This morning’s waterfront view

Here’s the view this morning from the second storey of the Nova Scotia Power building on Lower Water Street.

Of course, you can’t see the NS Power building from this photograph, but I will take this opportunity to note that it is the most under-appreciated architectural marvel in Nova Scotia—a magnificent structure with many interesting features that combine to make it an exceptionally beautiful and functional workplace. The ground floor of the defunct coal-fired generating station is accessible to the public from the boardwalk side. If you are in the neighbourhood during business hours, you really should take a peek inside. The architects, WZMH of Toronto, have a good slide show of the interior and exterior.
