A renovation of the existing building and addition to the south side. The site is at the southwest aspect of the intersection of Spring Garden and Queen. From the developer's website: "If Halifax has one prime corner destination at the heart of our city’s best in retail, dining, entertainment, and business – this is it! We’ve taken this active corner of Spring Garden Road at Queen Street, and renovated the property to provide an address of distinction to complement the vibrant Spring Garden neighbourhood, including a rooftop terrace – the perfect vantage point to survey the activity below. Tenants: Starbucks, American Apparel, DHX "The facade is to be updated and made consistent throughout the building. The historic building is emphasized. An addition accommodates barrier-free access, an elevator and an increase in office and retail space. Safety is ensured with a louvered south-facing support structure and doors do not swing onto the sidewalk. Garbage and transformers are no longer visible from the street. Canopies cover each entrance and nighttime lighting warms the outdoor space."
