Get rid of the white portion at the top and add a few floors to the lower portion.

Looks like the Arts Commons Expansion is a-go. Council voted to release the city’s portion of the funds today. The feds have already committed $80 million, just waiting on the province now.





And keeping in theme with Calgary’s cultural centres, a detailed rendering of the next phase of the Contemporary Art Gallery of Calgary has finally been released. Nothing too special, but so freakin glad it’s finally happening.





Annnd a new highrise has been proposed for Calgary’s Mission neighbourhood, directly south of downtown.

Cascata – 15 storeys

It's overbearing and more monotonous than all the grey glass buildings on the East side of Cherry

Agreed. The garish overhang needs to be removed at the very least.

Ok. So here's a new Ottawa proposal. I'm not posting it for its architectural grandeur but for it's size and location.

This 30 storey tower, containing 356 one and two bedroom residential units, 20,000 square feet of retail space and 10,000 square feet of office space would be sandwiched between Blair Station and the Gloucester Centre mall. From another developer (RioCan), another 23 storey tower has been completed just west of the station and a 20 storey tower is now u/c. Several other towers are being proposed around this suburban retail area.

The proposal includes extending Blair Station's pedestrian bridge into the tower's podium and beyond into the mall.

Around this area, we also have a few existing office buildings housing thousands of employees, including CSIC and CSEC to the north, and south of the Queensway via a pedestrian bridge, we have TD and the former HQ of Telesat (moved downtown this year).

One of the city's biggest theaters (Scotiabank) is also in this area.


https://obj.ca/article/toronto-based...ir-lrt-station

Here we see the complete phased in project. The current proposed tower is across Blair Station on the lower right of all images (brown 30 -yellow 6 - beige 2 floors) and on the lower, left where we see three towers from RioCan around a turning circle; the one on the right is complete and the middle tower is u/c. The blue on the first image is the existing mall. The buildings connect today, so part will be demolished.

Now, that's TOD! And nice infill for this parcel which would've otherwise been left untouched.

Would be great having interior access to LRT station from your condo building. Too bad the station isn't fully enclosed. Could've gone from home to work at an office downtown in the middle of a snowy December without even stepping foot outside or needing a jacket

Interesting proposal by Cominar for 1800 residential units above Central Station in Montreal - my understanding is that they need a residential real estate developer to partner with them for the project - so this render is likely preliminary. Cominar owns Central Station in Montreal.:

Are they demolishing the parking garage or simply building over it?

I'm surprised to see residential proposed for Central Station. Somehow I always imagined it would be hotel or office.

Very probably demolishing it.

Thank goodness. I've been waiting forever for something to be proposed on this site.

I work just across the street from the central station parking bunker. It blows my mind that almost 60 years after it was built, it hasn't been replaced yet. I dont imagine that CN built it to last this long.

Reasons I hate that parking bunker:

1. People (both tourist and locals) think that it's the actual train station.
2. It's the main culprit in creating that huge gap in the skyline.
3. It's just not an aesthetically interesting building.

If any Canadian city could use a new station it's Montreal. The parking Lot structure isn't much worse then the actual station, it would be nice to see the whole this revamped. But financially that will probably never happen.

I don't find this early proposal much of an improvement either.

Being in the largest city in North America without a train station, I find this deeply offensive.

Montreal is in the strange position of having two grand-but-dead stations and one alive-but-shameful one.
