  1. Je dis pas que c'est pas possible, simplement que c'est une considération. Aussi on s'entend que le contexte urbain est complètement différent.
  2. On s'inquiète que ça va être laid en hauteur, mais on va mettre des bollards partout autour de chaque poutre de support?
  3. Les structures doivent supporter la charges du REM en aérien mais aussi être suffisamment solid pour résister à un impact causé par un véhicule vu qu'il partage la rue.
  4. Même la station Berri-UQAM avait des allures de station japonaise en heure de pointe, si il en était à moins REM-B n'aurai pas de connection avec Berri. Connection à Champs-de-Mars et Place-des-arts pour finir à McGill/sous La Baie avec un long tunnel pour se rendre à REM-A.
  5. Je suis en désaccord, pré-pandémie on pouvais déjà observer une augmentation de l'achalandage sur la ligne verte en heure de pointe significative au cours des 5 dernières années. Hochelaga semblent enfin développer un certain engouement après près de 20 ans de "Hochelaga c'est le prochain plateau". Est-ce que c'est vraiment nécessaire d'attendre que la situation sur la ligne verte devienne comme celle de la orange avant de penser à bonifier/doubler la ligne? Somme nous condamné à répéter les mêmes erreurs?
  6. PR nightmare without a doubt but I persist in saying that the vast majority of the population has a lot more common sense than the media types that get to voice their opinion in their daily/weekly columns (go have a look at the comments on reddit). I personally believe many of the people that signed the open letter against the elevated structure in mid-january did so only because they saw it as an opportunity to push for a more desirable solution but if it came down to choosing an elevated REM-B vs none at all they'd be the first to do a quick 180. Let's be honest here the entire controv
  7. People keep talking about trams as if it's an acceptable alternative and that CDPQi is against it only because of unionized drivers. Let's be honest car drivers are the problematic ones. Go look at Toronto how idiot drivers drive into/hit the tramway infrastructure all the time. On the Spadina line even with the new separate tracks it happens on a regular basis that someone drives on to and gets stuck on the concrete divider, rerouting streetcars. Montreal doesn't have a network of trams lines to deviate on to, one idiot driver and the whole line is paralyzed. Let's not even talk about dr
  8. CDPQ owns the real estate, they don't necessarily operate the hotel. It's fairly common for independent groups to operate hotels that they don't own similar to the franchise model. I don't know if that's the case here. edit: Fairmount itself is the operator, they could take legal action against their landlord/CDPQi.
  9. Oui mais chaque entreprises à une expertise et son créneau c'est pas parce qu'il exploite avec succès un centre commercial qu'il voudront s'aventurer dans le development commercial-mixte. Donc entre se trouver un acheteur ou se faire exproprié complètement j'imagine que la différence était pas si substantielle. J'espère que la STM vas en faire quelle que chose autre qu'un terminal de bus à aire ouverte.
  10. Crazy talk: the main tenant at 1100 Robert-Bourassa is BNC if that gets consolidated to 800 Saint-Jacques (or moved to an other of their offices) how much to buy 1100 Robert-Bourassa knock it down and put the station on Belmont (right above the food court?), you can't completely close Belmont because shipping and receiving for PVM goes through there but a station above it? I can't imagine demand for B class offices being that great on the medium term. Major drawback is that you kill any opportunity of extending the line westward because the cathedral is going nowhere, unless ... CN ...
  11. Agreed, I meant the city when referring to "they". Page should have been turned a while back and been more proactively working on a workable link. Ultimately I think many quickly realized the dalle-parc was at a scale that wasn't likely to happen, but instead of nixing it they just ignored it.
  12. They should have stopped referring to it as dalle-parc years ago, they've set the bar too high for themselves. If you called it a bicycle and pedestrian bridge/link then they probably could have delivered something by now.
  13. To be fair when it comes to the line 1 extension in Toronto it also had other major drivers like making York University more accessible by subway and also Bombardier moving on from Downsview and the developmental opportunity that represents has been on the table for a while (which finally happened when it was sold to PSP in 2018) Back to making an elevated REM more palatable I really hope they look at reducing the number of support columns. I think reducing by 1/3 or half the number of columns would go much further than just prettier ones. Ideally we get both.
  14. Autant que j'ai beaucoup de respect pour Michel C. Auger pour ses analyses politique sur le dossier du REM il omet souvent les faits qu'il sont complètement à l'encontre de sa position. Ce n'est pas la première fois qu'on en entend parler, on le sais depuis longtemps et le ministère à mandater CDPQi en Octobre d'étudier une option rem sur l'Axe est-ouest de la rive-sud. L'idée que les intérêts de la caisse et du transport en commun ne sont pas complémentaire est ridicule. CDPQi s'amuse a construire des infrastructure couteuse sans usagers? Voyons donc. Oui il y a place à discuter
  15. Il on clairement décider de suivre le design des autres immeubles du square Phillips, l'addition à la maison birks, l'édifice avec le Burger King. J'espère qu'il vont mettre l'effort et réouvrir les fenêtres du coté Aylmer.
