Delta throwback: Working at Seven Seas

The city used amenity money from the port over a decade ago to purchase the Seven Seas property
Ladner, BC Seven Seas site in the 1970s
The Delta-owned Seven Seas site and the adjacent Chisholm Street parcel formerly occupied by the Brackman-Ker warehouse have been unused for years.

Let’s head back to the late 1970s to check out the Seven Seas Fish Company on Chisholm Street in Ladner.

Jim Heras operated the waterfront business starting in 1975.

The now fenced-off, vacant building is still there today. It has been owned by the City of Delta for a number of years.

City council earlier this year approved a contract for a consulting team to help shape the Ladner Waterfront Public Lands Development Strategy and Chisholm Street Reconfiguration project, a site redevelopment strategy and concept for the revitalization of Delta-owned lands along the waterfront.

It was one of the key recommendations by the Ladner Village Renewal Advisory Committee.

The primary focus will be the Seven Seas site and Spot on the Water Park, along with developing options to reconfigure Chisholm Street and allow for future dike raising along the entire length of the street.

The Delta-owned sites in the area are viewed as an important catalyst to encourage redevelopment in Ladner Village and the harbour.
