When is this scheduled to be finished... I know there won't be services for a while due to the COVID-19.

Well, it certainly stands out. Is this a typical design for a Maronite church?

This is called The Rosedale. It's going up at 1 Rosedale Avenue (at Dutch Village Road). It as-of-right in the Dutch Village Secondary Plan so unfortunately I only have what is posted publicly on site for information. There's a photo of the posted rendering on my blog.

I'm guessing that the colour palette, window proportions, and sheltered "terrace" surrounding the building are based on Levantine (?) architecture - they are similar to St. Antonio's on Windsor Street (Antiochan Orthodox). Or it might just be a coincidence, I'm not sure. The windows are also a bit like St. Agnes (Catholic, Mumford/Chebucto)

Thanks, that's interesting. I actually kind of like the style, though the finishing materials look a little like vinyl siding, not sure what they are actually. The red roof is what makes it really stand out.

For my personal tastes, I'm kind of on the fence between appreciating the use of colour and wondering if it's a little too much. Haven't seen it in person, though, since I've been sticking around home pretty much (and working longer hours than ever) since this pandemic hit.

Thanks to RoshanMcG for posting the pics!

Looks like Civic Homes has filed for bankruptcy. They own the former Beazley's lands off of Highway 7 in Westphal and were starting to build Lake Loon Estates in the rear of the lot. The approved development agreement allows for two mid-rise residential buildings and townhouses. There is Case #23052 active which seeks to transfer the development rights and extend the commencement/completion dates.

A construction permit has been issued at 432 Herring Cove Road for a 32 unit / 4 storey residential building. This is just north of Drysdale Road.

Demolition permit has been issued for three properties at 293 Saint Margaret's Bay Road including the former home of Euro Pizza.

Construction permit has been issued at 61 Stella Drive in Porter's Lake for a 10'000 sq ft strip mall. The lot is adjacent to Atlantic Superstore.

Demolition permits have been issued for 145 Main Street & 74 Lakecrest Drive, Dartmouth. This is a former bridal shop fronting on Main Street at Hartlen Street in the heart of "The Village on Main". Presumably the redevelopment is as-of-right and given recent developments nearby this could be a midrise mixed-use building.

Aren't those the ones HRM bought so they could extend Hartlen through to Lakecrest?

You are correct according to "The Village on Main" facebook page.

“In 2011, a study related to the Main Street Dartmouth Planning Vision and Streetscape Concept determined that Hartlen Street should be extended to connect Main Street and Lakecrest Drive. This extension will allow for increased connectivity in the Main Street area. In March 2020, we acquired the final piece of property required to start this project so this year we will be moving forward with demolition, the creation of a temporary grass path, bench and sign, crosswalk relocation and a curb extension. Then we can begin the planning, design and construction of the final project."

The Province is planning to purchase the parkland behind Park West School for a new PrePrimary - 8 school fronting on Radcliffe Drive. The size is listed as 700-800 students which is slightly larger than the ~550 next door. The report says the new school is needed for increased enrollment and there is no mention of Park West being decommissioned. Given it was only built in 2000 I think both schools will be active.
