This depiction of our Moncton skyline is not the best, it shows our massive and rampant surface parking areas even more. #notafan. Our best view is in Riverview on the Riverfront trail, where you can see some infill and density.

I agree about the surface parking, but I think the times are a changing', and that the future of the downtown core lies south of Main Street, and that the oceans of surface parking actually represent an ocean of opportunity.

This will begin along Downing Street, perhaps with a new RCMP headquarters and maybe with a new library and city market building. It will continue with phase three of Downing, including extension of the restoration project across Assumption onto the Riverfront Park, maybe with a new viewing platform over the Petitcodiac. A new street grid south of Main will encourage infill, both residential and commercial. Surface parking will be replaced by enclosed parking structures.

I'm firmly convinced the best is yet to come.........

Not really skylines, but Tammey Mclean‎ (runner of the Woodstock memories FB group) did a chopper tour over Woodstock, NB and shared the pictures she took while up there. Old Home Week was going on, so the Ayr Centre area is extra full.

All pictures are from her and posted on FB.

The pictures are up on Facebook.

Not sure if some of these will show but here goes:

Carleton Mall area (from behind):


Connell Park area, centred on Ayr Centre with WHS to the left:


Downtown Woodstock, at the mouth of the Meduxnekeag:


Closer view of the Ayr Centre (from the other side), with the Old Home Week midway set up:

With context in mind, SJ was a substantially more populated city than it is currently, which explains its built form. We have been losing people for decades although all past population projections showed the city would be home to about 200,000 by the 21st century...
