I wonder if the Queen's Marque developers will be pouring concrete this year?

I saw what looked like a roll of rebar, so I'd say the concrete will start soon.

That is good to hear.

Great update picture kph06. Does this mean that most of the excavation is complete?

I'm glad they decided to open the bridge 24/7.

Comparing kph06 and Jonovision's pictures, I wonder if the footings are for a permanent seawall, and the site will be excavated to a greater depth to the west side of the site?

The estimated completion date is 2019, and those estimates tend to be optimistic. I wouldn't be surprised if there were multiple stages to the site prep and excavation work.

"Sea Bridge". Cool name for something. Or somewhere. Or something. :shuffle:

First crane base is in.. It is right in front of Murphy's.

pblaauw Aug 5, 2017 2:46 AM

When is the crane going up? The slab under the base still hasn't been poured.

June 14, 1962. Cutline: Out with the old, in with the new. The old fisheries inspection laboratory, in front of Queen’s Wharf on Lower Water Street, and possibly one of Halifax’s oldest buildings, is shown in the early stages of demolition. The old structure, shrouded in rumour and legend, dates back well over a century. It was destroyed to make way for a new fish inspection laboratory. Cochrane / Herald Staff.

Looks interesting as a historical building but not very remarkable.

I've said this before but I think it would be good if some historic buildings were reconstructed on the waterfront. My first pick would probably be the old Hauser Stores building that originally had the naval clock on its roof. The current naval clock installation doesn't do it justice.

Jonovision Aug 17, 2017 4:05 PM

It's always interesting to see the different perspectives the building will be visible from.

I'm not sure what this blue metal structure is at the corner of the site? My guess would be either signage or perhaps a tank for a concrete plant on site.
