A look at some of downtown Belleville's new businesses

I went for a wander today to take a closer look at some one downtown's brand new businesses. I stopped in at Belleville Fit Body Bootcamp at 286 Front Street, and Gourmet Diem at 249 Front Street. Fit Body's owner, Cathy, has done a fantastic job of renovating the space. The gym has high ceilings, tons of natural sunlight, (as the entire side of the building is one big window), and some ...

Don't forget your windows!

My current theme lately seems to be "Bob Villa" type message on how to take care of your house or building in the winter time. As it gets colder you may find it helpful to make sure your doors and windows are sealed properly. Even if they were sealed at one point in time, it is still good to check and see it the seal has cracked over the years. You can ad some major savings to your heat/energy bill ...

New Business Coming to Downtown Belleville!

Out walking back from lunch today I saw a sign being put up over a recently vacated store front. What is this place going to be called? Gourmet Diem. I hope they get to open before the holidays. It looks very promising. Here is the blurb I found about them on the Belleville and District Chamber of Commerce Website: Gourmet Diem is a Cafe, cookware, and specialty food store. We sell coffee, tea, ...

Preparing your Real Estate Assets for Winter

I believe I have seen some snow flakes today. Mother nature is warning us that she is going to be making some changes around here. The switch in seasons has reminded me of times when the winter has done damage to real estate in the circle of people I know. If I had a nickel for every time a pipe froze and burst in a property of someone I know, I would probably have about fifteen cents. In my opinion, ...

Construction has begun!

A few weeks back the bridge that connects Bridge Street East to Bridge Street West was closed until the fall of this year. Construction to better the downtown core has begun! It is wonderful to be able to see infrastructure improvements happening in the downtown core at long last. Water mains, existing sewers, storm sewers, and underground service and utilites wil all be upgraded where needed. ...

Why The Build Belleville Project is Great, Regardless of Where it Ends Up

There has been, quite literally, a great divide in the citizens of Belleville and their concerns over the Build Belleville project. Some side with the "leave it alone" attitude which is worrisome because we are a growing city with a fragile and dated infrastructure that needs repairs and upgrades to support growth and avoid a continued infrastructure deficit in the futute. Some think the project has ...

First Time Home Buyer Tax Credit

Are you a first time home buyer? Do you know about the first time home buyer tax credit? In 2009 the federal government of Canada has introduced a taxable credit for when you are ready to purchase your first property. The credit is a non refundable tax credit you can claim if you purchase a qualified home that can reduce your federal income tax that you pay. This is reported on line 369 of your ...

Build Belleville

In the past few years, there have been numerous changes to the great city of Belleville. Mayor Neil Ellis has taken a proactive approach to building up this city and helping us bridge the gap to get us to that next level. The Mayor has pointed out the all too important fact that we need to invest into the basic needs of our city. Along with correcting the major infrastructure issues, Belleville also ...
