    Conception Bay South: Lots on the Go

    First and foremost, Newfoundland hospitality is second to none. It’s a place that “come-from-aways” clearly recognize as a special location and often relate to Newfoundland as their second home. Here people don’t care about your status, pocketbook, or ­nationality. They’ll invite you in for tea, most often to tell you a story or sing you a song.

    Then, of course, there’s the downtown scene that ­attracts people from all over the world. With more bars per capita than other provinces, the downtown core has unlimited choices of beers and spirits, entertainment, and ­venues. Let’s put it this way—once you enter the party zone, you just might not come out for a few days!

    When we’re not fishing or hunting out in the grace of nature, we’re working. ­Newfoundland has prime business real ­estate with 18 ­industrial parks, providing strategic ­locations that have become home to the top oil and gas companies in the world. With relatively low-cost business real estate and office space, ­Newfoundland’s ­industrial parks all have ­efficient water, ­energy, ­communication, and transportation networks that facilitate ­business growth. ­

    Investors in the province can access the Economic Diversification and Growth ­Enterprises Program (EDGE), which provides long-term ­corporate tax ­holidays to new and ­expanding businesses for up to 15 years.

    One of the newest industrial parks in the ­province is the CBS Industrial Park, ­independently owned by entrepreneur Keith Maher. Set in the rapidly growing eastern edge of Conception Bay South, Maher’s park is strategically located on the hills ­overlooking Conception Bay! ­Complementing the ­industrial park is the start-off point for one of the world’s largest ATV trails which will attract adventurists and nature lovers from all over the world.

    Maher says, “the CBS Industrial Park will be offering 76 acres of industrial land with lots ranging in sizes to meet individual needs. They are fully serviced water lots that also contain septic systems.

    We look forward to serving the energy industry, and we know that this location will be a sustainable ­investment for companies who want to be close to St. John’s, yet have the beauty and ­affordability of Conception Bay. ­Newfoundland is one of those hidden gems that has more to ­offer in terms of lifestyle and overall growth ­potential—the secret is now out of the bag.”
