Yeah, it's looking pretty sharp!

The modern base on the downhill side isn't that great either. I think, as it was pointed out above, that this is a case of detailing and not entirely low-effort modern versus low-effort recreation. I think EITHER a nice modern base OR a nice recreation base would have been better. Basic massing and window patterning is fine, it falls down in the details.

Does anybody know what's happening in the retails storefronts of the Roy?

There's a full block of under construction and recently completely or renovated storefronts along Barrington. On the one hand it's good to see so much development, but on the other hand a large portion of the retail strip has been out of commission for years.

And I'm sure most of it will stay that way for years. HRM has and continues to make going downtown almost unbearable unless you are on foot or a cyclist.

There was a self promotion type article in the Herald this weekend. They said this is finally opening next week.
