Moosehead & Cox were two most popular stories of 2016

Now that we’re in to 2017, I wanted to thank everyone who has visited my website/blog in 2016. The site got a ton more traffic last year, hitting a new annual record of 43,696 views (up from 25,546 in 2016).

best-day-everThe single best day was June 1st. The story that day was “Moosehead Should be at the Head of King Street #91king” with 6,679 views. UPDATE: Unfortunately, as most of you have heard Moosehead’s subsequent plans to build on the waterfront have been shelved. Maybe that means that they will reconsider #91king!  If you missed the original story you can find it HERE

My next most-read story of 2016 was on April 27th and it was “Cox Electronic Winding Down Retail Business” with 5,298 views. UPDATE: The story said that the store would be open until the end of 2016 but wound up closing several weeks earlier. This showcase property is for sale or lease. Did you miss the story in April? You can read it HERE

countries-chart-2Where do you think these “views” come from? Canada and the US rank 1 & 2 but would you have guessed that France is 3rd? Next come South Korea & Barbados. See chart to the right for the top 10 countries of original of traffic to www.SJcommercialRE.com

Moosehead should be at the head of King Street #91King

Moosehead is an institution in Saint John with a long history on the west side. That being said, it makes so much sense for them to have a significant presence in our business core as well. To commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Oland family’s brewing business, they announced today that they would be establishing a new “small-batch brewery” here.

According to today’s Huddle Story they are looking for a 10,000 square foot location “with hopes of finding one in the city’s uptown”. As fate may have it, 91 King Street has a 9,900 s.f. footprint.

Although I’m no graphic designer, I put my amateur skills to work to create an edited version of the corner of King and Charlotte. This location is perfect for Moosehead! Large enough, high profile and across the square from the new Irving Headquarters. To make it even more appealing, this corner is not subject to heritage regulations… giving any developer the utmost leeway in design.

In my humble opinion, Moosehead needs to take their rightful spot at the head of King!
