District 6 is made up of both busy commercial areas and vibrant residential neighborhoods. It is home to approximately 25,000 residents and a growing, centrally-located urban business park.
Burnside Industrial Park is the largest business park north of Boston and east of Montreal, and along with the adjacent City of Lakes Business Park, houses nearly 2,000 enterprises and approximately 30,000 employees. The park is conveniently located within 10–15 minutes from downtown Halifax, the Halifax Stanfield International Airport, and the Port of Halifax. Burnside is extensively serviced by the C.N.R. mainline and is home to the largest concentration of truck transportation in Atlantic Canada. The district is also home to Dartmouth Crossing, a unique shopping destination featuring a mix of shops and services, big-box stores, restaurants, and a movie theatre.
