Trendy Central Halifax

TRENDY CENTRAL HALIFAX (click for video)

Typically defined as south of North St. and as far down as the Commons and Citadel Hill, this area of Halifax has gone through extensive renovations in the last decade.   The area has been the favourite target of the popular fad of house flipping where older homes have been completely restored and updated to modern living spaces.

Previously the area had been allowed to become rundown and unappreciated by home owners.  Now the area has provided a convenient location for people looking to be close to downtown while also desiring more spacious living quarters.

The area’s prices have been escalating over the years, as the transformation continues, but still offers a viable option to relocating to the expensive South End.  Options available to home owners range from family homes, row houses to plenty of new condominium developments, especially in recent years.

Area Highlights:

  • Continuing re-development and escalation of value
  • Close proximity to downtown shopping and services
  • Catchment area of newly constructed Citadel High School
  • Halifax Commons
  • Citadel Hill
  • Trendy Agricola Street
