Nelson Commons gets a boost

The Nelson Commons project started to get off the ground — literally — earlier this week.

The Nelson Commons project started to get off the ground — literally — earlier this week.

With help of the Nelson Fire Department, the planning team behind the Kootenay Co-Op Country Store’s redevelopment of the old Extra Foods store at the east end of Vernon Street took a look at what the view from the condo units would look like when built.

The team was hoisted to the three-storey level to take pictures for its upcoming sales drive.

The Nelson Commons project is aiming for a July opening of its showroom which will be located at the corner of Hall and Vernon streets.
