    Rioppelle : 300m, 74 étages

    Well ... maybe a new tower (250m-300m) would not be totally out of proportion with VSLP, the new BNC tower, the 3 TDC towers, the two (2) proposed 165m QDS towers etc. in the background. The picture below does not illustrate that (The Avenue, Yul, and " the rest of the current Montreal skyline" are not in the picture). The tallest structure would not stand out so much with more 165m-200m buildings nearby. The Exchange Tower, VSLP, BNC, and 628 St Jacques, would be very near the "supertall" building. Marie city Would finally have it's one (1) "big league" skyscraper without detracting too much from Mount Royal.

    Tour Quartier des Spectacles (projet mixte) - ?? étages

    Thanks to Broccolini for having the "testicular fortitude" to build taller projects (The Avenue and VSLP) and inspiring other builders to do the same thing.

    Solstice - 44 étages

    Okay ... the two (2) Rocabella towers are both 147m tall. The Avenue is 183m tall. The CentraCondo project will be a little shorter (than Rocabella). If the Soltice tower were anywhere between 160-180m tall, this cluster of buildings would have more depth, variety, and dimension.

    Victoria sur le Parc - 55 étages

    Well ... I would think those photos were posted only in the brochure. I saw a new rendering this morning but I did not bother to post. The photo you take below is the best representation of this project. You got a clear picture of the model. The only better version would be the actual tower herself. She is a beauty. You got the "scoop", indeed.

    Victoria sur le Parc - 55 étages

    I hope this project gives somebody ambition to re-think the 750 Peel project; and the three proposed condo towers at 600 Peel.

    Victoria sur le Parc - 55 étages

    http://700.manaweb.ca/specifications/?lang=fr New pictures but information published previously. These renderings were slightly different from the last ones. This reminds me of the many CF rendering changes (Windsor Quad). Alas, I do not expect disappointment with the final Broccolini product (Victoria), however. Imagine if L'Avenue were 200 metres tall like Victoria.

    Le Phare - 65 étages

    https://www.lesoleil.com/opinions/le-phare-un-projet-contre-nature-272e82bd94acd12a74dffba0eee833e5 The Lighthouse, a project against nature POINT OF VIEW The sun Chicago is the city that gave birth to skyscrapers. Louis Sullivan, architect (1856-1924), is the reference. Beyond this new way of building, high up, made of skyscrapers, Sullivan had a dream: that of bringing nature into the cities. What about Quebec? Curieusement in Quebec, it does the reverse. We have an exceptional link with nature and, to be like "all the big cities of the world", we will use a single skyscraper to assert and break this link that distinguishes us: the real estate project Le Phare, without With regard to the landscape, by appropriating a piece of sky, if not the whole horizon, will break this link with nature, brutally, heavily, without elegance. This is probably the last water hammer of a "generation that ate chicken rather than eggs", thus capturing capital rather than profiting only by safeguarding heritage for future generations. "Architecture is the mirror of society," said Sullivan. At a time when people are mobilizing to save the planet, breaking the link of a city with nature is not the best idea, it is against the nature and against nature. Nature Opting for tall buildings in Quebec, even skyscrapers, without dealing with the landscape, both urban and natural, is risky, even risky: Quebec is a horizontal city. Nothing ordinary in this horizontality. It follows the contours of the St. Lawrence Valley, a melting pot of the former Champlain Sea, bordered by the Laurentians to the north and the Adirondack Mountains to the south. In its main part, the city stretches along a narrow rock pointing to the east, far away, where the waters of the Champlain Sea have returned, hundreds of kilometers away, there are hundreds of years to the Atlantic Ocean. This is the great gesture of the city of Quebec: horizontally, well set in the landscape, pointing to the east, frank as the rock on which sits the city for centuries, with, down, on its flank south, a thin stream of Champlain's sea, which has since become the St. Lawrence River, which persists. Quebec City is home to the St. Lawrence Valley, the former Sea of Champlain, a vast open space overlooking the sky and the horizon. Unexpected wealth. Perspectives Any observer will have noticed: the sky of Quebec, with these multiple points of view towards the horizon, is a value sought. The recent announcement of three projects is revealing: one takes the sky straight, the second advances, and the third gives it back. The first project, Le Phare, a real estate investment with a shopping center and a mix of functions, will benefit from the setting up of a structuring transport system, the tramway. This element, essential to the success of the project, makes it possible to make larger buildings taller, higher up on the podium: skyscrapers, unobstructed views, taking the Quebec skies, taking capital. The second project involves the transformation, into a park, of the site of the former church of St. Vincent de Paul, Abraham's coast. "If you go to see the point of view it gives, it's beautiful," said the mayor. Indeed, the sunsets, to the west, above the mountains, can be admired there. On the other hand, time is running out, because the last buildings built in the city center, a little too high, partly mask the show: buildings in heights, partial view, "city that sinks", horizon that closes. The third project takes another look, extremely rare, even exceptional: the demolition, during renovations, of the six upper floors of the main tower of the Hôtel-Dieu hospital in Old Québec, at the request of the Augustinian congregation. Any walker has already seen his eyes embarrassed by this building, too high, poorly designed, mechanical roof visible: decision-making, harmonization of heights, horizon found, immensity as far as the eye can see. The dream It is fascinating to note the admiration of the Mayor of Quebec for the "mirrors of water", the result of a trip to Bordeaux, France, where, in 2006, Place de la Bourse of water that reflects, dramatically, the environment, all around. It is fascinating to note that here in Quebec, we already have this "mirror of water", this spectacle, before us, in us, deployed towards and in the horizon. The mayor, however, does not see it: the horizon of Quebec is a common good. And if "Venice reflects its palaces in its waters," it is easy to see that Quebec's skyline is reflected and reversed in the eyes of visitors and Quebecers, impregnated and dazzled by the beauty of the show, the landscape: it is the very foundation of the dream. He is there, the "mirror of water". Horizontally, at the end of a street, in the middle of a square, a gazebo, a park ... buildings and well-designed places. With all these "reflections", Quebec becomes a jewel set with diamonds. Louis Sullivan, architect, considered the initiator of the skyscrapers, had the dream of bringing nature into the cities. The city, if it is authentic, is anchored in the dream just as the dream is anchored in the city: it is inseparable. The search for a balanced urban composition in the landscape is desirable. The city of Quebec unfolds and opens towards the horizon, towards the "sea", towards the dream, in harmony with nature: verticality is acceptable in Quebec, no doubt, but the right measure remains in place, always We are rich because we have a horizon. It's our capital.

    Tour des Canadiens 2 - 51 étages

    I did not attend the meeting today in person but this was just released: https://www.newswire.ca/news-releases/montreals-most-desirable-residential-project-tour-des-canadiens-2--3-reveals-the-official-start-of-construction-of-its-quad-windsor-skybridge-693079651.html Cadillac Fairview, Canderel, the Fonds immobilier de solidarité FTQ and the Club de hockey Canadien announced the start of construction of the Quad Windsor Skybridge that will be built across St. Antoine Street, along with exciting news about Tour des Canadiens 3 (TDC3). This architectural landmark is set to be completed by mid-2019 and will connect Tour des Canadiens 2 (TDC2) and TDC3 to Deloitte Tower and the Bell Centre, creating a direct link between the new Quad Windsor community and Montréal's extensive underground network (RÉSO) as well as the future REM (Réseau express métropolitain). Official launch of the start of construction of the Quad Windsor Skybridge which will connect Tour des Canadiens 2 (TDC2) and TDC3 to Deloitte Tower and the Bell Centre (CNW Group/Tour des Canadiens 2 & 3) Accessible to the public, the future Quad Windsor Skybridge will serve not only as an important pedestrian link between downtown Montréal and the neighbourhoods to the south, but also provide a contemporary work of art adding excitement to the area's urban design. More than 200 feet long and 20 feet above the ground, the new Quad Windsor Skybridge structure will be made of 3 X 3 ft. steel tubes as well as insulated glazed units, allowing maximum transparency. The cladding of the bridge will be made of aluminum panels, while the columns will be in precast concrete. Finally, the lighting concept has been conceived by the renowned Ombrages lighting design and engineering firm, already known for the illumination of the Jacques-Cartier bridge and many other Montréal icons such as the Olympic Park Tower, Montréal Casino and Le Quai de l'Horloge. Their design will surely give a spectacular view of the Quad Windsor Skybridge at night. A bridge between two boroughs With its connection to the atrium of TDC2, the future skybridge will allow residents and visitors alike to have unprecedented access to the vibrant Quad Windsor, a new Montréal district that is creating a crucial link between downtown Montréal and École de technologie supérieure (ÉTS), Griffintown as well as Little Burgundy. In connecting with the 32 km of underground passages (RÉSO), the Quad Windsor Skybridge will also provide easy access, without ever having to step outside, to the many restaurants, hotels, cinemas, boutiques, museums, offices, educational institutions and other facilities that make Montréal a great city to live in, to work and to enjoy. Montréalers and tourists will be able to enjoy services and entertainment throughout the city using its extensive bicycle network and a public transit network that includes the city's métro, busses, commuter trains and the future Réseau express métropolitain (REM) that will extend as far as Montréal's Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport. "Cadillac Fairview is proud to serve as the catalyst in the transformation of Montréal's downtown core by developing Quad Windsor, a vibrant new district that links the city's financial core to the south," said Brian Salpeter, Cadillac Fairview Senior Vice President of Development, Eastern Canada. "We are committed to building best-in-class and first-to-market projects, such as the three Tour des Canadiens residential towers, Deloitte Tower, the Rio Tinto Courtyard and a revitalized Windsor Station, and we are proud to announce the start of construction of the Quad Windsor Skybridge, which will serve as a physical and symbolic connection between downtown Montréal, Griffintown and beyond." "A new vision of urban development must be applied to future projects in Montréal, as well as elsewhere in Québec, to be recognized worldwide as a city that excels in intelligent and sustainable development. The future Quad Windsor Skybridge is a project that symbolizes, with success, the revitalization of this sector," added Carole Handfield, FTQ Fonds immobilier de solidarité Vice President, Investments. The CH signature as the project's international beacon Whether it's the Bell Centre, located in the heart of the project, or the three prestigious residential towers bearing the CH trademark, the new residential project in Quad Windsor reflects the energy of the Montréal Canadiens, one of the world's most famous and successful professional sport franchises. Offering residences of unrivalled quality, TDC3, the latest of the three towers to be built, will feature 574 refined urban condominiums as well as exceptional suites from the Penthouse collection. Designed by Montréal's interior design firm Camdi, three of these exclusive penthouses located on the 54th floor will feature exclusive Montréal Canadiens-inspired finishes with iconic Habs motifs – a unique opportunity that no other residential project will offer in Montréal. Spacious layouts are embellished with chic red accents including kitchen cabinetry in a high gloss piano finish and a designer pro range stove by Bertazzoni. Custom paintings by Montréal-based, internationally renowned artist Alexander Slim will also decorate the walls of these three unique upper suites. All penthouse residents and their guests will enjoy spectacular views of the St. Lawrence River, Mount Royal, downtown Montréal as well as the greenery of the new Ville-Marie municipal park that will be located in the heart of Quad Windsor. Urban townhomes overlooking lush greenspace While the surroundings of the Bell Centre and Windsor Station will be entirely transformed by the luxurious design of the future Quad Windsor Skybridge of TDC2 and TDC3 and the new facades on St-Antoine Street, the southern section of Quad Windsor will not be left untouched. TDC3 will include 15 luxury townhomes –rare assets in the heart of downtown. The owners of these exclusive 3-bedroom family-sized homes will enjoy all the mix of city life with suburban comfort. Like all TDC3 residents, they will be able to take advantage of the exclusive amenities in the building while having access to the new Ville-Marie city park, a green oasis that will transform the area just to the project's south. "Few projects in the world can boast of offering their residents access to both bustling downtown life as well as a lush greenspace. At TDC3, providing access through the Quad Windsor Skybridge reflects our desire to offer the best in urban living, allowing both residents and those who pass through an easy way to enjoy the many restaurants, café-terraces, cinemas, theaters, museums and stores that make Montréal such a special place to live, work and visit," concluded Daniel Peritz, Senior Vice President at Canderel.

    Could a NEW Urban Plan be coming? Globe and Mail article: Montreal reboots its planning model in midst of rapid growth. https://www.theglobeandmail.com/real-estate/article-montreal-reboots-its-planning-model-in-midst-of-rapid-growth/ I'm probably one of the few who has a subscription to this publication or even considers its content to be newsworthy. According to this article, Montreal's current blueprint for future growth and development dates back to 2004. The part that got my attention in urban planning. "If we want to keep the downtown strong, just like Manhattan, we're going to allow people to build up." Hopefully, the height restriction will be modified in a positive manner. Another noteworthy section mentions: "One key challenge that needs to be addressed in a coherent and public manner, is the transformation of several disused institutional, industrial and commercial buildings - such as the Royal Victoria Hospital and the historic Molson brewery facilities." "A new plan must be more important to the need for finding new uses for historically important buildings such as the Royal Victoria and God Hotel hospitals." Good idea, maybe the old Children's Hospital could have been used instead of being demolished.

    No ... but an iconic condo project like the Broccolini (700 St. Jacques) would be nice. This would never happen though, given how they "punted the ball" with the 750 Peel tower. Still no word about the towers at 600 Peel.
