A new development for downtown Peachland is still in the proposal stage but pictures of it drew a positive response Thursday.
TNI Property Management unveiled concept drawings of a new development that could replace the existing Edgewater Inn (Water’s Edge) and Aegean Buildings.
At just under 40,000 sq. ft. in size, the three storey structure would feature retail stores on the street level floor, office space on the second floor and residential on the top floor.
The TNI group of companies currently houses its employees in four separate buildings in downtown Peachland and they would be consolidated into the second floor of the the new building, if it is built.
The crowd in the first 90 minutes of an open house Thursday afternoon was mostly made up of TNI employees, town employees and council members. Only a handful of residents showed up to see the proposal.
Lots of positive comments were made about the proposal.
