Historic condo project underway in Halifax
DateDecember 3, 2013
HALIFAX – The sales centre has opened for an ambitious Halifax condominium project designed by Page + Steele/IBI Group Architects of Toronto.
The historic Roy Building on Barrington Street will be transformed into a 22-storey luxury condominium. Demolition begins next March, coinciding with other major developments in the downtown core, including the Nova Centre, where IBI Group is also doing work.
The Roy building will include a year-round swimming pool, fitness facilities, and 24-hour executive concierge service. It will be the tallest structure in the city’s downtown and will offer views of Barrington Street’s heritage district.
“Born from the character, richness and complexity of Barrington Street,” said Henry Burstyn, Project Architect, “the Roy will be a true mixed-use development that will enhance the vibrancy of downtown Halifax.”
“The Roy will be distinguished as a residential address with the lowest unit starting on the 8th floor and every unit enjoying protected views of the city or the harbour,” said Mansoor Kazerouni, Design Partner.
Construction begins next summer, with completion scheduled for 2015.
