This is coming together nicely.

What is with Montreal projects and high quality curtain wall glazing? Seems like they're the only big city immune to the spandrel plague that has swept our country. I'm wondering if there are stricter building codes that require developers to use higher quality materials?

At least they did a pretty good job of matching the spandrel to the vision glass. Also, Humaniti is dooope.

New headquarters of the CNESST (Commission des normes, de l'équité, de la santé et de la sécurité du travail) in the rapidly changing d'Estimauville neighbourghood. The atrium of the building will look beautiful with the use of engineered wood beams.

Those Vancouver designs are overwrought but I don't see a whole lot of spandrel.


These are spandrel glass towers

The Vancouver House project consists of buildings on three different sites, all between or adjacent to the Granville Bridge and ramps.

And the new SickKids tower is starting soon enough with demolition underway (taken five days ago);

Looks as though 75 on the Esplanade is finally reaching street level. I'm really looking forward to this one as it's one of the final missing pieces in that neighbourhood. It's going to feel strange after a lifetime of having open air across from venues I've gone to since childhood, The Organ Grinder/The Olde Spaghetti Factory/Scotland Yard/ Fionn McCool's/The Bier Market, to now having a streetwall. It's going to change the entire feel of that intersection.

I hope Harhay Developments can stay true to the Aa design shown in the renders.

Are those fins going to sing in the rain and wind?

I was in Vaughan recently and the true scale of development happening up there is astonishing. Jane St for example has dozens of mid and high rises we never see.

Oh god, I hope not. I hate that song.

Here's the construction site for The Butterfly in downtown Vancouver.

The Billion dollar Jim Pattison Children's Hospital opened in Saskatoon this month, on time & on budget, with $200 million from the Saskatchewan Provincial Government plus $75 million from donors and the Hospital Foundation, as well as Saskatchewan born Billionaire & namesake Jim Pattison donating $50 million himself.
Zero $s funding came directly from Federal Government. In Quebec though, SNC Lavalin has had Federal privileges & was contractor for it's new French Language Super-Hospitals including the Shriner's new Montreal Children's Hospital.



STARS (Shock Trauma Air Rescue Service) operating emergency air lifts for Central/Northern Saskatchewan patients (STARS in Regina covers Southern Saskatchewan) will be ramping up number of flights from the current 300+ each year at the adult emergency department at Royal University Hospital in Saskatoon to now also include the paediatric emergency department at the new Children's Hospital, which is now also linked to the Health Sciences Complex on U of S campus.




The Jim Pattison Children's hospital will double Saskatchewan's number of paediatricians from 62 to 122, and 2,400 hospital staff will treat over 5,000 children in the hospital each year. The Jim Pattison Children's Hospital includes 77,000 pieces of equipment & 176 beds for each of the individual private rooms for each patient. Each hospital department has animal murals & nature artwork geared to children, including special LED lighting to mimic Northern Lights at night.

1/3 billlion dollar .... LOL

It's Quebec. The perennial have not and where the last six of eight elected prime ministers have been located. You are nitpicking over the super hospitals. Pales.

Great economy. Balanced budgets ... paying down debt, lowering taxes, upping services and, yet their equalization payment continues to rise. I think Trudeau is giving Quebec another $1.5 billion this year.

ok, in Quebec, the majority of cultural and sport projects outside of Montréal have 4 sources of funding. Local (the city), Provincial, Federal and private. That way, the regional capitals with a population of 50,000 to 200,000 people can enjoy brand new modern venues.

SNC wasn’t part of the consortium who build the CHUM, the french langage super hospital and, of course, the fed didn’t put a cent into its construction (which happened during Stephen Harper reign)

SNC was part of the consortium that build the McGill super hospital (english language). I’m not aware of any $ investment from the fed into that project's construction (which happened also during Stephen Harper reign)

SNC also build the Shriners hospital, but the Shriners paid for their own hospital as far as I know. If you have information to the contrary showing that the Fed invested into this project, please provide.

About The Shriners :

The only public money involved in the hospital is the value of the land, which was donated by the provincial government. The $127 million dedicated to construction was donated entirely by Shriners.
