The Tramway Building is, architecturally, pretty unique in Halifax. I hope it gets restored. Theoretically that's what should happen since it's more than a century old and is in the middle of a heritage district..
Yes, it's startling how much detail has been lost over the years - I'm guessing it was removed due to crumbling/deterioration of the facing? Adding the brickwork at the bottom didn't really do it any favours either, as it doesn't match the rest of the building and tends to minimize its significance as an early concrete structure.
I agree that it would be a good candidate for restoration. Hopefully it happens.
