Lacombe Market Square should take shape soon

A proposed commercial development on the east side of Lacombe should soon begin to take shape.

A proposed commercial development on the east side of Lacombe should soon begin to take shape.

Lacombe Market Square (C1C) Ltd. plans to create a large shopping centre parcel, three neighbourhood commercial parcels, two environmental open space parcels and two parcels for public or institutional use. Low-, medium- and high-density residential lots are also contemplated for the area, which is located east of Hwy 2A and south of Hwy 12.

Lacombe Mayor Steve Christie said the developer isn’t able to elaborate on the development due to confidentiality agreements.

But he expects additional details to be available in early June.

Christie added that infrastructure work on the site will continue as conditions allow.

An Edmonton developer announced in 2011 plans to develop the quarter section as Wolf Creek Crossing. But the land was later sold following a mortgage default.

The buyer at the time was identified as Canada 1 Corp., an Edmonton company.
