Former School Board Office For Sale

December 9th, 2019

PORT HASTINGS, N.S. – The Municipality of the County of Inverness is selling the former headquarters of the Strait Regional School Board (now the Strait Regional Centre for Education). Interested parties can view information on the build here: CLOSED

The 7,900 sq. ft. building, which sits on 7 acres of land in beautiful and friendly Port Hastings, was originally built in 1963 as a school and later converted into an office building complete with a large parking lot, a reception area and lobby, a large board room, two kitchenettes, a fully-functioning water heater and 15 office spaces. The building has full three-phase electrical hook-up as well as access to municipal sewer and water services and local community transportation services. It has been well-maintained throughout the years and requires minimal updating, with great potential for development.

Port Hastings is the main gateway to Cape Breton and is a central point for the Strait of Canso area of Nova Scotia. “It is an exciting time to live and work in Inverness County, and many businesses could thrive at the location in Port Hastings,” said Keith MacDonald, CAO of the Municipality of the County of Inverness. “It’s the iconic gateway to the rest of the Island.”

Inspection is by appointment only. To schedule an appointment and for more information, please call Debbie Nicholson at 902-787-3501.
