Developers have broken ground on a $30 million project in Moncton's downtown.
Five Five Queen is going to be an eight storey building with a 64 room boutique hotel, a microbrewery and 70 residential units.
Developer Bill Hennessey says the building has a unique, modern design and will occupy an entire city block.
He adds the building will generate more new development around the area once completed.
Construction is expected to be complete by the fall of 2018.
