Approved.....

"Killam's Governor's Plaza development approved for downtown Halifax
The eight-storey residential building will go up next to a heritage property and behind the Alexander, both also owned by Killam."

Looks like a solid addition to the area. Fingers crossed they don't cheap out on the exterior stone, could really make or break this one.

This area has a lot of potential. It has tons of character, but a few big holes and a few plain looking buildings which I assume are neglected rentals. One example is the beige box across the street from the building torn down for Flynn Flats. If that were given the "Forbes" treatment it would look great.

Originally the brewery redevelopment plan also included "Halkirk House", a 4-5 floor house-like building that would go between Keith Hall and Weir House, and the reconstruction of the fourth floor mansard roof on Keith Hall.

Last I checked, the development agreement for the whole site still had the requirement for the mansard roof on Keith Hall. I wonder if it will actually get done.

Apparently Forbes is retiring!

I didn't get a good look but there was an excavator digging at the site when I drove by this afternoon.

The elevations posted earlier explicitly label the main part of the front facade of this as "stone masonry". I'm eager to see how it turns out, along with the one across the street.

False alarm. They were just levelling it out so they could put a mobile crane in today.

This looks like an excellent project. Too bad it doesn't appear to be starting imminently.

On the one hand, I'm very ready for a break from construction in my neighbourhood. On the other hand, I can't wait to see this one get built. I wish they would get started on it now so that the construction mess could overlap with Flynn Flats as much as possible.

That looks like it should flow well with the streetscape. Looking forward to seeing this one move forward.
