The hotel building was shut down several years ago after the city discovered 27 units occupied as a low-income, long-term residence with make-shift cooking facilities, as well as numerous other health as safety violations.

Let’s take a step back in time to visit a former hotel and bar that had a long history of controversy.

The North Delta Inn at the corner of Scott Road and 70th Avenue, off Nicholson Road, was torn down a few years ago after the city moved to shut it down.

The owners of the vacant property this year submitted preliminary plans for a mixed-use development.

It would include three, six-storey buildings with a total of 243 residential units as well as 11,712 square-feet of ground level commercial space.

No rental housing is proposed.

In late 2019, a previous development concept for the property was discussed by city council,

That proposal included a mixed-use development with 432 residential units and some commercial and public amenity space.

That plan included a six-storey rental building on the west portion of the site, a 24-storey building in the middle of the site and a 29-storey building on the east portion of the site.

The development proposal saw a reduction in the heights to comply with the recommendations of the Mayor's Housing Task Force for Scott Road.
