Owners hope for rezong in order to fill Abbotsford office tower
The owner of the Mill Tower on Gladys Avenue hopes to be allowed to rent office space to an expanded range of companies after finding it hard to fill the prominent building over the last decade.
The tower was converted from a grain mill to an office tower in 2008/2009, with five of its eight floors slated to be used for companies that serviced industrial businesses.
But nearly a decade after the conversion, the building remains more than half-empty, according to a submission to the city. The tower’s owner has now requested a rezoning that will allow it to rent or sell office space to commercial services, including insurance, health care and real estate companies.
