  1. En partant des principes hautement utopiques que le CP et le CN deviennent des partenaires dans le transport de personnes ET que le gouvernement du Québec finisse par admettre le potentiel et l'urgence du développement du transport collectif structurant comme le moteur économique et social, voici une vision personnelle d'une expansion globale et intégrée du réseau montréalais qui - c'est en tout ce que j'ai visé - s'insère dans des paramètres qui relèvent du techniquement et technologiquement possible, du socialement souhaitable/envisageable et du économiquement relativement viable. Au final, je ne suis certainement pas un expert, mais je crois que c'est ce que la région métropolitaine mérite. Et encore davantage. Puis j'ai eu bien du plaisir à nommer les stations aussi! Plusieurs ont des référents géographiques clairs mais plusieurs sont des noms qui, je crois, auraient tout simplement du sens dans leurs quartiers et/ou devraient avoir leur place dans le panthéon des stations de métro. J'ai essayé de mettre le plus de noms de femmes aussi, puisqu'on en manque cruellement en ce moment dans la toponymie montréalaise. J'admet l'existence des trains de banlieue, biensûr, mais ils ne sont pas inclus dans le design des cartes que j'ai produit. On pourrait imaginer qu'un train de banlieue pourrait continuer à emprunter le corridor pour se rendre à St-Jérôme malgré un partage avec mon idée de ligne REM mauve, et ainsi de suite. De la même manière, je suis tout à fait d'accord avec l'idée de tramway, que je trouve complémentaire au métro, mais les lignes potentielles de tramway ne sont pas illustrées dans cette vision. Par contre, d'importants tronçons de la ligne REM Mauve seraient en mode tram. L'idée de la ligne bleue qui se divise en plusieurs branches permettrait à la ligne de se rendre au centre-ville sans transfert. Ça incorpore littéralement le trajet de la ligne rose aussi. Je crois que la possibilité d'avoir des branches diverses à un même tronc devrait être exploré davantage à Montréal, de même que de changer la technologie de certaines lignes (la jaune avant tout) pour permettre aux expansions de sortir de terre. J'ai tout de même mis, dans les plans globaux, l'option AVEC ligne rose et SANS ligne rose. Certains secteurs névralgiques du développement futur de Montréal méritent également une attention particulière, comme le secteur de Victoriatown, de Blue Bonnets, de Lachine-Est, de Royalmount et de la pointe de Longueuil. J'ai essayé d'intégrer et le présent, et l'avenir de la région dans cette vision. Bref, voilà, petite fantaisie du lundi soir. Enjoy! -MAP
  2. Salut, Est-ce que quelqu'un sait à qui appartient le terrain au sud de René-Lévesques au coin de Bleury? Il me semble qu'il s'agit d'une localisation de choix... Y-a-t-il des projets en vu (genre une expansion de SNC-Lavalin qui est en diagonale)? Juste par curiosité. Je passe régulièrement à côté.

  3. C'est un bon cas d'étude pour les écoles de gestion... via Bloomberg Target Will Abandon Canada After Racking Up Billions in Losses Target Corp. (TGT) will abandon its operations in Canada after less than two years, putting an end to a mismanaged expansion that racked up billions in losses. The Canadian business is seeking court approval to begin liquidation, the Minneapolis-based retailer said today in a statement. The move will lead to a $5.4 billion writedown. This is the first major strategic shift made under Chief Executive Officer Brian Cornell, who took over for Gregg Steinhafel last year. Steinhafel had seen Canada as burgeoning market for Target, the second-largest U.S. discount chain, because so many Canadians already knew the brand and would cross the border to shop at American stores. Fixing the Canada unit, which amassed more than $2 billion in operating losses since 2011, has been a top priority for Cornell. After taking the reins in August, he spent a portion of his early days at the company touring operations in Canada. The woes plaguing the company’s 130 stores there ranged from empty shelves to prices being higher than locations in the U.S. “We were unable to find a realistic scenario that would get Target Canada to profitability until at least 2021,” Cornell said today. “This was a very difficult decision, but it was the right decision for our company.” Target announced its foray into Canada in 2011 with the purchase of 220 locations from Zellers Inc., a subsidiary of Hudson’s Bay Co., for about C$1.8 billion. The deal cemented the chain’s first expansion outside the U.S., where it had about 1,750 stores at the time. Target’s shares have rebounded since taking a hit following a data breach during the 2013 holiday season. The stock had gained 21 percent to $74.33 over the past 12 months through yesterday.

And the reports include details on the companies, their needs and requirement along with the appropriate contacts.

Again, the issues include the leasing contacts, the uses they are seeking and where to contact them. There is more too. The publication keeps the subscribers aware of planned industry events and changes within the business. There are frequent reports on both retail and development sales and acquisitions, what companies are retaining which real estate-related suppliers and much, much more. Developers & Chains provides the type of leads and information that everyone in the business needs to make calculated decisions and it is all presented in a clear, factual, concise and timely manner that you can depend on. More important though, much of the leasing leads and company details are exclusive to the Developers & Chains’ E-News. They are available only in this publication.

You will read about malls, centres and large format projects that have that ideal space, perfect for your next store. And you will ‘meet’ the people and companies involved. Oh yes, and the ‘editorial’ that ends every issue. Don’t take offence. It is just a tongue-in-cheek, maybe even irreverent, look at the business that we sometimes take a little too seriously.

  8. Residents take airport grievance to auditor-general Want probe into expansion. Supreme Court nixed coalition's request to launch class-action suit against ADM The Gazette Published: 9 hours ago A coalition of Montreal residents has appealed to the auditor-general to investigate Trudeau Airport and what the coalition sees as unchecked expansion that does not consider impact on the environment or the quality of life of thousands of Montrealers. In a petition delivered yesterday to Sheila Fraser, Citizens for Quality of Life asked for an investigation into grievances that date back to 1995, when flights were transferred from Mirabel to Dorval without, the coalition says, public consultation. Night flights, the loss of green space to airport expansion, an increasing number of flight traffic and noise pollution are all cited in the petition. But like other Canadian airport authorities, Aéroports de Montréal is private and therefore outside the auditor-general's purview. Ghislain Desjardins, a spokesperson in the auditor-general's office, said that while the Dorval airport authority cannot be audited, its 60-year lease with Transport Canada can. However, Desjardins noted, any new audit would not happen immediately. Audit reports of federal departments and crown corporations that are already planned take the office into 2010. The coalition alleges Transport Canada failed to appropriately monitor the environmental clauses in its long-term lease with ADM. Copied to more than 40 elected officials, including Prime Minister Stephen Harper and Federal Transport Minister Lawrence Cannon, the petition targets the $1.5 billion in airport expansions that have taken place since 1996. Luc Marion, president of the coalition representing residents in eight Montreal municipalities, including Dorval, St. Laurent, Lachine and Lasalle, said the group was forced to go to the auditor-general after the Supreme Court of Canada refused to grant its request to launch a class-action lawsuit against ADM. "We are questioning the manner in which ADM has been able to move from Mirabel to Dorval, expand as it has without (looking at) the environmental impact now, 20 and 30 years from now," Marion said. There were 543 daily aircraft movements at Dorval airport in 1995, the year before flights were moved back there from Mirabel, Marion said. By 2007, that number had jumped to 666 a day. Marion said if ADM projections of the airport's growth are accurate, the number would reach 716 by 2010 and 864 by 2015. "We are not going to let another 200 planes fly over our heads a day," Marion said. - - - Dorval's airport is getting busier Daily aircraft movements at Dorval's airport 1966 345 1995 543 2007 666 2010* 716 2015* 864 *Projected figures Source: Citizens for quality of life
  9. Federal cash could put CFL team in Quebec City RHEAL SEGUIN Globe and Mail Update September 3, 2008 at 3:31 PM EDT The federal government will announce today a multimillion dollar infrastructure program for Quebec that could pave the way for a Canadian Football league franchise in Quebec City. The federal funding includes the expansion and renovation of Quebec City's Laval University sports centre where local investors are offering to expand the football stadium in their bid for a CFL franchise. According to prominent Quebec City lawyer Marc Bellemare, local investors have already set aside half of the $40-million needed to expand the stadium with the other half expected to come from other potential investors once the project is approved. However the head of Laval University Denis Brière has been reluctant in giving his full support to the stadium's expansion for a CFL franchise. “It would be irresponsible to say no to the expansion of the football stadium.,” Mr. Bellemare said on behalf of the anonymous investors in an interview on Tuesday. “The investors need to settle the situation involving the stadium. And then we can move and show the rest of Canada that Quebec City is truly a city capable of attracting a CFL franchise.” According to a marketing conducted on behalf of the investors the marketing firm Impact Recherche, 71 per cent of Quebec City residents support a CFL franchise. The study obtained by the Globe and Mail showed that 43-per cent of the 1001 people polled would be interested in purchasing a season ticket and that 85-per cent believed that Laval University sports centre would be an appropriate location to hold CFL games. The investors worked closely with the Montreal Alouettes in preparing their project for a CFL franchise. Alouette's president Larry Smitth said in a recent local radio interview he embraced Quebec City as a potential CFL franchise location saying it would create a healthy rivalry between the two city that would boost interest for the league throughout Quebec. According to Mr. Bellemare, CFL director general Michael Copeland also indicated to him that Quebec City would be an ideal location for the league's proposed expansion project. Quebec City has one of the most popular university football teams where the Laval University Rouge et Or has attracted as many as 19,000 people to local games in a stadium that only has slightly more than 10,000 seats. The marketing study showed that the attraction of CFL franchise in the city would not have a negative impact on the popularity of local university foot ball games. “The university hold four local games per season. Most of the CFL local games could be scheduled in July and August and would no compete with the university games,” Mr. Bellemare said. “Now it's up to the government to urge the university to change their plans for a new sports centre to allow for the stadium's expansion. Laval University's current $85-million sports centre proposal includes the construction of an indoor soccer field on empty land next to the current football stadium. The city has announced it will inject $10-million in the project with the other $75-million coming from equal contributions from Ottawa and the province. The investors have proposed that the university modify the plan in order to move the soccer stadium further east and use the empty field for the expansion of the football field. Today federal Minister of Transport, Infrastruture and Communities Lawrence cannon will confirm Ottawa's contribution to the university's sport centre proposal. Mr. Cannon as well as Quebec Finance Minister Monique Jérôme-Forget are expected to respond to investors' proposal for changes to the University's plan that could pave the way for a CFL franchise in the city.

  15. the title says it all. These airlines are getting new long-haul airplanes and looking at new possibilities to grow in North America. Rumours have pointed that each of these airlines have some kind of interest (or had) interest in Montreal. With the IAG investment. Aer Lingus is looking at North Atlantic expansion. Los Angeles, Dallas, Miami, Montreal would be the largest destinations with no service. Let's see how much these materialize vs. other cities in the US/Canada. Then we will really know how Montreal compares internationally.
