Developer showcases trio of 14-story apartment buildings for downtown Moncton


A Sackville developer is seeking approval for a plan that includes the construction of three 14-story apartment complexes in downtown Moncton.

T. Hicks Construction Management Service has submitted plans to the Moncton Planning Advisory Committee on behalf of JN Lafford Realty Inc. as they seek committee approval to construct the apartment complex, which will include underground parking and commercial and retail space at 20, rue Record.

As part of the proposed development, the application requests the approval of a conditional and non-conforming use to allow parking between the facade and the street and to develop more than two alleys.

The committee will study the request at its next meeting scheduled for May 26 at 5:30 p.m.

Lafford Realty did not respond on Wednesday when CBC News attempted to find out more about the project.

Properties listed on the company’s website include 23 York Street and 112 Main Street in Sackville, as well as its Birch Meadows development, which is under construction in Moncton.

Sarah Anderson, senior planner with the City of Moncton, said in an email that the planning report and any additional information will be accessible through her media portal on the day of the meeting.

In May 2019, Moncton City Council rejected a proposal from Slate Office REIT to dezone 20 Record Street to allow parking for 365 spaces.

Council rejected it due to concerns about the environment and how this could affect future requests to add more surface parking in a section of town where such lots already make up about 40 percent of the population. area.
