the Farwell neighbourhood.

As well, developer David Evans has been planning a hotel development for lands next to Revelstoke Mountain Resort for several years.

Council will discuss the application on Tuesday, Sept. 13.
