Saint John waterfront

Construction set to begin on first of 5 Fundy Quay buildings on Saint John waterfront

The long-awaited Fundy Quay development on the old Canadian Coast Guard site will soon be taking shape, says Chris Elias, the vice-president of development for Fundy Harbour Group. 

The Saint John-based, family-owned company is planning five buildings for the waterfront site, but will build them one at a time, at a pace of one roughly every two years, he said. 

Elias said the first building will go on the southwest corner of the property — along the water on the cruise-ship-terminal side of the property. 

“As of right now, we’re starting on our foundations within the next two weeks or so,” he said. 

Instead of a “typical slab on grade foundation, there’s extensive piles involved with supporting the foundation, Elias explained Elias.

“So people will see and hear the piles going into the site in the next two to three weeks.”

This work will be done below grade, but once complete, he said, Saint Johners will soon see the building start to go up. 

The smooth, flat terrain belies the extent of the work that’s been done in recent months. So far, the bulk of the work has been underground.
