Work has begun in earnest on Stuart Drive on the site of the Fort St. James Hotel building.

The manager of the liquor store couldn’t speak to the future plans of the owners, and rumours about the relocation of the cold beer and wine business to part of the space currently under construction next to Fields were not yet confirmed. Workers renovating the commercial space said an agreement was close to being reached.

New owners of the hotel property were on vacation and not able to be reached before press time.
