    Hôtel Laurentien

    My first step out into Montreal was from a bustling Windsor Station. I looked up at the Laurentian (where we were to stay) and the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce with its antenna souring behind it. The hotel had its main entrance on Peel and another one on Dorchester BLVD. Some restaurants and stores opened onto the street. Across Dorchester was the CIBC tower with its open plaza fronting on Dominion Square and observation deck on the 45th floor. The Windsor Hotel was still open at the time as well. Today, this section of Peel Street feels a little sterile in comparison.

    I think there might be a more accurate representation of Tour CIBC in the data base that is not shown on the main diagram page.
  4. Though not the simplest solution, I would like to see this grand entrance on RL. It would occupy the eastern portion of the Queen E opposite the PVM plaza and be aligned with the McGill College corridor. This entrance would be a level above the stations main floor while still opening up into the great hall. In this vision, Gare Centrale could be considered the southern terminus of the McGill College promenade.

    Place Bonaventure

    Could a relocated Gare Central be a component in this structure?

    Nouveau Pont Champlain

    How tall is the central pylon? I think I heard somewhere it will be about 180 meters?
  7. Where do you see this great entrance? Mansfield? University? both?

    Métro: Ligne Rose

    Has there ever been any talk about making the "CHAMP DE MARS" station into a transfer station with the YELLOW line? Wouldn't that give some relief to BERRI?
  9. Could a bridge that extends the PVM plaza over the parking entrance and Cathcart Street connect to McGill College?

    628 Saint-Jacques - 35 étages

    When I first looked at this image, I imagined that I was in front of the Marriott Chateau Champlain. I wish something like this was in place of the Laurentien Building.

    Quartier de la Montagne - 18 étages

    I always thought that green was a dominating color on the Montreal skyline.

    Le Roccabella - 40, 40 étages (2018)

    It looks like there should be a new street connection between Mountain and Lucien-L'Allier.

    Maison Manuvie - 28 étages

    134 meters seems a bit high. Is the Tour Belle really taller than Tour Scotia?
  14. I would really like to see a Metro entrance in the southern portion of Place-Du-Canada. I remember seeing a sign that said that the long connection to the Bell Centre was closed during (or before and after) events. Is that true? If that is the case, could an additional point of egress here be a solution?

    Place Bonaventure

    Finally registered. Very unique (and under appreciated) Building. However, I don't really care for the (suburban style) design of the auto drop off on Mansfield Street. I would love to see Central Station shifted to the south and integrated into the Building. There would be grand entrances on the corners of Mansfield and University. That, in turn, would open up the parcel to the north.
