I just returned from the Maritimes and while holidaying, I had the opportunity to spend a few days in the downtown historic city of Halifax and its amazing waterfront. This area has been undergoing a successful rejuvination for a number of years. Historic buildings on Barrington, Hollis and the upper and lower parts of Water Street are being preserved either completely as with the Historic Properties on the waterfront or by building new modern structures while preserving the facades of the historic buildings, many of which have been designated. The facades have not been dismantled; rather they have been secured while the modern development goes up behind the original historic building. The technology exists to do this. Why would the developer not do the same. I have several pictures which I will post on the Durand Neighbourhood website once downloaded.
