Right, but talking about generalities will not likely progress 'this' discussion.

However, it doesn't appear that it will progress anyhow as all I'm hearing is crickets...

Got a good look at the crane tonight. I do not see where this one has the ability to self jack. I'm with the previous poster, that this doesn't seem tall enough for the floors that are planned.

Given that HRM is seemingly made of money these days I'm surprised he isn't still arguing for this. But I'm glad he has admitted defeat.
It's very important this project move forward - it's important for certain members of city council to understand there is job is NOT to stop development in the city.

Why has so much tax money and staff time been spent over the years sawing off development proposals generally, not just the previous ones proposed for this site which went through an absurd process of proposal/counter proposal for years over a couple of floors that once built, nobody would have even noticed. It is unchecked planning theory run amok, fuelled in part by many militant urban planners in an oversized and poorly managed hrm planning dept..
great post!
