Some Additional Comments from the Surveys

  • No significant benefit to the community.
  • The Quinpool Road area is my preferred commercial district but this large building will not enhance my living experience in any way.
  • Parker Street is getting the short end of this stick.
  • It will have a huge impact on the Halifax Common with shade and wind. There was no mention of the wind study in the presentation.
  • Huge traffic jams due to serious increase in traffic.
  • We have the Bell Aliant tower and Fenwick Tower. Both are inappropriate within their neighbourhoods. This should never happen again.
  • The only benefit from this development is for the developer.
  • We shouldn’t use old mistakes (like the Welsford apartment building nearby) as a justification for new mistakes.
  • A more holistic approach that also considers St. Pat’s in a new Centre Plan first.
  • Should not be considered outside the master plan for Halifax Common and the Centre Plan.
  • Too much density in one place. Spread it out around the peninsula.
  • Why do developers have the right to propose buildings that break the municipal plan so badly? Why is this even being considered?
  • Moratorium on development until a Centre Plan is done.
