Dartmouth, Nova Scotia
The "Penhorn Lands" is a 31 acre development site located at the intersection of Highway 111 and Portland Street in Halifax (Dartmouth), Nova Scotia that was purchased from Empire in 2016. The site is adjacent to Penhorn Plaza, a Crombie-owned 104,000 square foot Sobeys-anchored retail plaza. Management expects to undertake the development in two phases. Phase I involved partial demolition of a former Sears store with redevelopment into approximately 43,000 square feet of commercial space on 4.88 acres of the 31 acre development site. This commercial redevelopment fronts on Portland street and is designed to integrate with the abutting Penhorn Plaza. Demolition began in spring of 2018, followed by redevelopment of the remaining structure into new commercial units, with occupancy at the end of 2018.
Crombie has initiated pre-planning activity for future mixed use residential development (phase II) on the remaining 26 acres.
