  1. Australia's 3rd largest city, Brisbane (2 mil. metro) Images courtesy of Wikipedia
  2. Brisbane in Australia is currently having a boom in proposals and approvals for skyscrapers now it seems height limits in the city may be lifted by the powers that be. One of the most recent green-lights will see a two tower project that will house the most expensive apartments in the city. Named the French Quarter Towers the project comes from local developer Devine Limited, it consists of two towers which will be built in two stages, one standing at 54 storeys and the second at 40 storeys. With apartments ranging in price from $2.5 million to a whopping $15 million you might be expecting some spectacular, gimmicky, Dubai inspired skyscraper instead, what Brisbane will be getting is two towers which are rather reserved and elegant. Squared at the bases the towers rise up in a pretty standard boxy way until they get about a third of the way up where they begin to gently curve inwards on one side, the curve deepens before coming back out again creating a subtle sort of S shape at the tops of the towers. The shaping of the tower isn't detracted from by any epic spires or crowns the addition of which could have made the towers look decidedly trashy. The facades are glazed and balconied offering residents fantastic views and somewhere nice to enjoy a glass of wine and the odd sunset or two. Residents at the tower can look forward to unsurpassed luxury as soon as a winner is announced for a international competition to design the interiors of the towers though it can probably be assumed the towers will also be home to a six star luxury hotel that with gymnasiums, spas and restaurants you have to wear a tie in. One thing is for sure though the tower will offer the very latest in "technomenities", a fancy word invented by marketing bods that means the towers will have the latest generation smart home technology, which will include automated systems for lighting and climate, in-home entertainment and electronic concierge services. Despite the French theme, high tech auroma technology spewing out the smell of garlic will not be included, whilst the concierge is likely to be much friendlier to English speakers than a Parisian would be. Construction is hoped to start in 2009 with completion penned in for mid 2012. http://www.skyscrapernews.com/news.php?ref=1487

(INFO690)- Le maire de l'arrondissement de Ville-Marie et chef de l'Opposition officielle de la Ville de Montréal, Benoît Labonté, souhaite la tenue de l'Exposition Universelle de 2020 à Montréal.

Pierre Laporte / Info690 ............................................................................................... MAJOR COMPETION AHEAD.....GOOD LUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ------------------------------------------------------- Expo 2020 From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to: navigation, search 2020 is a Universal scale Registered Exposition time slot which can be sanctioned by the Bureau of International Expositions, Paris between 2011 and 2014. Once a city has lodged a bid with the BIE other cities will have six months to respond. The earliest allowed time to lodge a bid is 2011, and the latest is 2014. As a Registered Exposition it must be six months in length and adhere to a wide universal theme that applies to all humanity. Recent themes of Universal Expositions include "Man and His World" Montreal Expo 67, and "Discovery" Seville Expo 92. The following cities have indicated an interest in hosting Expo 2020: * o Copenhagen, Denmark (proposed bid)[1] o Houston, Texas, United States (proposed bid)[2] o Manila, Philippines (proposed bid) o New York City, New York, United States (proposed bid) o San Francisco, California, United States (proposed bid)[3] o Brisbane, Queensland, Australia (proposed bid)[4] In particular, the Brisbane bid co-incides with the 250th Anniversary of Australia 1770-2020 and with a possible Olympics Games bid for the same year[5]. :crowded: :crowded: :)
  5. Je viens de regarder La Matrice sur TQS et je me demandais quel est la ville qui sert de décor (c'est pas Montréal ). Je pense à une ville australienne comme Perth ou Brisbane. Quelqu'un a une idée?
