They handle the regrading of the interchange very nicely.
Yeah they are. I'm sorry for the confusion. Each intersecting line would be likely I traffic light. There is one problem now with the east end:
International Place will be a leader in environmental technologies while incorporating a contemporary 21st century design. Floor-to-ceiling glass windows, with panoramic waterfront and harbour views will make this building a joy to occupy giving visitors a beautiful view of what Halifax has to offer. The 22-storey flatiron-inspired design, to be built with a goal of attaining a LEED Gold standard, balances soft lines of transparent glass with the rhythm and scale of adjacent historical Granville Mall and is respectful of near-by historic property.
A gateway to downtown Halifax, International Place has a direct link to the downtown pedway system and all public transportation routes. It will occupy a footprint of approximately 24,000 square feet at its base and will be situated on what is known as the “triangle lands”, the north end of Granville Mall adjacent to Barrington Place. Its central location is within steps of abundant restaurant, retail and entertainment offerings, including the World Trade and Convention Centre, Scotia Square, Casino Nova Scotia, Historic Properties and the Halifax Metro Centre.
