5510 Spring Garden Road Mixed Use Development  Halifax, NS

Owner: 
Westwood Developments Ltd.
Completion: 
2015

5510 Spring Garden Rd. is a mid-rise development combining retail and residential spaces. The first 3 storeys will house commercial tenants including the Bank of Montreal at ground level. The second floor is accessed directly from Spring Garden and Birmingham streets via stair and elevator setting a new precedent for retail in downtown Halifax. Five storeys of residences complete the building, the top two are connected to create loft units with an abundance of daylight and views to the Halifax Harbour and beyond.

The building is clad with a combination of stone, masonry and glass. At ground level the sidewalk is enlivened by two glazed canopies defining the building entrances. The main levels above are clad in a contemporary masonry rainscreen system: solid tiles and glazed French balconies animate the Birmingham St. fa├žade with sunshades and floor-to-ceiling glazing enveloping the larger corner units along Spring Garden Rd.
