  1. What a horrible looking building. This chubby shouldn't be anywhere near downtown imo.
  2. I think this is an ugly and bland building. I cannot see what everyone sees in this. I think it takes away from the splendor of the 2 largest buildings that are currently U/C. Especially that blind wall! Hideous!
  3. Ils n'ont jamais obtenu les permis nécessaire pour la partie résidentiel.
  4. I've been saying this since before the pandemic. Maybe our sources are the same. The residential part was cancelled in January. I am not sure of the commercial part but the cranes will come down before winter.
  5. What is it about 5G and the Neuralink project (has nothing to do with Boring Company) that you don't think will happen? 5G is a few years away from mass use and even if Neuralink is abandonned by Musk, someone else will do it. IMO, Autonomous pods or automous buses are the future not a static track. What do you think a fleet of automous pods or buses will do to the STM? It'll be worse than what uber did to the taxi industry. There is nothing wrong with a moratorium, it has been done before. The total will be more than 6 billion by the end of this project of our money when public transit r
  6. There is no denying that even before this pandemic, businesses were more opt to explore remote work and remote learning, especially workplace training. All was on an uptrend. The events of this year just accelaerated the inevitable. Billions are being invested in networks to facilitate the transition. We have yet to see the true power of 5G and Elon Musk's Neuralink, which will radically change the world especially health and education. A huge amount of transit movement is students and the workforce which has been affected most likely permanantly. My work which was ademently opposed to re
  7. Focus on Phase I only since it is most advanced and will be most widely used. Delay or cancel the rest. It seems like the only logical thing to do now. I was really excited about this project but I can see long term, it just won't be profitable or used much at all. They need to think long term. Businesses see the advantage of remote work both in terms of productivity going up and work-life balance since you no longer commute. But especially bottom line. Right now, businesses are absorbing the loss in revenue but they cannot continue for much longer. Universities will close because a large prop
  8. The governement should seriously consider delaying or stoppping construction of this project especially in certain areas. It is a huge waste of funds imo. The pandemic accelerated the trend towards remote work and remote learning. Not only will businesses reduce their square footage when their lease comes up, in a few years, universities/high schools will close also. This new transport system will be an underused and expensive to maintain white elephant. They also fail to plan for driverless taxis and autonomous vehicules.
  9. You have nothing to worry about. Smoke and mirriors show.
  10. petit rappel que ceci est un discussion sur: COVID-19: L'effet sur l'économie et sur l'immobilier à Montréal
  11. Maybe it is weather related. Maybe we screwed ourselves by staying indoors. The sun is up much longer here this time of year then any other major North American city. We will see what happens when the days get shorter and we go back indoors.
  12. This project is dead not because of the commercial aspect, it is the residential part that was never approved and had very heavy opposers. The cranes will come down before the end of the year.
  13. I posted it last Sunday actually. La Presse reporters often use mtlurb.com for their reporting work.
