BTW, some rumors are saying that Rogers would like to move in the 701 University (33-storeys project). Because Rogers needs many spaces, the project would be revised to more than 50 floors (could be the Montreal tallest), and the construction would begin soon.

Green light for Griffintown project



Despite some pressure to delay the vote, Montreal city council has approved a revised urban plan for Griffintown, the last major hurdle for a $1.3-billion project to transform the semi-industrial district into a commercial and condominium complex.

Council voted on the revised urban plan Monday night, approving it nearly unanimously.

City councillor Marvin Rotrand — who pushed to delay the vote by a month to give elected officials more time for review — said the vote was a letdown.

"[It's] rather disappointing that Montreal council thinks that a $1.3-billion project merits a 33-minute debate," he told CBC News.

"Construction is supposed to [start] in August 2009 … So I don't really understand why there was the rush," he said. "The promoter doesn't own all the land. But evidently the majority feeling was that this is the best thing to happen to Montreal in ages, so let's just go ahead and do it.

"I think that a lot of people are going to have a lot of doubts for a long time."

Private developer Devimco wants to demolish most of Griffintown and build a commercial shopping complex with residential condominium buildings.

The revised urban plan for the project was modified earlier this spring to include some green features recommended during the course of several public hearings held on the project.

Critics were concerned the project would mark the loss of an important period of Montreal's industrial history. Griffintown was settled by Irish immigrants in the 19th and 20th centuries and is the site of several heritage buildings, as well as one of the country's oldest grid street designs.

Many architects, urban planners and prominent Montrealers have spoken out against the scale and scope of the Devimco project, calling for more discussion about what to do in the sparsely inhabited neighbourhood.

Most residents aren't opposed to some kind of development in the southwest district, but feel uncomfortable with Devimco's plans. "It doesn't smell good," said Véronique Staham, who owns a loft in Griffintown. "I think there's some [competing] interests underneath that, and I have no [faith] anymore in the democracy," she said.

Several community groups pressured the city to send the project to Montreal's public consultation office for further review. The southwest borough held several public meetings on the Devimco proposal but shied away from formal public consultations.

The two towers of 60 storeys are probably cancelled... The two plots, where the towers would have been built, were sold to Devimco to build a cultural complex with a 25-storey tower.

Griffintown - La SHDM cède deux terrains à Devimco
Jeanne Corriveau

La Société d'habitation et de développement de Montréal (SHDM) a décidé hier de céder deux de ses terrains à Devimco, le promoteur du projet de Griffintown, en prévision du développement de l'îlot culturel en bordure du bassin Peel.

La transaction, qui a reçu l'aval du conseil d'administration de la SHDM hier, n'a pas encore été conclue, car l'acheteur doit procéder à une vérification diligente, a indiqué hier la porte-parole de la SHDM, Stéphanie Gareau, en précisant que les terrains sont contaminés et que l'une des deux parcelles compte un entrepôt ayant une valeur historique.

Compte tenu de la vérification qui doit être faite, Mme Gareau n'a pas voulu dévoiler le montant de la transaction qui sera conclue. «Ce n'est pas une vente à rabais que la SHDM fait à Devimco, a-t-elle assuré. On parle d'un montant qui se situe dans les mêmes échelles de prix que si la Ville avait dû exproprier les terrains.» Elle soutient que la SHDM n'avait pas à procéder par appel d'offres puisqu'il s'agit d'un organisme privé.

Les deux terrains, dont l'un est vacant, sont situés dans l'îlot culturel où Devimco projette de construire un hôtel et une salle de spectacle. «En les vendant à Devimco, on prend acte de la décision du conseil municipal, qui a approuvé, plus tôt cette semaine, le programme particulier d'urbanisme de Griffintown», a expliqué Mme Gareau.

Concurrent en colère

Cette vente a fait bondir le promoteur Roland Hakim, propriétaire de deux terrains en bordure du bassin Peel. M. Hakim, qui livre depuis quelques mois une guerre ouverte à Devimco, aurait voulu acquérir les lots appartenant à la SHDM afin de réaliser son propre projet de tours de 60 étages comportant un hôpital privé, une gare intermodale, un hôtel ainsi qu'une salle de spectacle. «Je suis propriétaire des terrains limitrophes à ceux de la SHDM, alors que Devimco ne possède aucun terrain dans l'îlot culturel et qu'il n'a aucune promesse d'achat dans cet îlot. Pourquoi les vendre à lui alors que nous avons un projet que tout le monde connaît? Pourquoi y a-t-il tant de favoritisme à l'égard de Devimco?», s'est demandé le propriétaire, qui estime que la SHDM aurait dû procéder par appel d'offres.

M. Hakim figure parmi les propriétaires de terrains qui seront expropriés par la Ville de Montréal au profit de Devimco. Plus tôt cette semaine, les élus montréalais ont approuvé le PPU de Griffintown, mais il ont également donné leur aval à l'acquisition de gré à gré ou l'expropriation de 27 lots qui seront cédés au promoteur Devimco. Les avis d'expropriation seront expédiés à compter de la fin de mai aux propriétaires avec qui le coprésident de Devimco, Serge Goulet, n'arrivera pas à conclure d'entente.

Why does Montreal seem to have a height limit?

I love Montreal but always wondered why the buildings were squatty. Is it because of Mount Royal?

I would say yes , and another important factor is there are lots of rich and powerful people living on the slope of Mount Royal with their Multimillion dollars homes ,they wouldn't want their castles to be obstructed by skyscrapers , that's why Montreal will never "grow" unless there's a policy to direct the City core away from Mount Royal look out
