Urban Development Incentives

The City of Saint John offers financial incentives to undertake development or beautification projects on the Central Peninsula. The Central Peninsula includes the Uptown, South End, and Waterloo Village.

Since launching in 2016, the program has generated several urban development incentive projects that added residential units to vacant buildings, upper floors, and infill lots. In addition, property owners are making improvements to their front façades and yards.
