CHARLOTTETOWN - Tim Banks of APM has announced the company is expanding its construction project on Lower Queen Street in downtown Charlottetown.

APM has been working on a major restoration of the former Kays Brothers Building, now the Welsh Owen Building, for the past year.

With the co-operation of the City of Charlottetown and the Heritage Board, APM has started to add an additional 35,000 square feet to the complex, expanding to the corner of Queen and Water streets, said Banks.

“The new build will coincide nicely with the authentic charm and feel of the downtown core,” said Banks. “Its design is fresh and modern but will also tie in nicely with the historical feel of downtown. It’s really going to revitalize the area.”

In total, APM is investing $10.3 million towards the entire project and expects numerous retailers and offices to locate there. Campbell Lea, Barristers and Solicitors, have already signed on as tenants.

Ken Godfrey, partner of the Charlottetown-based law firm, explains their decision to move.

“By moving to this excellent new location and incorporating the latest technology available, we will be better able to serve our existing clients and expand our client base. We’re very excited by the ideas put forward by APM’s design team to make our space extremely welcoming and professional when complete.”

More tenants are expected to be announced in the coming weeks.
