It appears Delta is taking the redevelopment of municipally owned land at Ladner Harbour in a different direction.
At an in-camera meeting last week, Delta council voted to not proceed with the Quay Property Management proposal for the redevelopment of the Seven Seas building and adjacent Delta owned sites.
Late last year, the Corporation of Delta announced the selection of Quay Property Management to submit a detailed proposal for the redevelopment of the civic-owned properties along the waterfront that are hoped to be the catalyst to reinvigorate the area.
At the time, Delta said the company's submission was "consistent with the vision for the waterfront identified by the Downtown Ladner Waterfront Redevelopment Committee."
Quay Property Management is behind some well-known markets, including the Tsawwassen Quay Market at the ferry terminal and Lonsdale Quay Market in the North Shore.
At the Oct. 29 in-camera meeting, council also directed staff to explore the cost of demolishing the Seven Seas building and retrofitting the remaining platform, the platform of the former Brackman-Ker Warehouse and the adjacent Delta-owned properties for public use.
Council also directed municipal staff to draft a bylaw to create financial incentives for redevelopment on both sides of Chisholm Street.
The item is on the agenda for tonight's public council meeting.
