We are very pleased to inform you that TD Centre redevelopment construction will commence on Monday, September 10, 2012 with the installation of construction barriers on Granville Street. When completed the TD Centre will be Halifax’s biggest Class A, LEED® Gold (Core and Shell), Smart Building. (LEED: Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design)
As well, we improved our web site so you may be continuously updated on important project developments. Please see details at www.TDCentreHalifax.com (additional information follows).
Construction barriers being installed on Granville Street starting September 10
On Monday, September 10, workers will begin placing concrete safety barriers down the middle length of Granville Street from George Street north to the end of the Macara-Barnstead Building-CIBC property line. During construction, the barriers will separate vehicular traffic on the east side from construction material deliveries and related activity on the west side.
Vehicular traffic in this area will be reduced to one lane of northbound traffic and parking will be suspended during the construction period that is scheduled to be completed in 2014. Pedestrians will have access to the full length of the east sidewalk on Granville Street, with the west sidewalk open for use from the Macara-Barnstead Building-CIBC property line north to Duke Street.
Current courier access to the TD Centre will be maintained at the corner of George and Granville streets.
Safety barrier placement will take two to three days, will be conducted during business hours (7am to 5pm), and will remain on Granville Street for the duration of the construction process.
Macara-Barnstead building modification, façade preservation
The TD Centre redevelopment will include a preserved and restored Macara-Barnstead building façade that is thoughtfully incorporated into a new streetscape along Granville Street. Project Construction Manager, EllisDon Corporation, will oversee the installation of façade retention bracing on the Macara-Barnstead building and the building’s modification to accommodate the redevelopment. Restorative masonry work on the façade will be conducted later in the construction project.
Lydon Lynch’s streetscape design approach integrates heritage character with the TD Centre redevelopment’s modern architecture and urban design.
TD Centre Redevelopment
You may recall that the redevelopment project received unanimous approval from the HRM Heritage Advisory and Design Review committees in 2011.
The project will double the TD Centre’s current floor space to 200,000 sq. feet including three more floors. Designed by Lydon Lynch Architects, the project aims to attain a LEED® Gold (CS) certification making it the biggest and newest Class A Smart Building in Halifax when it opens in 2014.
The building’s new systems will reduce operating costs making gross rent very competitive, generate lower emissions, and give tenants more and better control over air quality and other environmental systems.
A larger, smarter, refreshed and energy-efficient TD Centre will also support Nova Scotia’s economic success, help revitalize the downtown core and will provide you with workspace that is among the best in the region.
