The Hydrostone District consists of ten parallel streets bordered by Duffus Street, Young Street, Isleville Street, and Novalea Drive in Halifax's North End. In recent years the neighbourhood has gentrified and is sought after by young professionals and families due to its proximity to services and ample green spaces. Most of the dwellings are row houses in clusters of four or six, with two-storey single family homes at the Eastern end of each street.

History of The Hydrostone

Following the Halifax Explosion, restoration efforts included the construction of a new residential neighbourhood, the Hydrostone. Designed by urban planner Thomas Adams with architecural design by Monteal firm Ross and Macdonald, the neighbourhood was the first government assisted housing project in Canada.

Most of the buildings in the Hydrostone were built to minimize the destruction caused by fires, so were constructed using a special type of cinderblock finished with crushed granite call hydro-stone.

Today, the Hydrostone is a beautiful district, designated by Parks Canada as a Federal Heritage Site. The Hydrostone Market, containing many beloved shops and eateries, makes the districts a popular destination for Halifax locals and visitors alike.
