14 2128 Brunswick Street, Halifax, NS (MLS® 202319547): The Church of Holy Redeemer, now known as The Marley, in Halifax, Nova Scotia, is a historic gem that beautifully balances the past and the present. The building was designed by architects John A. Mitchell and Edward Elliot in 1874, who also crafted the Point Pleasant Gates and Halifax City Hall, and has played a significant role in the city's architectural heritage. However, the church faced financial difficulties in the 1880s, and the Halifax Explosion of 1917 caused severe damage and demolished the spire. By 1941, its congregation had dwindled, leading to its sale in 1949. It later served as a social center for St. Patrick's Church. In 1984, the church underwent a transformation into 17 condominiums, aptly named "The Marley" in honor of Bob Marley who passed away during the planning process. This renovation preserved its ecclesiastical appearance and parapet gables. Today, it stands as a remarkable example of adaptive re-use, retaining its Gothic-Revival and Romanesque architectural elements. The Marley serves as a testament to Halifax's resilience and commitment to preserving its history while adapting to modern life. Unit 14 offers a unique living experience with its loft-style design, original character, and abundant natural light. Located just a short walk from downtown Halifax, it provides easy access to the city's vibrant dining scene and beautiful waterfront. Embrace the opportunity to own a piece of Halifax's history at The Marley.
