The Real Estate

The land in which Black Knight Inn was on is a highly valued piece of real estate. There were some thoughts of affordable housing or condos for the area that would give housing to local residents or those looking to move to Red Deer. However, in one corner of the land a KIA dealership has been built. There is still plenty of land to build future projects. Will it be residential? Will it be commercial? We will keep you updated.
