The recently demolished Tim Horton's lot on Wyse Road at Dawson Street has a HRM Planning case for a new Tim Horton's with a drive-thru and a 12 storey apartment building on top.

Interesting. Great use of the land, but I hope they have an equally great ventilation system for all of those idling pickups in the drivethrough.

This is the first time I've seen a drivethrough configured like this - is this common in other places?

New Drive-thrus will be banned when the Centre Plan becomes law.

What is that other larger building in the background of the rendering?

Wasn't there a 10 storey proposal for the old "little Nashville" site that was demolished a few years ago. Maybe that's the height position holder?

Yep, it was approved. Developer has a current proposal in with HRM to lower it to 6 storeys though. Apparently they've run the numbers and the new building code changes that allow 6 storeys of wood mean it'll be more profitable at 6 storeys than taller.

New drive-thrus would be banned in places that are zoned with package A (which includes this lot) but might not be in package B

Why do urban planners hate drive-thrus?

Speaking of this area, I noted the two empty buildings up the street from the old Little Nashville on Wyse heading north (the former Harvey's and the buy & sell place next door) are both for sale. Combined, that would make a good lot for another new development with a bit of height.
