Construction of the Queen’s Marque District is now underway on the Halifax waterfront. The mixed-use commercial, retail and residential development includes 75,000 square feet of public space and three new wharfs. Unveiled in May by Waterfront Development and The Armour Group Limited Queen’s Marque represents almost $200 million in private-sector investment in the waterfront. The province has approved additional capital funding of $1.8 million to enhance nearby public spaces, and a construction mitigation plan to help minimize disruption to the public and surrounding businesses during construction. The total approved investment is $6.5 million; $4.75 million was originally approved in 2010.
