The Story

The Nova Scotia Community College (“NSCC”) - Sydney Waterfront Campus Development project involves the construction of the new Nova Scotia Community College campus in the heart of downtown Sydney.

The new facility will feature a pedway crossing above the Esplanade and will have state-of-the-art learning spaces and community spaces; it will also include four buildings and will house approximately 1,400 students and 200 staff. Upon its completion, the NSCC Marconi Campus will relocate from its current location in Grand Lake to the new downtown Sydney campus. This project will enable new programming in an innovative and multi-functional space and will allow students to interact and collaborate more effectively.

The relocation will revitalize the downtown core of Sydney and accelerate the College’s strategy to expand the physical capacity of the campus in order to close the gap between the province’s supply and demand for skilled labour.
