The discussion on this page has gotten off topic, can this please be placed elsewhere so we can see what is actually happening at Richmond Yards.

Sorry for bringing back this semi-off-topic discussion, but while reading Glimpses Of Halifax 1867 - 1900, originally published in 1949 by the Public Archives of Nova Scotia, I found a definition of Richmond as a footnote on page 63, which I scanned and now submit for your consideration:



Sorry for the interruption, now back to "Richmond Yards"...

Thank you for proving me correct yet again. It is a burden to always be right, but I carry it with some pride.

All that burden arising from greatness, yet you remain so humble...

What is to happen from that old strip mall site, along with the Mr. Transmission building? More of Richmond Yards?

I wonder if this one might end up being the tallest building in our skyline. Full skyline below for reference:

According to google earth the site has a 60m sea level elevation vs fenwick at about 20m This will technically be ~40m taller than fenwick from sea level. But how tall it looks will depend on a persons viewpoint.

Interestingly though you can already see this from Kearny Lake & Dunbrack intersection area.

Driving down Woodlawn Ave in Dartmouth, that whole Robie, Almond, Young area looks quite impressive from across the harbour.

Fenwick may still be more prominent from Woodside bit I think this, especially with the buildings around it, will be a real sight from most other directions.

I would guess so but have seen no plans to date. I also read yesterday that the adjacent building where Fox Hill had their Halifax retail store is also being demolished now that the farm folk have vacated.

Halifax has a flat top. It needs a series of downtown hi-rises that are several floors higher than one another and higher than the 23 floor, like a 30 and 35+.
