Saint Mary’s Hospital to make way for Bosa development

Saturday, May 22nd, 2004


NEW WESTMINSTER I The sale of Saint Mary’s Hospital is a done deal.

On Thursday, May 20 — the day the 117-year-old hospital closed its doors for good — the Sisters of Providence announced they’d sold the property to Bosa Development Corporation.

“We are working with the city to come up with a plan that fits with their vision, our vision and the community,” said Nat Bosa, company president. “We would like to proceed as soon as we can. Our plan would definitely be to be on the ground early next year.”

Bosa said the proposal may include 400 units in two highrises and lowrise buildings. No commercial or health care use is planned for the site.

“We are working on a concept,” Bosa said. “We are redefining and moving forward until we can come to some kind of decision with us and the planning department.”

Bosa said the site was purchased for $4.44 million.
