Its actually a very big building. The scale here is misleading, as it is surrounded by the 2 largest buildings in the country.

Excellent Halifax: a good canyon + the hill + the crack of ocean view - A+.

That Sherbrooke St. one really does it for me more than any of the other ones. Not so much a canyon as a streetwall though.

Holy crap, what are those red scaffoldings for above the old hard rock cafe? Another new building or increased height for that lot (for digital advertising)?

It's for a billboard apparently. I know for sure it's a billboard...not for what.

That Rene Levesque Canyon is just fantastic. Of course when I lived there, that same section was a no-mans' land of parking lots and hardscrabble. And some shitty gasoline stations.

The new R-L canyon is great. I enjoy walking through it, although the street and sidewalk are a total re-do.
