200-206 Union Street, Saint John, New Brunswick
The property at 200 Union Street, known by many as the former Academy of Hair Design, has new owners.
The property was purchased by a couple from New Brunswick. The property is commercial on the ground floor and has 6 residential units on the second floor. The new owners intend to use the ground floor for a new retail establishment. Details on that to come at a later date.
The building has a long history in Saint John. The original business was “Jacks Men’s Wear”. It was owned by Jack Levine and eventually his son Ellis Levine. Former Saint John Mayor Sam Davis designed the building for Jack Levine. You can still see the name “JACK” inlayed in a tile mosaic by the sidewalk near the main entrance.
This is just one more in a string of recent announcements about an exciting revitalization that is happening along Union Street and in the Waterloo Village area.
Stephanie Turner, Partners Global, was the listing agent. Lee Yuyang, Re/Max Professionals Saint John represented the buyers.
36 Richmond Street, Saint John, New Brunswick (Waterloo Village area)
Adams Green announced today that they purchased 36 Richmond Street which is located at the corner of Richmond and Prince Edward Streets.
The 3 story heritage brick building is a masterpiece of architectural detail much of which has thankfully been preserved. The ground floor with its high punched tin ceilings and old “apothecary” drawers has been used for various commercial enterprises in the past. The upper two floors were most recently rented as one massive residential unit. The attention to detail and craftsmanship evident in the extensive wood paneling and molding is impressive. Two built-in rounded benches are absolutely amazing.
According to the Press Release issued today “Adams Green is the first accounting firm in Canada to be certified as a B Corporation. That means they value people and the planet as much as profit”.
In the press release Owen and Haley Green, the new owners, go on to explain that they are launching The Wheelhouse “A kind of community centre for entrepreneurs, where people can come together to collaborate around all kinds of ideas”.
They really embraced the Waterloo Village location… it fits right in their “wheelhouse” of being socially responsible. The Union Street and Waterloo Village areas of Saint John have experienced a wave of investment in recent months and they wanted to be part of making a difference in this up-and-coming neighbourhood.
Stephanie Turner, Partners Global represented the Buyers and Gary Vincent of Keller Williams was the listing agent.
