Consultation has concluded

The property at 6067 Quinpool Road is scheduled to be marketed for development, but first, HRM Regional Council needs your help to decide what kind of development that should be.

As of May 13, 2016, the demolition of the former Saint Patrick’s High School building was complete. Top soil was then overlaid, and hydro-seeding took root in the summer of 2017.

The former site of the Saint Patrick's High School, 6067 Quinpool Road was declared surplus municipal property by Regional Council in 2014, and the land will be prepared for future sale and development.
The municipality undertook an innovative approach to dispose of this property as enabled through Administrative Order 50, Respecting the Disposal of Surplus Real Property. Because the property has been categorized as Economic Development, the municipality had a unique opportunity to advance development through a change in zone. To that end, land use by-law regulations and planning policies are being created for the site that will ensure a mixed-use development with a focus on urban design and built form excellence, which will complement and enrich the Quinpool Road business district and neighbourhoods, as informed by the public.

Public Consultation

The first presentation and open house was held on July 22, 2015, to provide residents with the opportunity to review and comment on three preliminary design directions for this landmark site. The three design directions were prepared by project consultants following a detailed background analysis of the site and the surrounding community.

Consultants and municipal staff reviewed over 600 comments received during the initial public consultation period, and subsequently developed draft land use by-law regulations and municipal plan amendments that will eventually guide future design of the site.

A second presentation and open house was held on December 9, 2015, to review feedback from the first open house, and to present proposed land use by-law regulations and plan amendments.

Public comments on the draft land use by-law regulations were collected December 10 to January 4, 2016. We invite you to review the comments submitted by clicking here.

Consultants and municipal staff reviewed public feedback in order to further refine the proposed by-law and plan amendments, in advance of initiating the Council approval process early in 2016. The future sale of the site is anticipated in 2017, after Regional Council approves plan amendments and land use by-laws as proposed under Centre Plan. Once approved, the property will be marketed for sale.
