I was hopeful with the Alexander.... but that needed to be at least another 10 stories to make a difference... We definitely need some angled buildings. You look at skylines of other cities and the attractive buildings are always those with non-flat tops...

It's amazing the Alexander, one of the tallest looks like one of the shortest. This is a great picture.

The massive hill Halifax is located on has a drastic effect on the height of buldings.

Once upon a time I got to the roof of Purdys II before it opened.

If I'm not mistaken, that's the White Heather docked in front of the former Sheraton hotel. It was owned by my orthodontist and I remember going on it at least once.

The White Heather! There's a name from the past. It was quite impressive. Showed how lucrative the orthodontic business could be. Dr. Gene Jensen was the owner. I think he eventually learned the lesson of all such boats being a hole in the water that you pour money into.

Here's some info on her history. Looks like she's for sale now.

Impressive interior!

(My daughter had her braces done by Jensen eons ago. She wasn't a fan of his bedside manner! lol)

That's interesting but the site seems to have made a goof in determining the year she was built. This seems more accurate:
