When we head to the park to walk Sophie we usually take Hollis Street in Halifax.
This street has a lot of history and therefore some very old buildings.
It's finding a good balance between the 'old' and the 'new' that has caused controversy over the years when high rises are proposed.
As can be seen in the first photo a compromise was reached to somewhat please the historical society and the developers.
The facade of the very old building was saved and secured structurally while the building will rise above it and become 'part' of the new structure.
