Shaping a New Place on the Halifax Waterfront!
New Place is 20,000 square feet of public space between Salter and Sackville Streets on the Halifax waterfront that houses high-quality seasonal small local businesses, arts and entertainment, and nestled near Waterfront Warehouse and Stubborn Goat Beer Garden.
The area includes Sands at Salter, a performance stage, and lots of public seating. Eight gender-neutral public washrooms, including two accessible washrooms, enhanced lighting and landscaping. “New Place” and seasonal vendors for Halifax waterfront. A Request for Proposals was issued in late 2016.
The site presented many exciting opportunities given its location, size and connections. In June, 2016 over 100 people participated in engagement sessions to help shape the vision, and visit the new site. The session included a project overview, an update on what we heard from the engagement sessions, a concept presentation, and exercises to enhance the concept. #shapemywaterfront
Thank you to those who joined us for a Concept Review Session on July 14 at Maritime Museum of the Atlantic to help shape this new place on the Halifax waterfront. Read More About What We Heard at the Engagement Sessions.
