LOL!!!

I've seen that building before, in real life. I couldn't tell whether it was apartments, an office buildings, insane asylum, homeless shelter, bunker, etc.

What the hell is it?

It's an industrial mall / distribution centre with manufacturing style offices attached. As ugly as it is I have a fondness for the place, and it could probably be converted to loft style live/work spaces or something like that. That was done to a building of similar vintage in Etobicoke.

You can't beat buildings with a steel deck cladding!

Darko, you got 'em all ! What a collection of Montreal uglies. Fortunately, the women of Ste Catherine in summer more than make up for it.


The Ugly F. Hell Building, Concordia University

Yeah, Montreal is definitely a study in contrasts. Most cities in Canada have these abominations, but they don't stand out as much as in Montreal - because Montreal has so many other nice things to compare with.

Is QC like this as well?

"Armoury Villa", Halifax


(Photo credit: user Dmajackson)

It wouldn't be as notably GODAWFUL if it wasn't on such a prominent intersection, facing the Commons and the Armoury to the south. But we never had high expectations after the rendering was released.


(Bing maps and "Solid Homes")

Also not a fan of the massive parking garages and and interchange that kill off downtown to the north, or the casino that looks like a suburban warehouse and a mosque mated.


(Bing maps)

I don't mind many of the buildings mentioned in the thread so far, including Fenwick.

I think Flar's omnipresent McMansions win.

The Venetian is one of the worst projects I've seen in recent memory. Is it basically just stucco on a woodframe? If so maybe someone should hire an arsonist.

It's steel truss & Q deck with tilt up panels. Construction wise I don't think it's that bad.

It is however particularly ugly.
