  1. 1437, boul. René-Lévesque Ouest - 16 étages

    Crazy! But it's not long for this world. Great spot for a HILTON.
  2. Développements commerciaux sur Sainte-Catherine

    It's less about Ste Cath and more about the tectonic shift happening with regards to retailing. More online shopping is killing brands and even malls. Some of these older Canadian-based brands have not been able to compete with the big internationals: H&M, Zara, etc... Ste Catherine will be just fine. It's a destination - an experience. It's also going to become more upscale as Holt's moves to Ogilvy's and the Four Seasons opens. The western part is going to become more like Bloor Street in TO.
  3. Tour des Canadiens 2 - 51 étages

    Still looks like a back alley to me. A facade update in the south side of the Bell Centre would be a good idea.
  4. Appartements Dorchester - 37 étages

    Crazier things have happened.
  5. Skyline De Montréal

    The lighting of Sun Life: Bravo! I mean, wow! It's breathtaking. Makes that building take top billing in the night sky.
  6. 1437, boul. René-Lévesque Ouest - 16 étages

    Yes, indeed. But back then it was a beautiful Victorian, mostly residential neighborhood; it was trashed in the 1950's and 60's. By the 70's it was game over.
  7. 1437, boul. René-Lévesque Ouest - 16 étages

    Whoa. That sure does add some heft to the streetscape; a pretty huge impact at only 16 stories. I think it has to do with the volume.
  8. 600 Peel (tour résidentielle 210 mètres) - ?? étages

    A stairwell effet isn't some law of nature in Montreal either; in my opinion, the 120 + zone should have always extended at St Jacques - not St Antoine. As for a 210 m tower at 660 Peel: I won't hold my breath.
  9. Siège social de la Banque Nationale - 36 étages

    No one - even BNC - knows how this will all play out. I have to assume 36 floors was an estimate based on the current zoning. A competing architectural firm could potentially design a building that suits the BNC needs (and is chosen as the winner of the competition) with 45 floors plus a 15M crown totaling 1M SF.
  10. Siège social de la Banque Nationale - 36 étages

    It's going to be just over 1M SF... it's going to be very imposing regards of its 36 floors - which is an estimate at this point.
  11. Icône - 40, 27 étages

    We need a HILTON. Build it as a hotel.
  12. 628 Saint-Jacques - 35 étages

    They tore down the wrong building...
  13. Quartier de la Montagne - 18 étages

    I think the gold grill will come later...
  14. Siège social de la Banque Nationale - 36 étages

    Interesting that they already know how many floors they are going to build - it's one thing to have a square footage in mind but without an actual design? Hopefully this 36 floor announcement is just a preliminary idea and that the architectural plan will evolve. This is the best site to build tall: It would be nice if someone in the city or establishment prodded them to at least build a little taller and build a signature tower.
