  1. Indeed, this part of town is a mystery to me, a tiny strip wedged in between the very hip and rejuvenated Concordia neighborhood/Asia town and Westmount. Such a head-scratcher.
  2. Réseaux sociaux is a big one. Why make the effort in going out - get dressed, drive/park downtown, spend money on overpriced alcohol - in the hopes of picking up a chick, when you could simply use tinder (or similar) and normal priced alcohol from saq. The times have changed.
  3. “Dramatically increasing its footprint” 🤦‍♂️
  4. https://montrealgazette.com/news/local-news/thursdays-will-not-reopen-and-condos-will-likely-be-built-at-site-owner-says?utm_medium=Social&utm_source=Facebook#Echobox=1578085568 There are no plans to reopen Thursday’s Bar and Bistro, a Crescent St. landmark for nearly 50 years, and the building that houses the restaurant could be sold to condo developers in coming months. The Ragueneau family, which owns the building, confirmed Friday it’s looking to move on from the restaurant business and already has a handful of potential buyers interested in the building for condo purposes.
  5. Fermeture «sauvage» d'une institution montréalaise https://www.tvanouvelles.ca/2020/01/02/fermeture-sauvage-dune-institution-montrealaise Le bâtiment de la rue Crescent sera par ailleurs mis en vente au cours des prochaines semaines et pourrait changer de vocation.
  6. Generous. The East-West sides are horrendous.

    Interesting article on CNN which reinforces my belief that Royalmount will thrive as it differs from a traditional mall: https://www.cnn.com/2019/11/23/economy/luxury-malls-holiday-shopping/index.html?utm_term=link&utm_content=2019-12-01T06%3A01%3A06&utm_source=fbbusiness&utm_medium=social “Shopping centers catering to the upper middle class and affluent -- as well as tourists -- are thriving thanks to a focus on higher-end brands like Louis Vuitton and Gucci and the presence of Apple (AAPL) stores and Tesla (TSLA)showrooms in their malls.”
  8. J’ai jamais compris le besoin d’avoir des escaliers...special city permits?
  9. We’re on our way to creating such a dull skyline.
  10. Indeed. Good for those already invested. For others, get in the game before it’s too late.
  11. I thought it was 1 traffic lane and 1 offload lane, like the picture in the header.
  12. Hard to be optimistic. I bet drivers will create 2 lanes for themselves because traffic will be nightmarish, due to sheer volume, cars wanting to turn at lights but cannot due to pedestrian traffic, cars double parking to “run in to” a store, snow/ice, etc. I would love to be proven wrong.
