ABOUT THE BUILDING
Welcome to the Niagara Regional Police headquarters! At least that’s what our building used to be. 110 James Street was originally constructed in 1974 and housed the Niagara Regional Police from 2005-2016. This 6-storey building boasts nearly 50,000 square feet of usable space in the core of downtown St. Catharines, with easy access to the highway, public transit, food and a variety of entertainment. Sounds great, right?
You should have seen it when we bought it. Kyle Tkachuk, the founder of Clickback, now operating out of the 6th floor of the building was looking for a way to provide entrepreneurs, small business owners and like-minded individuals a launch pad to start their business.
With that core goal in mind, this building was purchased with the intent to completely re-design, revamp and renovate each and every floor to create a modern, naturally light-filled, colourful and open concept space for other businesses to enjoy. Want all the details? Take a look below!
