80 Prince William Street, Saint John, New Brunswick
Entrepreneur Katelyn Price had a successful first day yesterday at her new shop on Prince William Street called Juniper. She had identified this storefront as the perfect location back in March of 2020. The day she came in to sign the Offer to Lease, COVID-19 was first hitting the news! With all the uncertainly, she decided to delay signing the Offer in favour of a wait and see approach. Fast forward 3 months and she was ready to sign!
According to the ABOUT section of her Facebook Page, Juniper is “a sustainable lifestyle store”
“Juniper will provide the Saint John community with a convenient avenue of making sustainable and ethical consumer choices. We will carry clothing and skincare, as well as gifts and small home wares.”
Many of you may know the space as the former location of Liquid Gold and most recently ladies fashion store Uptown Vibes. For many years it was the home of the Buckland Gallery. The space has such a great aesthetic with the high/exposed wood ceilings and makes the perfect backdrop for all her beautiful natural products!

Known as the Bank of Canada Building, the circa 1960’s office building with a mid-century vibe has sold. The property, strategically located at the epicenter of uptown Saint John’s business district, was acquired by an investor from Calgary Alberta. The property traded for $1,680,000
The Seller, Prince Williams Properties ULC, based in California, had owned the building for several years. Strong leasing activity in the building over the last 18 months meant that the building was almost fully occupied with a strong mix of tenants making the property more attractive to investors.
“I really appreciate the expertise and diligence of Stephanie Turner in securing the leases in a challenging environment and ultimately closing the sale on the property. It’s been a pleasure to work with her.” commented the seller.
In their own announcement earlier today, the buyer stated “At 34,500 sq ft and 12 units, it is the largest office building I have bought yet. But what is more impressive is the team of extremely competent pros that made this happen during the chaos of COVID19 over the past couple months.”
Although these are uncertain times, the property boasts tenants in industries such as law, tech and alternative energy which continue to perform well despite the pandemic.
Stephanie Turner was the Listing Agent and Milad Debly, Century 21 represented the Buyer.

Directly on the heals of Commercial Properties Limited announcing they were moving their offices from the 4th floor of 58 King to a much needed/expanded space at the Red Rose building, we are pleased to confirm that the space has been leased to Hatch. The space is 2,932 square feet (located above the radio station on King Street) and needed very little in the way of leasehold improvements to meet Hatch’s needs. The space has some exposed brick and an open ceiling offering a modern industrial feel while maintaining much of the heritage character of the building.
Hatch supplies engineering, project & construction, business consulting and operational services to the mining, metallurgical, energy and infrastructure industries. They are relocating their office from the Marr Road in Rothesay to the uptown core.
“We see Saint John as a growth market for us and this new location brings us closer to two of our major clients while also providing additional amenities for our staff such as nearby parks, coffee shops and eateries.” commented Lorne Flowers from Hatch.
Please join me in welcoming Hatch to Uptown Saint John.

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.”

The history of Saint John is deep and often fascinating. I recently listed office space for lease on the top floor of 58 King Street and came to discover that the building is referred to as the Skinner Building.
“The Skinner Building was built in 1877 for clothier William Doherty. Alfred Skinner was the proprietor of a carpet wareroom in the building from the early 1880’s until the Great Depression in 1929.
After the “great fire”, Skinner started out on his own accord at 68 King Street. His business became too large for the premises so he relocated to this building. It was stated in the 1880’s that in Saint John there was no name more familiar in the households than “Skinner’s warerooms”.
He had many contracts for supplying carpets to hotels and public buildings throughout the Maritimes. In the early 1900’s Skinner’s was proclaimed to have the largest retail stock of floor coverings in Canada. ” READ MORE Source: www.historicaplaces.ca

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.”
