    Best Western Ville-marie (travaux de façade)

    ^ wow, the first photo, I had no idea what I was looking at until I saw the McGill College Building roof (today called the Arts Building for some stupid reason).

    Louis de Villeray - 3 étages

    Absurdly low rise, but better than a parking lot.

    Le Smith - 26 étages

    It's bland, but it's not evil or infernal. Acceptable, and great density.
  4. orages lointains

    6250 Lennox - 10 étages

    ^ Yeah, it's so terrible to have lots of affordable housing in a dense area near transit and work.

    Rue Pierce et Saint-Catherine Ouest (projet mixte)

    Yeah, it would be a terrible shame to demolish all of these buildings.

    Hôtel 1419 Clark (terrain screaming eagle) - 8 étages

    Hopefully that means that the Saint Laurent frontage will be occupied by commercial space? But it is a smart move to put it on Clark. No parking garage?

    Château d'Ivoire - 4 étages

    One of the worst projects in all of Montreal right now. Makes me feel angry that the city allowed this. The planning department in Montreal is mostly worthless and should be shorn of its power, but this is the sort of thing that they actually should use their power to stop. 1. Loses density 2. Bad design 3. Introduces parking space and a parking ingress 4. Heritage loss

    Art de VIVRE (Marché Saint-Jacques)

    Wonderful building, was crazy to let some private developers take this over and build condos up there. People will look back on these sorts of deals will be looked back on with real scorn. Very sad, no matter how nice it is. We can't get these buildings back, and we definitely will not build any more along these lines.

    Bleury/Sherbrooke - +- 25 étages

    Peterson 250 units + C-Lofts 156 units + Smith 180 units = 586. Not bad. This new one looks like it could add 200 more. With all the hotels on Sherbrooke plus the Louis Boheme, and new Domtar hotel, the night time pedestrian traffic should be pretty good. Now if only they would develop this densely in more areas! Also, this: to this: No me gusta!

    McGill: RVH Campus

    Very nice.

    Coin de la Gauchetiere et Saint Dominique - 7 étages

    Oh man, this is a great project. Could use about 100 of these across the Plateau, minus the parking.

    1000 de la Montagne (Centra) - 45 étages

    MacDonalds will go eventually, not many people eat like that anymore. The more worrying issue is that they killed the second tower! NO!

    Tour Quartier des Spectacles (projet mixte) - ?? étages

    To me, that looks like an office tower, which means it probably won't be built either. But the FTQ is a serious and surprisingly aggressive player, and I wonder if it might be condos or even rental (please oh please), which would make it likely to go very quickly. Do we know?

    Brix (400 Dowd) - 6, 16 étages

    No kidding. A real missed opportunity.
