    800 rue Saint-Jacques (Banque Nationale) - 46 étages

    It would be nice to see a new (170m-200m) BMO tower in Montreal. They spent over 100 million dollars to re-clad 1st Canadian Place in Toronto when a 144kg chunk of marble fell off in 2007. CIBC is moving 15,000 employees into the new Bay Park Center / CIBC Square (2 towers: 243m and 238m) in Toronto .

    Victoria sur le Parc - 56 étages

    It appears that whoever made that render used this photo below as the background and then added (computer graphic) photo-edited images of the Victoria Parc tower and the 628 St Jacques tower. The authenticity is suspect. The link for the background pic is: https://www.telegraph.co.uk/travel/cruises/articles/cruising-in-canada-montreal-guide-tips/

    TOM Condos - 42 étages

    In Montreal, yes. Heck, they will create a way to put 400 units in a 30 story building.

    YUL - 38, 38 étages

    Il est bon que certains promoteurs conservent des vestiges (façades, etc.) du passé montréalais. Dans ce cas, c'est l'ensemble de la structure qu'ils restaurent (comme CF et Windsor Station). La saveur et le charme de la vieille ville subsistent malgré les nouvelles tours modernes en 'verre' qui sont érigées. On peut signaler ce facteur séduisant dans la plupart des villes européennes plus anciennes (Paris, Londres, Rome ....)

    1201-1215 Phillips Square- ?? étages

    Voici un photo de La Place du Portage (numero 1 en termes de mètres carrés), Hull, PQ. Le gouvernement du Canada est son seul locataire. Le Complexe Desjardins (numero deux) a des bâtiments plus hauts.
  8. Lol .... until the prospective height in meters is released we can only speculate about the impact. The tallest residential building around 36 floors in Icone (37 floors / 148m). BUT- Tom condos has 40 floors and is shorter than Icone. It's hard to forecast the real impact with no height in meters to work with. I like deeworks' 1st impression but I do not want to get too happy. NOTE: If: 1) 120m is the limit; and 2) no derogation is possible, it is easy to measure the correct impact in that case also.

    Tour des Canadiens 3 - 55 étages

    Airbnb limited in Montreal's downtown core (video) https://montreal.ctvnews.ca/airbnb-limited-in-montreal-s-downtown-core-1.3971219 A new bylaw in Ville-Marie will limit short-term rentals to Ste. Catherine Street between St. Mathieu and Amherst streets. The motion was passed on Tuesday night at a borough council meeting. Some residents are relieved, saying that the downtown core had become too populated with short-term rental units. Airbnb has also been a target for complaints across Montreal. Tour des Canadiens (TDC1) has been known to host tourists in town for a weekend, leaving a mess to clean up for those who live in the building year-round. “We woke up the next morning and there was puke on the wall, puke on the carpet, the door was open the guys were passed out everywhere, looked like a bag of coke on the floor,” Real Carbonneau said. He lives in the building year-round, but says that half of it is Airbnb renters. Sometimes they pull the fire alarm as a joke in the middle of the night, causing everyone in the 50-story (TDC1) building to walk down to street level. “We call the police all the time,” he said. “The police are in the building every day, maybe five times a day.” Airbnb supporters say their options are now limited thanks to the new bylaw. “As a landlord and someone who owns one unit, it’s taking choice from me,” Scott Laws said. He owns a single rental unit in the borough. “They’re basically telling me who I can and can’t rent to.” Airbnb proponents say the borough acted too early and should have waited for the Quebec government to clarify the situation as part of legislation that is expected to pass by the end of this week.

    I got three (3) downvotes just for musing if laminated wood has good resistance against fire. I never said that he (the wood) is combustible This post will get downvoted too. Downvotes lower the member's +/- score too. My score was +124. After the three (3) downvotes my score was +121.

    I do not have a background in building safety codes or fire protection regulation. In the U.S. they have something called a CHAR code (fire retardant rating). I wonder how safe this wooden frame is? Remember this?:

    QUAD Windsor: projet global

    Sooooo, redfu is wrong too? I'm just asking. If I'm wrong, I'm wrong. But also, there is no point in arguing with someone who has a "zap" button.

    QUAD Windsor: projet global

    Holy mackerel. It is interesting that you mentioned that the OCPM rejected Pontiac Fairview . This post reminds me of an exchange I had with some "omnipotent" members on this site a couple months ago. Some of the content is still up (under the 600 Peel Thread) but has been deleted by someone "possessed of inifinite ability". On 2018-02-04 at 10:36 AM, newyorkontario (me) wrote: CF wanted 210 meters for 750 Peel (or else they would have to reevaluate their investment). The OPCM said no again. If anything gets built at 750 Peel, the current plans is for 2 "tree stump" office buildings. Now comes the time for 600 Peel. I'm sure I want to build to 210 meters. Again, the OPCM has to give the "green light" to build to such a height. The expression is "3ed time a charm". Hopefully, CF will get the "green light" this time. A voice answered from the abyss writing: It is easy to find the OCPM website which has been submitted for public consultation. No 210-meter tower under the name of 750 Peel has also been subject to public consultation. Fake news. They were submitted to the OCPM by CF they were Canadians' Towers 2 and 3 and CF got what they wanted, which was an increase from 120 to 170. Do not tell anything. A second boss wrote: MTLURB is a serious site where serious people give serious information. This is not the first time you are absolutely everything and it is very frankly very unpleasant. This attitude is just making everyone waste time. Take it or leave it I then replied (with links): 1. The Cadillac Fairview towers submitted to OCPM: http://journalmetro.com/news/montreal/437419/the-project-of-two-new-cadillac-tours-fairview-soumis-a-locpm/ 2. To promote wants to build higher: http://www.tvanouvelles.ca/2014/01/29/un-promoteur-veut-construire-plus-haut 3. CADILLAC FAIRVIEW WANTS TO BUILD UP www.pressreader.com/canada/la-presse/.../282179354731034 Then "a voice from the abyss" said: The article did say that the original PPU asked for a change to 210 meters, but that was modified by the city before it submitted to the OCPM. So, in effect, your articles prove that you are wrong when you say that CF got rejected by the OCPM. CF NEVER subtracted to a formal request for the OCPM for no less than 210 meters, it simply never happened. The four letters "OCPM" evoked my memory. * Note to those who do not like this post * -prove it's wrong. Short buildings.
