A decision on a downtown Kelowna development, which could become an icon in the city skyline, has been put off, again.

The proposed Monaco towers would be two high rises: a hotel and a residential building -- 22 and 30 storeys tall, respectively.

This is the second time city council has put off making a decision on the development.

The first time, they sent Premier Pacific Properties back to the drawing board because the buildings were just too big, too tall, and too close together.

The company came back with a revised plan -- but it still violates Kelowna's official community plan.

To understand more, Daybreak host Chris Walker reached Kelowna city councillor Luke Stack.
