303 Westmorland Road, Saint John
After more than 2 years on the market, 303 Westmorland Road has traded and people can expect to see some activity there in the coming months. The building took longer than expected to sell. One of the main factors that was discouraging buyers was that the spot zoning only allowed for “used clothing sales” meaning that any other use needed to apply for a rezoning/variance.
Once Collins Tours was successful in getting the property rezoned for their use, they purchased the building. “I really liked the attraction of this building for more than one reason” said Greg Collins. “The location of the building was key, remaining in the east side was important since our office has been in the east side of Saint John for 15 plus years, the layout of the building being open concept, the overall improvements made to the building, and investment opportunity of owning vs leasing a property.”
Collins also shared the following message, “In the end I want to thank the previous owner for his help and patience, Gary and Stephanie for their patience, and the city of Saint John for the approval of the zoning. Most importantly, Collins Tours & Consulting Ltd wishes to thank our past, present, and future support over the past years of business to make this happen in our home city.”
Stephanie Turner was the listing agent and Gary Vincent. RE/MAX represented the buyer.
