Explore the excitement just out side your door
Discover the gaslight district.
Situated in historic downtown Galt, The Gaslight District will be home to residential, commercial, retail, art, dining, community and culture. Here, live, work, learn and play co-exist to create something truly spectacular.
The Gaslight District pays homage to Cambridge’s historic presence during the 1800’s when the streetscapes were graced with the soft luminance cast from the warm glow of gas lampposts crafted by the former Galt Gas Light Company.
Today, The Gaslight District is envisioned to be a thriving hub in a revitalized urban core, graced with the same vintage details from its former days.
Historic Roots Meet Modern Amenities
For over one hundred years, Southworks has been integral to Galt. It first served as a Foundry and later became home to a collection of shops such as the Southworks outlet and antique mall.
Now the location is set to develop into the anchored centre of the Gaslight District. While the majority of the original stone buildings will be lovingly restored, two new residential towers will be built, and together they will enclose a public square faced with boutiques, galleries, and restaurants.Discover the History
