BCLC buys more property for Kamloops headquarters, but what are its plans?

FILE PHOTO: B.C. Lottery Corp.'s current headquarters are directly east of three parcels of land the crown corporation has purchased.

KAMLOOPS - The British Columbia Lottery Corporation has finished purchasing land to the west of its current headquarters, but won’t confirm its plans.

Lottery Corporation spokespeson Laura Piva-Babcock says the Crown corporation now owns three properties immediately to the west of its 74 West Seymour St. head office after it bought the third section of land in November.

While those are the only pieces of land the corporation owns, Piva-Babcock says the purchase was to give them choice, and would only confirm that they are planning to stay within Kamloops.

“We’re hoping to come to some conclusions in 2017,” Piva-Babcock says. “We are still looking at our options.”

The company began its search for a new headquarters in May.
