The former Citadel Halifax Hotel has been demolished and the site has been redeveloped with an 18-storey apartment, 19twenty at Brunswick Heights. The residential tower is complete with gym facilities and retail spaces on the ground floor. The luxury suites feature large layouts and premium finishes.
The exterior façade of the building contains traditional building materials such as brick, stone and curtain wall to tie into the surrounding buildings. However, the building will command attention with its contemporary features including a composite metal panel system and coloured balcony glazing, adding a modern flair to the residential building.
Bird worked closely with the client to refine the design of the buildings and interior layouts in tandem with construction. While this method often produces a better result for the client and end users, it often leads to schedule slippage. However, Bird’s unwavering ability to lead its team through significant changes ensured the building was completed on time and on budget for the tenants to move in.
