The proposal was not approved according to the minutes of the Halifax West Community Council meeting November 14, 2018, found here: https://www.halifax.ca/sites/default...14hwccMins.pdf

The minutes show that staff has been directed to " consult with the developers to seek amendments to the proposed development agreement for Case 20417 to limit the height of the proposed development so that it does not exceed the roofline of St. Patrick’s Church, and return with a supplementary staff report outlining the terms of any amended development agreement."

I was not able to find status of the supplementary report online.

So it would be 4 floors instead of 11?

If they keep the same floor-to-floor heights, it looks like it could be seven (instead of 13)... This is based on the elevations shown here: https://www.halifax.ca/sites/default...Elevations.pdf

7 would exceed, 6 would be just below the roofline.

What do you consider to be the roofline? Ridge of the church roof?

I'm generally pro-height but I'm actually okay with keeping the church spire the highest thing on this block--especially when the alternative is something as bland as this proposal.

Of course, that presumes the church doesn't fall down. It looks this close to being a ruin at the moment.

I agree. Not all that enthused with this proposal.

When I was at the church during Doors Open a couple of years ago, the pastor told me that they had taken some of the granite fixtures down from the steeple to reduce load on the structure, but that they had a plan to fix it. Has that not progressed? It would be a shame, as the church is quite gorgeous inside, and is of a type of construction that will likely never be built again. Was also talking to an accomplished organ player who said the organ there is very special, as in high quality (I'm not an expert on church organs so I will defer to his opinion).
