SAINT JOHN – Saint Johners will soon have a new location to get their booze uptown.

New Brunswick-based property development and management firm Commercial Properties Limited announced Friday it will be building a new NB Liquor store on the corner of Wellington Row and Union Street. The property is currently a vacant lot used for parking.

“Working with our architect Malcolm Boyd of Murdock and Boyd Architects, we have come up with a design that extends the heritage character of the uptown but also allows for a modern retail environment,” said Commercial Properties’ vice president and general manager Paul Moore. “This exciting project is in keeping with the historic architecture of Uptown Saint John, and will feature brick and sandstone construction, as well as convenient on-site customer parking.”

The new store will replace the one currently located nearby at Prince Edward Square, with construction starting early this spring.

Commercial Properties will be hosting an open house March 1 at CenterBeam Place where residents and businesses can check out the new stores’s design and to learn more about the project.
