None of the towers in Montreal stand out and the setting isn't that spectacular. I'm not saying it's an ugly city, it just doesn't have one of the top skylines in North America.

IM Pei's Place Ville-Marie is a classic if there ever was one, but we're all entitled to our opinions. I consider Montreal one of the best looking cities in north America; especially at street level.

Yes, it does! And yes, that is Miami Beach just directly east of downtown Miami. It's practically just a stone's throw away. The dense southern tip that sort of looks like a shark's head is South Beach. The green area north of there is expensive Beverly Hills-type homes with a narrow strip of hotels and condos along the beach. The cluster upper left and north of that is Aventura and Sunny Isles Beach, already the second largest skyline in Florida and growing as we speak.

Anyway, I copied this pic below to this page to illustrate how close the mountains around Los Angeles look when it's clear enough. From my experience of living there, they really do look that close on a very clear day.

We anticipate a lot of new projects starting next year. It could be our biggest growth spurt of this particular boom. Then, the supertalls should follow a couple of years thereafter.
