Clement’s work pays homage to the city’s aviation, oil, and communications history.
Concessions include some of the town’s locally renowned dishes, such as George’s Greek Cafe, Taco Beach Grill & Cantina, McKenna’s Moncton Burger Bar, Sweet Jill’s Bakery, Polly’s Gourmet Coffee, and the 4th Street Vine.
“The new passenger concourse is an amazing success and captures the spirit of the Moncton lifestyle with its palm tree plaza and outdoor fire pit,” Mayor Bob Foster said in a statement. “The restoration of the terminal has improved our customer experience while remaining true to the building’s Streamline Moderne architecture. Both projects deserve the recognition they receive. ”
