When most people hear about the red hot condominium market in HRM, they generally think about condos in the city of Halifax. However, the condo market is getting pretty hot in Dartmouth, too.
Units in Founder’s Corner, one of downtown Dartmouth’s newest condo buildings, are all but sold out. And most condos in the first phases of the highly anticipated King’s Wharf project were presold.
“Location, location, location”—a key mantra of real estate professionals!

Billed as “luxury waterfront living,” by project developer Southwest Properties, Bishop’s Landing is located along Halifax’s famed boardwalk, said to be the longest urban boardwalk in the world. The interconnected buildings of Bishop’s Landing were designed to resemble the finger wharves of historic Halifax, while also creating wide-open public spaces between buildings that help provide water views to nearly every condo in the complex.
As one of Halifax’s most prestigious condominium buildings, units in Charter House for sale do not become available often, and when they do, they don’t go cheap.
And for good reason, as the building and units are beautifully constructed and well appointed, the amenities plentiful, and the location among the best in the city.
With its proximity to Dalhousie University and relative affordability, condominium units at Coburg Place for sale are popular with young professionals, students, and investors in search of income-generating properties.
Convoy Quay Gardens was a key component of the first phase of the redevelopment of the Bedford waterfront. And as such, its condominium units have long been in demand. In fact, all of the units in Convoy Quay Gardens first tower sold out prior to its completion in 2000, and presales in the second tower were so robust that construction began a year ahead of schedule.
Demand for units in Convoy Quay for sale remains strong, as evidenced by relatively quick turnaround sales times, and by average selling prices that have climbed more than 40 percent in the past 12 years.
For those looking for a mid-range priced condominium that is not quite in the city, but not quite out it either, the units at Crown Bay should be considered. While Crown Bay may lack the grandeur of some downtown condo buildings, its open concept units are modern in design and offer showcase appointments such as granite countertops, in-suite laundry, walk-in-closets, high ceilings, ceramic floors and stainless steel appliances.
And Bedford’s newest condominium—Dockside Waterfront Drive—offers residents the best of that small town atmosphere, as well as easy access to downtown Halifax and Dartmouth.
Located on the Bedford Basin, the luxurious waterfront condos offer outstanding views of the Basin, the harbour bridges and cities and harbour beyond. And while Halifax and Dartmouth may look far away, both downtowns are only a 20-minute drive, as is the Stanfield International Airport.
