    Regardless of where their execs are, they do have a significant presence in Montreal and the employees have to be put somewhere if that brewery is converted into condos+ ... And obviously it comes down to economics but my gut tells me that they would and could launch the 750 Peel. One of the controlling families have a good relationship with CF and want to give back. This is a concrete way of doing it. Sent from my BLU LIFE ONE X using Tapatalk

    We might see 750 Peel go up sooner than we think. If Molson moves the brewery to the east-end. I wouldn't be surprised if the head office is relocated into the 750 Peel. This assumption is based solely on the Molson Family/Canadiens and CF relationship for TdC. An, I scratch your back you scratch mine moment. I imagine Molson is too large to fit into the remaining space in the Deloitte Building (which is split over two elevator banks).
  3. Ils on commencé la démolition. Il y avait de la machinerie sur le site ce matin.
  4. Ils ont peinturé les halles d'entré. C'est beaucoup mieux!
  5. I think A and C are really the only options under consideration and they each have their own pros and cons. I am going with the assumption that we are getting a sky-train like, driverless vehicle, not a surface Tram/SLR: Project A Cons: - Is more expensive to build (because the tunnel would need to start somewhere near the Peel Basin) - Would help add value to CF's projects along Peel Street (This is a Con from the perspective of the Caisse who's Ivanhoé division has an interest in solidifiying the presence of the center-core and the McGill College Axis.) Pro: - Access to a larger ridership pool by placing it in the heart of Griffintown - Larger oppertunity to obtain some sort of development tax (because its closer to the properties being developed in Griffintown) - Better connections with the Metro - The turn towards the airport line is easier Project B Pros: - Less expensive - as it will follow the already elevated portion of the CN track - Further away from the CF development projects / passes through or near several properties owned by the Caisse (PVM, le 1000, Queen E, Eaton's Center) and Gare Centrale is owned by Cominar (which the Caisse has a large stake in) - Closer to the Cité Multi-Media Cons: - Transfer from the metro is not integrated - Less access to the population centers of the south (fewer people live / will live in the Robert-Bourassa Boul. Corridor)
  6. C'est bon a savoir que je peu vendre pour 400,000 (quand on ajoute le stationnement) quand j'ai payé moins de 250,000
  7. Le courriel était pour dire que le club house et la terrasse seront sur la tour 1 (sud) au lieu de la tour (2) nord
  8. Ont voit vraiment pas du vert à l'intérieur.
  9. Basically everyone I've talked to is having a really hard time to getting them to do touch-up work. Some units are in better shape than others. They are really trying to get all of the units delivered and have no-one (or a few part-time people) doing the after sales stuff. Some people are considering legal action. It's a bit unreasonable to be waiting 2 months to have your cabinets changed, floors fixed or balconies installed. Otherwise the bones are very good! And once the builder gets out of there and finishes up it should be a great place to live.

    The piling has started

    Samedi il y avait une pelle mécanique et une nouvelle clôture a été installé sur le périmètre du terrain . Est-ce que le début de la construction s'approche?
  12. We have to really stop thinking about Olympic Stadium as a "one sport venue". It was designed (and will thrive) as a multi-purpose large event venue. As Montreal does not have any team that could fill the place on a regular basis. However, the stadium would be viable if it was configured to allow for major annual events to occur there along side the Impact, Allouettes and even Canadiens for their major games (playoffs, All-star games, visiting foreign clubs, an outdoor game for hockey day in Canada, etc...). FYI: I don't consider a field placed in the middle of a sea of concrete 20m away from the stands as configured for soccer or football. There are also lots of other opportunities: If Montreal attracted a major international sporting event each year that would use the stadium for a month at a time (Track and Field world cup, University Games, Jeux de la Francophonie, Commonwealth Games, etc...). It would cost very little to host, and the economic spin-offs + publicity for the city would justify the expense of the renovations. To that we could add major concerts if the acrostics and sound system were improved and other events like the annual show for the Fete National and even a music festival or two. Just lay some grass out and open the roof (once a new one that opens is installed ). Makes the whole issue with organizing concessions and bathrooms much easier then it is in parc jean drapeau! Not to mention trade shows... But it all starts with a new roof and some work on the inside!
  13. Juste ma petite idée : Pourquoi ne pas scinder la ligne bleue en deux branches (rouge-ouest et bleu-est). La ligne rouge incorporerait le train de l’ouest qui serait prolongé en tunnel sous NDG pour passer en surface dans les environs de Ville Saint-Pierre pour continuer sur la rue Victoria avant de se rendre à l’aéroport et par la suite à Fairview. Du côté est, la ligne bleue serait prolongée en surface le long de la rue Jean-Talon pour rejoindre les Galléries d’Anjou. À la station Edouard-Monpetit, les deux lignes partageront un tunnel qui passerait en dessous le Mont-Royal et la rue Peel pour en terminer dans Griffintown. Ce même tunnel serait utilisé par le SLR sur le pont Champlain pour permettre ces trains de rejoindre les stations Bonaventure et Peel. (Et pourrait aussi être utilisé par la ligne Jaune quand cette dernière sera prolongée sur la rive sud.) La proposition nécessiterait la conversion de la ligne de Metro en ligne de SLR qui ne serait pas si difficile, car ils le font à Toronto avec le Eglinton Crosstown. Le grand avantage c’est que pour le même prix du TdO, Champlain SLR et prolongement de la ligne bleue en métro on pourrait rejoindre un bassin de 105,000 personnes additionnelles. J’ai écrit quelque chose plus détaillé sur mon blog personnel: http://www.499km.com/2015/02/est-ce-que-cest-le-temps-de-scinder-la.html
