A boutique treehouse hotel development is moving to the next stage after an annexation request was approved by the province.

The provincial cabinet approved the request by David and Shelley Evans to have an 18-acre property at the base of Revelstoke Mountain Resort annexed to the city on December 17.

Now, the Evanses are working on putting a re-zoning package together for the city in order to move forward on the hotel development.

“I hope to have the package together, concept and the initial documents back to them by the end of this month, early next month,” David Evans told the Review, adding that they’ll be working on more detailed reports, like an infrastructure study, while things progress.

“If we do an open house, we’ll have documents ready,” he said.

The annexation approval took nearly two years and was met with opposition by the resort, who called the hotel proposal a “parasitic development.”

Evans confirmed they still planning on building a treehouse-style boutique hotel (http://www.revelstokereview.com/news/254457011.html) on the property, which is located on Camozzi Road, just south of RMR.

“The idea of the unit is that they would be built off of a elevated platform around the trees using the gradient of the land,” he said. “We would use different methods to elevate it to give you that feeling of being in the trees.”
