The province is looking for innovative and creative ideas to develop a prime piece of downtown Halifax real estate while preserving its historic façade.
Government has issued a request for information to gather ideas for the development of the Dennis Building site on Granville Street which includes the Hansard Building and the adjacent parking lot.
The Dennis Building is beyond repair and the Hansard Building requires significant repairs. The request for information gives the private sector the opportunity to take the lead and redevelop this prime real estate in the heart of downtown Halifax.
The Dennis Building is currently vacant and the Credit Union is the only tenant in the Hansard Building.
The request asks respondents to prepare a vision for the site which includes retaining and incorporating the façade of the Dennis and Hansard buildings into any new development of the site.
Deadline for submissions is July 28. Details of the Request for Information are available at
