1557 Hollis Street

Halifax, Nova Scotia

The 1.3 acres (0.5 hectare) Ralston Building site was acquired by Canada Lands Company in 2017, formerly owned by Public Services and Procurement Canada (PSPC).

The Ralston Building was previously occupied by the Canada Revenue Agency. CRA vacated the property in 2015 and relocated outside of the downtown area.

The property is strategically located in the central business district and has frontage on three major streets. The property is close to the waterfront and in an area that is experiencing significant development.

The property contains a 10-storey structure, constructed in 1955. The building, now vacant, contains a floor area of approximately 13, 935 m2 (150,000 sq. ft) and has parking for approximately 60 vehicles.

The consultation process for redevelopment of this site began in September 2018 and was completed in May 2019. Several public meetings took place where input from the public was provided to inform a preferred development concept. The demolition of the current aging structure began in July 2019 and will be completed prior to the sale of the property. The transaction is anticipated to close in March 2020.
