Next steps for 2 proposals for 16-, 20-, 26- & 30-storey towers beside Carlton Street, (Halifax’s only Heritage streetscape?) will be a review by the Heritage Advisory Committee and then the Halifax and West Community Council. Meeting dates are not yet scheduled.
Up to 11 buildings on the last historic neighbourhood of the South Common will be demolished at Spring Garden, Robie and College. The proposals ignore the 1994 Halifax Common Plan’s commitment to plan for the entire 240 acre grant. They ignore formal requests to HRM for a designated Conservation Area. And they ignore overwhelming public opposition. Learn more with Rick Howe’s interview.
