St. George Streetscape Improvements (2013-2019)

The 2013 St George Streetscape Improvement Plan provides for a series of short term streetscape improvement projects. The identified projects have been selected for reasons such as: immediate impact requiring minimal infrastructure improvements to the street while building edge to strengthen the pedestrian space.

The design elements to establish the ‘edge’ include: cast-in-place concrete curbed planters, decorative metal fencing, ornamental grasses, bulbs and the integration of edible herbs and plants over time as a pilot project. A standardized black, metal fence has been selected to emphasize the delineation of the pedestrian space and the ornamental grasses will change through the seasons softening the fence.

The first phase of this project has been implemented as follows:

  • decorative fencing
  • curbed planters
  • ornamental grasses
  • flower pots

St. George Street Conceptual Plan

This plan builds on the work of the 2006 Downtown Moncton Development Vision to develop a strategy for St. George Street to allow it to reach its full potential.

St. George Street Urban Quarter

The St. George Street Urban Quarter is created and defined through the infill and redevelopment of key sites on St. George Street.

DMCI wants to highlight the Urban Quarter of St. George Street and how it contributes to the overall vitality and appeal of our downtown. DMCI plays a very active role in planning and encouraging new development and new businesses to locate to the growing business district of St. George Street.

St. George Street Revitalization.

St.George Street has seen a remarkable evolution in the past years. Many still remember this street as being almost entirely commercial with very few residential buildings. Back then, it was all too familiar to see a wide range of family businesses, ranging from grocery stores, pharmacies, family restaurants and  laundromats.

Did you know that Assumption Life opened its first offices on St.George Street?  So did the first Canadian Tire store ever to open in Moncton! St.George Street is now fully integrated in the downtown area.

Residents and business owners remain very attached to St.George Street today. They appreciate the history and culture that is proper to this part of downtown Moncton. Many were born, grew up, studied, worked and still live in the same neighborhood. Back then, it was common to see many families not only operating businesses but also living in those buildings which housed their business. Many of them lived on the 2nd floor while conducting business downstairs. DMCI is very well aware of this special bond that tie people to their roots.  We will continue to work with them, all the while, respecting this heritage they hold dear to their hearts.
