You have to move a little more to the right to see the canyon.

A canyon with a good mix of height and style.

And it still has lots of places where it can fill in and get longer.

I really like Theatre Park (although I do wish they would've done something better for the top/roof).

That's right, the CBC parking lots notwithstanding, the boulevard is now in full re-structuring mode, with smaller older buildings slowly being phased out and replaced with modern and much taller ones. I'd reckon that there is a good 30 years left of development before we can say R-L is fully built-out.

Looking "north", boulevard Robert-Bourassa, Montreal
Taken today (I was standing on the top of "Dendrites", the new installation at the end of the park that replaces the old elevated Bonaventure Expressway.)



Sorry for the cellphone quality... #pixels

A few from Halifax, taken by me:

Hollis






Sackville


Granville




Barrington. This view doesn't have much in the way of highrises but I like how there are some relatively tall buildings with small footprints.
