Seton Ridge

Seton Ridge

Seton Ridge, Halifax’s Urban Village,  will be developed on the former Sisters of Charity Motherhouse site. This area is one of the largest development parcels near downtown Halifax, located just 2 km from the Halifax Peninsula above Mount Saint Vincent University and overlooking the Bedford Basin.

Project plans for this development are currently underway to create a vibrant, sustainable community.

The site plan proposes the development of 2,400 ± housing units, including 175 ± single-family dwellings.

A town centre will be located in the heart of the site, containing the highest buildings with over 31,000 ± sq ft of integrated podium retail. The centre plans feature restaurants, a wine bar, banks, and other small-scale retail which will meet almost every need of new residents and those in the surrounding communities.

Seton Ridge Development Plan

The multi-unit residential and mixed-use commercial and residential buildings are concentrated at the centre of the site, and range from 6 to 16 storeys in height.

The single detached dwellings are to be located at the periphery of the site.

A community centre is included as part of the proposal, within one of the mixed commercial-residential buildings. Its ownership and responsibility with regard to programming has yet to be determined.

The proposal includes several parks and public open and green spaces and fantastic views of the Bedford Basin and the city.
