Here's a good explanation of FAR with diagrams:
https://www.shapeyourcityhalifax.ca/...ocuments/15253

Basically if the building takes up its entire site and all floors are equal, then it can be 7.5 stories high. If it takes up less area, then it can be taller (up to a point). In all likelihood, only the podium would use close to the maximum plot area, so it could be several stories taller.

Saw this in the Toronto Thread:

https://canada.constructconnect.com/...NT-mainweb.jpg



It's the new bridge for the large Port Lands development. It is being fabricated and painted here in Woodside and then shipped to Toronto.

???

When they posted it in the other thread titled Dartmouth bridge I assumed it was made by a company named Dartmouth or on a street named Dartmouth or something. Since when do we produce bridges?

I was also confused by that. I though there must be a new development on the Toronto waterfront called Dartmouth.

That Canada forum is a wild and wooly place!

Cherubini have been making Bridge components for the New York City area since shortly after 9/11.

Cherubini is one of those local companies that really slips under the radar. They have done huge projects in Canada and US. The ones in the US northeast are particularly impressive because of the local competition. Cherubini Group also has many other companies locally.

Imagine how much better something like this would have looked as the footbridge at the Micmac parclo instead of the thing that looks like a crane holding up a piece of decking.

I'm afraid then you'll be disappointed to know that a sister bridge to the Lake Micmac structure is now in place on the Lake William Trail in Waverley. The official opening was set for this afternoon but has been rescheduled to 20 October. With this bridge, I think something like 700 metres of trail remains to be completed to join the Lake William Trail to the Lake Charles and Shubenacadie Canal trail systems. The bridge incorporates decking retired from the Macdonald Bridge Big Lift. It was built by the Shubenacadie Watershed Environmental Protection Society (SWEPS) with CN's permission over its Dartmouth subdivision tracks. That's a pretty impressive active transportation corridor from Rocky Lake Drive in Waverley to Halifax Harbour.

IIRC, according to the NS Drivers Handbook, if you're in the left hand lane on one side of an intersection you should aim for the left hand lane on the other side of the intersection and avoid changing lanes within the intersection. This morning I traveled north on Robie through the willow tree intersection and found myself to be the only vehicle not to change lanes within the intersection...out of approximately ten vehicles. As I approached the intersection at Cunard I discovered why. I was in a left turn only lane. Maybe I missed new signage? There's certainly lots to look at at the willow tree intersection with building going up and building coming down and one has to dodge the beggars. Anyway, if the left hand lane between the two aforementioned intersections is to be a left hand turn lane, then IMHO, an island or other obstruction should be placed at the willow tree intersection so that the current centre lane in that stretch would become the most left hand thru lane at the willow tree intersection thus having traffic not need to lane change within the intersection to maintain their status as thru traffic northbound on Robie.

HRM has no clue what they are doing these days with choking off streets. It is getting ridiculous.

Interesting. Will this replace the Moffatt Pharmacy? Or it's next door?

I looks to me that it is occupying the space that the existing building sits on along with the parking lot out back.

The rendering also looks like they are importing several dozen people since I have never seen that many pedestrians in that area before.

2165 Gottingen - I was going to post a photo of this project since it is almost now complete and the masonry work on the ground floor looks nice but Tumblr won't let me upload photos right now. The signage indicates Dime Salon Inc will be the ground floor tenant.

Very interesting! It seems like a proper supermarket. It should be a great boon to the growing residential population in the downtown proper, especially those who don't own cars.

Their business should really pick up once the Roy and the Green Lantern/Zeller's developments are fully occupied (and perhaps eventually the mythical Texpark redevelopment). I can imagine a lot of tourists popping in here too once the pandemic subsides.

Yum! Happy to see something beyond your typical weekend market.
