The Martello

Named after a military tower in Point Pleasant Park, The Martello on Dresden Row lords over Spring Garden Road and surrounding environs, providing the residents of its condominiums easy access to Halifax's most fashionable shops and finest restaurants. Billed for its "luxury," The Martello can also lay claim to "location."

Sitting in the heart of the South End’s commercial district not only gives its residents easy, just-a-stroll-away, access to most of Halifax’s cultural and epicurean attractions, but also provides those living on the spacious upper floors with incredible panoramic views of the harbour, Public Gardens, Citadel Hill and cityscape beyond. The Martello also sits atop the high-end Park Lane Shopping Centre and its eight-screen movie theatre.

Did we mention “location?” Could access to shopping, dining and entertainment get any easier?
