The future of the the Bayers Lake Industrial Park (BLIP) may look something like this.
(Click Picture to Enlarge)
The questions I ask
- Can the BLIP handle the traffic? The Washmill Lake overpass wasn’t really a solution as executed.
- What will happen to the space left by Costco, Kent and WalMart abandoning their current stores?
- Is there a need to develop this space at all?
- Does this hurt the revitalization of downtown ?

Of course none of this is confirmed.
Also now rumoured to be coming are Forever 21, Marshalls, Marks & Spencers, Top Shop, JC Penney
I have also heard that Structube, Crate & Barrel and something from the Pottery Barn, Williams Sonoma family
though I can’t see why a US retailer would make it’s entry point in Halifax, it may make sense for a European based retailer though
