The old Traders Inn Motel property in Chilliwack has been sold again.
It had been listed for sale at $1.85 million after the last set of renovations started, and hastily stopped.
It sold for $1.775 million.
Glenayre Realty’s Rick Toor confirmed the motel property has now changed hands, after subjects and conditions of sale were lifted.
Toor could not say who had bought the property, but he did represent the now previous owner, Chilliwack Country Inn.
The L-shaped property has been purchased, sold, and partially renovated several times over in the past five years.
A couple of years ago, City of Chilliwack considered the building derelict and a nuisance. A thick file had been gathered at city hall, after getting numerous complaints, as it had peeling paint, broken windows and torn signage. It had been sitting empty since 2013 when police executed a drug raid and made arrests.A fence went around the property in 2014, after it was bought again, and it suffered damage from a water leak.
The property at 45944 Yale Road was also once being eyed as a location of the much anticipated “contact centre.” The facility later opened elsewhere, with funding from BC Housing as the Chilliwack Health and Housing Centre, at Young and Hocking, to deal with the growing mental health, housing and addiction problems in Chilliwack.
Now it looks like something is in the works at that site, but it is not clear what yet. Stay tuned at www.theprogress.com for more
