I'm not sure I'm crazy about the layout for this plan. Right now when you see the area south of THF, it already looks like a flattened-out wasteland, and this is going to spread that feeling south of Cannon Street. I wish there were some buildings along that route... THF is located in a dense urban environment, but you'd never know it to watch games there on TV. It looks like it might as well be a suburban office park.

I'm having a hard time criticizing this project despite its lackluster visual appeal. I mean, 170m...times two. That's huge for Montreal. That's like two 250m towers for Toronto.

But yeah, hopefully the new design will improve.







Notice the 750 Peel shadow render, looks huge as well.

Nice to see the two towers going from 120m. to 170m. but the new design is atrocious. It would be more suitable for a suburb. Let's hope they improve it.

Can't get any worse than a tall, bad design. Canderel in Toronto is proof of that. Appears they now want to do the same in Montreal.

I just wish the Windsor station office tower had been 170m and these had stayed 120m. The thing I enjoy about Montreal skyline the most is that it's dominated by a smaller number of high-quality landmark buildings rather than being a jumble of more generic elements. With the exception of Calgary, it seems like every city across the country is having its highest quality landmark office buildings eclipsed in size and prominence by lower quality residential.

^ I don't really like the narrowing at the bottom, but the roundness is interesting at least.

Commercial architecture at its finest. SOM or KPF?

Top 50 just became a lot harder to get on.

I absolutely ADORE them. Absolute perfection. This is what Montreal needs.

The buildings are designed by Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill.

180m + 130m office towers? With two 170m residential towers next door? In a few years the skyline will be back in the big leagues.

if you count all ongoing constructions in Montreal, from residential projects + office buildings, commercial projects, to infrastructures, this is the biggest construction boom of the last 50 years.

That would be nice because I think their skyline for size of population very underwhelming and bland.

Hamilton (like Ottawa) has a very decentralised skyline. Winnipeg isn't as centralised as other prairie cities, but it still beats out Hamilton by a lot. If all of Hamilton's highrises were as clumped as Winnipeg's it would probably look similar in scale (though a lot more residential and a little bit shorter on average).
