It is excellent news that the huge 17,000 sq.ft building at Clark & E. 7th is to be saved for industrial use.
The Chinese language newspaper World Journal Vancouver which occupied the premises closed in January and the building was offered for sale for $6.3 million. Cushman & Wakefield confirm to the Georgia Straight that a sale is being completed and the potential new owner “intends to renovate the existing building, keep the land’s industrial zoning, and use the property for business purposes and to create employment.”
That is marvelous news. Grandview needs all the industrial land it can keep to encourage local employment and to boost the local economy.
