2172 Gottingen St, Halifax, NS B3K 3B4, Canada


Gottingen Street opportunity. The original Peoples Bank of Halifax branch built on the site in 1890. Renowned local Architect James Charles Phillip Dumaresq built a new institution on the site in 1902. That building was either altered or rebuilt by the Bank of Montreal, as part of their takeover of interests in the Peoples Bank of Halifax. The current, purpose built bank now stands on the same site and functioned as the Gottingen Street Branch, until BMO moved their operation one half block north to their new branch at the corner of Gottingen at Cunard Street.
