Here is my take on the massing and placement of the new courthouse... we'll see how accurate I was soon enough.

18 Floors proposal in the Limoilou District to replace this crumbling Church here :
https://www.google.ca/maps/@46.82757...7i13312!8i6656

The article (In French) :
http://ici.radio-canada.ca/amp/10771...mpression=true

EXCLUSIVE - An 18-story high-rise building could be erected in the heart of Old Limoilou, according to information obtained by Radio-Canada.

A text by Maxime Corneau

The construction would replace the current Saint-François-d'Assise church, located on 1st Avenue. The church was sold to a real estate developer who now wants to demolish it and quickly start his construction project.

"People are tired that the church is withering," said Benoît Raymond, vice president of Acero Real Estate Group, owner since April of the building and land.

The tower in question, still on the drawing board, would have a total height of 18 storeys.

The proponent relativizes the height by reminding that the current bell tower of the church throne to a height of 19 floors.

Rental project

Mr. Raymond does not want to give more details about his project that will be presented to the citizens of Limoilou at the next meeting of the neighborhood council of Vieux-Limoilou next week.

However, it confirms that this is a rental apartment project that should include enough parking to not disturb the balance of the sector, already very much sought by the presence of the hospital Saint-François-d'Assise .

The zone zoning provides for a maximum of five floors. The proponent must therefore obtain a waiver from the Ville de Québec.

The promoter Benoît Raymond does not worry, however, about this aspect. He emphasizes that this type of construction at height is "a will of the City", which wishes to densify the city center.

Presentation to come

The promoter will officially present his project on January 17th at the meeting of the neighborhood council of Vieux-Limoilou at 7 pm at the Jean-Guy Drolet Community Center.

The chairman of the board, Raymond Poirier, does not wish to comment on the file out of respect for the promoter.

On the other hand, he welcomes the consultation initiative of the Acéro Real Estate Group, which wishes to integrate the comments of the neighborhood residents into its final project.

"It's an opportunity for people to take a look at a project, to take the time to understand, to grasp the ins and outs of the project and then to be able to give an opinion, an opinion, raise concerns, who can be integrated by the proponent before the formal consultation that will be conducted by the City of Quebec, "he says.

It's Renzo Piano! They're a firm on many wish lists. It's special. This is huge news regardless of any renderings.

Looks like another 45-50 storey mixed use for the heart of Downtown Edmonton.

As long as it's not like his Paris courthouse. We already have enough buildings built or in the works like it. I'm a fan of most of his other works though.

Regency needs to really step up their game with the replacement for this not to end up a step backwards. We'll have to wait and see.

It wouldn't work for a courthouse but, I'd love to see him do a sister development to the one in London with the colourful tiles here in Toronto.

Nice proposal with impressive height. It's too bad that it has to come at the expense of such a nice building, but if push came to shove I'd pick the new tower too.

^ If you remove height from the equation the BMO office is the nicer of the two buildings, but adding that kind of density to an area already on the upswing would be too enticing for me to pass up.

That suave-looking guy quoted in the article should see if he can persuade developers to build that kind of stuff on surface parking lots instead

Well it's a bit late for that now, the BMO structure is already being torn apart. You're right though about the density this will bring being a positive for the area.
