"Chateau Saint John" Takes Shape

The yet unnamed hotel currently under construction off highway 1 on St. Paul Street is beginning to rise, as it reaches the fourth floor. Below is a sketch of what the finished product should look like.

Saint John Transit Ops Centre

Construction workers at the new Saint John Transit operations centre began putting on the outside walls last week. Construction is slightly behind schedule, but certain interior elements of the building were finished ahead of schedule which may allow for completion on time when all is said and done.

SJT's current location must be vacated in June to provide a parking lot for a plaza currently under construction on Fairvale Boulevard. The garage portion will be useable by that time, but any delays may impact office staff.

Projects in Uptown / South End

I've been kind of slack lately updating this blog; I think the dead of Winter has kept me from going outside to take new shots. I did take a few minutes to put together this map of current projects in the South-Central area.

This year should bring plenty of construction activity to the area, with Harbourfront Residences, The Abbey, and Peel Plaza starting construction as early as Spring.
