Situated on one of the most prominent streets in Saint John, Historica Royale is a four story brick building located at the upper end of King Street in Saint John’s city centre.
Today, the ground floor is broken up into two retail spaces. 78 King Street is occupied by a high end woman’s shoe and purse business called The Urban Shoe Myth, and 80 King Street is occupied by Silver Daisy Designs, a clothing, jewelry and accessory retailer. Both stores complement the building very well and contribute to the overall quality of the area.
The upper three floors of the building consists’ of very high end loft apartments – considered the most interesting and beautiful living spaces in the city. They offer a unique blend of red brick character with all the modern amenities. Plus a roof top patio.
Built in the late 1800’s, the building has been used for many purposes over the years, some of which include: warehousing, retail of china, glassware and cookery, offices for financial firms, lawyers and dentists, and more recently was home to Tapps Brewpub & Steakhouse for over a decade.
