Floating Sea Bridge:

The sea bridge will be open seasonally as much as possible, depending on weather, and safety related to the construction site. We will provide regular updates on the sea bridge accessibility through our social media.

The sea bridge is not intended to replace the boardwalk. Rather, it is one effort to support pedestrian movement during construction. The current alternate pedestrian route is the west side Lower Water St. between Prince and George Streets and there is wayfinding signage in place which will be enhanced over the next couple of weeks, as well.  We continue to work with our partners to refine the construction mitigation plan and are in discussions with HRM related to Lower Water Street flow.

About the Project

At the foot of George Street, in the centre of the Halifax waterfront, Queen’s Marque District is a defining project for Halifax and tells the story of Nova Scotia through form and place.

In partnership with The Armour Group Limited, award winning developer and owner of Historic Properties, Waterfront Development has been working to advance this project to ensure it captures the imagination of our community through public space infrastructure and program design, as well as the attention of the world as an iconic Halifax development.

They unveiled the Queen’s Marque district in May, 2016 —  a project shaped by the distinct character and marked experience of this province and its people. With a strong deference to our region’s origins, Queen’s Marque tells the story of Nova Scotia through form and place employing design, architecture, materials, and art to convey both our heritage and a forward looking sentiment that honours the experience of being Nova Scotian.

The lived experience of Nova Scotia is reflected in the architecture and design of the over 450,000 square foot Queen’s Marque district, with 75,000 square feet of public space being created. Construction is expected to start in late 2016, with expected completion in 2019.
