"The project vision combines a lifestyle centre - urban village feeling with world class architecture and construction quality. King's Wharf will offer Dartmouthians, residential purchasers, workers, shoppers, tourist visitors and Nova Scotians the opportunity to enjoy a world class, legacy development … 'one of a kind in Canada.'"

The development concept currently envisions:

* 1200 residential condominiums
* 200 room Hotel and Convention Center
* Hotel condominium suites
* 100,000 SF of mixed retail shopping
* 40,000 SF of commercial space.
