The doctors and surgeons all purchased houses in Kettle Valley, Lower and Upper Mission, Lakeshore etc. and didn't want to "commute" to a further location. It's a well know fact around the hospital why it was never located.

Hopefully they build it not only for todays needs, also future parking needs. To bad they couldn't add couple more levels to current parkade.

I couldn't agree more Gordo .. Problem is , that for KGH to expand to meet future needs it will need land that isn't available without the displacement of good , " affordable " , single family homes and the people who live in them .....

Parking is a mess there , I get that .. But as this city grows, KGH will need to also and it will be at the expense of good families who live in that neighbourhood ..
I payed attention in High school....But not to what they were trying to teach me..

This could have been avoided if instead of building Royal tower (late 80s early 90s), they had moved KGH to a bigger location. With the area to expand & grow.
Unfortunately that did not happen, so we are left with the current reality.

Bingo - build up not out - it’s a parkade.

Would that be smart Wally ?

My bet is IH will raze the entire even numbered side of the 2200 block of Speer street to build on ... Its right behind the Dr Anderson building and they already own all but 3 or 4 of the houses on the entire block..
