Unoccupied Commercial Property Listing

The Corner Brook Downtown Business Association has launched its Unoccupied Commercial Property Listing, an ambitious plan to market and promote development in the downtown.

The property listing includes retail and office space for lease, buildings for sale and vacant structures. Where possible, ownership or realtor information is included, as well as pricing, square footage and potential uses.

“It is important to have a critical mass of business in the downtown,” said DBA Chair Jim Parsons. “By identifying unoccupied space and making the connection with owners, we hope to stimulate interest in these properties as business opportunities.”

Many properties are not listed as for sale or lease.

“It is a great time to buy or lease property in the downtown. We’re trying to look at this space as an opportunity instead of liability.”

The Unoccupied Commercial Property Listing can be found online at www.downtowncornerbrook.com. Owners of unoccupied buildings or those that have space for rent are encouraged to contact Nicole McKinnon at the Downtown Business Association (nicole@downtowncornerbrook.com or 634-7052) to have their properties added.

About the DBA

The Downtown Business Association BIA Board of Directors represents approximately 250 businesses in downtown Corner Brook and works in partnership with the City of Corner Brook and other stakeholder groups to enhance the area as a shopping, dining and services destination.

Business Improvement Program 2016

The Business Improvement Program (BIP), introduced by the City of Corner Brook a few years back, is an annually budgeted initiative aimed at improving the frontal appearance of commercial properties in the City, while maintaining their traditional character and appeal. Specific guidelines were developed for this purpose, some of these include obtaining a building permit, at least two quotations for the proposed work, and meeting certain conditions in terms of constructions and/or landscaping. An evaluation committee needs to pre-approve the proposal before the actual work is undertaken.

Under the BIP, tax credit is offered by the City based on actual investment, subject to a maximum credit of $10,000. In addition, the building permit fee is refunded. The program, initially rolled out for the Downtown area, was later expanded to cover all the businesses in the City.

The BIP 2016 application deadline was 16th September 2016.  No more applications will be received under this Program.
