Well Quebec City may get Le Phare and now this for Ottawa. I guess that 65 stories is just too much for Montreal...lol!

Planning committee decides Ottawa is a 65-storey city

Ottawa is a 65-storey city, no matter what a community plan says.

That’s the view of the majority of planning committee members who voted Tuesday to recommend allowing a giant three-tower complex at 900 Albert St., near the Bayview O-Train station.

Councillors Jan Harder, Tim Tierney, Stephen Blais, Rick Chiarelli, Jean Cloutier, Allan Hubley and Shad Qadri voted in favour of planning amendments that would allow the development, while Jeff Leiper and Tobi Nussbaum opposed. Council will cast the final vote Wednesday.

TIP Albert GP (Trinity Developments, InterRent Real Estate Investment Trust and PBC Real Estate Advisors) proposes to build towers of 65, 56 and 27 storeys, soaring above commercial and office spaces. There would be 1,241 residential units, which the city expects would generate a massive transit ridership for the Confederation Line and Trillium Line.

The 65-storey and 56-storey towers would be the tallest buildings in Ottawa.

B+H Architects and GGLO Design are the architects on the project.

The city’s Bayview station secondary plan allows a maximum of 30 storeys on the property, but the official plan calls for buildings taller than 30 storeys to be within 200 metres of transit stations in mixed-use centres. A prime candidate for the official plan direction would be 900 Albert St.

Du coup, est-ce que le Phare a Quebec sera quand meme la plus haute tour à l'est de Toronto?

Le phare sera encore plus grand que le projet d'Ottawa. Le phare devrait mesurer 250 mètres contre une hauteur de 233 mètres  pour le gratte ciel d'Ottawa.

Je pense que de toute façons, l'important pour certains à Québec n'est pas de battre Ottawa en hauteur, mais juste Montréal...

De toute façon, le Claridge Icon est presque complété et il est spectaculaire. Voici mes quelques belles images de cette tour iconique qui mesure 143 mètres. Merci tout le monde!

C’est fou comment une tour 143 metres peut avoir l’air vraiment haute dans un environnement plat
