HRM Council moves one step closer to approving a 20 or 29- storey mega-lithic money-maker tower for APL (George Armoyan) at Robie & Quinpool on March 21st. That’s against what 99% of citizens who spoke at public meetings or wrote letters want.
But letters don’t get carried forward so if you didn’t write in March, Councillors won’t know you are against this project! You still have time to write to tell them to not continue the approval process. Ask them to focus on the Centre Plan and the Halifax Common Plan, not individual developers.
FYI – 20 storeys isn’t a compromise-its twice as high as what’s allowed, as what’s there & two floors higher than the convention centre.
This is the thin edge of the wedge as other developers are chomping at the heels of staff and council to get break rules for their proposed projects for 13-, 14-, 16-, 20-, 25-, 26- and 30-storeys on or next to the Halifax Common.
So if you care about protecting green space, stopping shadows and preventing wicked winds on the Oval, the Common Roots Urban Farm and everywhere else in the neighbourhood please write to the mayor and council and tell them not to approve either 20 or 29 storeys at the Willow Tree.
