Lorneville Mechanical leasing E.S. Fox building

405 King William Road, Saint John

As reported by HUDDLE, Lorneville Mechanical Contractor’s Ltd (“Lorneville”) announced this week that they won a contract to fabricate large modules as part of an expansion at the Irving Oil Refinery. Although they’re manufacturing the components at their current facility in the Spruce Lake Industrial Park, they required additional space. The nearby E.S. Fox building located at 405 King William Road was vacant and on the market. They’re using the Fox building for their tooling group and for some material storage associated with the project. “Given the short term nature of the contact, it didn’t make financial sense to purchase the building but we were fortunate enough to be able to negotiate a 9 month lease of the facility” says Todd Bethune, Lorneville’s C.F.O. There were other ways to satisfy the requirement for additional space but the close proximity to Lorneville’s current facility made the E.S. Fox building an ideal solution and both sides were pleased to be able to hammer out a deal.  

The 24,000 sq ft facility with 54’ clear ceiling height sits on 27 acres of land and is ideal for large module manufacturing. It will continue to be marketed for sale or lease and will be vacated by Lorneville in early March 2018. For more information on 405 King William Road click HERE

Murphy’s operates a chain of independent pharmacies and have been serving the health needs of communities across Prince Edward Island for 30 years.  “We’re been working with Irving Oil through Partners Global and Provincial Realty for some time now to lease space in the Millennium Drive retail development. We’ve leased the two remaining vacant units between Subway and House of Chan. One side will be a pharmacy and the other a medical clinic including after-hours clinic” said Jeff Murphy, Chief Financial Officer at Murphy’s Pharmacies. “We love the location. Being close to a growing residential area made a lot of sense for us.”

The Case for an 11 Storey Building on King’s Square

Have you ever wondered how the boundaries of the Trinity Royal Conservation Area were decided? The boundaries are purely arbitrary and, I can only assume, were voted on by the Heritage Review Board when it was first established in 1982 or by some other elected body that the citizen’s of Saint John put their trust in at that time.

“The Irving refinery spent $60 million in 2014 which employed 2,000 workers for a million hours. The turnaround was such a big event, it had a $51.6 million impact on New Brunswick’s GDP. This is in part because the many workers needed food, accommodation and other necessities, which benefited the local economy.” Source: www.canadianfuels.ca

This year’s turnaround, dubbed Operation Falcon #opfalcon, was just announced and involves a reported investment of $200,000,000! That’s over 3 times last year’s investment.
