Markup for links not working - Version 5.4

I'm fairly new to MMD but not to MD, I've tried many things but I'm trying to compile a piece of writing into html and for some reason the links are not working. This is across the board for all links. See the paste below for a small section / example:

Notice the "Spring Arts Tower" or "bookstore" links aren't rendered to html links and the reference ID's at the bottom are not stripped. What am I doing wrong?

    You're using "fancy" quotes for the titles for your links -- did you
    copy/paste from Word, or some other "backwards" word processor??

    Don't do that.... ;)

    You sir are a genius :) I was using scriviner originally, then copy pasted into vim for my testing. Thanks for the tip!
