A large construction company has just been awarded the sale and contract of the former Crowsnest Centre site.
Council voted unanimously on Jan. 22 to enter into a sale and construction agreement with Medican General Contractors.
Started in Medicine Hat as a concrete company, Medican began building single-family homes and condominiums and was one of the first builders to introduce luxury condos for homeowners aged 40 and up.
They've now expanded across the country with completed condo developments in Quebec, Saskatchewan, B.C. and Alberta.
The municipality said details of the sale would be released to the public shortly.
Comment: There is so little information here and what little there is is both confusing and contradictory from what we have been led to believe all these many months since the mayor announced a hotel for this site last June.
This company has never built a hotel, nor are they hoteliers? What exactly are we getting here and more importantly what have we gotten ourselves into?
Spoke with Joni and she couldn't shed any more light on this story than what there is above but promised to update it as soon as she hears more. Stay tuned, as they say "the proof is always in the pudding."
When buying and selling are controlled by legislation, the first things to be bought and sold are legislators.
