The North Boardwalk Project is located in the area between Chebucto Landing up until Casino Nova Scotia. In years past, this area was the heart of the Halifax waterfront, and this project hopes to revitalize and bring more visitors to this incredible area. This project will capitalize on the energy and timing of the Cogswell District, improving connection of the waters’ edge to the city through the Cogswell District.

The Gehl Report ‘Towards a Human-Scale Cogswell’ was released in January, and includes a review of Cogswell District. The design includes some inspiration for North Boardwalk area.​
