Low Key Watersports moves down the road

Longtime Wharfside Village business Low Key Watersports is relocating this fall to the brand new One Bay Street building next to Grande Bay.

“We’ve been at this location for 26 years, ” says co-owner Ann Marie Estes, “but this new location has great exposure for us. ”

Low Key moved their boats further down Cruz Bay Beach a couple of years ago when DPNR ordered changes for live-aboards and charters, so its boats are already directly across the beach from the new location.

Tomorrow, we’ll tell you what well-known St. John retailer is taking over the Low Key space.

    I was wondering what that building was going to be! I was thinking it was part of Grande Bay.

    I can’t imagine who’ll be taking over the Wharfside space . . . Starfish (mini) Market? 🙂

    I don’t think it will be St. John Spice they have had enough experience with Wharfside.

    Doesn’t matter who it is, I’m applying for a job. Anywhere that when you walk out of the front door and take a seat at the Beach Bar has got to be a great place to work!

    Congratulations to Ann Marie! Low Key is one of the gold standard on St John. The new location looks to be a landmark site. The owner seems to be sparing no expense in construction. I’ve been watching it go up. All of the stone cladding gives the impression of “island solid.” As for the new Wharfside tenant to replace Low Key, expect it to be a destination retail business.

    Is new building construction still under way? We were looking at a Grande Bay unit right next door and were wondering about noise and view blocking.
