Phase 13-1 Burnside Industrial Park

The supply of industrial employment lands is a key priority outcome of Halifax Regional Council under Economic Prosperity. The Business/Industrial Parks of the Halifax Regional Municipality are one of HRM's largest commitments to the economy of the region. HRM ensures a supply of competitively priced industrial and related commercial lands for business attraction, growth and expansion. View HRM’s 2020 Industrial Employment Land Strategy.

In response to surging industrial land demand, Phase 13 Burnside Park is currently under construction and is planned to be developed in three sub-phases: Phase 13-1; Phase 13-2; and Phase 13-3.

The construction tender for Phase 13-1 was awarded in October 2021 with work scheduled to be complete in Fall 2023. Phase 13-1 is the largest the three sub-phases and includes key infrastructure that will service all three phases. Phase 13-1 comprises approximately 120 net acres of industrial lot inventory, streets and services including natural gas, power, and communications.
