Former New Westminster Blockbuster site to rebuild
It may not be a blockbuster of a development, but the former Blockbuster building could soon be going down.
The city has received an application for a development permit to replace the current structure that formerly housed the Blockbuster video store on Sixth Street at Seventh Avenue.
City staff have advised council the property's owner, Marco Investments of Vancouver, proposes to demolish the existing one-storey commercial building constructed in 1974. It would be replaced by a two-storey building with more than 10,000 square feet of floor space.
