New Dalhousie residence worries homeowners
Plans by Dalhousie University to build a third student residence along South Street have local homeowners worried about increased noise in the neighbourhood.
The university has applied to rezone some of its properties at the corner of LeMarchant and South streets in order to construct a seven-storey residence for more than 300 students.
Once the residence is built, there will be a total of 1,300 students in the area.
Brad McRae, who lives kitty corner to the proposed development, said he and his neighbours are worried their sleep will be disrupted by noisy students coming home from downtown bars in the wee hours of the morning.
"The students walk down South Street to go to the bars that are open until 4 a.m. so you can have a pretty sleepless night," McRae said.
