Cogswell Lands Development

Status: Ongoing

UDI supports HRM’s plan to redevelop lands currently occupied by the Cogswell Interchange. However, we have some concerns about the viability of the project to self-fund, and about the ability of the market to absorb so much new real estate (residential and commercial) in a short time-frame. UDI has commissioned reports by leading planner Ken Greenberg and local firm Turner Drake, and continues to work with HRM to explore issues raised by these reports.
