New Sobeys development an atrocity 

New design will not fit with the charming existing streetscapes of the North End

I had my first glimpse of the new Sobeys development planned for north end Halifax in a recent newspaper feature. At first I thought it might have been inspired by Soviet East German architecture, but then I thought perhaps it might have been a project of a kindergarten class.

Whatever the source of the inspiration, I am sure awestricken visitors will come from near and far to view this sensitive creation that will put the north end on the map.

If we all hadn't been pounded into submission by the mindlessness of Halifax developers,we would rise in protest that such a monstrosity was to be built in the midst of the charming existing streetscapes of the north end. —Peter McCurdy, Halifax
