Fredericton council approves new residential development

The City of Fredericton will break ground on a new residential development on the city’s north side.

Council approved a 1,400-unit residential development for Reynolds Street, the city confirmed in a post on social media platform X, formerly known as Twitter.

“The project is in the city’s northwest growth node and supports a growing city’s housing needs,” the post reads.

The project and its approval comes after developer consultation and approval by the city’s planning advisory committee.

Officials said the development features a mix of housing types, a central park and trail connections.

It will be located near amenities and services like Brookside Mall.

Expected to be developed over three phases, the city said the project will create an important link from Brookside Drive to McLeod Hill Road.
