This reminds me a lot of Midtown North and in fact is a common plan these days in many cities for this kind of medium-sized development.

This is more of a site plan and massing diagram than a rendering of how the buildings look so it's too early to comment on the aesthetics.

It won't take many of these to bring up the population density on the peninsula. I wonder what the population is in 2019. People have been saying something like 70,000 for many years and I think that number is probably outdated. I doubt even the 2016 census numbers are very accurate.

I like it... I wonder if Halifax Transit is taking all these new developments into consideration and modifying their transit plans.... this and the 2 Windsor and Young projects (across the street from one another) will put a lot of population in a small area... will this be part of their plans with a Transit oriented corridor (BRT) with a station for this area...

The Bayer Rd side should be terraced instead of just a big flat wall.
