This was an ugly fat-ass building and I'm glad it won't be built. Although I am saddened we won't see *something* there in the short run, let's make room for improvement in the actual design and hope a new great proposition will come along.

cf scraps over 20 floors of hotel floors on the ave des canadiens project and now this ... what does that say about the state of the office market though ... not good :biting:

 

but yea, this is just one of the few choice lots in the vinicity of phillips square; other than the one on union where a tower is already in the plans, i'm thinking also about the parking lots up the street just east of the bay, and of course the infamous hertz lot on de maisonneuve ... i just hope that the one right on the square receives something high... squares need to be surrounded, this would provide a good counter point to pvm and altitude growing on south western side of it.

+1, encore un truc qui aurait été tronqué d'une vingtaine d'étages. Mieux vaut ne pas les faire dans ce temps-là. Ça me convient, tout comme les truc des Diamants.

If we all pray to the Skyscraper gods, maybe CF will partner up with another Hotel chain, and keep their project at 62 floors.... but we all have to pray really really hard! ;)

Entièrement d'accord avec vous deux. Ce projet était supposé avoir 30 étages pour 900,000p², mais il était fort probable qu'il aurait fini avec 20 étages et 500,000-600,000p². Je ne sais pas si vous réalisez, mais 900,000p² c'est deux Tour CIBC. C'est beaucoup de p² pour une ville comme Montréal (la demande pour des nouveaux espaces à bureau n'est tout simplement pas là!)

 

J'espère voir un beau projet résidentiel (ou mixte).

      This fall, Broccolini is launching the much-anticipated residential development, Terra, in Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue.
       
      This multi-phase eco-friendly project will offer a total of 130 luxurious townhouses in divided co-ownership with square footages ranging from 1,371 square feet to more than 2,500 square feet. All models include a large deck, a private yard, a two-car garage and high-end finishes. Prices for the units will start at $449,900 (taxes included).

      Immediate access to the new REM light-rail network

      Scheduled to open in 2020, the new REM (light rail) station in Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue will offer train departures to downtown Montreal every 10 to 15 minutes, 20 hours a day, 7 days a week. With the REM, users will be able to get from Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue to downtown in less than 35 minutes. Terra’s strategic location also gives residents direct access to highways 40 and 20.

      32% of greenspace within the community 

      Terra is located within minutes of the Morgan Arboretum, a forest eco-territory of more than 245 hectares. The project will reflect this natural setting. Within the development itself, large expanses of untouched forestland will be preserved. These stretches of woodlands surround and wind through the development creating natural green boundaries and establishing Terra as a distinct and ecological community.
