That's a really great shot of Halifax, that section looks to be very dense. I really like the mix of buildings from this angle as well!

But we do see the main cluster and the largest towers which look cut off and stumpy in that shot.

Agreed, I like that shot of Halifax! Looks dense and good mix of buildings. Hopefully the city and area continue to grow and become more and more of an anchor for Atlantic region.

They are cut off. It's a picture taken with Le Plateau in the foreground. Downtown is on lower ground than the Plateau. It does create the illusion that the towers are slightly shorter than they really are. I think it's a great and unusual picture because of the angle, even if it somewhat undermines the downtown skyline.

It's definitely getting there, and the new buildings being built there now are a lot nicer than the new construction from 10+ years ago.

Unless something dramatic changes, there's another new crop of 3-4 major buildings that is coming for this area in the next couple of years. After that there won't be much land left for highrises in this part of downtown, but some new land will open up to the north as the Cogswl interchange gets torn down.

I've seen it that way before. It was terrible. Those new towers have been a game-changer.
