There's A New 'Kid' in Town



We are in the city a few times a week now that summer is here.


We have been parking in the centre of town and walking around to see what is new.


For the past year or so we have watched a condo high-rise being built.


What a positive difference this property makes of this neighbourhood now.


The street was once lined with Victorian houses that were very run-down and beyond repair.


This new building is called 'The Trillium'.


It gives this popular part of the city a much needed 'breath of fresh air'.


Plus it gave us an opportunity to photograph something that is a little different for Halifax.

  1. That is a beautiful building - and something interesting to photograph. Sometimes a facelift is needed in a neighbourhood to bring it back to life. Too bad about those Victorian homes being so rundown. When they are in good shape, they are lovely.

  4. Very interesting building. I'm sure you know Chicago is known for it's exquisite architecture, so we tend to be architectural snobs here, but I like it! Very unique, very colorful. I wonder what it's like to be on the top floor when the sun is shining through those blue panels. I would imagine it casts a strange blue glow into the windows. Neat!

    1. I didn't know that about Chicago Lisa. I thought NYC was the centre of the universe as far as architectural design. What do I know!
      If I ever get the chance to experience that 'blue glow' I will let you know! lol

  7. Beautiful building. I agree sometimes you have to tear down the old and build something new and different.
