  1. Royalmount "Quinze40"

    We've heard the expression shit hole a lot lately. Well having worked for 20 years on Devonshire between the Met and Royalmount let me tell you; this is Montreal's # 1Shit Hole. The whole area bounded by the Met, Blue Bonnets,Dalton and the St' Luc Yards is screaming for development. Hey this project is what is needed to help spring the MTQ to work on a replacement project for the SCAR (hwy 40). Why don't some of you people on this forum take a drive down the 401 Toronto or the I 95 Boston or go to Houston . See what is happening in these cities. They have development on steroids. We have the start of a self perpetuating boom in Montreal that will go on for years. so stop being nimbys and stop thinking of le gros village. Montreal is a tremendous place to live and work and play. Please stop hindering its progress. So if le Marche Centrale and the Rockland center shut down ...big deal...It's called evolution. The Marche Centrale area along with the Rock;land center can merge into one center and one of the two becomes prime residential condo tower and rental apartment zoning area. People want to spend money here and take risks with millions and millions of dollars and we say no thank you??? Come on wake up smell the coffee. 15 years ago we were happy when a new Macdonald's opened.
  2. Le Drummond - 2 * 24 étages

    I see a nice empty lot right across from this Samcon project fronting on Stanley...wonder if something is in the works?
  3. Hi Cataclaw, not bad at all. Just a little adjustment on the base pedestal. I think a more refined much lower pedestal feature and you have a hell of a project worthy of being submitted for consideration by Broccolini . Hey it' a lot better than some of the projects that are actually being built.Cheers!!

  5. REZ Immobilier a annoncé la mise en chantier de District Union, un plan d’ensemble multirésidentiel et multigénérationnel de 900 millions de dollars, situé à Terrebonne. Ce projet à échelle humaine s’inscrit dans l’émergence des nouveaux quartiers dynamiques et autonomes de certaines villes, notamment d’Amérique du Nord et de Scandinavie. Un pôle civique déjà existant District Union propose un projet où les espaces verts, les espaces publics et les parcs représenteront 20 % du site. Le quartier compte déjà une école primaire, un hôpital, la gare du train de l’Est et sa navette Urbis, de même que 1,5 million de pieds carrés d’offre commerciale déjà disponibles. Un gymnase et un centre sportif communautaire sont actuellement en construction. S’ajouteront également une bibliothèque et un centre aquatique. REZ Immobilier entend compléter cette offre en attirant des commerces de proximité pour les besoins globaux des familles, avec des initiatives encourageant l’implantation de PME. Le projet prévoit aussi des espaces de plein air. Le quartier sera délimité par un important boisé pour séparer la cité des infrastructures routières avoisinantes. On y trouvera des parcs, des sentiers piétonniers, des pistes cyclables et des pistes de ski de fond. Des habitations modulables La phase I de District Union proposera trois nouveaux types d’ensembles immobiliers comptant au total 364 unités de logement : Kubica présentera six variantes d’unités destinées aux différents types de ménages. Il s’agira de blocs segmentés modulables proposant des espaces de vie intérieurs et extérieurs privatifs, qui s’intégreront à des espaces pour la communauté ; Quartier Sélect correspondra à une clientèle d’adultes dont les enfants ont quitté le foyer. Il offrira une silhouette unique et des lignes élégantes, utilisant la verticale pour maximiser les espaces de vie et la végétation ; Yimby sera consacré aux jeunes et sera constitué d’espaces compacts et modulables, incluant des aires communes, comme un espace lounge, une cuisine collaborative et des aires de cotravail.
  6. Ah, beautiful, progress..Love the building boom in Montreal. Sure there are buildings that should always stay untouched ,the Royal Vic campus, Universite de Montreal, McGill, Sunlife, Bell Cda, Aldred, many of the great churches and cathedrals in Montreal. This Montreal Children's campus will still be memorialised with the administration building on Rene Levesque. Out with the old and in with the new. Agreed, the quality must be there. Please no brutalist concrete bunkers, no misaligned windows and mismatched coloured prefab slabs or discoloured glass panels.The old hospital was just that an old passe building that had outlived its ability to meet the needs of modern medicine. Let's enjoy this boom while it lasts, hopefully it will be self sustaining for many years to come. We can criticize and bitch but we are not risking any of our money and just go back about 10 years and we were the backwater where nobody wanted to build. Today, dozens and dozens of work sites and cranes are visible.all over the area. Construction means jobs which in turn generates more money being reinvested into the economy. One last comment for what it's worth ... ........... In life once you lose your loved ones like your parents .....then losing an old building is so insignificant in the order of things.
  7. Tour des Canadiens 2 - 51 étages

    There are still 20 storeys to go so this building will be a very noticeable addition to the skyline. Once TDC3 and the rest of the Cadillac Fairview Quad project is up, this area will be truly a new pole for future development southward. It is really amazing how the skyline has become quite dense in the last few years. Keep the projects coming!!

  10. How about we get Amazon''s new headquarters and get them to pony up some cash for the the rate that the Bank of Nova Scotia is doing for the Toronto Maple Leafs (800 million over 20 years) Our baseball stadium could be called the Amazon Complex including a field for the new NFL franchise called the Montreal Larks!! Wow, now that is grandiose thinking outside the box!!!!

  13. Le Phare - 65 étages

    J'ai une idée!! Oubliez la ville de Québec. Apportez ce projet à Montréal et le construire sur le lot de bureau en gros sur Robert Bourassa et Notre Dame. Ca serait drôle de voir la tête de Régis Labeaume exploser!
