  1. 355, Sainte-Catherine ouest (Musique Plus)

    iconic building, going generic
  2. Tour Stingray (Prince et Wellington) - 8 étages

    big improvement over before. https://goo.gl/maps/ERPuiZjJ66v
  3. Voltige - 26, 20, 14, 6, 6 étages

    the only problem with this project is that it's demolishing a shopping center with a number of well-established businesses. a large commercial component should replace what was lost.
  4. Bleury/De Maisonneuve (Hôtel et appartements)

    Move the mature trees to the church parking lot on Mayor street to finally build the park on the stationnement there?
  5. Le Drummond - 24 étages

    no - a bit shorter, at 23 floors. also, they'll not sell any units on the first floor. so basically, on aggregate the units will be smaller than in drummond i.
  6. Le Drummond - 24 étages

    drummond II has sold 76/210 units, with another 8 units reserved. construction will apparently start this year.
  7. Centra Condos Phase 2 - 16 étages

    is this one just a placeholder? only the tower will rise for now? edit: hm, more likely it's just a bad rendering.
  8. EstWest condos (Square Children’s) - 2 x 27 étages

    je ne dis pas qu'il faut tout protéger du complexe childrens, main des immeubles déco sont rare à montreal, et un edifice déco de cette échelle est quasiment unique. en plus, le childrens c'est connu par tout le monde, c'est un lieu historique, un dépôt du mémoire collectif et même culturel. il mérite rester. refaisons le rez-de-chaussée, élargissons les fenêtres, mais gardons l'édifice principale.

    ^ your sort of thinking is exactly why the old forum was renovated into a garbage can, and why the garbage can was turned into what it is today. you don't realize it, but everything shitty about montreal comes from your way of thinking. the cheapo podium/point towers are already out of vogue in normal cities, divimco/poirier is a shitty mall developer proposing to replace one of the iconic buildings with a griffintown/seville job. it's a deco wall, one of the last in montreal. i'm one of the most aggressive pro-growth people there is, believe me. but this proposal is a stupid mistake. build thousands of units, but keep the main building facing the park. as we've learned many many times, once something is gone, it's gone.
  10. 628 Saint-Jacques - 35 étages

    i know how ugly a city can be. this is a nun's island condo design in a fantastic location. so, like nun's island, it will attract lavallois, south shore people, west island people, and immigrants from asia.
  11. Site de l'ancien Sax Vieux-Montréal (Mondev)- ?? étages

    un maire digne du nom aurait déjà tâché la police de faire que l'incendie volontaire ne serait pas récompensée par un champs libre pour les promoteurs. mais bon, tremblay -> appelbaum -> coderre . . .
  12. 628 Saint-Jacques - 35 étages

    33 stories? 34? it's nice that the parking ingress on saint james will be gone, that's really nice. less nice is that this building looks ridiculous, though i think that the chinese and lavalois who purchase units will be satisfied. still, i'm glad to see something built. square victoria still has a giant hole that residential would fill just as well as commercial. and then we have the surface parking lots...
  13. Réaménagement Place Vauquelin

    ils ont fait pareil aux escaliers rue McTavish.
  14. EstWest condos (Square Children’s) - 2 x 27 étages

    En français: on propose de construire ces deux tours--style île des soeurs il faut absolument le souligner--contre/à la place d'une rénovation d'un des immeubles les plus îcone et connu de Montréal (au moins chez les Montréalais), voire du Québec. Comme si on n'a rien appris de toute notre histoire d'avoir fait la même chose dans le passé. Encore et encore, démolir le patrimoine pour qu'un maire ou les gens investis dans un quartier puissent bénéficier. La surprise chez moi c'est qu'il n'y a pas de movement contre, ni sur un tel forum, ni chez les Bumbarus, que personne ne dit rien là-dessus. Divimco/Poirier, ce n'est pas un gars de chez nous. English: Generic garbage. Replacing one of Montreal's iconic buildings (the deco children's hospital building) with suburban/nun's island-style towers. It's a true shame and people should be angry/active. Political forces mobilized to kill the wonderful Alcan redevelopment but they're silent as this complex faces destruction. It's appalling. Suburban developers coming in to kill one of our most unique shared buildings.
  15. 628 Saint-Jacques - 35 étages

    this will really cut quite the figure in the faubourg des récollets. hopefully it sells well and sets further development into action along saint jacques. little by little...
