  1. Le Drummond - 24 étages

    Great shot though; amazing angle!!
  2. Quartier de la Montagne - 18 étages

    I agree, it's more about the physical building rather than the commercial establishment itself; however, a little context: Wandas is neighbors with or next to a forthcoming Four Season's Hotel, a Chanel boutique, a Ritz-Carlton, Louis Vuitton, Tiffany's etc... you get the point. Cafe Cleopatre is not.
  3. Tour des Canadiens 2 - 51 étages

    Disappointed with design change too but the height and the dark colour of the envelop more than make up for it; I'm just happy there is not pre-fab panels.
  4. 1212 Bishop - 9 étages

    I love it! This is how it should be done.
  5. Laur&nt Clark - 20, 25 étages

    Re: Icone. As long as Phase II doesn't have an aluminum band running up the backside on full view from Mont Royal.
  6. Tour des Canadiens 2 - 51 étages

    I'm just happy there's no pre-fab on this tower a la Roccabella - and the height here will make up for the non-glacial glass.
  7. Quartier de la Montagne - 18 étages

    No need to be pessimistic - they are spending an additional 40MM on the renovations to merge the two brands. The end of 2017 did seem a little ambitious for the opening of the merged store given that the Four Season's Hotel won't even be open until 2018. I just hope the new(er) name isn't a hint that the OGILVY part will eventually be dropped in 10 years.... In my opinion, they should be keeping the OGILVY brand and identity front and center as it is far more iconic to Montreal than Holt's is - even Canada wide. As for the the current holt's building: ground floor + is likely to remain retail.
  8. Saks to open in Montreal/Bay Store

    Uniqlo is basics. And it is beating GAP at it's own game. High quality and inexpensive. H&M and Zara are in a different category.... And what's wrong with getting another major International brand presence in downtown Montreal? Hope they can find a suitable big space.
  9. 628 Saint-Jacques - 35 étages

    With this type of news I hope that Monit rethinks and re-launches their Waldorf=Astoria project. That's one I really want to see built.
  10. Tour des Canadiens 2 - 51 étages

    I like that it's darker than the original renderings.
  11. Appartements Dorchester - 37 étages

    If it mirrors the hotel's facade, taking inspiration from it, then I am very excited about it: that mid century, brutalist aesthetic is very interesting and chic.
  12. Appartements Dorchester - 37 étages

    That area now zoned 35M should all be 80M.
  13. Tour des Canadiens 2 - 51 étages

    If they are privately owned buildings, who is going to do exactly what asap? Things will happen organically. It's up to the owners to invest in their properties. This is an area in transition.
  14. Tour des Canadiens 3 - 55 étages

    A). It's not 1950. B). I highly doubt that all the partners to this project - including the Quebec ones - deliberately made a adverts without French. C). Molson will be the whipping boy in a lot of the Francophone circles sensitive to this because you know, it's Molson and they're the Anglos - they must he behind it.
  15. QUAD Windsor: projet global

    Obviously, their intentions were honorable - otherwise they wouldn't have asked for the height-limit increase on Peel. Not sure why they have downgraded their office component so much after all, that they demand for office space in Montreal is anemic is no surprise. And either way, with the Smith + Gill designs or now with these small boxes, they still have to wait for anchor tenants. Moreover, even the established businesses downtown are going to want new, ultra-modern spaces as the older stock starts to hit 50-60 year old.
