    Ils semblent croire que le "global talent" ne vient que des pays anglophones/philes, comme l'Inde. Notre bassin de "global talent" est différent, et peut-être moins gros en terme de nombre d'habitants, mais nous en avons un quand même. La composition de mon équipe au travail pourrait en témoigner.

    Comme Bronfman a dit, à chaque jour de telles ententes se brisent d'un commun accord. Le texte de Forbes ne semble pas bien étoffé pour deux raisons : Il ne mentionne pas les déclarations du maire de St. Pete comme quoi ils n'attendront jusqu'en 2027 pour raser le terrain et qu'ils veulent régler cela rapidement, ni le partage 50/50 entre les Rays et la ville pour le développement du site autour du stade. La durée et cette clause sont contraignantes pour la ville... Et le texte n'emmène rien de nouveau. Mais on ignore complètement les intentions de Sternberg, et la MLB n'a toujours pas commenté depuis la sortie de Manfred où ce dernier soulignait froidement le manque d'implication du comté. Le dernier article à ce sujet sorti des journaux de Tampa la semaine dernière mentionnait le futur développement du terrain du Tropicana Field comme l'un des plus gros enjeux de la région pour 2019. Localement, il semble y avoir une réelle volonté politique pour que ca ne traine pas. Faut rester prudent, mais ca risque d'être intéressant à suivre cette année. J'ai aussi l'impression qu'il y aura une annonce sur les terrains au sud du Bassin Peel avant le déclenchement de la prochaine élection fédérale..

    Kinda reminds me of Perth, WA, which started with baby steps via a couple of > 200m then expanded phenomenally with other infrastructures especially the LRT. I believe Quebec City should follow up in those steps and, rather than relying too much on admin services, should increasingly develop its position as an industrialised hub being the hinterland of the great Northern & Eastern Quebec, tapping all the natural resources (hydro power, mineral resources, fisheries); transforming them on-the-spot and distributing them to the rest of the world. I admire Regis Lebeaume and his team for taking such a bold stance. It's not like there's going to stand a lonesome 250m in a horizontal haussmanian lace (kind like the horrible Montparnasse effect) but a mini-cluster comprising 110m, 180m, etc. in the vicinity. I support the idea of developing a corridor from which the skyline shall grow and progressively ebb towards the old district paving the way for the quaint european architecture. The only thing I regret from the mayor is his reluctance to integrate the subway within the réseau structurant. Mass transit is all about multimodality and PwC-Arup's proposal for QC-Lewis is the heck of a "private" venture any sane urban administrator cannot turn down

    L'aménagement du territoire n'est pas une fatalité, c'est le résultat des choix que nous faisons collectivement lors de chaque projet immobilier, chaque réaménagement du domaine public ou chaque investissement en infrastructures. I grew up in this part of the island. It desperately has to change, and it can change, given we don't waste historic opportunities like Royalmount to plan for something different and logical, on an environmental AND economic perspective. To keep building for more car capacity (as the current Royalmount project does) is a fiscal aberration and an ecological disaster. Montréal deserves better. No one is asking to tear down a single-family home neighbourhood. What we should be doing is rezoning them massively to allow for greater organic density. Let's see what the free market decides when the territories of Cote St-Luc, Hampstead or St-Laurent have zoning that reflect their amazing location in the urban area (minimum 4 homes on every lot, for example). No one wants to ride a bike in the winter ? 180 000 Montrealers disagree with you. But I do agree that you get what you plan for. A city-wide, year-round dedicated bike network could do wonders to double or triple that number. Building more dense, walkable neighbourhoods around this network would do even more. And if we keep approving projects such as Royalmount, indeed, we won't improve that number. Which is a shame, as urban biking saves society an incredible amount of money (a fantastic network could be built with 5% of the total cost of the Highway19 extension to nowhere) Despite this, as you said, more and more people are buying bigger and bigger cars. I fail to understand how can someone be aware of this trend and not actively want to stop it. Not only is it costing us collectively billions of dollars in infrastructure (money that could be used way more wisely in a variety of ways), the popularity of SUVs in urban areas is becoming a serious public health problem (traffic accidents, air quality, etc.). Despite all this evidence... we should be supporting this trend and build more car-centric landscapes? (which, by the way, fail for everyone, including drivers, as the current data on traffic congestion tells us). I personally do not think so. The only logical answer to such a trend is to actively try to stop it by using every opportunity of urban infill (such as Royalmount) to create complete, mixed and walkable neighbourhoods. Tellement une phrase intéressante. Une grande partie de la gestion du transport repose sur le concept de la demande induite, voire même du behavorisme spatial (le premier déterminant du choix de transport étant l'aménagement de l'origine et de la destination). En ce sens, la vaste majorité du tissu urbain montréalais encourage actuellement ACTIVEMENT l'utilisation de l'automobile (et donc, nous contraint à un mode de vie). C'est l'aménagement même des quartiers actuels et futurs qu'il faut changer pour encourager le transport collectif et la mobilité active (mixité des usages, qualité du domaine public, densité). Il est ironique que de souhaiter un quartier dense et mixte sur le site de Royalmount soit perçu comme une façon de FORCER les gens à adopter un mode de vie quand TOUTES les décisions d'aménagement du territoire (et particulièrement celles qui favorisent l'automobile) le font. Needless to say, I massively disagree with your vision of transport in the future. Driverless electric taxis or electric cars do not change the most important fact when it comes to planning transport within an urban area: geometry. Both options are still as ineffective as any normal car in a congested area (as the Royalmount sector will undoubtedly be). Our best bet, as always, is to plan for walkable communities around more public transit (which is already becoming electric and automated, just as you like) to reduce demand in the first place. Unfortunately, we do not have enough of these neighbourhoods on the island right now, because our zoning policies prevent us from creating more (and prices in the Plateau and downtown suggest there is a huge demand for well-connected, dense communities with lots of transit). That's why we should not waste the great opportunity that is the real estate boom around the Décarie axis right now for sub-par projects like Royalmount when we could create so much better. THAT'S truly giving an alternative to the car, and we'll save money on the way! -- Rappel: la présentation des mémoires commence ce mercredi après-midi!

    No, not the same company. Doubletree is part of the Hilton family of hotels. The Doubletree brand is one that often absorbs older hotels from other brands that no longer suit that brand's new requirements/image... and with a relatively minor investment they can call themselves a Doubletree. I am not suggesting there are no nice Doubletrees, but typically they were be older properties that used to be something else. This happened with the former Crowne Plaza at Sherbrooke/Berri which briefly became a Doubletree before being sold to Groupe Eddy Savoie. The new Doubletree at the airport was formerly the Best Western. There are many examples across North America of this type of conversion to Doubletree.
