C'est tellement beau!!!

Check it out (and while your there, go and take a walk on the Aylmer waterfront! 10 minutes from there...)!

So the tallest building in Ottawa/Gatineau is not even in Ottawa, its Terraces de la Chaudiere in Hull. Kind of funny, and sad at the same time ain't it!?

As much as I like skyscrapers I think sometimes people on this forum jump too quickly on the idea that something taller is necessarily better and we need some 40 story building to bump our city up to the next level. I agree with that sentiment in time, but you don't want some 40-story monstrosity overtaking everything else it needs to be natural.

Looking at these pictures however, a good sized building with a nice decorative spire could really add something to our skyline. Parliament has nice caps, we need something similar on a 30ish story building

Which is why Stinsons' brainchild in Hamilton didn't work out. Would have stuck out like a sore thumb. Hell, even the developer of our tallest (Landmark Place) thought so.

A big improvement to Ottawa's skyline would be the demolition of Place de Ville's Tower C (that's the hideous brown box that dominates the western edge of downtown). It's only 29 storeys, yet it's bulk and ugliness is hard to miss from many vantage points, especially looking east from the parkway.

Once levelled, replace Tower C with a truly landmark building that would complement the Peace Tower rather than competes with it.
