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

Hospice Halifax recently obtained a $4.2 million repayable bridge loan that will allow the demolition and construction of 618 and 620 Francklyn Street to begin. We have obtained the necessary demolition permit and expect to start on July 24, 2017.

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

Construction is expected to wrap up by summer 2018. The goal is to open a beautiful new residential hospice to families in late 2018.
