  1. Tour des Canadiens - 50 étages

    As an architect, I can truly say that I am very disappointed with this project. It’s quite ironic that out of the many towers going up around the Bell Center, the Tour des Canadiens (which will arguably have the most impact on the skyline) also happens to be the tower with the least vision and creativity. Why is it that we are still building concrete boxes like back in the 70s? I understand that in the field of architecture, it is important to respect the client’s needs and budget, and that often when the budget is tight, the quality of the design unfortunately suffers. But from the prestigious and wealthy organizations developing this project (Montreal Canadiens, Cadillac Fairview), I expected more. From the architecture firms involved, one of which is considered to be amongst the better firms in the city, I expected more. And from the city, who ultimately approved this project, this was a missed opportunity on their part to push for something other than mediocrity. It’s astonishingly sad when a building’s most interesting feature happens to be its indoor parking garage…
  2. L'Avenue - 50 étages

    Merci Here's another view from the 720 east. Rocco, tu as raison, les tours drummond n'étaient pas à la bonne hauteur. J'ai corrigé l'erreur (they were about 9-10m too short)... I only included projects that have been approved or are under construction, so no overdale yet!
  3. L'Avenue - 50 étages

    Wasn't sure where to put this, but here's L'Avenue's impact on the skyline (along with most of the other major projects that are approved/under construction)
  4. Rond Point Dorval -224M$

    There are rumours that the "overpass to nowhere" was built too low to go over the train tracks... Any news on this?
