MacGillivray Properties obtains former Scotsburn Dairy building


STELLARTON – Another building on South Foord Street will have a bit of a makeover, thanks to MacGillivray Properties Ltd.

The company purchased the former Scotsburn Dairy building and are revamping it to meet the needs of its new prospective occupant, Nova Scotia Spirit Co.

NS Spirit Co. will be setting up shop with a distillery and storefront, moving from their current location in Hillside.

Donald Clarke, property development co-ordinator, says the building is no longer a dairy, so they removed the 160,000 litre silo for milk last week during the beginning of renovations.

“We want to move the building toward a new life,” Clarke says, adding the renovations should be complete by late fall and there may be additional space to rent once complete.

“We want to restore the building back to its original look in the front, blast the brick and put up some nice signage. We hope (NS Spirit Co.) will be very successful and breathe new life into the building that has been closed the last year and a half.”
