This international award winning project on the Halifax waterfront comprises 248 residential units located above retail, commercial and parking facilities. The project features a range of residential units, specialty retail shops and a significant public waterfront park and boardwalk. The design references regional and local heritage architecture, traditional masonry detail and pitched roofs which provide a unique image for this complex, mixed-use project.

Designed to LEED Platinum, this mixed-use project will redevelop a full city block in downtown Halifax while incorporating five heritage buildings. The development consists of two towers – one for office and the other to include a boutique hotel and condominiums. The design incorporates a folding wall and roof that unifies the expression for the development. A central public atrium, plazas, street level retail and landscape features will create an engaging urban experience.

The redevelopment of an entire city block in downtown Halifax will create over 500,000 square feet of mixed-use development. Designed to LEED Platinum Core & Shell, it will utilize many features to reduce its environmental footprint, including solar hot water roof panels, geothermal, photovoltaics, rainwater harvesting, raised access flooring in the office tower, hybrid heat pumps in the hotel and condos and and heat reclamation from sewage waste.

 
Kings Wharf is a master planned mixed-use waterfront development that will ultimately consist of twelve buildings. The first two buildings introduce residential use to the area with underground parking and street level commercial spaces. These buildings establish the urban character of the development while taking advantage of the view opportunities toward the harbour and downtown Halifax. The Martello on Dresden Row is a luxury residential development located in the heart of Halifax’s Spring Garden Road district which enjoys 360° views of the Halifax peninsula. The tower is constructed on top of an existing parking structure and shopping centre. It lies partially within the view planes from Citadel Hill and the form is stepped accordingly. The distinctive stepping back and staggering of the façade at the upper levels creates generous roof terraces and dynamic balcony profiles. The Housing Trust is a non-profit created to provide affordable housing in Nova Scotia. Its first two projects consist of ½ acre lots on the same city block. Each property is designed to enhance the urban character of the street and neighborhood. The buildings similarly respond to their through-block condition by creating street level retail space along the commercial street and family units with individual street entrances along the residential street. This design for 325 residential units reflects the substantial movement and mobility that varies across the front of the site. The combination of historical rail, Chain of Lakes trail walking/cycling, and major traffic corridor create a place of vibrant motion and randomized activity. This movement is captured by randomized protrusions and recesses that engage and interact with the street, creating a strong community streetscape and urban presence. Avoiding a conventional double-loaded corridor layout, an innovative solution was developed that increased density while creating a series of private courtyards for residents. Phase 1 comprises of 103 residential units, retail space and indoor parking spaces. Upper floors create a pattern of repetitive forms that reference the eclectic nature of the surrounding neighbourhood while retail storefronts provide an animated geometry that define individual shops and provide a pedestrian scale streetscape. The project was awarded the 2018 Development of the Year by the Investment Property Owners Association of Nova Scotia.
