Dr. John Sherrard to open inclusive creative space in KV

120 Millennium Drive, Quispamsis, New Brunswick

Brunswick Brokers Limited is pleased to have brokered another lease deal at 120 Millennium Drive in Quispamsis.  Less than a year after moving his orthodontics practice to the building, Dr. John Sherrard has leased the adjacent vacant space previously occupied by the Grape D’Vine.  The new space will serve as an extension of John’s orthodontics practice but this area will be designed to complement the professional services he is providing with a recreational component. Sherrard will be collaborating with Maritime artists to create a safe place for people to pursue artistic interests and be able to express themselves creatively.  

“My hope is that this expansion will serve our patients and the community, giving a voice to the voiceless and helping people find their inner smiles again” said Dr. Sherrard.  “Bringing back the smiles (our tagline) has never been just about teeth.  This passion project is my way of helping bring back music and art, which have been pushed to the sideline at the same time as unprecedented masking, restrictions, and educational/life stresses.  I don’t just want to fix the smiles people see… I want to give people an opportunity to find their own authentic smile, no matter what that might look like!”  

Dr. John Sherrard

Renovations to the space will be ongoing and John hopes to open the space in July.  The name of the space is still in the works, but no matter what, John has told us we can expect it will be fun.  For more information or if you wish to offer ideas or other forms of support, please reach out to

Brunswick Brokers Limited takes pride in serving the commercial real estate needs of Prince Edward Island based businesses. Our most recently brokered transaction involves the property at 503 University Avenue in Charlottetown. The property has served as the campus for Maritime Christian College for almost three decades. In 2019 the college started a move towards more online learning for its undergraduate and certificate programs, and when the pandemic hit in 2020, the college was able to accelerate its online learning efforts to serve 100% of students in a high-quality online learning environment. The new model worked well and the college was able to expand the number of students it was serving. In early 2022, the Board of Directors for Maritime Christian College decided to reposition the assets of the college by selling the property in Charlottetown. The college engaged Brunswick Brokers Limited to find them a buyer for the property. The 24,000 square foot building which currently houses the college’s admin offices, classrooms and dorm rooms sits on 3.42 acres of land located directly opposite the entrance to the University of Prince Edward Island. 

Long standing, Charlottetown based company, The Gray Group recognized the potential for residential development for this location and seized the opportunity to acquire the property. With the current rental housing demand they believe redeveloping the property at 503 University Avenue into multifamily, residential dwellings will be the most beneficial use to the community. According to The Gray Group’s President, Trevor MacLeod, “We will be taking considerable time to work with our planners to ensure that a high level of quality and sustainability is met.”

Residential development in the greater Charlottetown area has seen a spike in recent years due to an aging population and a lack of quality, multifamily rental options available. Developers have had considerable success in pre-leasing ahead of building completions, pointing to the high demand for rental units.

“The sale of the physical asset at 503 University Avenue is not one that the college undertook without a lot of deliberation. We decided that our future work in fulfilling our mission is more aligned with a focused online learning environment than in maintaining physical assets.” said Richard Jones, Chief Operating Officer of Maritime Christian College. He went on to say that the college has continued to expand its ability to serve students from around the world with a high-quality online learning experience that is available anywhere, anytime. Based on demand from its partners in other countries, Maritime Christian College has even added a graduate-level degree in 2023.

The College’s administration offices will be relocating to office space at the Sherwood Christian Church at 9 Lilac Avenue in Charlottetown.

Part II of Silver Falls Land Sells

Brunswick Brokers is very happy to announce that they were instrumental in securing a buyer for a 16.56 acre parcel of land off Nason Road in the Silver Falls area of Saint John. The land is currently zoned Future Development and is adjacent to an established multi-unit residential development including Michael Crescent and Martha Drive. This area is popular with renters due to its proximity to retail, restaurants and services. The Land which was owned by the Silver Falls Park Development Company Limited was sold by the estate of the late Harold and Ruth McNamara and purchased by local developers. 

This is the second parcel that Brunswick Brokers has sold for this vendor. In October of last year, another company purchased a 12.5+ acre parcel of land located near the corner of Commerce Drive and Loch Lomond Road in Saint John, NB. That property is zoned Business Park and the buyers of that land announced plans for a commercial development.   

Stephanie Turner of Brunswick Brokers represented Silver Falls Park Development Company Limited and Troy Nesbitt, also of Brunswick Brokers, represented the buyers.

Beacon Ortho’s new location will include a best-in class production facility including 3D printing equipment allowing them to design custom prosthetics for clients from all over New Brunswick.

The property offers things such as curb cutouts and automatic door openers for people with accessibility needs.”

555 Somerset Street is a two-story suburban office building located in the north end of Saint John.

Brunswick Brokers is pleased to announce the leasing of 507 Main Street in Saint John. Entrepreneur and nightclub operator Sandeep Saini has leased the stand-alone building with plans to open King’s Club Bar & Lounge. Saini operated a night club in Moncton with the same name but sold the business recently to open another one in Saint John. The Saini family are no strangers to the Saint John business community with Sandeep’s family also operating Royal King Taste of India on Union Street and Grand King India Grocery in Parkway Mall.

507 Main Street is known by many locals as “The Main Brace” and is easily recognized by the battle scene mural on the side of the building which was painted in the early 1980’s by prominent Saint John Artist , Ray Butler. The property has had many uses over the decades including a bank, legion and even operated a popular nightclub in the early 2010’s. The street is also famous for the annual Marigolds on Main which sees thousands of children plant a sea of bright marigolds in the median.

The immediate area is rumored to see significant changes in the streetscape over the coming years including a new mixed-use development in the lots next door to 507 Main and a re-engineering of Main Street by the City of Saint John with a reduction in vehicle lanes and the addition of a dedicated cycling lane.

King’s Club Bar & Lounge is scheduled to be open to the public last week of May, 2023.

Brock Turner of Brunswick Brokers was the listing agent and Jas Chohan of Royal LePage represented the tenant.

Surge In Office Sub-Lease Opportunities Evidence of Corporate Right-Sizing

COVID has had some unexpected and positive lasting effects on how we go about daily lives. When it comes to commercial real estate, the obvious one is the new hybrid work model. This new model results in office occupiers often being able to operate the same business with less office space. This new trend means landlords are taking back more space than ever when leases expire. We are also seeing more tenants, who are tied to leases, listing their space for sub-lease. This results in some advantages to tenants who are shopping for new office space.

  1. The vacancy rate is high which means landlords are often sharpening their pencils to attract tenants to their vacant spaces.
  2. Tenants are comparing market rents being advertised by landlords with sub-lease opportunities which are often discounted or, at least, very negotiable.
  3. Tenants have the opportunity to align their physical footprint to their current and future requirements.
  4. If downsizing, tenants can save on their monthly overhead or upgrade the quality of their space for the same rent resulting in space that is nicer, smarter or both!

The first step in right-sizing your office is to determine how your current office space is working for you. Once you understand your needs you may realize you need to shrink your space, move or lock the doors and turn off the lights. “Lock the doors and turn off the lights” might seems like a drastic move but if you don’t need the space and can successfully sub-let it, you may be able to drastically cut your losses. If you are tied to a lease but your space is no longer working for you, sub-letting your space is an option. Some landlords, in order to attract you to their building, may even make it attractive for you to move mid-lease.


All this to say… If you have too much space or are in the wrong space, call us to discuss your options.
