Halifax seeks feedback on 23-storey tower proposed for Robie Street

HALIFAX, N.S. — A Halifax developer is pitching a 23-storey, mixed-use building to fill the gap between two towers on Robie Street in Halifax.

A proposal for the property, situated between the Willow Tree site and Welsford apartments, was initially introduced in 2014, but was put on pause as the Centre Plan was still in the works with Halifax regional council.
