  2. Plaza St-Hubert — La fin de la marquise? Écrit par Yvon Laprade Ruefrontenac.com Mercredi, 19 mai 2010 La controversée marquise qui recouvre les deux trottoirs de la Plaza St-Hubert depuis plus d’un quart de siècle est-elle sur le point d’être démolie? «On se pose la question très sérieusement», confirme en entrevue à Rue Frontenac le directeur général de la Société de développement commercial Plaza St-Hubert, Mike Parente. En septembre 2009, une étude réalisée par une firme d’architectes et de design (Atelier Braq) n’écarte pas le scénario de la démolition et insiste sur l’importance de «faire quelque chose pour rendre la Plaza St-Hubert plus attirante et attrayante», précise le directeur général. «Il est clair que la marquise a vieilli et qu’elle cache les façades des commerces, entre la rue Jean-Talon et la rue Bellechasse (sur 1,2 kilomètre). Si on la détruit, il faudra ravaler certaines façades qui sont fades et sans attrait», explique Mike Parente. Il ajoute cependant: «Les commerçants sont divisés. Certains veulent qu’on libère la rue Saint-Hubert de cette structure de verre, tandis que d’autres souhaitent simplement qu’on la modernise.» «Mais il est clair que le statu quo est inacceptable», ajoute-t-il. Passée de mode Le directeur général déplore toutefois «une certaine forme d’inaction» des élus municipaux dans ce dossier. «La marquise appartient à la Ville de Montréal, c’est même elle qui en avait défrayé les coûts en 1984 (plus de 20 M$). Or, depuis quelques années, elle n’assume plus les frais d’entretien. Ce sont les commerçants qui doivent débourser jusqu’à 40 000$ par année. Ça crée du mécontentement», fait-il valoir. Mike Parente reconnaît que le concept des marquises sur les artères commerciales semble dépassé. «On en voit de moins en moins. Ce n’est plus un attrait», dit-il. Avant d’être recouverte et «protégée du soleil et des intempéries», la rue Saint-Hubert était une artère commerciale avec de simples auvents en toile, et des lampadaires «Washington» éclairaient les commerces et les trottoirs. Regain de popularité Toutes ces questions entourant le maintien ou la démolition de la marquise n’empêchent pas les 400 marchands de voir l’avenir avec optimisme en ce 50e anniversaire de cette rue commerciale très fréquentée. «On a connu nos moments difficiles au cours des années 1990, avec la prolifération des centres commerciaux et la venue des power centers, mais depuis dix ans, on observe un nouveau dynamisme. Nous demeurons la rue consacrée à la mariée, mais de nouvelles boutiques branchées diversifient l’offre aux consommateurs», observe Mike Parent. Il rappelle que la rue Saint-Hubert fait travailler des commerçants indépendants, des petits entrepreneurs, dans bien des cas, qui ont à cœur le développement urbain. «Nous allons toujours être là. Nous investissons dans l’économie locale, en créant des emplois et en payant des taxes à la Ville de Montréal», insiste le directeur général. La Plaza St-Hubert a une histoire. Le plus vieux commerce, Labelle Fourrures, aura 100 ans en 2010. La Quincaillerie Lambert et L.L. Lozeau ont traversé le temps avec élégance. Festivités Pour souligner ses 50 ans, les commerçants de la Plaza St-Hubert vont mettre en valeur l’aspect historique de cette artère de la Petite-Patrie. Du 7 au 11 juillet, 300 000 visiteurs sont attendus avec fermeture de la rue, la présence d’amuseurs publics, des spectacles sur deux scènes et des jeux pour enfants. Le volet culturel s’articule autour des spectacles de Orange Orange, Antoine Gratton et Les Respectables le vendredi 9 juillet et Maytiss, Caïman Fu ainsi que Wesli le samedi 10 juillet. Ces spectacles seront présentés sur une grande scène aménagée à l’angle des rues Bélanger et Saint-Hubert. http://ruefrontenac.com/affaires/commercedetail/22883-marquise

  4. Je ne crois pas que ça soit une bonne idée de faire un édifice de cette taille et aussi massif que cela tout près de l'empire state building. Cela gacherait la silhouette du skyline de New York. Cela me rappel Philadelphie ou il y avait 2 ou 3 beaux édifices avec des formes similaires, les one liberty place et two liberty place, qui composaient le skyline de laville et maintenant, depuis quelques années, un ''mastodonte'' plus haut et plus massif que les autres est venu gaché le tout. Comme quoi ce n"est pas que la hauteur qui compte.
  5. New York City streets go green New York City transportation head, Janette Sadik-Kahn is taking it to the streets, literally. The visionary transportation planner, who has been on the job for two years and was tapped by the Obama Administration for a top post, is serious about sustainability. And, while her first attempt to reduce the city’s carbon footprint by proposing congestion pricing for those who came in to the city by car went over like a lead balloon, her current efforts to green the city’s streets by reinventing car lanes as public space has carried favor with just about everyone. Her latest project, dubbed “Green Lights for Broadway”, aims to transform the city’s iconic car-clogged thoroughfare into a pedestrian oasis. As the only street in Midtown that is off the grid, Broadway poses significant traffic problems and safety issues along its length. “Green Lights for Broadway” aims to reduce traffic congestion through Midtown with targeted improvements focused at Times Square and Herald Square that will speed cross town traffic and replace car lanes with public space where pedestrians can lunch or relax in the middle of the street. Broadway is just one of many areas of the city that is being “pedestrianised” by Sadik-Kahn. Another intiative to green the city steets is the Plaza Program which began last year aiming to put all New Yorkers within a 10-minute walk of a park. Under this program, streets throughout the city are being reinvented as public plazas, as, for example, at Madison Square Park where 45,000 sq ft of public space was recently added in the middle of Madison Avenue and in nearby Chelsea where a car lane was transformed into a plaza with planters and a bike lane. While these efforts will no doubt make the city more liveable, the Mayor and the Transportation Commissioner would like to see a Manhattan with fewer cars. As such, the city is tweaking its public transportation system to expand and speed service. While the focus is mainly on adding designated bus lanes and improving ferry service, there may also be a tramway in New York’s future. In the 1990s, while with the Dinkins Administration, Sadik-Kahn tried to build a light rail system on 42nd Street. And though that project died on the vine, the idea of a building a light rail line on 42nd Street is still very much alive. The Institute for Rational Mobility (RUM), an advocacy group, is currently floating a proposal, dubbed “Vision 42” that re-imagines 42nd Street as a landscaped pedestrian mall with a 2.5-mile long light rail line that runs river to river. In a recently released report, RUM indicates the roughly $500 million project would generate $704 million in annual benefit. While that project’s future is yet to be determined, Sadik-Kahn has said she is not opposed to using the dedicated bus lanes initiative as a “back door “ step toward light rail, noting that cities all over the world, like Bogotá Columbia, are working toward a light rail service by reclaiming auto space in this way. Regardless, the city’s green transportation czar is on the case manipulating over 6,000 miles of roadway and 12,000 miles of sidewalks for the betterment of the public. While incomplete, her efforts have led to large increases in cycling as a primary mode of transit, increased ridership on subways and busses, and reduced mortalities amongst bicyclists and pedestrians.

  6. Rafael Viñoly Architects inspired by cello in flexible performance space design For the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts, Rafael Viñoly Architects PC was tasked with providing a state-of-the-art home for the Philadelphia Orchestra, a flexible theater for multiple types of performances, and a major new public space for the city of Philadelphia. Sited along the Avenue of the Arts cultural corridor on Broad Street, the premises would further the revitalization of this primary north-south axis in the downtown area, as well. The resulting Kimmel Center treats the main program components as freestanding buildings on a vast indoor public plaza, Commonwealth Plaza, enclosed by a brick, steel, and concrete perimeter building and topped by an immense steel-and-glass barrel vault roof that floods the interior with natural light. The main symphony hall, the 2,500-seat Verizon Hall, applies the acoustic principles of a cello on a vast scale, creating a mahogany-wrapped music space shaped like the body of the instrument. A series of operable doors augment the naturally resonant shape by allowing sound to flow into reverberation chambers that occupy the 16 ft wide interstitial spaces between the Verizon Hall enclosure and its interior. A configurable acoustic canopy above the stage directs sound energy out to the audience while allowing the musicians to hear themselves clearly. The Perelman Theater, an intimate, flexible recital hall, can accommodate an audience of 650 for cultural performances and other events. Its turntable stage enables transformation from a conventional proscenium to a smaller stage with a concert shell and wraparound seating. A winter garden tops the theater and features striking views of the Kimmel Center interior and the city skyline. Commonwealth Plaza, a sheltered extension of the sidewalk, encourages the fabric of the city to flow into the complex where cafés, free performances, spectacular architecture, and the people who visit combine to create a dynamic civic experience. “I used to play the cello, and there is a very direct connection between playing the instrument and creating a space like Verizon Hall," says Rafael Viñoly. "When making music, the intellectual and emotional aspects of playing must be connected to the kinetic, muscular efforts involved. They’re the same thing. And the best architecture comes from knowing they’re the same.” http://www.worldarchitecturenews.com/index.php?fuseaction=wanappln.projectview&upload_id=10105
  7. Seconde vocation pour l'ancien Hôtel Grand Plaza à Montréal 14 mars 2013 Par Michel De Smet En juillet prochain, une nouvelle Résidence Soleil ouvrira ses portes aux aînés au coin des rues Berri et Sherbooke. Il s'agit d'un projet immobilier très singulier puisque, pour la première fois à Montréal, un hôtel de grande envergure va être converti en logements pour personnes âgées. « Nous sommes en train de transformer l'ancien hôtel Grand Plaza en appartements de 1 ½ à 4 ½ pièces. Il sera rebaptisé Manoir Plaza. Au total, il devrait compter 420 logements environ. Nous disposons pour cela d'une surface aménageable de 330 000 pieds carrés répartie sur 25 étages », souligne Eddy Savoie, fondateur et président du conseil d'administration du Groupe Savoie, propriétaire des Résidences Soleil. Pas moins de 30 000 pieds carrés seront réservés à des espaces communs. On y trouvera notamment un minigolf intérieur, deux allées de quilles, un vaste atrium, un spa, une salle de cinéma et une vaste salle à manger au dernier étage avec vue panoramique sur Montréal. À noter que l'édifice aura un accès direct à la station de métro, une première en Amérique du Nord pour une résidence de personnes âgées. Le Groupe Savoie, une entreprise familiale qui agit également à titre d'entrepreneur général, prévoit investir entre 45 et 50 millions $ dans le projet. Ce montant inclut 27 millions $ versés à la société néerlandaise Kincardine B.V. pour l'acquisition de l'hôtel qui fut fermé en octobre 2010. La conversion : nouveau défi pour Groupe Savoie « C'est un défi particulier de ne pas construire à neuf comme nous le faisons d'habitude pour nos résidences. Mais je dirais que dans le cas du Grand Plaza, ce fut plutôt un avantage. Par exemple, globalement, nous allons conserver les pièces dans leur état actuel sans devoir procéder à d'importants travaux de décloisonnement », indique Eddy Junior Savoie, président exécutif, construction, Groupe Savoie. De surcroît, la grande salle de bal de l'ancien hôtel va servir à l'aménagement d'un atrium grâce à un volume intéressant créé par une hauteur libre de 18 pieds. De plus, le bâtiment, construit en 1974, se présentait en très bon état lors de l'acquisition. Par conséquent, le Groupe Savoie n'a pas eu à embaucher une firme d'ingénierie de structure. Il a cependant fait appel à l'architecte Christian Langlois pour parfaire le concept architectural. Actuellement, environ le tiers des travaux de restructuration du bâtiment entrepris à la fin de l'automne 2012 est terminé. « Nous avons embauché la firme GRV Experts-Conseils pour mener à bien les travaux de génie mécanique et électrique. La mise aux normes de nos six ascenseurs et des systèmes de sécurité va débuter sous peu. Progressivement, nous procédons aux travaux de décloisonnement nécessaire à l'aménagement de nos appartements les plus grands. De plus, durant les trois mois à venir, nous allons refaire le dallage du stationnement souterrain de l'édifice », ajoute Eddy Junior Savoie. Le Manoir Brossard À l'automne 2011, le Groupe Savoie a également entrepris la construction d'une autre Résidence Soleil à Brossard, sur le boulevard St-Laurent, à proximité immédiate du fleuve. « On prévoit accueillir nos premiers résidents en juin prochain. L'immeuble comportera 17 étages et 480 logements. Les commodités ainsi que les divisions des logements sont très semblables à celles du Manoir Plaza », fait remarquer Eddy Savoie. Environ 90 millions $ seront investis dans ce projet qui comportera une seconde phase évaluée à 75 millions $. L'échéancier des travaux pour cette dernière n'a pas encore été déterminé, mais une fois totalement achevé, le Manoir Brossard devrait compter un millier de logements. Actuellement, 85 % des travaux de la phase 1 ont été complétés. Il reste à achever certains détails de maçonnerie et de finition ainsi que la peinture intérieure. L'aménagement paysager sera réalisé l'été prochain. Avec l'ajout de ces deux nouveaux projets, le Groupe Savoie comptera désormais 14 résidences au Québec.

  8. Montréal Une nouvelle place publique à la Plaza Saint-Hubert Agence QMI 22/06/2009 13h11 Partager La Ville de Montréal a inauguré aujourd'hui une nouvelle place publique située au coeur de la Plaza Saint-Hubert, la place Hector-Prud'homme. Cet espace public sis à l'angle des rues Saint-Hubert et Bellechasse a été inauguré officiellement par le maire de Montréal, Gérald Tremblay, le maire de Rosemont-La-Petite-Patrie, André Lavallée et le député de Laurier-Dorion, Gerry Sklavounos. Un ancien stationnement a ainsi été transformé en place publique Hector-Prud'homme. Un espace que son fils, le sénateur Marcel Prud'homme, veut voir devenir «un endroit de tranquillité». Hommage à Hector Prud'homme Médecin de famille ayant oeuvré principalement dans les quartiers de La Petite-Patrie et de Rosemont, Hector Prud'homme a aussi été conseiller municipal du district de Saint-Édouard de 1944 à 1947 et de 1950 à 1954. Le maire Tremblay souhaite que la place Hector Prud'homme devienne un lieu de recueillement pour les Montréalais. «Si on ne se souvient pas de son passé, on n'a pas de présent ni d'avenir», mentionne-t-il. L’aménagement de la place Hector Prud’homme s’est fait au coût de 443 307$ et a bénéficié du «programme de renouveau urbain», un partenariat entre la Ville et le gouvernement du Québec.
  9. Foster+Partners announce design for bustling new district in French capital Hermitage Plaza will create a new community to the east of La Défense, in Courbevoie, that extends down to the river Seine with cafés, shops and a sunny public plaza at its heart. Revealed by Foster + Partners at MIPIM in Cannes, the project incorporates two 323-metre-high buildings – the tallest mixed-use towers in Western Europe – which will establish a distinctive symbol for this new urban destination on the Paris skyline. The result of a close collaboration with EPAD, the City of Courbevoie, Atelier de Paysage Urbain and Département de Hauts-de-Seine, the project is intended to inject life into the area east of La Défense by creating a sustainable, high-density community. Due to start on site in 2010 and complete by the end of 2014, the two towers accommodate a hotel, spa, panoramic apartments, offices and serviced apartments, as well as shops at the base. Forming two interlocking triangles on plan, the buildings face one another at ground level. Open and permeable to encourage people to walk through the site, the towers enclose a public piazza which establishes the social focus. As they rise, the towers transform, turning outward to address views across Paris. The glazed façade panels catch the light, the sun animating different facets of the buildings as it changes direction throughout the day. The angle of the panels promotes self-shading and vents can be opened to draw fresh air inside, contributing to an environmental strategy that targets a BREEAM ‘excellent’ rating. The diagrid structure is not only highly efficient - doing more with less - but it emphasises the elegant proportions of the towers. A crystal-shaped podium building contains office space, with two detached satellite buildings housing a gallery and auditorium that further extend the public realm. The piazza – created by burying the existing busy road beneath a landscaped deck – slopes gently downward to the water’s edge, which is lined with new cafés and restaurants. Locking into the existing Courbevoie and EPAD masterplans, the project will reinforce the regeneration of the riverfront. Norman Foster said: “Hermitage Plaza will create a 24-hour community that will regenerate the riverfront and inject new life into a predominantly commercial part of the city. A light catching addition to the Paris skyline, the development will also provide a public piazza that leads down to the river’s edge to create a new destination for the city.” http://www.worldarchitecturenews.com/index.php?fuseaction=wanappln.projectview&upload_id=11286
  10. A new headquarters facility for the Los Angeles Police Department is set to open this summer. Designed by AECOM (formerly DMJM) in joint venture with Roth + Sheppard Architects, the new 11-storey, 500,000 square foot building occupies an important civic block in downtown LA across the street from City Hall and near the Los Angeles Times and new Caltrans buildings. The project provides for a main police administration building and public plaza with below grade parking for 300 cars and an off-site vehicle maintenance garage and fueling station with parking for 800 vehicles. The design challenge was to meet the functional needs and rigorous security requirements of one of the busiest police stations in the nation while also providing greater transparency and openness to the community. In a nod to the civic nature of the site, AECOM pulled the public functions out of the building, as, for example, a 200–seat café and 450-seat auditorium, and located them in the plaza for greater public access. The park and low-rise auditorium to the North (facing City Hall) offer a street scaled entry to the building and green space for passersby, visitors and building occupants. Built of precast, glass and stone, the building is linked to the existing civic center buildings with its vertical grain, massing and lightness of color. The new headquarters is designed to achieve LEED Silver certification and utilizes energy efficient mechanical systems, day-lighting, drought-tolerant planting, a “cool roof” system, high-performance glass, water clarifiers and recycled or renewable building materials. http://www.worldarchitecturenews.com/index.php?fuseaction=wanappln.projectview&upload_id=11267
  11. Macklowe’s Worldwide Plaza Successor Wrestles Towering Dilemma By David M. Levitt Oct. 23 (Bloomberg) -- Real estate investor Peter Duncan, who negotiated the nation’s biggest property deal of the year in buying Manhattan’s Worldwide Plaza, is now in charge of a skyscraper that’s 40 percent empty. The Italian marble south lobby of Worldwide Plaza, the gateway to 14 vacant floors, is quiet. It’s one reason Duncan, president of George Comfort & Sons Inc., was able to buy the 49- story building in July for $590 million, two years after it sold for almost three times as much. The purchase price may allow Duncan to undercut the rents competitors charge as he leases his 709,000 square feet. Manhattan has 59 million feet of available offices, according to brokerage Colliers ABR, the most since June 1996, and rents for the best space are down more than 30 percent from their peak last year. Duncan’s outcome may help investors determine whether it’s time to resume buying New York office buildings. “They are one of the first waves of risk-takers here in this asset recovery business,” said Robert Freedman, executive chairman of New York-based brokerage FirstService Williams. “They made a great deal if they can manage this risk.” Pinched by scarce credit and the recession, New York City may hit a record low dollar value for commercial property sales this year. Manhattan office properties have lost almost 47 percent of their value since 2007, more than any other major U.S. city, according to the Concord Group, a consulting firm in Newport Beach, California. Investor Signal If Comfort and its partners lease the space at 825 Eighth Ave. quickly, it will be a “signal for investors” that could increase their appetite for risk, said Jim Frederick, a principal at Colliers ABR, a New York-based commercial broker. Not a single lease for more than 250,000 square feet in Midtown has been signed this year, according to CB Richard Ellis Group Inc., the world’s biggest commercial brokerage. Tenants have plenty to choose from. Just eight blocks south at Eighth Avenue and 42nd Street is 11 Times Square, a new 1.06 million square-foot office tower that’s almost finished and has no tenants. Just up the street is 3 Columbus Circle, the former Newsweek Building, where 417,000 square feet is available, according to Colliers. Six blocks southeast lies the former New York Times building, where all 644,000 square feet is up for lease. Comfort’s advantage may be price. The partnership paid $370 a square foot for Worldwide Plaza, while competitors paid $1,000 a foot or more for similar buildings at the height of the five- year U.S. property boom. Rents Fall “No longer will they have to get $80 or $90 or $100 a square foot” for a lease, Robert Sammons, research director at Colliers, said in an Aug. 20 interview on Bloomberg Television. “They can do deals in the 30s, 40s or 50s now, which is going to help start to move the market.” Rents for so-called Class A Midtown offices averaged $68.38 a square foot at the end of September, according to Colliers data. The law firm Cravath Swaine & Moore LLP agreed to pay almost to $100 a foot when it renewed its 600,000-square-foot lease at Worldwide Plaza in 2007, a person involved in the transaction said at the time. “I look at the vacancy as being an opportunity,” said Duncan, whose company owns or has interests in eight other New York office properties. “The success of any deal is dependent on how well occupied you keep your buildings.” Comfort, a closely held family-owned company, and its partners set aside “in excess of $100 million” to cover leasing costs, including maintenance and a reserve to renovate for new occupants, Duncan said in an interview. He declined to disclose the building’s expected first-year yield, or capitalization rate. Higher Vacancies The vacancy rate for the highest-quality offices in Manhattan was 12 percent in September, near the highest in more than 12 years, Colliers said. Tenants haven’t been in a better position since the mid-1990s, when the market was coming out of a recession, Sammons said. Duncan’s challenge is the latest for a skyscraper that helped gentrify part of the west side in the 1980s. Built on the old 50th Street site of Madison Square Garden, it was the first sizable skyscraper built that far west in Manhattan. A PBS program, “Skyscraper: the Making of a Building,” documented the construction. William Zeckendorf Jr. developed the property. It was the first New York commission for Skidmore Owings & Merrill architect David Childs, who went on to design the nearby Time Warner Center. Macklowe’s Purchase Developer Harry Macklowe purchased Worldwide Plaza and six other Manhattan buildings from Blackstone Group LP in February of 2007, the same day Blackstone bought billionaire Sam Zell’s Equity Office Properties Trust in what was then the biggest leveraged buyout in history. A year later, Macklowe lost all seven properties to lender Deutsche Bank AG when he was unable to refinance almost $7 billion in short-term debt he used to acquire the buildings. Deutsche Bank financed a $470 million loan for Comfort’s group to make the purchase. The partners include RCG Longview, an investment firm whose founders include former Shearson Lehman Brothers Inc. Chief Executive Officer Peter Cohen; and DRA Advisors LLC, a New York-based sponsor of real estate investment funds. “We wanted to put together a group that has been through the wars a little bit,” Duncan said. The partners “are all long-term holders of real estate.” The floors they need to rent make up the second-biggest empty space in the city: 14 stories at the base of the tower vacated in June by the advertising firm Ogilvy & Mather. Empty Space While some floors have been stripped to the fireproofing, traces of the ad agency remain. The walls on the fourth floor are covered with artwork, including a red and black 1960s-style pop-art mural that reads: “Next time there’s a war for sale, it’s alright to say no thank you.” Representatives of accounting firm Deloitte LLP have spoken with Comfort about taking some of the space, according to two people familiar with the discussion. They declined to be identified because they weren’t authorized to speak publicly about the space. Jonathan Gandal, a spokesman for Deloitte, declined to comment. “We’ve had lot of people look at the available space,” Duncan said. “We are actually discussing having active negotiations with certain tenants. And that and $2.25 gets you a ride on the subway.” To contact the reporter on this story: David M.
