QUEENS COUNTY, N.S. — Plans are in motion to rebuild the iconic White Point Beach Resort in Nova Scotia, which was destroyed in a fire last month.
According to the Halifax-based Chronicle Herald, an estimated $4 million will be spent on the construction of the resort’s lodge, which will be designed with contemporary features. “The old lodge was pretty plain and was by no means an architectural wonder. We’re asking our team to come up with a design that captures the spirit of the memories so many people have of White Point,” Robert Risley, White Point owner, told the Herald.
WHW Architects of Halifax and J.W. Lindsay Enterprises will design and build the new lodge, which is expected to begin construction in the spring, but the hotel owners have also appealed for public feedback, too. Patrons can offer their design suggestions at whitepoint.com.
The hotel is expected to open in time for Nova Scotia Music Week in November.
