Cogswell Interchange

Lands Plan

The Halifax Regional Municipality is conducting a detailed technical analysis of the potential redevelopment of the Cogswell Interchange lands in downtown Halifax.

Redevelopment of this site has been previously studied by HRM and other groups over the past decade, most recently as part of the HRMbyDesign Downtown Plan public engagement process from 2007-09. That resulted in a vision for the Interchange being embedded in the Downtown Halifax Secondary Municipal Planning Strategy.

This exercise will build on those discussions and visions to look at site redevelopment at a finer level of detail exploring transportation, engineering, urban design and financial requirements, in tandem, for the first time. This comprehensive analysis will then be utilized to inform Council and public discussions as to the practical future of the Cogswell Interchange and associated lands.
