The proposed 30-million dollar Irving Oil office complex on Long Wharf is taking another step forward.
There is a public presentation at common council this evening dealing with an amendment to clear the way for the development.
Irving says surveys show the majority of residents in the Saint John area support the development -- the company is also suggesting it could spur other development if the Smythe Street power substation is relocated.
The development still needs the blessing of the federal government to allow a land swap between the Port Authority and Irving clearing the way for the complex.
