^Still trying to figure this one out. The ground floor outline appears to compliment the recently redone building to the left which implies its owned by the same developer but it is listed as a commercial project with no planned residential units.

I think this is a really bad idea, there are already too many houses and seadoos on the Dartmouth lakes.

It is the same developer as the other two buildings built on the same block over the last decade.

My thoughts as well. I didn't see it when I skimmed the article, but what happens to the wastewater from this house? Seems to me the Dartmouth lakes are already having problems with high bacteria counts - can't see this as improving the situation...

They don't have water/sewage hooked up, they mention that it could be hooked up to a neighboring property, probably across the road, I think all these water properties belong to the properties across the road.

Interesting - then without services they are just a large boat, not a house. In the real world, however, I am suspect as to how failsafe these hookups would be, especially when the lake freezes over in the wintertime. There's a reason why regular services must be dug below the frost line.

Anyone have any ideas or insider information?

Does anyone have any details from this meeting?

This is across the Oxford/Bayers Road intersection from the 3090 Oxford proposal.
I took a stroll the other evening down Oxford and see that the RCMP building has now been demolished. The building being used by CBSC, on the corner of Oxford and Bayers Road is still standing but is to come down next year after they vacate.

Anyone know what they are building beside the relocated Stadacona entrance (Gottingen and Almon)? In the Google Earth image from December 2017 there is a sizable building foundation under construction.

I heard it is a drill shed. I drove by last night, they are putting the exterior on, it looks like it will be a pre-cast warehouse.

Most Halifax cranes halted as operators strike

Quote:
Most of the cranes in Halifax will be still for the next few weeks as their operators take to the picket line, likely delaying major projects like Queen’s Marque.

More than 100 members of the Operating Engineers, Local 721 in Halifax and across mainland Nova Scotia walked off the job Wednesday in a legal strike.

The empty lot on Kemp south of Kia has been cleared of cars and construction fencing has started to go up. I think a new VW dealership is planned here, there was a story about it a few years ago when Hillcrest became part of the O’Regan’s group.

What O'Regans really need to do is relocate their GM dealership from the ancient location on Robie to something new in a location like this. But the VW dealer facility is also ancient and small, so it seems likely this is what is happening here.

Not sure if this has been posted yet or whether there's more info but I noticed this earlier today, a redevelopment plan for the Tramway Building. It looks like they are retaining the facade and possibly some aspects of the interior/structure, keeping the ground floor commercial and converting the upper floors to residential, adding a 2-storey residential addition for a total of about 52 [edit: 32] units. Notably, there doesn't seem to be any parking included (unless the existing building already includes a parkade)/ I guess this is probably the case for a lot of existing apartment units downtown, especially above street level on streets like Barrington:

In other news, large slabs of the granite trim on the old WTCC have been removed.

Interesting find. Thanks for posting. 52 units is a lot for a building that size. The floor plan shows that they will mostly be studios.
