Love the interiors, more so than the cladding. This is still a nice tower though, worthy of being placed downtown!

The current tallest on the island is a 30 floor condo right now, do these just might equalize or take the edge.


By the way which floor are they at now?

Evolo 1 is the building in the background and is the one under construction. The white and blue tower is currently on sale and is called Evolo 2. On this part of the island, 4 to 5 30 floors-ish towers are planned, as well as many other shorter condo buildings with shops and restaurants included at street level. Townhouses are also planned. You can see some of them behind the white tower.

c'est bien de voir la densité et la hauteur que peut prendre l'ile des soeur. j'ai toujours aimé. Toutefois je regrette beaucoup le no mans land résidentiel qu'il est devenu. le maque de mixité résidentiel et commercial est désolant. Mais bon, ça fait une bonne porte d'entrée pour Montréal vu du sud.

Pointe Nord, Nuns' Island

Indeed, these buildings are on Nuns' Island. They are part of a new neighbourhood called Pointe Nord, which is a mixed-use development, with charming commercial and waterfront parks and paths. It is more urban than anything Nuns' Island has seen before.

Are you working for the promoter ? Anyway, there is nothing remotely urban about this project. It's nice enough, yes, but it's not urban.

Hi Martin. Yes, I am working with the developer. The project is not urban in that it will never be a downtown core, but we are in the process of signing-up quality commercial tenants including bakeries, restaurants and much more and the mainstreet will feel like a small urban heart of the neighbourhood. Let are a lot of elements that went into the planning process that help make this urban retail. It will take some time but by next summer the urban element will start taking shape.

Fair enough. Let's wait and see. Like I said, it's a nice project. I love the architecture of the Zuni. I wish the towers would be more adventurous like that though.

The Evolo towers will reshape the downtown skyline of Montreal, so we had a real responsibility to create something that would stand the test of time. The architects worked very hard to be adventurous and design-oriented while keeping the design elegant and simple. Not an easy challenge.

I realize that the sterile glass box is everywhere these days, but had hoped Montreal would be spared. I guess the days of grand Montreal buildings is over.
