The Maritime Centre in Downtown Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada is an office building, home to the regional telecommunications company Bell Aliant (formerly the Maritime Telegraph and Telephone Company, from which it is named). The main entrance to the building sits on the prominent corner of Barrington Street and Spring Garden Road.


The building is on the site of the former Capitol Theatre which was demolished in 1974 to make way for the construction of the present tower. Completed in 1977, the original structure had 14 stories; another seven floors were added in 1988. The building stands at 78 metres and has 21 floors, including the two retail levels. It is notable for the strong wind tunnel effect it creates at street level.

Maritime Centre was designed to avoid blocking the view from Citadel Hill to various parts of Halifax Harbour, hence the building's peculiar angle to the street.

On October 13, 2015, Fortis Inc. announced that it had sold its commercial real estate portfolio, including Maritime Centre, to Slate Office REIT.
