That reminds me of the Glubes Loft townhouse site, which looked horrible for a long time as they were doing renovations behind the old facade. It can be hard to make predictions based on how something looks mid-renovation.
Like I said, I'm mostly impressed with how quickly Gottingen is evolving. If it takes off I think it could really add a lot to the city, particularly if it is tied back in with the downtown core (we are already getting a bit of that with projects like the Citadel Hotel). I'd love to see Halifax as a more mid-sized city with a variety of vibrant neighbourhoods and a bigger, busier downtown core.
