Harbour Station Land

"Harbour Station" sits on land that used to be part of the harbour and partly derives its name from the city's Union Station passenger railway terminal which was located on the site until an urban redevelopment in the early 1970s when the railway station was demolished to make way for the Saint John Throughway. The former Union Station was used by both CN and CPR trains.
