ABOUT THE NOVA EN SCOTIA

Built between 2000 and 2009, the Nova en Scotia is a solid concrete building – an attractive complex for students, city dwellers and young professionals. It is comprised of about 90 apartments on 13 different levels and also has a covered carpark.

The stylish entry is well-designed.  There are some black sofa chairs in this area for the residents or their visitors to have a seat and together with the huge windows, it seems to be a bright and welcoming area.  There is also an onsite manager available to ensure everything is in order.

The next bus station is just some steps away and you can get to the motorways only in a few minutes by car.
