Property Development and Management
Real property development and management has become a significant focus for the Corporation. Following the transfer of the CBDC's assets, ECBC's property portfolio stands at approximately 12,000 acres.
Real property can be used as a development tool to complement funding programs. In addition to providing an incentive for further investment, proceeds from the sale of property are reinvested in funding programs to support other development activities.
As part of the land acquisition and disposal process, ECBC makes land available to businesses, organizations and the community in an effort to foster commercial and community economic development. In addition, the Corporation actively pursues real property acquisition opportunities that complement economic development activities.
Property Management Services
Property management services provide effective management of the Corporation’s real property assets including its four facilities:
- 70 Crescent Street, Sydney, NS
- MacDonald House, Sydney, NS
- 32 Paint Street, Port Hawkesbury, NS
- Point Edward Farm
ECBC selected the Boma BESt (building environmental standards) program to obtain green certification for its head office located at Crescent Street in Sydney. The guidelines in this process will assist the Corporation in reducing its energy consumption and carbon footprint. With four possible levels of certification, ECBC can progress through the program and continually use the framework of the Go Green Best Practices and the Go Green Plus assessment to improve environmental performance and management of its head office and other facilities.
