East Point Shopping is the creation of East Point Inc. This unique retail development was founded on the vision and forward thinking of developer Troy Northrup. East Point Inc. is a retail real estate development company headquartered in Saint John, New Brunswick and is focused on creating the most unique shopping experience in Atlantic Canada. East Point Shopping is located on a series of prominent plateaus overlooking the busy retail community in East Saint John. The East Point Shopping site was chosen for its central location, great public visibility and ease of access from city streets, roadways and the nearby Saint John Throughway, Route 1.
The Greater Saint John region is experiencing an economic and cultural renaissance founded on a new era of political leadership and an innovative and effective community plan. East Point Shopping is proud to be playing a pivotal role in this transformational change taking place in our city. East Point Shopping is not a traditional retail development; it is setting a new standard for retail shopping in the region and symbolizes the momentum of positive change in the “new” Saint John. This is a time when we at East Point Shopping are very proud to call Saint John our home.
The process of assembling properties required for the development began in 2000 and East Point Inc. was incorporated in 2005 to manage the development and operation of the site. East Point Inc. has assembled a team of real estate development professionals located in Saint John, Montreal and Toronto to develop, construct, market and manage the East Point Shopping project.
East Point Shopping currently has over 80 acres of land under active building development. Anchored by the Costco Wholesale warehouse and Home Depot, the development is home to fashion retail stores, hospitality and business services including GAP Factory Store, Indigo Books & Music, Starbucks, Fairweather, Sally Beauty, International Clothiers, Le Château, Montana’s Cookhouse, Moores, Mr. Big & Tall, Nakai Spa, Roots 73, TD Canada Trust, Tip Top Tailors, Tweed & Hickory, Wok Box and a Hampton Inn and Suites Hotel by Hilton. Our most recent addition is a flagship Princess Auto Store, the largest in the Maritimes. The total building area developed to date is nearly 480,000 square feet, with the eventual site build out expected to reach over 700,000 square feet of retail, hospitality and service establishments.
