The sea bridge is open! It's really cool to see the progress on Queen's Marque from the bridge.

And here is the progress from the newly opened sea bridge!

This shot gives me an idea on what the canyon effect will be along Lower Water. I'm thinking that it might not be all that bad. It's good to see progress happening, I can't wait for this area to be cleaned up even though I know it's a couple years out from that.

I don't think it will be bad. Mostly I think it depends on how good the new building looks and how good the finishing of the public areas is, not how much space there is. The fact that they are using high-quality materials like sandstone to clad Queen's Marque is evidence that it will be well done.

There's very little space around some of the older buildings around Historic Properties but people really like them. There's not much space between the Dominion Public Building and Bank of NS but that street is still interesting because of the architecture of those buildings and all of the street-level detailing.

It is good that there's NS Crystal on one side and the museum on the other to break up the scale a bit.

One of the nicest aspects of the Halifax waterfront is that it still has some older buildings as well as narrow streets that are easy for pedestrians to cross. It has a different feel from modern waterfronts full of greenspace and glassy condos.

And in addition, across the street from part of the building will be the surface parking lot of the Dominion Public Building, which will offer some relief to the effect.

I think the material selection looks good. And I hope they don't deviate from that plan and cheap out once they get closer to completion, especially if the budget sees some overruns in the meantime.

I don't think they could get away from deviating from the materials. They were all approved as part of the development so any changes of that nature would require new approvals.
