The Gaslight District

Discover the 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.
