Town of Port Hawkesbury: Mixed Use Development Opportunity – Request for Expressions of Interest

The Town of Port Hawkesbury is soliciting Expressions of Interest (“EOI”) from qualified firms,
developers and/or institutions outlining their interest in the development of a vacant, brownfield, town-owned prime parcel of land located in the Town Centre hub along the primary highly travelled corridor that acts as a gateway to Cape Breton.

The 6.02-acre parcel of land for development, referred to as the “Site”, makes up a full town block encompassed by Pitt Street, Reeves Street and MacSween Street. The Site can accommodate approximately 320,000 sq. ft. of medium to high-density mixed-use commercial development (office, retail, hotel, residential). The Town of Port Hawkesbury will consider mixed and multi-use developments that are complimentary for the Site and surrounding uses and could proceed in full, or in a phased approach. Any development proposal for the Site will require stakeholder engagement with businesses and stakeholders within proximity of the development.

The Town of Port Hawkesbury is looking for respondents with the proven financial capacity and experience to submit high-quality conceptual design responses with a proposed sound business plan. The successful respondent will address urban design, land-use mix, business case, and partnership options. The following information is intended to establish key points & terms to be addressed within the EOI.
