Wawanesa building work
Patrick Goulden of Shek Interiors in Red Deer works on a ceiling in the former CHCA-TV premises at 2840 Bremner Ave. for use by the Wawanesa Mutual Insurance Company. The insurance company, which is moving from smaller premises at 4711 51st Ave., will occupy approximately 5,200 square feet of the main floor of the building. The entire floor, which consists of about 13,000 square feet, has been vacant since Canwest Global Communications Corp. station CHCA ceased operations in August 2009. The second floor is occupied by radio stations 106.7 The Drive and Big 105, both of which belong to the Jim Pattison Broadcast Group. Jim Pattison Developments Ltd. owns the building. A spokesperson with Jim Pattison Developments said recently that negotiations with prospective tenants for the rest of the main floor are ongoing.
