Halifax, Nova Scotia (July 30, 2020) – McInnes Cooper is pleased to announce its continued commitment to Purdy’s Wharf on the Halifax Waterfront.
“We have made a significant investment in our Halifax office space to ensure we have a place where clients and employees enjoy spending time, and we will continue to call Purdy’s Wharf our home as we move forward,” said Kevin Kiley, Managing Partner, McInnes Cooper.
The decision to extend the firm’s lease beyond 2030 with landlord, GWL Realty Advisors, will also see the tower the firm occupies renamed “McInnes Cooper Tower – Purdy’s Wharf”. “We are confident in the location and all that it presently has, and will in the future have, to offer. We are excited to put our name on it, “said Kiley.
Purdy’s Wharf is an iconic part of the capital’s striking skyline. It will benefit in the future from close proximity to Granville Park and the new neighbourhood born from the Cogswell District Redevelopment Project. Available tenant amenities such as onsite covered parking, access to transit, childcare and gym facilities are just some of the reasons McInnes Cooper is excited to continue its tenure at the Purdy’s Wharf complex overlooking the Halifax Harbour.
“On behalf of the ownership group, we are thrilled to renew our relationship with McInnes Cooper at Purdy’s Wharf and to rename the tower they occupy. Significant investment has been made to ensure this property remains a sustainable and captivating environment that is ahead in the marketplace,” said Pascale Roy, Vice President, Asset Management, GWL Realty Advisors.
Having undergone a series of revitalization projects, including the addition of destination dispatch elevators and new HVAC controls for improved air quality, Purdy’s Wharf continues to add value to the Downtown Halifax Business district.
