Its for the next resident evil movie.

They have been filming at the Bay Adelaide Centre across the street for the past week and a half.

The building is not even 5 months old and it's already got a starring role in a Blockbuster Hollywood Movie!!!

If only. Zombies rocks although I've heard the resident evil movie franchise took a dive after the first movie which wasn't so great itself.

The movie is The Devils by the new millenium's Kevin Costner, M. Night Shyamalan.

How quickly we Victorians forget......or give up.

This project is three buildings, the tallest building (although there isn't one rendering at the website!) is supposed to be 24 stories. It's been delayed but it's by no means dead.

There's also this 28 storey residential tower which started construction out in the suburbs last year but was then put on-hold. Drive out to Costco and you can see the tower crane is still standing at the top of the mountain.

I'd like to see this go into MTLskyline's list. We'd be in the top 10! Does it count though, since it's on-hold?

I don't know if we should add it since there's no activity going on. I'll let some others say their opinions before I put it on.

Well no, we really shouldn't. It could be years before construction resumes on the thing again, if ever. In the mean time there are plenty of shorter buildings U/C in Victoria.

I thought I'd bring this thread back from the dead. Anything on the list change? How are each city's project's coming along?

Montreal
Louis-Bohème looks like it will be done pretty soon! Hopefully Altitude Montreal can take its place on the list next month!

Longueuil
Blu-Rivage is getting pretty tall. I think there are only another couple of floors to go before it is topped out.

Thanks for the bump Mtlskyline.

I was going to reopen it after my phototour tomorrow since I'll have a picture of Halifax's Trillium (working on the 2nd of 19 floors now btw).

Please message me or post any errors in the list here.

Well after posting in every city thread there is I managed to get a few updates and added Rimouski to the list. To be fair to every city I renumbered the list so any city without a specific height (floor count only) has the same number/placing as anywhere's else with the same floor count.

Unfortunately I think only one city had taller project underway.

Some new photos would be great to see
