site Description
351 Water Street is the first new office building on Water Street in more than 25 years. It’s the first building in Newfoundland and Labrador to be heated and cooled by sea water. And it’s the first to host a private sector juried art commission. 351 is a contemporary six-storey, 168,000 square foot office tower above prime retail and commercial space with a 445-car parkade which includes 245 public parking spaces. The building was designed to balance the old with the new; to reflect the heritage of Water Street while incorporating the most modern of technologies.

351 is the first building in Newfoundland and Labrador to be heated and cooled by sea water. Based on an innovative system developed by East Port for their Purdy’s Wharf complex in Halifax, it uses the natural thermal energy of the tides that flow near the building to heat and cool the building. The big advantage of this, aside from the obvious environmental benefits, is that 351’s tenants have lower energy and operating costs.

351 has been designed to provide the most healthy and human environment possible.
- High-quality fresh air is provided through a dedicated outdoor unit
- Enhanced day lighting
- Lockers and shower facilities for tenants
- Flexible workspace to match users’ needs
- Active building management – all concerns and issues are taken seriously and dealt with in a timely fashion

East Port hosted the first private sector juried art commission in Newfoundland and Labrador to create a piece of public art to be incorporated into 351. This piece, the Black Island Punt by Newfoundland artist, Will Gill, is on permanent display in the lobby of 351.
