Ross Cantwell of the Housing Trust of Nova Scotia says two properties were demolished in the spring with plans to start construction this fall on a mixed-income development. But the start has been delayed. Work on two Gottingen Street projects will begin in the summer of 2013 at the earliest, more than 18 months later than expected.

That will now be pushed back as the developers seek an amendment to the Peninsula North secondary plan, a 12-month process that began in September.

“We want to go ahead,” Cantwell said in a phone interview. “We’ve demolished the buildings and we’re running parking lots, because that’s what you do in downtown Halifax.”
