Paint it another colour! Possibly project images onto the blank wall from the roof of Maxwell's at night. Something has to be done.

There are so many visible blank walls that could be turned into something interesting and unique. This could be a real step to beautifying downtown.

We have some beautiful murals downtown now (by freak lunchbox and stubborn goat come to mind). Surely one would fit there as well.

It's an interesting candidate for a big mural for sure.

The rendering for this development on Agricola includes a mural: http://www.metronews.ca/content/dam/...als-1-copy.jpg

The 2 Purdy's Wharf Towers still are the most iconic on the skyline.

That might have to do with their position in the foreground when viewed from downtown Dartmouth.

I agree. I can't recall hearing anybody say they don't like them. They are in a prominent location, but over and above they are just an attractive design. They have aged well also, both from an appearance (durability) point of view and from a design perspective - to me they never look old.

Great shot! But sheesh, could the Law Courts be any more drab?

I agree on the Law Courts. I thought I had seen years ago talk about redeveloping that site... It is an ugly concrete block...

It should be removed entirely and relocated elsewhere. Aside from being drab and dreary it is an impediment to the waterfront experience.
