Old Peachland building to get new lease on life

An old building that's become an eye sore when driving through Peachland is getting a face lift. 

The Dragon Lotus Restaurant in Peachland has announced it will be renovating, and relocating to, 6575 Highway 97. 

Located shortly before Antlers Beach when driving down south, the building has been decaying since the Red Lion Family Restaurant closed in 2014. 

In a Facebook post, the Dragon Lotus says it hopes the new location will give them a bigger kitchen with more seating. They will remain at their Beach Avenue location until the end of summer. 

A development permit approved by council last week, shows plans for an expansion on the building with work already beginning this week.
