Somerset Street and Barker Street Property,
Saint John, New Brunswick

The Property

The subject property consists of a 956 square metre (10290 square feet) lot located at the intersection of Somerset Street and Barker Street. It boasts a commanding view of the Saint John Harbour that is further enhanced by its southern exposure. The property is zoned Multi Family (RM-1). A plan is prepared to request rezoning of the site to Commercial (B-2). A conceptual plan has been prepared showing a structure that could be developed as a two-storey commercial or residential structure. Another option would be to have a mixed use with the first storey commercial and second storey residential. The site is conveniently located not far from the uptown area and is on the bus line. Present traffic counts were 13900 vehicles per day in 1999 with potential for 21400 vehicles per day after recommended city transportation study improvements are in place. Municipal water is adjacent to the site and municipal sewer would require a minor extension

Other Considerations and features

1. A preliminary cost estimate for service connections and site development is available upon request
2. The site is surveyed
3. The property is registered on the Provincially Guaranteed Land Titles System

Future Upgrading to Somerset Street

Somerset Street is the primary connector between the Uptown and Millidgeville. Accordingly it has been recommended for upgrading in accordance with the 1999 Transportation Study carried out for the City of Saint John. Street improvements were previously completed up to the subject site and the continuation of the recommended upgrading will further enhance the site for commercial or residential use.
