Personally I think it leads to two 30 story buildings instead of one dynamic 60 story... which just creates building congestion in the city core and blocks out the mountain from downtown even more than fewer taller buildings.. Apparently only the top of the mountain needs to be seen.... so yeah, it probably has more to do with wealthy people looking down then anyone looking up.

Former newspaper building reborn as luxury hotel.
19 June 2009
Canwest News Service

MONTREAL - The newest luxury hotel in Montreal bears little resemblance to the building's previous incarnation as home to the Montreal Gazette and, before that, the Montreal Star.

Le Westin Montreal, which began accepting guests a week ago, is the result of a $90-million investment by ATLIFIC Hotels.

Where the newspaper presses once rumbled and rolled along the side of the building is now an enclosed grand entrance to the spacious lobby of the 450- room hotel.

It is also the entry to the 160-space, six-level underground parking garage.

Built atop the former parking lot is the 22-storey St. Antoine Tower, with 333 guest rooms and a 143-seat street-level restaurant/lounge appropriately called Gazette.

Food and drinks are also available at the Reporter bar on the mezzanine floor of the adjacent main building.

During a tour of the transformed facilities, general manager Jacques Baheux said "ownership is dedicated to making this A-plus," and to "creating our own town."

The hotel boasts 40,000 square feet of conference space and reception rooms, as well as retail areas and 100,000 square feet of office space for rent.

Eric Huot of the Montreal firm Geiger & Huot Architectes, who led what he called "the very complicated Westin project," said the challenge was revitalizing, preserving and restoring the premises to maintain the facades of the three buildings that comprised the St. Antoine block.

There was the first Montreal Star building, which dated back to 1899, an art- deco-style extension designed in 1929, and the Gazette building built in the 1950s.

"We had to combine all three existing buildings and co-ordinate them with the tower," Huot said of the three-and-a-half-year project. The effort included removing the mechanical room on the roof of the Gazette building and adding four floors.

Baheux said ATLIFIC, a fast-growing hotel management company that owns other properties across Canada, worked with Westin Hotels & Resorts "to help the Westin flag make a comeback" in the city after a long absence.

The Omni Mont-Royal Hotel and Hilton Montreal Bonaventure were the last Montreal hotels to be owned by Westin.

"We chose the Westin Hotels & Resorts banner because it is synonymous with the high standard of quality and refinement this heritage building should convey," Philippe Gadbois, executive vice-president of ATLIFIC Hotels, said last week. Baheux said this week the hotel is awaiting its classification, but anticipates it will be granted five-start status.

"We are delighted with the new Westin MontrŽal," John Dunn, executive vice- president of Tourism Montreal, said in a statement.

"Its strategic location near the Palais des congres (convention centre) and its sheer number of rooms will certainly position Montreal as a frontrunner in the race to host major events."

And some projects which should start construction within a year.

Site de la Place du Centenaire, 62 stories, 200 meters. Residential and a hotel.

(image from Leftcoster, SSP)

Place de la Cité Internationale – Phase 2, office.
It's been rumored that Rio Tinto Alcan might move into this building. The design has change, and the height as well, but it hasn't been release to the public yet. So here is an old Render. (It will be right in Square victoria, which is where the Altoria is being built right now!) The parking and foundations are already there, so it will take only 18 month -2 years to built this project!


(image from Gilbert, mtlurb.com)

Place Félix Martin, 2nd tower. SNC-Lavallin Headquarters. office.
SNC-Lavallin, ingeneering-giant, has announce it plans to build a second tower, somewhere between 30-40 stories tall. Insiders are informing us of a great design with renowned architects. Should be interesting.

Current HQ:
http://www.ameco-17.com/gallery.htm

And the first Canadian location for a Waldorf Astoria. Preperation work has already started, so soon it will be U/C ! 35 Stories, 120 meters, 200 million $ .

The design will change slightly...

Mayor of Montreal, Gerald Tremblay unveils new soccer complex in the city

Saucier + Perrotte and Hughes Condon Marler Architects have been announced as winners of an architecture competition to design a new football centre at the Saint-Michel Environmental Complex (SMEC) in Montreal. Located on the site of a former quarry, the soccer complex incorporates a single full-size pitch which can be divided into a number of smaller pitches for five- or seven-a-side, a fitness and physiotherapy room, locker rooms, event and restaurant facilities, and family rest area.

The SMRC Park features a cluster of trees on a wooded embankment which offer a human scale to the new facility in its grounds, the architects explaining that ‘the volumes of the building will rise like a series of luminous crystals among the trees’. A wooden roof will rest on a shimmering glass envelope, overhanging a base that is targeting LEED-NC Gold certification to fall in line with Montreal’s policy on sustainable development for municipal buildings. The Ville de Montreal is funding $15.6m of the full $28.3m cost, with the remainder made up by the governments of Canada and Quebec.

Ville de Montreal Executive Committee Member, Manon Barbe, who is responsible for Sports and Recreation, commented: “Soccer is constantly growing in popularity in the province of Quebec as well as in Montreal, where there are more than 40,000 competitive players. The indoor soccer centre therefore fills a real need. Soccer is an accessible sport, and with the new facility it will remain so year-round.” The Mayor of Montreal, Gerald Tremblay, stated: “This public building, a testament to the talent of our local architects, will be incorporated into the SMEC, one of the largest parks in Montreal.”

And some projects... :

New hall for Verdun, by FABG.
16 million $, up to 444 seats,





Gare Viger;
this old train station, build for the francophone elite, will get a new life. Although their was a project for it in 2007, it was cancelled. It was just bought by local developers, and they plan to build 700 residences. they are hoping to start this summer, and that's all we know. It's right across the CHUM and the CRCHUM, so these mega-hospitals are already encouraging development! More is for sure to come. This building s just outstanding, build in the Canadian Château style (like Château Frontenac in Québec city). It's a pity how it has been abandon such a long time.








There is also a lot of 'buzz' around the bell center. The 62-stories tower I posted above is not going to be alone in that corner, investors are buying (for a high sum) all the land and parking lots around. We have some Chinese investors for the Overdale lot (old victorian house, in the middle of weeds!). But nothing more for now, I will keep you updated!

Also, the Griffintown area is starting to build hundreds of condos, in towers around 20 stories tall. The town is finally moving forward!
