TAYLOR: Nova Centre would bring thousands downtown daily

December 7, 2012 – The Chronicle Herald
A little economic activity goes a long way in downtown Halifax.
I know this because when The Chronicle Herald moved out of the downtown a few years ago, in short order business people were telling me their store or restaurant was suffering from the loss of about 300 newspaper employees who had transacted business there.
While the value of building the new Nova Centre complex, where the newspaper building once stood, still has its doubters, it is estimated that even during the least amount of activity at the centre, about 3,000 people will be working, living in or visiting the complex.
