When Introhive first arrived in Saint John they needed office space quickly which allowed for flexibility while they ramped up their presence in Saint John. Connexion Works provides an ideal short term solution. Once they got a better handle on their growth strategy for this market it became evident that they would need to find a larger and more permanent solution. A search of the local vacant office space uncovered a space that seemed ideal. The space was formerly occupied by DFS Architects and had been completely renovated only 4 years ago. It has a cool modern vibe and a great view of the harbour! Introhive only needed to make a few minor changes to the space to make it perfect for them.
Introhive is a relationship data science platform for #CRM that drives user adoption and proactively delivers valuable insights about clients and prospects. They now have 16 employees in Saint John. Jerry Carr, Introhive’s CTO commented “We are continuously recruiting and having an awesome office space is a key part of attracting top talent.”

A 24,000+ sq ft industrial building located in the Spruce Lake Industrial Park owned by E.S. Fox has been leased on a short term basis (9-15 months) to a large industrial occupier as swing space to accommodate a refurbishment at the Tenant’s permanent facility. This comes directly on the heals of two earlier short terms leases.
The building was originally built for large component manufacturing and is pretty unique in the market. The ceilings are over 50 feet high and one end of the building opens up like an airplane hanger. The building sits on 27 acres of land in the Spruce Lake Industrial Park and is located in close proximity to the new barge terminal.
There are many reasons why a business may have short term requirements such as contract fulfillment, temporary storage or swing space. Although finding a long term tenant or buyer for the facility is preferred, E.S. Fox is pleased to have found multiple opportunities to lease the space to local businesses requiring short term facilities.

1655 Manawagonish Road, Saint John, NB
Many passers-by believed this brick building was a church due to the signage out front which read “Convention of Atlantic Baptist Churches” but it was purpose built in 1981 as a two story office building. After several years on the market, the property was sold late last week. The property was sold to Unifor and new owners plan to continue to use it as an office building.

AUGUST, 2018. The old adage that location is key still hold true. With the recent announcement of the new museum on the Saint John waterfront, 75 Prince William Street has it in spades.
According to the CBC story “The “landmark” four-storey, 120,000 square foot building [museum] is intended to present a glass and terra cotta front on two sides facing the harbour and Market Square, and a more traditional look toward the uptown.”
The story goes on to say “The museum is intended to be the first piece for the long anticipated Fundy Quay development, which could someday include residential and commercial projects on the waterfront next to Market Square.”

Pure Nature’s Wellness Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Aphria Inc., has finalized the purchase of 384 Lancaster Ave in west Saint John. The property will be used in the future as a laboratory for the testing and production of medicinal cannabis oils. In a recent CBC story, Ian Scott, Aphria’s Product Development Officer, said “This facility will be staffed with chemists, scientists, laboratory technicians, research and development experts as well as all the required process and packaging support staff.”
In order to allow for the use, the property was successfully rezoned to “Business Park Commercial” with the added condition the property is not to be used in future for anything other than a cannabis processing facility. Rick Turner of Hughes Surveys in Saint John assisted Aphria with the logistics of the re-zoning application and public consultation to address any local concerns.
Early on, the Province of New Brunswick recognized this relatively new and fast growing industry as an opportunity for our province and have been proactive in their efforts to attract cannabis related businesses to NB. Steve Milbury of Opportunities New Brunswick, the province’s economic development agency, was involved in attracting Aphria to our province and helped support Aphria in their efforts to get the Lancaster property re-zoned for their use.
