65 University Avenue, Saint John, New Brunswick
This 3,000 sq ft building located in a high profile Millidgeville location has finally changed hands. The property has been “under agreement” for close to 3 months. Although the due diligence on commercial building usually does take time, this transaction was further complicated by the need to have the property rezoned. The property was previously zoned “Neighbourhood Community Facility” which limited what a buyer could do with the building to mainly institutional type uses. It took a buyer willing to pay the fee to the City to request that the property be re-zoned (with no guarantees) and the patience to wait through the 2 month process.
In the end, the buyer, Integrity Home Health Services, was successful in getting the property rezoned to “General Commercial” and will be operating their in-home health care business out of the facility. According to Kris Price, co-owner of Integrity Home Health Services, “The property suits us very well, with this much space it will allow us to grow and further develop our training program for our Personal Care Aids”
St. John Ambulance moved their training facility to Parkway Mall in East Saint John early this year.
