  1. Tour des Canadiens 2 - 51 étages

    I love the Habs and one bad (or ten) seasons won't change that. However I find it odd that these days the Canadiens seem more focused on growing (selling) their brand than playing good hockey. I'm uneasy with not one but three lit up Habs logos in the skyline. Hence my comment.
  2. Tour des Canadiens 2 - 51 étages

    Put it in storage until the team isn't garbage.
  3. Cities Held Hostage

    I really enjoyed it actually. I know the views are definitely on the NIMBY side, but it's important to remember some of the mistakes of the past (granted... I wasn't around then), especially as things seem to be moving so fast in Montreal these days. It was refreshing to see CBC post a documentary showing Montreal's "big city issues" something that has really only been reserved for Toronto and Vancouver recently. Definitely a sign that we're on the rise. I agree with you though - not much was proposed in the way of solutions. It still seems like Montreal lacks some vision and has been genuinely taken aback by the pace of development. I hate to see Victorian mansions sacrificed for faceless towers that always get value engineered down from the renders (see Stanbrooke... what a piece of garbage with it's EIFs siding instead of the decorative screen from the render). Perhaps if the city allowed for more intensification in key areas (200m+), developers wouldn't be so eager to destroy some of what's left of our heritage as the city lets it fall to ruin. I wouldn't have voted for Mme. Plante, but I'm hopeful that Projet Montreal will be more sensitive to heritage preservation in Montreal, while being somewhat realistic that the boom is most certainly on. Anywho, enjoyed the video very much. Thanks for posting it GDS. Montreal is full of potential and creativity. If we apply it, I believe we can achieve a desired balance!
  4. Pour 4G... je pense qu'on puisse faire mieux - surtout qu'à mon avis, il y a des secteurs de la ville qui ont plus besoin d'une amelioration du réseau de transport.
  5. Juste au Québec? As-tu entendu du prolongement du metro TTC jusqu' à Scarborough? 3.5G pour une station de metro.
  6. Marché immobilier résidentiel de Montréal : actualités

    Comments aside, someone should inform the writer of this article that Canada's two largest metropolitan areas don't include Vancouver. Ignorance breeds ignorance.
  7. Daaaaaamn. Renzo Piano has produced yet another nice piece of architecture. Well done. Bonus: It hides the DoubleTree hotel.
  8. Yikes. Not a fan of this one. I'm not sure that metal panel facade will age very well.
  9. Une meilleure croissance en terme de pourcentage que Vancouver cette année!
  10. 455 René-Lévesque Ouest - 34 étages

    Typically a render or renders cost at least 2000$ in fees to produce (usually more). Renders are quite the time commitment so someone has to pay for the work that goes into making these. I really doubt this is an in-house portfolio building exercise. Even if this iteration is not a serious proposal, it indicates to me that there's interest that will result in a forthcoming development proposal for this site.
  11. Funny you should say that - same architects KPF, who also designed 1250 Rene-Levesque.
  12. 975 Lucien-L'Allier - 45 étages

    Good bet that the cheapest firm was selected by the cheapest group of developers.
  13. Personally not a big fan of BIG. Let's have some Norman Foster or Renzo Piano magic.
  14. Let's suppose for a second we don't get a crown as part of this design. The tower will at the very least have tall parapet walls (+/-5m) to screen its rooftop mechanical penthouse or the mechanical will occupy additional floors.
  15. La Tour Mcgill College fait 158m sur 38 étages, alors je pense que cette tour pourra atteindre le seuil de 160m.
