Halifax’s first hospice residence is closer to becoming a reality.

Hospice Halifax obtained a $4.2 million repayable bridge loan that allowed for the demolition, and current construction, of 618 and 620 Francklyn Street.

Renovators Resources Inc. led a professional salvage operation in June and July 2017 to carefully dismantle any salvageable materials inside the two buildings. The materials will ultimately find new purpose in other construction, renovation, or decorative projects in Halifax and Nova Scotia.

Construction work on Francklyn Street is underway. The goal is to open a beautiful new hospice residence to families in fall 2018.
