For­mer hospi­tal pur­chased by Cal­gary devel­op­ers

The Drumheller Mail - - FRONT PAGE - Kyle Smylie

Pri­vate devel­op­ers from Cal­gary have pur­chased the for­mer site of the Drumheller Health Cen­tre on River­side Drive and are plan­ning on ren­o­vat­ing the build­ing in prepa­ra­tion for an unan­nounced busi­ness ven­ture.

The pur­chase was made two months ago, but the pri­vate cor­po­ra­tion be­hind the pur­chase is be­gin­ning to clean out the fa­cil­ity that’s lit­tered with de­bris and old hospi­tal equip­ment.

Part­ner Raj Cha­hal would not say what his group was plan­ning for the build­ing, and it ul­ti­mately de­pends on the con­di­tion of the build- ing.

“You’ve got to work closely with the com­mu­nity and lo­cal ad­min­is­tra­tion and see what will work. We don’t al­ways get to choose what we do,” he said.

“It’ll def­i­nitely be a busi­ness ven­ture. We don’t want to buy and sit on it. At this time, we’re not look­ing at it from a res­i­den­tial per­spec­tive, that I can say. But where and how we end up, re­ally de­pends on the struc­ture.”

Cha­hal and his as­so­ciates will be con­duct­ing a sur­vey of the build­ing be­fore ap­proach­ing Drumheller ad­min­is­tra­tion for re­zon­ing and pre­sent­ing their pro­posal.

Cal­gary devel­op­ers have pur­chased the pre­vi­ous site of the Drumheller Health Cen­tre and will be work­ing on pre­par­ing the site for an undis­closed busi­ness ven­ture.
