Here are a few new projects.... things are moving in Montréal finally!

Tour Broccolini - Around 54 floors, 100 to 150 guest rooms. The projection for the opening is 2015.










Across the street, on the Bell center site, there's also the Tour de l'avenue des Canadiens. The initial project was 62 floors, but it has been scaled down to 47. We don't know why, perhaps its because of the soil test, to the limited space on the site. But the developer, Cardilac fairview, owns many other sites around, and has plan for many more towers. The sales office should open at the end of the summer, or beginning of the fall.
Here is a new render, the Architect is Cardinal hardy, one of the city's best.




And here is the 400 Dowd. A small project, which includes de renovation of oder brick industrial building (quite typical of Montréal)










There is also a rumor of a 214 meters tall tower in Griffintown, which would be Montreal's tallest. RBC would partly finance it, but that's we know for now.

We will have a new construction, an office tower, in the Montreal's Sky!

Quote:

MONTREAL - Cadillac Fairview Corp. Ltd. said Friday it will move forward with construction of Montreal's first privately built downtown office tower in 20 years, after securing Deloitte LLP as the key tenant.

Deloitte will occupy 160,000 square feet of the 514,000-square-foot tower, to be built on land acquired by Cadillac Fairview in 2007 between Montreal's Bell Centre and Windsor Station.

When completed in June 2015, it will be Montreal's first downtown tower built to the highest Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design certification, or LEED platinum, Cadillac Fairview said.

The conversion of the nearly half-hectare site, occupied by a vacant, seven-storey office building, is part of a broader project announced last year by Cadillac Fairview to create a mixed residential, office and entertainment hub around the Bell Centre, largely inspired by Toronto's Maple Leaf Square. On Monday, Cadillac Fairview is expected to announce a residential tower with hundreds of condo units and a sports bar to be built near the Bell Centre.

The two towers are replacing Cadillac Fairview's initial plans for four buildings – three residential and one office – and would be part of a long-term, $1-billion investment on 400,000 square feet of land assembled by the company around the Bell Centre, Windsor Station and on sites South of St. Antoine St.

"This is a first phase of a multi-phase, multi-year project," said Sal Iacono, senior vice-president, development and portfolio management, Eastern Canada for Cadillac Fairview.

For years, owners of a number of Montreal sites have been trying to convince tenants to pay the higher net rents required to defray the cost of new construction. But with rents for Montreal's top buildings lagging behind comparable towers in other Canadian cities, tenants had little incentive to sign up for new construction.

That's changing, as Montreal's Class A vacancy rate hovers at six per cent, and tenants demand better ventilation and other features that come with LEED construction. In moving to the new tower, Deloitte will be giving up just under 200,000 square feet of space at Place Ville Marie.

"There is starting to be a mindset among first-class tenants like Deloitte that if they want to occupy the best of available spaces moving forward in the future, these can only be offered in new buildings," Iacono said.

With this announcement, Deloitte will become the key tenant for two new Canadian office towers. In June, Deloitte was announced as anchor tenant for the 44-storey Bay Adelaide Centre East, to be built by Brookfield Properties in Toronto, where it is to lease 420,000 square feet.

In Montreal, the Deloitte Tower will include a 32-foot-high lobby facing the historic Windsor Court and an outdoor courtyard with a skating rink, public seating and park area.

Construction is set to begin October 2012 through a joint venture between PCL Constructors and Construction C.A.L.

I like installations like that. They animate the street and are a welcome sight in the dead of winter.

You like it, huh? Well there's a hell lots of others, who like throwing waste on pavements, or who like to drive a car while writing an SMS. So what am I supposed to do in order not to allow them to destroy my beloved home, my planet? I can't just kill all of them, I prefer educating people.
So here's my advise regarding the gizmo: nobody needs that bullshit. But they would just make a better use of this money, building a fancy utility structure, or a waste recycling plant!

oops, my bad. Forgot that it's not a skyscraper.
We all know architecture is only about supertalls and twisty museums.
