    REM: Expansion future

    I guess what throws the whole thing off is how the river runs due north as it passes downtown Montreal.

    REM: Expansion future

    I am always fascinated about the geographic orientation of Montreal. Every time I approach the city or view it from outside, I see the tilt of its axis. Once I am in the city, streets parallel to R-L settle to east/west. Mont-Tremblant to MTL, I can see calling north/south. But, the MTL to Sherbrooke segment?
  3. I always liked the effect of PVM's rotating lights as they hit the antenna atop CIBC.
  4. My first step out into Montreal was from a bustling Windsor Station. I looked up at the Laurentian (where we were to stay) and the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce with its antenna souring behind it. The hotel had its main entrance on Peel and another one on Dorchester BLVD. Some restaurants and stores opened onto the street. Across Dorchester was the CIBC tower with its open plaza fronting on Dominion Square and observation deck on the 45th floor. The Windsor Hotel was still open at the time as well. Today, this section of Peel Street feels a little sterile in comparison.

  6. I think there might be a more accurate representation of Tour CIBC in the data base that is not shown on the main diagram page.
  7. Though not the simplest solution, I would like to see this grand entrance on RL. It would occupy the eastern portion of the Queen E opposite the PVM plaza and be aligned with the McGill College corridor. This entrance would be a level above the stations main floor while still opening up into the great hall. In this vision, Gare Centrale could be considered the southern terminus of the McGill College promenade.

    Place Bonaventure

    Could a relocated Gare Central be a component in this structure?
  9. How tall is the central pylon? I think I heard somewhere it will be about 180 meters?
  10. Where do you see this great entrance? Mansfield? University? both?

    Métro: Ligne Rose

    Has there ever been any talk about making the "CHAMP DE MARS" station into a transfer station with the YELLOW line? Wouldn't that give some relief to BERRI?
  12. Could a bridge that extends the PVM plaza over the parking entrance and Cathcart Street connect to McGill College?
  13. When I first looked at this image, I imagined that I was in front of the Marriott Chateau Champlain. I wish something like this was in place of the Laurentien Building.
  14. I always thought that green was a dominating color on the Montreal skyline.
  15. It looks like there should be a new street connection between Mountain and Lucien-L'Allier.
