With a dearth of condo development news in the Halifax region over the past few months, we get excited anytime we catch a whiff of a possible new development rumor or learn that construction of an approved project is about to begin. Unfortunately, it seems that any such potential condo development news of late turns out to be a bust—a case of “nothing to see here, folks.”

Last week we got a bit excited when a noted business publication posted a story about Dartmouth’s Harbor Isle development seeking a new development...

A proposed condo building on Dartmouth’s Richmond Street that has been on hold for several years may be back in play, as the developer has asked the municipality to grant an extension on its soon-to-expire development agreement. Banc Properties originally announced plans to build the two-building condo building in 2013, and was granted a development agreement in 2014. However, due to market conditions and construction of similar projects in the north-end Dartmouth neighbourhood, Banc put the project on hold.

With an October deadline for...

Size, or lack thereof, is perhaps one of the biggest complaints people have about condos. And while micro-condos might be all the rage in Toronto, the trend hasn’t really taken hold in Halifax, and your average Haligonian condo resident would probably love a bit more space.

Well, kids, pull out your check books and start bidding because what will become one of Halifax’s largest condo units is now on the market. Of course, being among the largest, also means that it will be one of the city’s most expensive, too…especially...

Well, condo aficionados and others who like to keep abreast of all things condo in the Halifax area, there certainly has been a lack of condo-related news of late. In fact, the dearth of Halifax-related condo news even has the sound of crickets going silent. Or perhaps that’s just a factor of it being winter in Nova Scotia.

Anyhow, CondoNova is pleased to now be able to report a little bit of Halifax area condo news. In fact, we could have reported on this “news” back in January, but at the time didn’t feel it was that...

Construction may soon begin on Halifax’s newest condominium development, Stanley Street Homes, but competition for the condos could get tight with only eight units planned for the north-end Hydrostone neighbourhood development. And these eight units will be phased in with each two-unit duplex-style building on one of four 33’x100’ lots undergoing construction sequentially,  another factor that could increase the sales competition.

Developer Kerry Lynch recently received the go-ahead for the project from the Halifax and...

South-End Halifax’s Wellington Street has been tapped as the location for another potential condominium building, though the developer could face local community opposition, given the extensive opposition that long stalled the last condo project to be approved on that street—Gorsebrook Park Condos. Any pending opposition is unclear, but so is the developer’s decision on whether to market units in the proposed building as condos or apartment rentals. However, Banc Investments Ltd. owner Alex Halef, developer of the proposed building,...

Noted Halifax-area developer Francis Fares this week launched the next phase of Dartmouth’s King’s Wharf with the announced groundbreaking of the multi-use development’s centrepiece building, “The Maristella.” Originally tagged with the moniker “Iconic Tower,” fares announced the name change and planned Fall 2017 groundbreaking in a Monday press release.

Former North-End Halifax Department of National Defence lands at the intersection of Windsor Street, Bayer’s Road and Young Street could become the site of a three-building, mixed-use development that may include condominiums.

The proposed project, which is being pushed by local developer Joe Ramia, includes development of a 21-storey tower and 16-storey tower with a combined 335...

People who’ve been yearning for Toronto-size condo towers on the Halifax skyline are just going to have to put their dreams on hold, as the Halifax Council officially quashed the 10-year-old development agreement that would have allowed the tallest condo buildings in Halifax.

Halifax Council voted 10 to six yesterday to discharge a development agreement held by Navid Saberi to build a pair of 27-storey condo towers on the corner of Hollis and Sackville Streets in downtown Halifax. The developer had been seeking a three-year extension for...
