  1. Providing an opportunity to a landlord to destroy a historic bldg caused by neglect should not be upheld.
  2. law 11 in Manhattan. Every 5 years the masonry of buildings must be re-pointed. Waiting 20+ years is a disaster for our heritage.
  3. Three or four mega tall towers would have been sufficient to create enough sq ft for year to come, multi-purpose, and would have protected views of Mont Royal. I defy anyone downtown, Griffintown, Old Montreal to show me a view of the mountain. You need to live on the South Shore to see it. And, most views are not oriented towards Montreal from this vantage point. They put a highway along the St-Lawrence River - who wants to live there? i say build fewer buildings, but when you do, build it tall, and make it a landmark. Too much crap is going up. Pre-fab. Destroying Montreal.
  4. I read some time ago, BG is going to do a WeWork style concept. Looks like a new entrance for a new architectural branding.
  5. I believe this was one of the first car dealership showrooms they should have kept the greystone façade
  6. I still don’t like the BN tower. Good work!
  7. Too modern looks like a funeral home you see this massive cathedral and imagine all the glory that it must be and arrive to admire concrete biggest letdown
  8. Boston Bruins Bas brun Brun caca Brown-out désoé... i feel your pain
  9. I hope they rebuild the stone and iron fence
  10. I hate brown and green personal issue however, with all construction in Montreal being blue glass - it may be a good contrast
  11. Honestly, the only thing that can compete with any other city is our diversity, trying to be skyscraper city on the cheap is not what Montreal should aspire to be, scale projects like Maison Alcan or Commerce Mondial should be what Montreal aims to be - respectful of the past, human scale, and integration with the built fabric. non-descript towers that are common to every market like the CH condos shoukd not be our Glory
