I was told the market was already too saturated with office space, and all these proposals would never be built.

Fast forward to now and we have CIBC Square (TWO 780ft+ towers) fully leased and under construction, the largest and tallest office development to be built in Toronto since the early 1990s. Then 160 Front is also rolling full steam ahead with its 790ft tower, again the tallest since the early 1990s. We have THE HUB and CC3 in the wings which are even taller yes...But I've learned to never say never, just when we dismiss it, one of those beasts could break ground.
cibc square towers and 160 front were chopped down, im not saying "never". the HUb and CC3 will get build but slightly shorter than proposed height.

Translated from French about ''Le Phare'' project in Québec City :

(Original article, click here) :
https://www.journaldequebec.com/2018...son-megaprojet

Dallaire goes ahead with his ''Le Phare'' megaproject.

Despite the strong opposition expressed in recent weeks during the three nights of information and consultation on Le Phare project, Michel Dallaire said that his megaproject will go ahead.

"I did not expect a lot of people to come out and defend us tonight [Wednesday]. This is not a forum for that. It is a forum that is there to listen to people who do not agree, "said the promoter of the project.

The latter assured the same breath that polls show strong support from the people of Quebec at these four towers, including a 65-storey, Sainte-Foy.

"Big shade"

Mr. Dallaire, who was eager to attend all public meetings of the City, reiterated that the idea of building such a high tower at the entrance to Quebec City came from his Group, not from the Mayor.

"Mr. Labeaume did not call me to ask me to build a 65-storey building. Mr. Labeaume has publicly asked that Groupe Dallaire, for this site, make a significant project for the Quebec City region. There is a big nuance, "he insisted.

Minimized fear

The businessman has also minimized the fears concerning the inconvenience associated with 10 years of work.

"The inconvenient part is when you dig. But we are not 10 years in excavation. After the excavation, we work inside our site, "he assured.

According to him, the work at Le Phare and those planned in the same sector for the structuring transport network (in particular for the interchange hub) will not be mutually detrimental.

"We coordinate with the City to do the work at the same time and not to open a street twice," he said.

Michel Dallaire hopes that the work of Le Phare will begin in the spring of 2019. The proponent will have to obtain the municipal permits required for each phase of construction of the megaproject.

This project makes no economic sense. Look at all that land, this is not downtown Toronto where there is no available land to build. Ok forget geographic economics, how is this tower even gonna get leased its the size of First Canadian Place???

You can ask the promoter. But I imagine he's not a dumbass if we want to spend 700 $ millions on this. What kind of promoter would like a failure for his project ?

Is this area planned as Quebec City's new downtown? If so, they'd be wise to create a proper urban street grid with blocks no more than 70-80m long and cut that highway down to no more than 3 lanes in each direction. You're not going to end up with a successful result 40, 50, 60 years down the road unless it's attractive to a pedestrian.

More like the business district as it does not fit my ''downtown'' definition. The old city and parliament hill will always remain the center of the city, where most of the attractions, activities, museum, history and good restaurants are.

Too many constraints in the old city to build new and high buildings.

It will be hard for them IMO to recreate a real ''Downtown'' feel except if they're making huge efforts here and there on the sidewalks aswell as adding more vegetation. it's not impossible, but it's quite the challenge. Ste-Foy was built like a Suburb. It's kind of like the Mississauga of Québec City. The real Downtown as Dirt_Devil stated just above, will always remain the area in & around the old core for some reasons.

I am so glad for Quebec city.
Le Phare will change Quebec city's skyline for the better.
It will not only bring new jobs to the city,but will also modernize it.
I love beautiful skyscrapers and this one is one of the prettiest in Canada.
When the concept was unveiled back in 2015,i was so excited . I always
prayed to see it become a reality. I am so relieved now.
Thanks Regis Labeaume for approving it.
I am from Ottawa,and i would like to see something that beautiful.
Here in my region,the redevelopment of the Lebreton flats could be
cancelled due to multiple lawsuits.

I am glad for Québec city.
Vive la ville de Québec !

FrAnKs/Dirt_Devil: Thanks for your replies. Given enough time it might mirror what Paris has with a historic downtown and then a modern CBD.

Oh? What's wrong with the Lebreton flats? I assumed it was on the right track until now!
Tell me more.

That's what it remind me too, though the old core of Québec City is much smaller but it's one of the largest, if not the largest in Canada and worth well protecting for the next generations.

Merci,
Je suis sur que tu parles le francais mon ami.
J 'adore le Phare.

Le projet qui consiste à redévelopper les Plaines Leberetons
est en peril à cause d'une poursuite intentée ar Eugenie Melnynk
contre un de ses partenaires. Ca pourrait compromettre le projet.

Voici un article qui parle bien de la situation.

I know Ste-Foy a bit. Its the corporate, commercial, shopping, entertainment hub for QC. Big hospital and Laval U. right there as well.

I think this can work.
