Wellburn's Market property acquired; dev plans include mid-rise residential complex
The North Park neighbourhood's Wellburn's Market building and its adjacent surface parking lot have been tentatively purchased by a Vancouver-based real-estate development firm with plans to develop the property, Citified has learned.
