[Halifax] Stairs House (5247 South Street) | 24 m | 8 fl | Proposed
Summer Wind Holdings is proposing to revitalize the Stairs House at 5247 South Street (just west of Barrington). The registered heritage property will be restored while the more modern additions will be removed and replaced by a 8-storey residential building that will front onto Harvey Street.

More details and renderings can be found at Halifax Planning - Case 22728.

There's a Victorian apartment building at 5240-5244 Harvey which would be torn down as part of this. It's pretty chopped up after decades of poor renovations, and it wouldn't be a huge loss, but it retains some very nice detailing and I don't love the thought of losing it. And this midrise itself looks pretty bland.

Still, probably still an acceptable tradeoff, given the shot of density and the spruce-up for the Stairs House.
