Good stuff.

Myles, it's time to update the header on the thread to read "under construction".

At that height (8-9 stories depending on if you count the penthouse), the answer would be unequivocally yes.........

I have to say, I'm loving the plan and with the addition of the hotel, restaurant and brewery, this will be Moncton's first multi use (well, not true multi use, but it's more than just condos) residential building won't it?

The one concern I have is price... the price of a 1 bedroom condo is more than a brand new detached home in Moncton! Add to that the condo fees and a 1 bedroom condo will have a higher monthly cost than a 300k 3 bed 2 bath home...

From Mayor Dawn Arnold's Facebook page:



Documentary evidence that excavation for 55 Queen has begun!!!



I wonder if she will be providing more pictures from her elevated perch in city hall?

They could install a webcam at that location, would be a nice vantage point.

Looking closer at the image, I wonder if the excavator isn't digging a hole to allow them to pour a concrete base for the tower crane. It's a square (rectangular) discrete hole at the dead centre of the construction site.

The building will have underground parking, the crane base would therefore be bellow that level. I think they are just starting to dig the underground level.

I would think you are correct MonctonRad. The crane will be required to build the underground parking structure.

That shot is literally taken from our dept back window. Yeah, I could put a webcam up there easy, but to do my due diligence I'd need to talk to contractors first... they're a skittish lot about that sort of thing.
