Transformation of the Bonaventure Expressway at the Downtown Gateway

This project might finally get the go ahead. It will be built in several phases, and the first phase should take around 5 years. It will transform the Bonaventure Expressway at the gateway to downtown Montreal into a major urban boulevard.

The area present day,



Proposed,



Area studied to develop,





This is a cross section showing how the buildings are with the train going over it.

Holy crap!

I'm going to move next year in a new 10 floors building of condos (Lowney) they are going to start to build. I marked it with the red square.
I'm going to be in the ninth level facing this new building.
I hope not, I don't want to loose my view with the tallest building of the city!

I don’t that will ever get built. I think it was posted by a student in SSP which was his term project.

The transformation of the Bonaventure Expressway approach to downtown looks great. Is it mostly office, residential, or mixed use?

The pic of the truncated 'mysterious' tower that would be the tallest: initial reaction was that it doesn't fit in with Montreal at all, but in some respects it does. Olympic Stadium, the Casino, Habitat, the sphere (former Expo American Pavillion), and 1250 Rene Levesque. These buildings are all very unconventional.

Do you think Montreal runs the risk of becoming the next Vancouver as far as height limitations, creating a wall of buildings that are the same size? When Vancouver changed it's zoning to allow taller buildings in specific areas of the city, it's skyline just popped and really got more exciting. I totally get the idea of preserving views of one of my favorite parks in the world, but wanted to see what you guys thought.

Even if Montreal doesn't ease height restrictions, it will never look like Vancouver. Not only are there height restrictions in Vancouver, but it was recently brought to my attention from another poster that green blue and glass are the only towers allowed in Vancouver.

No such idiotic restrictions are imposed on Montreal. Montreal may not get towers passed 800 feet, but there is still room for alot of diversity.

I don't think so because Montréal's downtown still have plenty of strategic lands to be developped. A lot of outside parkings still remains today. This give time to developpers to add new buildings for few years to come.
Vancouver have more pressure than Montréal (lack of lands, the mountains and the sea). So it's a good decision to build higner.

Our city is very different from Vancouver. Historically speaking, we have had different architecture influences. We had a big boom during the 70s/80 and have a very concrete type city. That defines Montreal quite a lot.

Our climate is also different so construction techniques would be different. We can not have as much glass as Vancouver because of issues with heat loss/heat gain. It just would be way too expensive to construct the way Vancouver does here.

So in the years to come, Montreal and Vancouver will be very distinctive from each other.

Naturally, I see it being all too fitting for the city. The city's not learned how to abandon its taste for stuff that looks (too!) airportish.

As far as a next generation of landmark buildings would go, I've wondered for years if the city'd ever leap to the shape-driven aspect instead of the height one, what with the firm height limit, when out-topping the others. That tall leaning spine to the East-end stadium might've started something, no?

If it were Europeanish, wouldn't it be curvy instead of being dominated by relatively-easy-to-make harsh creases? I don't see what's modern about it either, those tubular strusses've been around decades for instance. (I don't understand how this city's considered to have European aspects, it's ultra USA . . . plumped in spots with far too many highrises instead of 10-storey buildings, SOS!)

Hmmm, I wonder if UQAM's finances will now cause the university to abandon its pissy-looking projects it's building on Berri

Was that rendering drummed up in 1957?

Looks like they've broken ground for this one this week.

I have to comment on the "spin" in the text, which refers to the proposed Quartier des Spectacles and how the area has a diverse population of artists and students. The reality is that the artists are often forced out by higher rents or new developments. This has happened in some of the neighbouring lofts. I don't want to go off topic, just that I think it sucks that Montreal often razes or boards up buildings with real character in favour of "fabricated ambience". It's all about corporate "branding."

That said, I'm all for new developments, provided they're done smartly, with real thought and consideration for existing residents.
