SSP exclusive!

Luz Condos, 114 units in the new Triangle area of Cotes-des-Neiges (Rouge, Vue, Reve, etc). There is a little "sneak peak" capture of part of the building on the website. The architecture does not look horrible, but its hard to tell.

No floor total is mentioned, but 114 units would have to be more than 10 stories tall, and could even be close to 20...

How do you find these projects? Do you work in the industry?

The cladding on the GM is great! Thanks for the updates!

As for the new scoop, I seriously doubt anything above 12 floors.

RE : Concordia GM building

Comme tout ce qui s'est construit au campus Concordia ces dernières années, cet édifice est qu'une qualité exceptionnelle. Son rendu est d'une clarté et d'une qualité remarquable.

En comparaison, le mur rideau du CRCHUM, pour ce qu'on en voit à ce jour, est décevant.

I don't work in the industry, but I do like to keep tabs on what's going on. I know a couple of people in commercial real estate, but I also read the real estate section of newspapers and follow a few websites such as http://guidehabitation.ca that frequently post new projects.

RenderPornStar of the Week

District Griffin 2 may not be "loud" architecture but compared to many projects across Canada it is still good architecture--I especially love the play between the dark and light brick and the placement of the windows--and thus it's my latest RenderPornStar*!

"Merry Griffin" is a seasonal play on Mary Griffin--Griffintown's namesake landowner.

What do you folks think about this project? (I used to live nearby and while I miss the grittiness of the area it is nice to see it more lively.)

Cet article ne traite pas d'un projet en tant que tel, mais il est fort instructif et distrayant.

Le Parc olympique est le symbole visuel de Montréal à l'étranger

LA PRESSE

Le stade a beau être fermé de décembre à mars inclusivement, il s'y passe plein de choses tout autour, indique l'organisme responsable de sa gestion qui a rendu publics deux rapports lundi. De ces études, il ressort aussi que les Européens et les Américains considèrent le Stade olympique comme étant le principal symbole visuel de Montréal.

En tenant compte des 11 partenaires comme le Biodôme et le cinéma StarCité présents sur son territoire et des 89 associations de sport et loisir logées dans son sous-sol, la Régie des installations olympiques (RIO), qui préfère utiliser l'appellation Parc olympique, évalue à 184 millions par an les dépenses des utilisateurs du quadrilatère.

En utilisant le modèle des retombées économiques de l'Institut de la statistique du Québec, la firme SECOR conclut que le Parc olympique contribue à 2568 emplois directs et indirects. Les activités créent un impact sur le produit intérieur brut du Québec de 146 millions, montant duquel on retire les subventions d'environ 19 millions que reçoit la RIO pour obtenir son impact net sur le PIB. Les gouvernements perçoivent des taxes de 31 millions par année.

«Au Québec, les gens ont l'impression de mettre continuellement de l'argent là-dedans, explique au téléphone Christian Gagnon, conseiller en communication du Parc olympique. Il semble que le Parc olympique produise des activités économiques importantes, tout en soutenant plus de 2000 emplois. C'est non négligeable comme apport. Dans les coffres de l'État, il y a toujours bien 31 millions qui y reviennent», souligne-t-il.

Par ailleurs, le Stade olympique et sa tour penchée constituent le symbole représentant le mieux Montréal comme destination internationale, soutient le réseau de veille en tourisme à l'UQAM, tirant ses conclusions d'un sondage web commandé par le Parc olympique. Plus de 5500 répondants adultes ont participé à la consultation, dont plus de 1000 dans quatre marchés: États-Unis, France, Royaume-Uni et Allemagne.

Le château Frontenac... de Montréal!

Les Allemands et les Américains expriment un intérêt plus grand à visiter le Parc olympique. Les Américains placent le stade comme première icône de la ville dans une proportion de 41%, les Allemands font de même dans une proportion de 35%. Pour les Britanniques, le stade arrive deuxième après la Biosphère, tandis que les Français identifient le Château Frontenac (!), de Québec, au premier rang des symboles visuels montréalais.

«Cette étude, une première du genre dans l'histoire du Parc olympique, constitue une étape cruciale dans sa relance. Elle démontre l'importance du symbole international que représentent le Stade olympique et la Tour pour Montréal, au même titre que l'Opera House de Sydney, en Australie, et la tour Eiffel, pour la ville de Paris», a dit Paul Arseneault, directeur du réseau de veille en tourisme.

Ces deux études s'inscrivent dans la stratégie de relance du Parc olympique, qui cherche à mettre l'actif du parc en valeur.

Makes you think, what would Montreal be like IF our train companies had bothered building a chateau hotel like those of Vancouver, Victoria, Banff, Toronto, Ottawa or Quebec!

Instead we got this:

J'ai tellement ri quand j'ai lu l'histoire des français qui identifient le château Frontenac comme une symbole montréalais!

Je pensais que le Québec était méconnu des anglophones d'Amérique, pas de nos cousins français hahahaha.

Is this show actually shot in Montreal or is the backdrop only a coincidence?

What the hell? Where did you find this? This can't be from Montreal. My guess is that they took a random backdrop, and it just happened to be one of Montreal. Strange. And fun!

Of all the skylines in the world they chose ours? Weird. Maybe they have a different backdrop every show.

I briefly flipped to the Spanish-language TeleLatino earlier (its on free preview from Videotron) and I caught an ad for this show and noticed the familiar skyline. It made me curious so I youtubed it. (especially since the channel had a lot of ads in Spanish for Montreal businesses)

I think the show is either from Chile or the US but I'm not sure which.
