We are excited to announce that our plans for 166 Russell Ave are moving forward! Our 1650 sq. ft commercial space for lease in St. Catharines hottest neighbourhood, The Fitzgerald, is now open to expressions of interest.
A St. Catharines’ Midtown Destination
St. Catharines’ Midtown, also known as “The Fitzgerald”, is starving for a place to call its own. With the highest density in the city, its walkability is at a premium for the “go-to” spot. Cold Drinks on the patio with friends, a flat white with brunch or a charcuterie board for two for a late evening… Heck! This neighbourhood would be all over healthy, hot, and ready-to-go meals. The world is your oyster!
Welcome to “The Fitz”
Niagara’s newest most happening neighbourhood, the Fitzgerald is walking distance to the urban excitement of downtown St Catharines. It also boasts a new school, playground, splash pad, thriving community centre and dog park. Young professionals and families are flocking to invest in this area and secure themselves a piece of this hip urban/ family friendly lifestyle – and they are ripe with excitement for your creative endeavour.

166 Russell Ave: The Space
This mixed-use space carved into apartments is located on the corner of Russell Avenue and picturesque Wolseley Avenue – the best street in Midtown.
166 Russell Ave will be renovated from the tired, white-sided two story, keeping apartments up top and turning a former main-floor computer repair shop into a 144-square-metre, 30-seat restaurant. An 81-square-metre joint with room to add a street-level apartment is also an option. There is also preliminary approval for a commercial patio space on Russell Ave. This exciting project has already garnered interest from the community and local media. Read the St. Catharines’ Standard article on of 166 Russell Ave.
We envision a space like the highly “Instagram-able” Butcher’ s Daughter in New York or Remedy House in Buffalo, with exposed brick and high ceilings. Something with the neighbourhood feel of bakery where first names are exchanged with regulars stopping in for loaves and sweets. Where does your imagination lead you? The world is your oyster with this blank slate!
