Delta throwback: Attractive new medical centre opens

The $750,000 project provided ‘maximum convenience for physicians and patients’
Located at the corner of Ladner Trunk Road and Linden Drive, a condo complex replaced the building over a decade ago.

Let’s head back to April 1970 when a modern new medical building opened its doors on Ladner Trunk Road.

The clinic was “one of the most functional and at the same time attractive-appearing medical centres in the Lower Mainland.”

The frame-type construction and 7,500-foot dimensions were designed and built Wolf Engineering and Construction of Surrey.

The $750,000 project included a $250,000 investment made by the doctors.

The centre contained accommodations for four medical doctors as well as a self-contained dentist office.

Space was also provided for an optometrist, a complete X-ray department and lab facilities.

The building would end up housing a variety of different businesses throughout its life and for some years was the office of the Delta Optimist newspaper.

A condo complex now occupies the site.
