^ Exciting, this will be Hamilton's 2nd tallest.

Seems like there's a race for Hamilton 2nd tallest with a crowded field, Royal Connaught Phase 3, the Connolly, 45 King St (Krege's building), and we don't know the height of Television city yet but I'm willing to bet it's over 30 storeys.

Now if only we could get something taller than Landmark Place.

Ugh why do smaller centres like Hamilton and Halifax ignore their beautiful historic red brick architecture and turn their centres into some weird '80s/90s mashup of mediocre glass and precast towers?

Sure, some will complain Hamilton has too many bland commie blocks and needs more glass buildings to break it up. Than some will complain Hamilton is ignoring their red brick buildings, meanwhile the red brick building beside 20/22 George Street just got fully renovated.

I've always thought it would be really cool if the signal mast(s) lit up at night... not holding my breath on that one though. That would be an anachronism and we can't have that ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

(A part of me was also hoping they were permanently installing a giant weed leaf at the top of the Citadel on 4/20, but no such luck I guess.)

Is this a "new" mast or a replacement?

Not ignoring, just gave up on trying to suppress other architectural styles. A lot of the "heritage-friendly" (ie. brick facade, not too tall) developments in and around Downtown Halifax turned out pretty underwhelming at best and tend to just look like crap next to the actual heritage buildings. There are a few exceptions, but not many. I find the more contemporary glass buildings give a much nicer contrast even if they break from the "theme", and increasingly Downtown Halifax has a brick/masonry streetwall with mostly-glass additions above. If anything, granite, sandstone, ironstone and wood are probably more dominant "historic" building materials/cladding in the oldest parts of Halifax than red brick.

There are also a few red brick highrises and while a couple of them look pretty nice (compared to bare concrete) most of them turned out mundane at best.
