This major adaptive reuse project is located on a two hectare site at the southern end of the downtown waterfront in Halifax with access from Lower Water Street. The site steps down approximately 7.5m from west to east, from Lower Water Street to the harbour. To the south there has been significant redevelopment of some of the existing harbour buildings including the NSCAD, and historic Pier 21. To the north and west vacant lots exist that will be subject to future development.
