Metamorphose Continues At Lethbridge Centre.

 
 

LETHRBIDGE:  The Lethbridge Centre transformation from Mall to Medical-Business Centre continues.

 

Signs have now been installed on the south-west corner of the building, indicating the old Convergys Call Centre location is the new home for Alberta Health Administrative services in the city.

 

Some of the offices going into the space include Home Care, Finance, Purchasing and Human Resources. Most of the offices had been located across the street in the Provincial Building and in the Lethbridge Centre Business Tower. Transition of the offices is being done in stages and should be complete by late Fall.

 

The former Convergys space, the main floor and most of the second floor of the old mall are now occupied predominantly by various health services. The Bay remains as the main retail space.

 

Grace Duff, the General Manager of Lethbridge Centre, says transition of the large building from a retail centre or "mall" to a Medical-Business centre continues, and the large complex has a very bright future, albeit in a form that is different from its initial intended use.

 

The Lethbridge Centre, including the office tower, opened in 1975. The former Woodward's Department store was the anchor tenant and had a supermarket or "food floor" attached to it in the south-west corner.

 

The second level above the original main floor mall area was added in 1988. However, around the same time, the construction began on the Park Place Mall.

 

The Woodward's Department store chain suffered financial difficulties and was bought out by The Bay in 1993, which took over the Lethbridge Centre space. The old Woodward's food floor was then taken over by Safeway. However, after a number of years, Safeway abandoned the south-west corner of the building and it was eventually utilized by Convergys as a Call Centre. That Call Centre space is the new home for Alberta Health Administrative Services.

 

Duff told Country 95 News that renovations to the exterior entrances of the building continue to provide a more appealing business atmosphere. The next entrance to undergo renovation is on the north side of the building, and looks north toward the Courthouse.

 

With the transfer of some Alberta Health offices from the business tower to the main floor, there is now empty space in the tower. However, Duff says numerous lease negotiations are underway for the tower and the few remaining health-related spaces on the second floor.
