Reports, Projects and Studies:
2012 – Barrington Street – Inspiration for Halifax’s Historic Streetscape (pdf)
T.J. Maguire’s BCD Honours Thesis (Dalhousie University). Since amalgamation in 1996, The Halifax Regional Municipality (HRM) has produced a variety of studies, plans and reports proposing different designs for the street. Considering Barrington Street is a Heritage Conservation District, how appropriate are the proposed designs today? What would the street look like if the designs were applied, and is there a more appropriate design?
