All UC now. Also, there is a new hotel to be build at De Bleury and Sherbrooke (it’s near approval). And De Bleury is a narrow street to boot.
Quite impressive. I remember not too long ago when Bleury was a patchwork of empty lots, parking lots and abandoned buildings from Old Montreal all the way to Sherbrooke.

However, why the southern tip of Parc Avenue is still somewhat decrepit between Sherbrooke and Milton escapes me.

Maybe because that stretch is in the Plateau arrondissement, where they have very restricting zoning rules ? There are some lovely buildings there, but also many ones that could be replace with higher density projects, especially the one at the corner of Sherbrooke with the Provigo.

Here's a trio of Urban Capital projects in Halifax. NRTH is proposed, Gorsebrook Park is under construction, and Southport was completed a few years ago.

NRTH


Southport


Gorsebrook Park

Very nice projects for Halifax. NRTH kind of looks like a mid-century modern office building that has been repurposed to residential... it has a very cool throwback design.

Love this one. All those mid-rises couple of posts above look great too. If Halifax can build a couple of lrt lines, it has the potential to be the next great Canadian city. Note to self: visit Halifax in the next 6 months.

Nice proposal for any city. Reminds me of the 2 tower Vancouver proposal which I can't remember the name of, but was near Robson Street.

Edit - this one.

Is that Vancouver project still moving forward? Or was it redesigned/shelved? It would be nice to see move forward.

Not sure. Haven't heard much in the Vancouver forum about it lately.

Last heard, this Robert Stern proposal has been shelved for the time being.

It's listed as "coning soon" on the developer's website with completion in 2023. Will have to move into sales in the near future if that timeline is true.

The Promenade has the potential to be a little polarizing, it's just so different. The Robie Street storefronts look like they're executed to perfection but I'm having a hard time understanding the base of the building in the first rendering... is that a parking lot, or just a driveway at the bottom? One would expect a pair of towers like this to be pretty tightly knit into their surroundings... a parking lot beyond just a small loading zone would look out of place.

I am constantly amazed at the apparently unstoppable apartment market in Halifax, given it's real estate affordability and size.

I think if I was to move outside of the GTA to somewhere else in Canada, it would be near the top of my list. Its a wonderful little city.

The small corner stepback 2/3rds up the towers makes such a difference. I don't like the balconies on the lower 1/3rd one bit.

The market is at a severe shortage currently. Anecdotal, but last month friend from work who was buying a house ended up losing her first attempts after being outbid by 35+k above asking, but finally closed on a place she had the luck to learn about before it was listed. The owners accepted because they were in a hurry to sell.

The apartment market seems to be just as bad.

There's already a small amount of surface parking in the middle of the block but it's enclosed by buildings so isn't really visible from the street. That land doesn't appear to be part of the proposal as these buildings would have their own underground stalls.

I think the grey paved area in the rendering is just a drop-off spot and driveway. This development has underground parking. Like Nouvellecosse says that surface lot visible is already there.

The other side of the block (on Spring Garden Road) is a tower development site too so that interior parking lot will probably be gone eventually.

The "motion blur" rendering is very strange.

This one is proposed next door. Potentially 3 30 storey buildings on this block:
