Thanks for the photos. Looks like we'll get to see the cladding on this one relatively soon.

I am looking forward to visiting Halifax again and wandering around Spring Garden Road. It will be particularly impressive if construction begins on Clyde Street.

What a difference even these few floors made.

Can't wait to see cladding start to go up. This'll look great this summer!

If someone has the opportunity, it would be interesting to see a picture of this development at an angle which includes the new TD Bank in its view.

The new floors do add a lot to the scene. The CIBC building is ugly and low-slung but does not look so bad with something more substantial in behind.

I found this photo of the detours on Birmingham Street: http://www.flickr.com/photos/avardwo...n/photostream/

It's unusual to have two construction sites so close together like this. I guess Birmingham might soon have a third project on the go with the Clyde Street development. By then however the TD building will probably be done.

There we go! A shot that includes both developments!
Nice picture.

And we get to appreciate The Martello's height from this view.

Developer: City Centre Atlantic add to be done by year-end
February 6, 2012 - 6:56pm BY REMO ZACCAGNA BUSINESS REPORTER

Quote:
With construction on one project on schedule, a Halifax developer is preparing to break ground on another.

Work on the $18-million, five-storey addition to City Centre Atlantic on Dresden Row is slated to be completed by the end of the year, with occupancy beginning in the fall.

...

Meanwhile, Lawen said a marketing campaign, including pricing and layouts for the City Centre addition’s 96 units, would be launched within the next four to eight weeks.

“We actually have a lot of people inquiring without any signage,” he said.

“At this point, unless people know who we are, they don’t know where to call, so the moment we get a sign up I’m sure we’ll get a lot more inquiries.”

The company recently completed the concrete work, with the interior framing beginning shortly, he said.

“We’re basically hoping to start working on the envelope actually right now,” he explained.

“By fall we’ll have people moved in and by the end of the year we’ll be 100 per cent complete with construction.”

The most interesting part of that article, for me, is the angle from which the accompanying photo was taken. It doesn't show any of the building, just the crane. I find that kind of strange.

Thanks for the photos.

It's been great to watch this little part of the city lose its shabbiness and small town feel over the past few years. After the next round of infill this is going to be a great medium density district with lots of population, great retail, some interesting natural features (gardens, Citadel), and some interesting architecture (library, Lord Nelson, etc.).

Spring Garden Road is proof that the sky doesn't fall when you allow new buildings. The interesting parts of the neighbourhood are still there. It's just gotten better and is in more demand now than it's ever been.

So far, so good.

The view down Doyle Street towards this building is really interesting. In the foreground, there are little square rowhouses, and behind them are a few of the densest blocks in the city.
