Merci pour les photos MTLskyline

 

L'Architects Building se situait à l'emplacement actuel du 500 René-Levesque dans le haut de la côte de Beaver Hall

 

L'édifice a été conçu par la firme Barott & Blackader, les mêmes architectes qui ont réalisée l'édifice Aldread sur la place-d'Armes ainsi que l'édifice du Beaver Hall

1955? Where does this come from?

 

Yarabundi brought up this picture, which aptly demonstrates that the architect building was still standing well into the 60's.

Good point. Emporis might be wrong then.

I like how the white 1960 Pontiac Strato-Chief Diamond taxi with the dome that is the same one they still have on there, or at least until just recently, plus ca change... :D

La construction de la place Ville-Marie a pris fin en 1962, et la photo ci jointe a été prise de la place Ville-Marie !

 

Quand a-il été démoli exactement, avant la fin des années 60 mais quand ?

J'ai de la misère aussi à comprendre pourquoi il a été démoli si ce n'est pas pour l'élargissement de René-Lévesque.

 

Voici le site aujourd'hui :

Bizarre en effet, il y a aussi le fait que l'immeuble à sa droite, d'une dizaine d'étages a été démolit aussi et ce bien avant la construction du 500 René Lévesque. Il y-il eu un projet avorté à cet endroit ? C’est une hypothèse.

      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!

      Je ne sais pas où mettre ça. Il y a de l'activité sur ce terrain (à l'abandon depuis un méchant bout). C'est direct en biais avec le Sofia (Sofia = coin S-O. Ce terrain = coin N-E).
       
      Il y a des roulottes (deux), pis des gars qui semblent faire des calculs, des mesures et des analyses du terrain. J'ai vu ça ce matin en passant devant. Quelqu'un aurait une intuition argumentée?

      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.

      Quartier Concordia
       
      Quartier Concordia will transform the Sir George Williams campus from a collection of scattered buildings into a welcoming and cohesive urban campus in the area bordered generally by Sherbrooke, Guy, René-Lévesque, and Bishop.
      The goals of the Quartier Concordia project include improving the use of outdoor spaces, stimulating street life, and providing respite for the Concordia community and the public. The project will optimize vehicular and bicycle traffic as well as pedestrian flow, facilitate movement between campus buildings, and ensure the safe interaction of vehicles and pedestrians. Quartier Concordia will also maintain a welcoming environment for the Concordia community and the public, highlight landmarks, improve the use of space, promote the display of artwork and create a distinct campus environment within the downtown core.
      The project will be carried out over several years by Groupe Cardinal Hardy and in conjunction with the City of Montreal.
