The Gateway to the Annapolis Valley
Glooscap Landing is a highway retail business centre located at Exit 8A on Highway 101 in Kings County, Nova Scotia. The 26-acre plot of land is entrenched in the history and legends of Glooscap, a Mi’kmaq spiritual leader. Throughout history this region has been an attraction for tourists and locals interested in agriculture, sea tides, and the cultures of the Acadians, Planters, Loyalists, African Nova Scotians, and Mi’kmaw people. Glooscap Landing is owned by the Glooscap First Nation community located 10km away and the purpose of Glooscap Landing is to create more employment, resources, and general economic prosperity to Glooscap and the surrounding communities.
In the spring of 2018 Glooscap Landing opened its first business facility, an Esso gas station and Tim Hortons coffee shop. A recent feasibility study conducted by Stantec Consulting in conjunction with Altus Group has determined retailers on this property would enjoy a competitive advantage in relation to other retail centers located along the 101 highway. The project is being developed in three phases; with the gas bar/convenience store being the first to be built.
Phase two of the project will include a market at Glooscap Landing, and will include retail opportunities for a seafood outlet, local valley produce, a bistro, along with local arts and crafts.
Though the use of a cultural centre and traditional village, phase three of Glooscap Landing will be designed to attract and educate visitors on the valleys heritage of Mi’kmaq, Acadian, and African Canadian, along with the other diverse cultures that make up the mosaic of the Annapolis Valley.
We are currently working on a leasing portfolio which will be available for individuals and businesses who are interested in leasing space within the upcoming market development as well as additional land holdings within Glooscap Landing. This will be listed under the "Opportunities" page.
Glooscap Landing is conveniently located off Highway 101. Take Exit 8A if coming from Halifax or Yarmouth.
