Photographer's Note

HRM's urban core has a higher proportion of historic buildings compared with other municipalities in Canada. Preservationists and heritage advocacy organizations have attempted to prevent their demolition by developers in recent decades. Such groups have been criticized for stunting the centralization of urban growth and for stopping buildings from being built on empty land containing little to no historic value.

The urban core is home to several modern office buildings, however the waterfront of the Halifax Peninsula is governed by height restrictions which prevent buildings from obstructing the sight line between Citadel Hill and Halifax Harbour and Georges Island. This has resulted in modern high rises being built in unusual locations.
