  1. HEC Montréal (pavillon centre-ville) - 8 étages

    Pour les embrouillés, un terrain vacant pourrait être "espace vert" ... et certains "espaces verts" de Montréal ont les qualités de terrains vacants! Nous devrions parler de ces lieux en fonction de leurs objectifs, pas de leur couleur,
  2. Métro - Ligne Rose

    Ce sera excellent pour le nord-est, mais aussi pour les quartiers St-Laurent/Rachel (Plateau sud-ouest) et Milton-Parc à l'approche du centre-ville.
  3. HEC Montréal (pavillon centre-ville) - 8 étages

    This is a good move. I used to live by this park and went to it often; I am not concerned about its partial disappearance. Montreal has a problem with the "framing" of its downtown green spaces. All too often, they are not properly hemmed in by streetwalls, which leads to an effect in which the urban intensity sort of leaks out. This one faced the back of those dumpy restaurants on Beaver Hall and the replacement of this awkward interface with a building entrance will make the park more functionally urban and vibrant even if it is smaller. On this note, place du Canada shouldn't exist; Dominion Square would be better were it framed by a prewar block on the south side of RL. As it is, the sub-Ste.-Cat urban vibe peters out across this space to be replaced by a weird edge-of-town feeling around Le 1000. It's like how people argued for the preservation of that idiot space in front of Transat when the Pine/Parc interchange was torn down... were it replaced by a building that properly "announced" the park like New York's Plaza Hotel, there could have been a whole traffic/taxi stand/benches vibe into what is already an enormous park. As it is, we have a yard faced by the rear of a row of townhouses. Montrealers need to stop talking of "green space" and begin talking of parks, plazas and squares. "Green space" is too indefinite.
  4. Appartements Dorchester - 37 étages

    These are low-end apartments from a developer whose site features misspellings. Are they really going to raise a 37-storey tower? I doubt it.
  5. Anglophones generally support extending a 'free-market' stance to language issues because such a stance would favour their – our – tongue. There is no real appreciation in the English-speaking world for the desires of smaller languages, even very big "smaller" languages like French, to maintain themselves. To them it seems stifling and absurd, but their thing is at no risk. Here in Copenhagen, with no historical Anglo presence, I have heard UK expats bemoan the lack of government services in English, even as this city offers one of the most effortless English experiences of any non-Anglo city in the world. There no end to this. In our bones we find it natural to speak English everywhere. We are a very strange bunch and for the moment our two-century hegemony is as difficult to describe for us as water is to a fish. The existence and flourishing of the French fact in North America is a miracle, Montreal is its largest centre, and Louisiana was a very real possibility within living memory. I support French-language protectionism more than I did when I lived in Montreal, and hope when I return to live a more Francophone life there than I did previously.... present post excluded
  6. EstWest condos (Square Children’s) - 2 x 27 étages

    A corner that was once very heavy becomes very light. Montreal loses tissue. This whole thing is a disaster.
  7. CHUM - 17, 20 étages

    also don't contribute to the humane society; hitler loved animals.
  8. Le Peterson - 34 étages

    it's stupid and ungainly.
  9. Marriott Courtyard Montréal Centre-ville - 40 étages (2014)

    avenue du parc has been called "park avenue" by more of its residents for a longer period than called it "l'avenue du parc." fuck, it should be richler street.
  10. Montréal vu de Dallas

    i used to feel similarly about the courthouse and the national bank. now i love them. we're montreal, not unesco quebec.
  11. it's a great building. we can be london for this block.
  12. the name reflects the anglophone history of the area and of the crew in question. the n.d.g. graf culture is pretty anglo: http://www.mook-life.com/
  13. Tour des Canadiens - 50 étages

    the "liking tall skyscrapers is because you need a big dick" thing should probably end. freud has largely been discredited.
