Demolished unfortunately. The picture reminds me of the "Old Halifax" that has been disappearing over the past 20 years. Ramshackle but charming.
Yes, I felt a loss when the Victoria Apartments building was torn down. Despite being rundown from lack of maintenance, it had a real presence and was an interesting window back in time to 'old Halifax'.

The link below has a lot of photos of the Victoria Apartments building and the Morris house as well:

The link to the Heritage Trust document containing the history of that building doesn't work on the web page above, but here is a direct link to the pdf. The story is on page 5:
