Wonderful shots, Martin. I nominate this photo for "Most Beautiful Residential Vista in Canada."

Montreal has the best residential bones in the country by a mile.

There's new streetview imagery for Halifax so I captured a few views of the North End, the part of the peninsula north of downtown. It is often ramshackle but I think it is architecturally diverse and charming. There are a lot of North End streetscapes that would be hard to confuse with any other city. The area has been getting a lot busier over the last few years; empty lots are filling with buildings and old commercial spaces are filling up with new businesses.

Agricola Street
















There are some great old buildings next to awful newer buildings, mostly from the 1980-2005 dark age of architecture


Gottingen Street, the main commercial area for the neighbourhood




There are some leafy residential areas too




Still a lot of parts that would look better with 1-2 new buildings






This is a 2 km trip along Gottingen Street from downtown

Wow the North End is a lot different now than I remember it in the vacant, depressed '90s. This area has great bones.

I wouldn't say by a mile and frankly disagree. Toronto's semis are almost in a forest like setting, while still being ultra urban, best of all worlds, highly livable. Ultimately a matter of preference.

I almost confused that last Hali set with TO with the busy and diverse streetscape.

Calgary's skyline and central neighbourhoods look great from the air.

This though? Goddamn. It's the absolute worst neighbourhood I can remember seeing in a long time. Look at the distance between some of these houses. You could have your friend living 50m away, but to drive there, it may take you 15 minutes due to complete suburban fuckery. And it doesn't look like you could just walk there either due to the highway/freeway.

These kinds of developments are offense to me. Like, can we not build houses on the same amount of land without making it as complicated as possible?
