Mark and Steve deacon told the Nugget the building at 195 regina Street is a beautiful historic landmark.
“We will be looking at leasing out the space as professional offices. Something like lawyers, doctors, accountants,” said Steve deacon.
“Something that’ll have a nice professional look and feel for the area.”
the building, which sold in an online auction for $673,000 in april, went back up for sale because the parties were unable to reach an unconditional agreement for the purchase.
