Cathedral Place Revitalization Project Moves Forward

Strong support from members of Synod who voted to approve proposal

Posted May 23, 2015

Delegates to Synod have voted to approve a multi-million dollar investment that will see Cathedral Place renewed through the addition of residential, community and retail space. 

 “The revitalization of James Street North has presented us with a huge opportunity to respond to the ministry needs of today in a way that is visionary, innovative and sustainable,” said Bishop Michael Bird in his message to Synod delegates.

The current development concept envisions the construction of a new building along with the renovation of the existing diocesan centre within five years. Christ’s Church Cathedral and the School House façade will remain unaltered, protecting the valuable heritage of the property. A triple-bottom line development approach consistent with our diocesan vision will ensure social, environmental and financial benefits flow from the project.
