Thanks for the update. The Gladstone Street project also includes a lowrise building at the Southern end of the site.

I can think of a few other small projects, such as the building by the Hydrostone Market and the building at the corner of Agricola and North. There's also a construction site for "Spice" at the corner of Barrington and Cornwallis (or some other street, just a little bit North of the downtown).

Another downtown project caught up in appeals is the Midtown development.

The South Street and South Barrington developments are a little further along now. I've never looked at the gladstone site before. It looks awesome.

Yeah, actually Gladstone is further along than in that pic right now. They have all 12 stories up on the first tower, and construction on the second is underway.

The new high school design has changed somewhat since I saw it last. It looks pretty good.

I wasn't aware that the Amalthea Centre one was actually able to get approval. The site was zoned institutional (hilariously enough, permitting something up to 10 storeys without the need for a development agreement) but many people were opposed to the residential tower. There was an older design that was one triangular six storey structure. Maybe this is a compromise.

I hope the Salter Street waterfront development gets underway soon. Not too long ago, most of Salter down from Barrington was just parking lots (and there was no Bishop's Landing). It made the downtown seem very small. Hopefully something will also be built next to the Ralston Building (it's owned by the federal government though and I am not aware of any plans). If that happens then there will be 4 new buildings on one corner.

A huge overhaul of the Maritime Museum and the Seawall are also in the works, along with the Salter Street development and Bishop's landing they should make a nice "tourist strip".

Wow, I really love those waterton condominiums. Now thats fantastic architecture. A style that should really be embraced much more around here. What is the status on these?

Queen's Landing redevelopment:


Two more future projects:
-RIM is planning to build a large campus-style complex to house their Halifax operations (they're currently located in the Xwave building in Clayton Park)
-Ocean Nutrition Canada is building a $23 million, 42000 square feet "steel and glass" expansion building in Dartmouth, 29 metres tall.

Speaking of the Xwave building: It will soon have a slightly smaller (generally identical) twin located directly to the north of it, next to the side of the building farthest away from the camera in this photo:.

You can see in Google Earth that the site is all prepared - I'm not sure what they're waiting for.

The early master plan, unfortuneatly I doubt they'll ever build every one of the 5 other buildings (or the artificial lake) in that image, since there seems to be an apartment building in the way now.
