The rate of progress on this project has improved since the last photo in Feb 2017.

Steel has finally risen above the old facade. Hopefully the restoration work comes soon too.

I left Halifax in 1989. I'm pretty sure this saga was ongoing back then too......

I think the fire happened in 1994. There was also a fire a block away, and that lot eventually became Barrington Gate.

The Birks site was demolished around 1990 or so.

I think this is a case of something looking awful as its so run down, but once restored, it's going to look great and help maintain some of the historical and heritage dimensions of this important street.

I wish it were not so glacial in its development, but later is better than never, I suppose.

It has been slow on average but the progress lately has been quick. It looks very different even from the pictures from May.

This building looked so awful before that I think the new one will make a big positive difference on the street. The only remaining bad chunk of Barrington, aside from active construction sites, is the empty lot by the Dennis Building.
