The future of the the Bayers Lake Industrial Park (BLIP) may look something like this.

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 ?


Link to Herald article by Colleen Cosgrove last year (http://thechronicleherald.mobi/business/28599-consultant-bayers-lake-big-boxes-likely-eyeing-expanded-park)

Of course none of this is confirmed.

EDIT: 10-10-12

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

Hey, like this? Why not share it with a buddy?
