Here are some of the various proposals. The 900, 1215 and Mackay (in their current forms) are dead. The buildings that are whiteish/yellowish are examples of the kind of buildings that would be allowed to go up in those locations.

Les condominiums supplantent les appartements à Montréal

Depuis 2008, le nombre de copropriétés mises en chantier à Montréal est neuf fois supérieur à celui des logements locatifs en construction, une tendance qui devrait perdurer, selon les experts.

« Les condos sont beaucoup plus profitables que les appartements lorsqu'ils sont mis en vente, ce qui explique pourquoi les promoteurs s'y intéressent de plus en plus », observe Bertrand Recher, analyste principal de marché pour la Société canadienne d'hypothèque et de logement (SCHL).


Les chiffres diffusés par l'organisme gouvernemental sont probants. En 2011, la construction de logements locatifs a été anémique dans la plupart des arrondissements.

Les arrondissements populeux sont les plus touchés. Sur le Plateau-Mont-Royal, à peine 344 appartements ont vu le jour depuis les neuf dernières années, alors que 2431 logements en copropriété y ont été construits.

Le scénario est similaire dans Côte-des-Neiges-Notre-Dame-de-Grâce, Rosemont-La-Petite-Patrie, Mercier-Hochelaga-Maisonneuve et le Sud-Ouest, où la construction des condos dépasse de trois à cinq fois celle des logements locatifs.

Et malgré cela, la tour la plus haute en construction présentement est une tour qui aura 40 étages de locatifs. Le 400 Sherbrooke O. est aussi une tour locative.




^J'aime ce que je vois, des tours de bonne hauteur, avec une bonne balance de densité de midrises. C'est juste mon opinion, mais je prefere ce genre de trame urbain que celui de Calgary ou Toronto.

Sorry to pipe in with this redevelopment next to the Jacques Quartier bridge as I know it's about a year old, but I haven't found any discussions about this so far. If there have been, I'd appreciate it if someone could link to me them. Has their been any news about it or renderings of building to go up in this district, Secteur Sainte-Marie? In the above picture it looks like there's some sites where they're planning to build fairly tall. How do you think the area will compare to the redevelopment in Griffintown? Regardless of how it turns out, anything would be an improvement as what's there now is an ugly, empty grass field and a large parking lot.

^ I didn't know that still existed? I stopped following news on that development when they axed the two 20 floor tower development, that was years ago.

Accurso vend devant le Centre Bell


Les plans se précisent pour le développement de l’îlot situé devant le Centre Bell, entre la rue des Canadiens-de-Montréal et le boulevard René-Lévesque Ouest, au centre-ville de Montréal. L’homme d’affaires Tony Accurso vient de vendre la parcelle qu’il y détenait au propriétaire de la partie nord du lot, Giorgio Tartaglino.


Le citoyen de Monaco termine ainsi l’assemblage de son terrain pour construire une éventuelle phase 3 à son projet de copropriétés Roccabella, annoncé le 3 avril.


À 10,2 millions de dollars, la transaction revient à 567 $ le pied carré. Un prix plus élevé que celui de toutes les transactions conclues dernièrement dans le quartier, reconnaît Serge Labelle, vice-président aux finances de la société de Giorgio Tartaglino, MC Finance. « Mais on pense que ça représente les taux qui vont être payés dans les prochaines années au centre-ville de Montréal, dit-il. Les terrains vont se faire de plus en plus rares ces prochaines années si tous les projets annoncés se font. »

Bonne nouvelle pour ces promoteurs, qui vont sans doute continuer a ruiner ce lot en construisant une misérable tour de 15 ou 20 étages! Pourquoi pas crisser un duplex tant qu'a faire?!

Nice photos of Montreal!
I seriously think this city could possibly become a greater one than NYC. The civilized(?) history of the continent is a mere half millennium, thus the race has merely started, NOT it is too late - already over at all.

I say all it needs is more people with smiles and money they bring in (as all these young cities in the new continent have grown up that way.)
Oh, and they really need to abolish unhealthy drug like Bill 101 asap.

Vive Montréal / Long live Montreal!

I think that is the problem of Quebecers...
Thinking too much + always about the language. They could give up everything good given to them if they could speak one language from Europe: French...

Make no mistake, I'm not a native English speaker; I speak 3 languages and the third one is my main at the moment. (and I'm happy about it.) I have a plan to learn 2 more if my health condition allows, that includes French.

Well, I only spoke about the law because I see it is against the freedom and against realizing the full prosperity in Montreal's potential. Think about it. I don't have hatred against French. And if I do that will be a mistake. I personally think kicking out English part of Montreal along with the tremendous amount of wealth out of the city was a mistake. It should be the positive will to embrace all, not negative power to oppress them to prevail.
It really doesn't matter to me as long as I can see true beauty and sheer awesomeness humans create.
Yes, even the invasion is justifiable if you white europeans make sure that happens.
Long live Freedom, Prosperity, and Love.

Classic wannabe citizen of the world argument. Meh, it changes from the redneck arguments against bill 101 that we get from the west.

It is nonetheless invalid. North America is probably the only place in the world where languages other than english are seen as a handicap. In fact french is our singlemost important asset and we must protect it with claws and beak. It unites us, defines us and makes us stronger against the global cultural flattening that plagues human civilization. French is an international languague and we do benefit from the special relationship we have with other french speaking countries. It is not the language of a unique country, like you said. Even if it was, it's not a valid argument. Some of the countries that have the most thriving economies and the most pleasant social climates in the world also have some the most exclusive languages (I'm mostly thinking about northern european countries here).

We must work towards a bilangual society that puts french in the first place. You have to be nuts if think that quebecers will give up on their culture for some illusionary economic argument Peace!
