Former MET Store, Gottingen Street, Halifax


This half acre property is located on the east side of Gottingen Street between Cornwallis and Prince William Streets in the heart of the North End. In total, the proposed project includes 120 apartment units with 58 of them affordable housing, and the remaining 62 as market rate. The building will include a mix of one and two bedroom units.

For this project, the Housing Trust has signed an Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Performing Arts Lodge (PAL) Halifax so that 20 of the 58 affordable units can be set aside for artists. In addition, the Housing Trust is working with PAL to program the 8,800 SF of proposed commercial space for art themed retail and office space.

The intent is to infuse a creative component to the building that will assist PAL in their goals, and to help further the re-development efforts along Gottingen Street.
