  1. Apologies if I post in English only. I would need some advice from an architect familiar with the building code applied in Montreal. Indeed I have a bedroom and a bathroom in my condo unit with two skylights and no windows. The skylight in the bedroom could be opened from the room in the past in order to allow some air ventilation. However as the skylight was leaking, it has been sealed from outside and now it cannot be opened anymore. Is there in the building code applied in Quebec a rule that requires a skylight that can be opened if installed in a room without windows? I would like to find a reference to some regulations, if exists, to point out to my condo administrator who was in charge for the reparation that it cannot be done in this way. Merci.
  2. So what kind of view do you have?
  3. Un article du New York Time sur un penthouse à Vendre à Montréal. à Source: New York Time Album Photo INTERNATIONAL REAL ESTATE For Sale in ... Montreal By CLAIRE McGUIRE WHAT A one-bedroom penthouse apartment with industrial details and panoramic views of Montreal HOW MUCH 1,995,000 Canadian dollars ($1,866,400) SETTING This 10-story former factory was built in 1912 in the Paper Mill District near the financial district and Old Montreal. It shares the top floor with two other apartments, and overlooks several museums, the old port and the Chinatown neighborhood. Montreal is situated on several islands at the point where the Saint Lawrence and Ottawa rivers merge. It is about 325 miles north of New York City. Montreal is known internationally for its architecture and design, its strong arts scene and its vibrant gay community. INSIDE The apartment has an open layout; only the bedroom, bathrooms and a sitting room are enclosed. It would be easy to create an additional bedroom. The bedroom has an en suite bathroom and a walk-in closet with one wall made of opaque glass. There is a double-sided fireplace between the living room and the kitchen. The floors are of blue-stained hardwood in some places and slate tile in others. The high ceilings, painted brick walls and textured concrete pillars recall the building’s industrial history. The apartment’s seven arched windows overlook the city, three at the front of the building and four along one side. OUTSIDE A skylight in the kitchen could be enlarged to provide roof access, and the apartment’s owners have the right to create a private rooftop garden. The ground floor of the building has a restaurant, and all building entrances have electronic security doors. The apartment comes with two indoor parking spaces. Next door, the grounds of St. Patrick Church offer the nearest green space. The area has many bicycle paths, and the building is within walking distance of the city’s financial district, as well as cafes, museums and art galleries. HOW TO GET THERE The apartment is 25 minutes by car from the airport, and two blocks from Montreal’s main train station. WHO BUYS IN MONTREAL Louise Latreille, a real estate agent with Sotheby’s International Realty Quebec, said that she had seen an increase in buyers from Morocco, Lebanon, United Arab Emirates, China and Japan — and that many foreigners were buying condos for their college-age children. Most of the city’s American buyers spend winters in Florida or California and summers in Montreal, she added. European buyers tend to look for homes in the mountains, not in Montreal itself. Meanwhile, many Canadian empty-nesters are moving back to the city, looking for “something chic and exclusive,” she said. MARKET OVERVIEW Sandra Girard, senior analyst of the Montreal market for the Canadian Mortgage and Housing Corporation, says the market has been less active this year than it was in 2007. According to Ms. Girard, the number of transactions in the first half of 2008 was 3 percent lower than in the same period last year. However, 2007 broke records for the number of real estate transactions, making a slight slow-down inevitable, because “the activity registered in 2007 is difficult to sustain.” Meanwhile, sales prices continue to increase at a slower rate. Ms. Girard said overall prices for residential real estate increased 4 percent in the first half of 2008, compared to 8 percent in the same period last year. Ms. Latreille says condominiums continue to be popular among buyers in Montreal. A report by the Canadian Mortgage and Housing Corporation and the Greater Montreal Real Estate Board shows that prices for single-family detached homes increased less than 2 percent in the 12-month period to June 2008, while condo prices increased more than 7 percent over the same period. BUYING BASICS Stéphane Hardouin, a notary and partner in the law firm Sylvestre Lagasse in Sherbrooke, Quebec, says legal fees in Quebec are usually 1,200 to 1,800 Canadian dollars ($1,146 to $1,719). If the property is financed, he said, buyers usually pay an additional 750 Canadian dollars ($716) to the notary, and a mortgage registration fee of 137 Canadian dollars ($131). Buyers pay for an inspection, costing 600 to 1000 Canadian dollars ($573 to $955). Mr. Hardouin says the seller pays around 1,000 Canadian dollars ($955) for a surveyor’s certificate, and also the real estate agent’s commission of 5 to 7 percent. A goods and services tax, or sales tax, is assessed on new homes and on real estate agent commissions, he said. This tax is 12.875 percent. Land transfer taxes in Canada are different for each province. In Quebec, transfer taxes are paid directly to the municipality, Mr. Hardouin said. Montreal’s transfer tax, commonly called the “welcome tax,” has a graduated structure based on the purchase price. The first 50,000 Canadian dollars ($47,800) is taxed at 0.5 percent. The next 200,000 Canadian dollars ($191,100) is taxed at 1 percent, and amounts over 250,000 Canadian dollars ($238,900) are taxed at 1.5 percent, he said.

Municipal property taxes for this apartment are estimated at 11,800 Canadian dollars ($11,255) a year. Ms. Latreille says this figure is 25 percent lower than the normal tax rate because the building is historical. Additionally, school tax is 2,535 Canadian dollars ($2,372) per year.

  4. Voici comment nos projets (une "tour" de 7 étages) naissent à Montréal: dans la contreverse! Publié le 20 janvier 2011 à 08h18 | Mis à jour à 08h18 Le MBAM s'oppose à la construction d'une tour Gabriel Béland La Presse Le tout nouveau pavillon du MBAM devait avoir une vue imprenable sur le mont Royal. Dans le plan des architectes, les visiteurs devaient pouvoir contempler les oeuvres d'art tout en admirant la montagne. Mais tout ça est maintenant mis en péril par le projet de construction d'une tour de 25 m tout près du musée, a appris La Presse. Cette tour d'habitation, qui serait érigée sur le terrain où se trouve l'actuelle maison Redpath, contreviendrait au règlement d'urbanisme de l'arrondissement et viendrait bloquer la vue sur le mont Royal, dénonce le Musée des beaux-arts de Montréal. Sa directrice générale, Nathalie Bondil, a même écrit au maire Gérald Tremblay pour l'exhorter à bloquer le projet. Elle demande que le futur immeuble, situé à un jet de pierre du musée et de son annexe, respecte le plan d'urbanisme et n'excède pas 16 m de hauteur. «Le Musée s'est astreint à concevoir son projet d'annexe en fonction du règlement de zonage, rappelle le directeur de l'administration du MBAM, Paul Lavallée. La Ville nous a obligés à en limiter le volume. Et puis arrive ce projet d'un promoteur privé qui, lui, obtient une dérogation. C'est majeur.» Sept étages plutôt que trois Amos et Michael Sochaczevski, propriétaires de la maison Redpath, veulent la démolir presque entièrement. À la place de l'immeuble patrimonial, ils entendent ériger une tour de 25 m et 7 étages, même si le règlement d'urbanisme interdit de dépasser 16 m et 3 étages. Ville-Marie et son maire, Gérald Tremblay, ont donné leur accord au projet et à une série de dérogations au règlement d'urbanisme le 8 novembre dernier. Paul Lavallée n'hésite pas à qualifier le projet de «néfaste» pour le Musée. Il rappelle que la verrière qui couronne le nouveau pavillon de 40 millions a été construite justement pour la vue sur la montagne. «Le design de la verrière veut permettre au public de voir la montagne, dit-il. Tout ça va être bloqué. Ça va tout bousiller.» «C'est inacceptable», dénonce l'architecte responsable de l'annexe du musée, Claude Provencher, associé de la firme Provencher Roy " Associés. «Quand on a conçu la verrière, on ne s'attendait pas à se retrouver avec un édifice d'une telle hauteur» tout près. Le MBAM a fait faire une étude d'impact pour savoir comment la construction d'une tour de sept étages à la place de la maison Redpath allait nuire à son nouveau pavillon. Les conclusions sont éloquentes: la vue sur la montagne est presque complètement obstruée par la tour, constate-t-on sur une simulation (photos ci-dessus). Le nouveau pavillon du musée a été aménagé juste en face de l'actuel Musée des beaux-arts, dans l'ancienne église Erskine and American. Le Musée espère avec cette annexe doubler la superficie qu'il consacre à l'art canadien. Le pavillon, dont la construction sera achevée dans quatre semaines, doit être inauguré en septembre. L'arrondissement doit encore approuver le projet en troisième lecture au début du mois de février. Les deux conseillers de l'opposition - François Robillard, de Vision Montréal, et Pierre Mainville, de Projet Montréal - devraient voter contre. Tout indique que les conseillers d'Union Montréal voteront pour, y compris le maire de Montréal et de l'arrondissement, Gérald Tremblay. http://www.cyberpresse.ca/actualites/regional/montreal/201101/20/01-4361884-le-mbam-soppose-a-la-construction-dune-tour.php
