The developer of the popular ‘Spice’ Condos is breaking ground on his new condo development ‘Q Lofts’. The development will be situated on a half acre block on the cusp of the hip Central Halifax/North End area at Roberts and James streets. These two level, open concept condos will introduce Halifax to a more modern approach to condo living with soaring 16 foot ceilings, large windows and balconies off most units. Peter Polly described the interiors of ‘Q Lofts’ to All Nova Scotia “Designer kitchens and bathrooms, quartz and marble countertops, high-end stainless steel Energy Star appliances, imported Italian stainless steel stairs and glass railings…” and this is just the standard finishes. They are also planning to achieve the LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) designation through pouring thick concrete and using better insulation than commonly found in buildings. The building itself will also be excellently appointed with amenities such as a two rooftop patios, common rooms, a gym and underground parking for all 72 condos.
