Coming soon…MounView condos and commercial development
Depending on the interest generated for the MounView project, Cranbrook could see a new condo/retail/office development soon.
Details are sketchy at this point, but you may have noticed a new development sign posted along Cranbrook's busy and high visibility Van Horne Street in recent weeks. The sign board features an architectural concept drawing for a new condo, retail/commercial development proposed for land that has sat vacant for many years.
Though the exact address is not listed, it would be at approximately #30 Van Horne Street, just south of the Culligan Water premises. Many years ago the lot housed the original Kelly Douglas building which was later converted into the popular Kootenay Cattle Company restaurant. The building was eventually gutted by fire and earlier this spring the original concrete foundation was excavated to allow for future development.
The proposed development is called the MounView and would feature office and retail space on the ground floor and several levels of what look to be luxury condominiums rising above the first floor — offering residents a spectacular view of the Rocky Mountains to the east. Realtor Lori White at Royal LePage East Kootenay Realty is listed as the contact, she has told Kootenay Business in a texted message, "This is not an offering for sale — more of an interest."
Depending on the interest generated for the MounView project, Cranbrook could see a new condo/retail/office development in the not too distant future. We will pass along any more details as they become available.
