POSTIVE NEWS FOR DOWNTOWN RED DEER

Downtown Office Building Sold

Some good news for Red Deer’s downtown core. The former Abacus Datagraphics Building, located at 4814 Ross Street, has sold to a local investor. The purchaser is excited about this new venture and will be making some upgrades to the building in hopes of attracting new tenants. The four-story building overlooks beautiful City Hall Park and is anchored by IDA Drugs. There are currently two new tenants undertaking tenant improvements with the hopes of occupancy in September. Sunreal Property Management Company has been retained to professionally manage the property and will be handling the day to day operations. The new owner plans to work attracting new tenants to the building and is offering Naming Rights to a qualified tenant.

“This is a positive sale for our downtown”, states Cam Tomalty of RE/MAX Commercial Properties. “We have seen many businesses close or relocate from the downtown core, so it is promising to see an investor willing to commit to the purchase, put money into renovations, and work at attracting new businesses to help revive the downtown core. In addition to the Abacus sale, over the past few months RE/MAX has been successful in selling the historic Prairie Office Products building and the Old Mill. Both locations are opening new businesses, which is more positive news for Downtown. As of last week, the former Roger’s Insurance building was sold as well, filling up a downtown office building that has been sitting vacant. We are hopeful this is a sign our economy is improving and is encouraging news for our City’s downtown”.

We’ve received a donation of use of a Dodge Caravan from Southside Dodge- they’ve been an incredible support of us over the years.  Attached is the photo we took at the dealership when we picked up the keys on Friday.

Ronald McDonald House Charities Alberta, Red Deer House is truly grateful to Matt Swainson and his entire team at Southside Dodge for their steadfast support of our work to keep families together during the unimaginable hardship of the need to travel for medical treatment for their sick or injured child. Our House is not a nice to have, but a need to have, and we are honoured to work with such an amazing community partner in Southside. The use of the 2021 Dodge Caravan will help us to keep our operating costs down so that we can focus on our work to keep families close.

We have operated in the city for over 8 years, ensuring there is a safe and comfortable place for families to rest while they focus on the recovery of their child(ren).

Smiles Thru Lindsey reaching out with a new video message and urging Albertans to look out for each other at this challenging time

Published on

The holiday season is well behind us, we’re heading into the coldest part of the winter, and although the days are starting to grow longer there’s still a definite lack of daylight in our lives.  The winter blues are a real thing and this year we have COVID, a whole new serious problem to add to our mental health issues.

COVID is also the reason the Smiles Thru Lindsey team has not been able do public events for many months.  Unable to reach out physically through school visits and fund raisers, Smiles Thru Lindsey is reminding Central Albertans to check in on each other.  Also, please follow the Smiles Thru Lindsey Facebook page .  They’ll lead you to the resources you or your loved ones need right away.

Meet Lindsey and the Smiles Thru Lindsey team in this powerful video.  …And remember to check in on the people in your life.
