Demo is moving quickly on this. The entire back section was gone as of Wednesday evening.

Sad to see this go but I think the new development will work great for the area.

Sad to see a ~1970s church hall that detracts from the architecture of the church itself go?

The new building is going to create a nice street wall down Brunswick.

The neighboring Sentry Place is having its footings shored up in the same manner as was done last year at the Pavilion project. But this work shouldn't take too long because there is only one level of underground parking.

Next will be to shore up the foundation along the back of the church, which will be a more delicate operation.

I could be wrong but I remember a story about an office building in Halifax going up with 1 extra floor beyond what was in the approved plans. I think it was this one.

This building also went up circa 2000, despite the fact that a bunch of Halifax media outlets used to claim things like "no new building was built downtown for 20 years". There was always some development, although the pace and quality were much lower in the 90's and early 2000's (there was tons of construction during the 80's boom that ended circa 1990). Barrington Gate is a 90's building. Examples from around 2000-2003 include the Four Points Sheraton and the Garden Crest buildings on Summer Street.

That was an exciting era for project financing. The boom in those decades was helped along by the tax code which allowed Limited Partnerships to pass along fast write-offs of "soft costs" and capital cost allowance to high marginal rate taxpayers. Silent investors in the 50% bracket were jumping into a lot of speculative projects excited about the tax break.

I understand the new St David's apartments will be built with only one underground level.

It looks like the Sentry Place also has only one underground but I have never been in the garage. I noticed they do have an additional parking garage entrance beside the one for the Cambridge Suites...not sure who it is for.
