222 Water Street

The site beside 222 Water Street has had a lot of fill brought in. Could this be a sign that the long vacant building will be coming down, or redeveloped in some other way? 

There is also some City owned land to the north of the property that could be helpful for a developer if they were looking to do something "big" with the property. .

Wentworth Apartments


This development is coming along well.

Metal is the new vinyl

Some of the first posts I made on this blog, more than a decade ago, were prompted by the NIMBYism expressed by residents and leaders of Saint John, expressed through their criticisms of vinyl siding. 

It is discouraging over a decade later, citizens and councillors have focused their energy on the new villain of metal siding.

I think this building looks pretty good.
