Couple of old projects that never saw the light of day as they were planned ...Cite Concordia was drastically downsized and redesigned...

 

Dashed projects - 1968

Two downtown projects that never happened. The Eaton-Mace project was a $125,000,0000 building slated for the area bounded by St. Catherine and Sherbrooke between University & Mansfield. It was guided by Brigadier-General Gordon Dorward de Salaberry Wotherspoon. The Montreal Trust mortgage group took it over after Mace ran out of cash.

The Place de la Concorde was a $250,000,000 project to be plopped between Milton and Pine, Ste. Famile and Hutchison, roughly the area of what they tried to do a couple of years later with the La Cite project which would have levelled much of the McGill ghetto had it not it not been largely blocked by protests.

I love the Tour Bonaventura, and its sheer, unforgiving height. It would have had 80 floors, compared to FCPs 72, if I'm not mistaken. FCP is 296m (355 with antenna), so i'm guessing this would have been in the 300-320m range, to be the tallest in Canada. Le 1000 is a nice consolation prize, at least.

Would it have been taller than First Canadian Place in Toronto??

 

Yes it would have! I counted approx. 82 to 84 floors on this building, which would have put it in the 310 to 330 meter range, easily surpassing FCP. What I don't understand is, if the Height limit was already in place (back in the late 60's, why would a promotor even bother with this project? It would have been WAY too high for Montreal!

JE n'avais jamais vu ce rendu? Dommage pour HQ, ceci aurait pu moderniser leur immeuble actuel qui est selon moi le 2ième plus laid à Montréal!

 

Est ce que je me trompe en pensant que le 750 Pell sont les tours jumelles qui étaient supposés monter en même temps que le Centre Bell??? J'aurais bien aimé voir ce projet!
