Mais je m'aperçois que jusqu'à date, je suis plutôt content qu'aucun des trois que j'ai vus - 1ère mouture du Complexe Desjardins, de style confus et brouillon ; le projet sur le site des soeurs grises, mieux, mais qui aurait détruit un ensemble architectural exceptionnel ; et ce Mammouth du Canadien Pacifique - content qu'aucun des trois, donc, n'ait été construit ou construit tel que prévu.

 

Même chose pour moi pour les 3 derniers projets ajoutés à cette section du forum. Par contre, je ne peux pas en dire autant pour les projets des années 20, soit le projet de l'hôtel Windsor et le projet du CP. Ces deux édifices auraient tout simplement été splendides.

Excate! Ils sont partis à Calgary!

 

Oui et non - le 1250 RL a été construite par Marathon qui est une division de CP.

 

The move to Calgary was transitional, the company that was in Montreal was much larger then the one that is now in Calgary. CP Ltd was in Montreal, only CP Rail is in Calgary now. CP Hotels is in Toronto and merged with Fairmont. CPR Telegraph is in Winnipeg and became MTS Allstream. CP Trucking became Interlink and went bankrupt. CP Air became Canadian - went bankrupt and became part of Air Canada. CP Ships stayed in Montreal but was taken over by Hapag-Lloyd. Back in the 90's - congolomoration was the corporate mode. ImasCo is another former Montreal example.

Exactly what i was about to answer.

 

As for Imasco, it used to combine, Imperial Tobacco, Shoppers Drug Mart/Pharmaprix and Canada Trust (and previously fast food restaurants as well)
