Many great buildings are a bit confusing though. I like this.
That tree branch is falling from the sky. These design photos were done during a recent wind storm.

Whatever planet RYANPATRICK was visiting us from, they apparently have weird shaped "podiums".

(this proposal looks nothing like any podiums on earth I've ever seen...)

I believe RyanPatrick was RyeJay, he said something naughty on the Canada forum and has been banned. The mods must have discovered his new nom de plume and banned him again.........

Too bad. I thought he had mellowed noticeably over the past couple of years.

He made some douchey homophobic remark to someone in the Canada forum, which is kinda funny because I thought Ryejay was gay? Anyways it looks like he couldn't wait for his suspension to be over.. too bad.

The comment was deleted. All I can say on the matter is RyeJay made a joke about someone's sexuality for which SSP has a 0% tolerance (a large percentage of our posters are openly gay). This is after plenty of warnings by moderators in the Canada section. He then created a second account during his suspension and the decision was made to ban him.

i may have disagreed with some of his views but he wasnt as bad a wespidel thats for sure.
I can understand the 0 tolerance though, everyone should atleast be mindful of the posts you type and how it pertains to citys made of skyscrapers

Lol, I thought that banned status was a joke... he certainly was a bit much at points, but its all about balance.

Whoa, some of the old names mentioned makes me remember when people were posting on both SSP and SSC... apparently its still active: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...386681&page=15

I don't know the status of the project (design review committee approved it, no?), but when a developer is trying to tear down three listed heritage buildings, I guess he should expect some red tape and opposition. That's not a Halifax-specific thing. What is a Halifax-specific thing is that whenever any tiny little hold-up in a project occurs, developers can go boo-hoo-ing to the press and get a sympathetic hearing, making the public feel like the heritage lobby is somehow enormously powerful in the city--when really, they're not.

I don't know, Dry. I don't like this lack of transparency and any heritage behind-the-scenes politicking. It's not only undemocratic, but pretty elitist BS, and a problem with how this city has been run for so long.

The story has a ring of truth about it, because it's not the first time something like this has happened. If some bureaucrats sympathetic or connected to Heritage Activists are holding things up, then I'm not sure what recourse a citizen has other than bringing the story to media. Those holding things up *should* be blasted; it's not how the process is supposed to work.

If heritage promoters have a problem with HRMxD or the CDAC process, then they should run for office, build a coalition, change the rules, the way HRMxD became law. Don't lobby behind the scenes with their NIMBY pals in the HRM government.

The reason why Heritage Lobby is not *politically* powerful in Halifax is because of their own stupidity-- opposing things that need not be opposed, being completely uncompromising, and being generally useless in actually building or preserving heritage.

This project is case and point. They even opposed the FULL restoration and preservation of the Merrill Lynch Bank building. Idiots.
