The development is a close distance to the city centre, Horizon’s Saint John Regional Hospital, the University of New Brunswick and an abundance of nearby shopping, dining, and community centres.
NexLiving acquired 41 Noel in August 2018, 50 Noel in April 2019 and 51 Noel in December 2020. The acquisition of 49 Noel gives NexLiving all of 167 units in the Village View Suites development.
NexLiving’s CEO, Mike Anaka, commented “We are very pleased to complete the acquisition of all four properties in the Village View Suites. The ability to complete follow on transactions with merchant developers is a key component of our growth strategy. Our continuing and growing relationship with Irongate Developments and other merchant developers is a fundamental component contributing to our significant and expanding pipeline of near term acquisition opportunities.”
Stephen Brittain President, Irongate Developments commented “We see our relationship with NexLiving as a significant component of our development plans. Completing projects with a potential and well qualified acquiror identified in advance broadens our opportunities both internally and with third parties. We are very comfortable with the multi-family market as an asset class and NexLiving as a business partner. That’s why for each of the Village View transactions we have taken a growing portion of the consideration in shares rather than selling out completely”.
