Hi, I'm trying to find information about the patrimonial buildings of ''New City Gas of Montreal'' located inside Ottawa, Ann, Dalhousie and Wellington streets.
Will there be any construction in the future?
How high can the build?
Any plans already available?
Thank you for any info you might have!

The renaissance of Viger Square
Phil O'Brien Senior advisor
Telemedia DevelopmentI Inc. Mr. Philip O'Brien will be conducting a presentation about the Viger site on the eastern edge of Old Montreal. He will discuss the history of the site: the building of a grand hotel and railway station in what was then the central core of Montreal, its prominence as a prestigious address for business elites, and its cultural significance for the city of Montreal. The context of its decline during the 20th century will be outlined: from the changing economic conditions in the 1930s and its demise to its current state in the urban environment, resulting from the expansion of the railway yards, the digging of the open trench of the Ville-Marie expressway, and the demolition of a vast number of houses to make room for the CBC project. He will then highlight the exciting potential for redevelopment in light of changing local economic conditions and redevelopment opportunities for this area of town.

I feel a bit nostalgic, last year in December I went to visit my home country for the first time since coming to Montréal.
I was shocked the moment I entered the "International" Airport of Damascus, I knew right away I was in a different planet.
I thought that my initial shock would pass away, but no, it went from one shock to another.
When I left Syria I was 7 years old, and I remember barely anything from there, while being born in Aleppo (second largest city), I lived all my life in a small town (300k) by the name of Al Qamishly on the border with Turkey and near Iraq.
That city became slowly invaded by poor and restless Kurds.
Everyone was telling me that Damascus was beautiful, modern, etc... well I can tell you that after seeing what Damascus was all about, I was not so thrilled to see the smaller towns and villages.
Oh well, here's the tale in pictures of a spoiled Montrealer in Syria:
First signs of western influence, laughed my ass off:)
It is believed there's something like 4000 mosque in Damascus alone... thats alot of highrises
THis is the Parlimant of the Syrian Republic... I took the pic without being noticed by the secret service dudes near me in an unmarked white car:D
A pedestrian only street, you can shop all you want
My host, Roudain
One of the most if not most important shopping streets in Damascus
The almighty Ministry of Economy and Trade... aka Mafia
...err Club not Clup
Steets in eternal old Damascus:
In Montreal we call that a ruelle, but its almost ten time smaller... yes people do live here
Notice the black exterior walls, they were white but because of the pollution they became black....
Satelite dishes paradise.......
Notice the mountain in the background and the dark area at its bottom...
the dark is in reality savage construction done everywhere without any control or restraint... sad, imagine the Mont-Royal like that...
Thats inside a restaurant on top of the mountain, sadly its empty because no one goes out in "winter"
Damascus at night from the mountain
Day one is over, i will post more in the coming days...
