New Public Spaces at Cunard

Developed in partnership with Southwest Properties, Cunard is a high-quality, mixed-use project that will contribute to a total of two acres of exciting new public space on the Halifax Waterfront, near the intersection of Lower Water Street and Morris Street. The development will be built to LEED® Gold certification.

The Cunard Residences will feature 231 rental units, interior parking, and ground level retail. Together, the building and its surroundings will form a unique new destination on the southern waterfront. Southwest Properties started construction on the C Cunard project in spring 2021, and completion is scheduled for mid 2024.

Construction is anticipated to begin on the new public space in winter 2024 and continue until summer 2024. The plan is to maintain continuous public access to the water’s edge during and after the site’s development. Once the project is complete, Build Nova Scotia will manage and operate these new waterfront public spaces.

Build Nova Scotia looks forward to welcoming the community back to Halifax’s southern waterfront and inviting ways to help program and activate Cunard’s new public spaces.

Our sincere thanks to everyone who has contributed to this process. Build Nova Scotia engaged with the community on the possibilities of Cunard’s new public spaces. Guided by past conversations about the waterfront, we focused on ways to continue to make the waterfront a welcoming, inviting, and comfortable place for everyone to visit and spend time.
