36 Richmond Street, Saint John, New Brunswick (Waterloo Village area)
Adams Green announced today that they purchased 36 Richmond Street which is located at the corner of Richmond and Prince Edward Streets.
The 3 story heritage brick building is a masterpiece of architectural detail much of which has thankfully been preserved. The ground floor with its high punched tin ceilings and old “apothecary” drawers has been used for various commercial enterprises in the past. The upper two floors were most recently rented as one massive residential unit. The attention to detail and craftsmanship evident in the extensive wood paneling and molding is impressive. Two built-in rounded benches are absolutely amazing.
According to the Press Release issued today “Adams Green is the first accounting firm in Canada to be certified as a B Corporation. That means they value people and the planet as much as profit”.
In the press release Owen and Haley Green, the new owners, go on to explain that they are launching The Wheelhouse “A kind of community centre for entrepreneurs, where people can come together to collaborate around all kinds of ideas”.
They really embraced the Waterloo Village location… it fits right in their “wheelhouse” of being socially responsible. The Union Street and Waterloo Village areas of Saint John have experienced a wave of investment in recent months and they wanted to be part of making a difference in this up-and-coming neighbourhood.
Stephanie Turner, Partners Global represented the Buyers and Gary Vincent of Keller Williams was the listing agent.
