This won't single-handedly tie together downtown and the North End but it's probably the most important single building lot for doing that right now. Eventually the Staples will need to be redeveloped too for there to be a nice path between Brunswick and Gottingen, or Gottingen down Cogswell to Barrington once the interchange is redeveloped.

I often wonder how many visitors to Halifax think Cogswell is the edge of the inner city, and that there's not much to see on foot past that point. Halifax has a lot of great stuff that's somewhat hidden (Schmidtville or Falkland, Brunswick, the Jubilee area, or even areas like Dalhousie). I bet a lot of historic architecture or urbanism enthusiasts wander around downtown, think they've seen it all, and are missing about 60% of it.

This will be a nice visible addition to the skyline.

It reminds me of a hybrid Roy/Alexander.
Like always, it would be great if it were a bit taller.

I do like those exposed pillars at the bottom corner. Will lesson the massing at the street level.
