Highly motivated sellers willing to assist with development approvals and financing to help you build your dream home! This lot is truly a rare find, with the land being on prestigious Douglas Avenue. It is surrounded by historic homes with stunning 180 degree views of the St. John River. Facing West, the sunsets overlooking Milford and the cliffs of Highland Road are unbelievable. At roughly (approx. only) 42 ft wide x 245 ft deep and zoned “RM-Mid Rise Residential” in the Douglas Avenue heritage area, you are free to build your dream home, executive townhouses, luxury apartments, a Bed & Breakfast, a daycare and many other options. With the newly redesigned heritage by-laws, the City is making it easy to develop infill properties. The large swath of land behind the property is zoned “Park” so there is a little fear of losing your view. Unbelievably, a short 20 minute walk along Harbour Passage to enjoy all of what Uptown Saint John has to offer. Conveniently, there are 2 bus stops within 200 feet of your front door. A driveway with dropped curb for off street parking and water/sewer connections are available at the property line, potentially saving you tens of thousands of dollars in installation costs. If you’ve always wanted to live in the hub of Saint John, but also ached to create something new and of your own, then this is your opportunity. Don’t let it pass.
