Meanwhile, construction work on a six-storey, 44-unit flatiron-style building across from Citadel Hill, dubbed the Drum, will begin in May, Chedrawe said.
The developer plans to build $250,000-$600,000 condominiums on the site, which sits on a wedge of land near Centennial Pool, by Rainnie Drive, North Park Street and Cogswell Street.
Regional council removed a major hurdle to the development by amending the secondary municipal planning strategy and land-use bylaw that required ground-level landscaped open space for residential buildings.
Chedrawe said he plans to build a green space on the building’s rooftop.
“We were waiting for this one major amendment in the HRM by Design bylaw, which was passed by council last week, so now we’ll start planning the design work.”
