The Hydrostone

Following the Halifax Explosion, restoration efforts included the construction of a new residential neighbourhood, the Hydrostone, the first government assisted housing project in Canada. The neighbourhood was designed by urban planner Thomas Adams with architectural design by the Montreal firm Ross and Macdonald. Most of the buildings in the Hydrostone were built to minimize the destruction caused by fires and were constructed with "hydro-stone", a special type of cinderblock finished with crushed granite. The Hydrostone consists of ten parallel streets bordered by Duffus Street, Young Street, Isleville Street, and Novalea Drive. 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 4 or 6 with two-storey single family homes at the eastern end of each street.
