i think a good slender 200M tower would be better with a spire on top.

However if it were in the US, it would be just another major city. #4 in the country.

However in Canada it will always remain on top no matter what.

^ if it were in the US, it wouldn't have been what it has become anyways. It would have probably ended up much like Buffalo (no offence to it).

it would be just montreal and vancouver as the major cities of canada. montreal would likely be a huge metropolis by now.

montreal would be massive and be lets say like the GTA.

huge and massive with millions of people. However Quebec screwed Montreal over a lot and now it will remain the 2nd big city in Canada however which is French.

I believe in the 50's and 60's Montreal city planning was done with the idea that the city was going to hit 8 mil around 2000 in mind. How quickly things change.

Something to keep in mind when you hear population estimates for the future.

Well there isn't really anything to report. Kolter is unlikely to move forward with the project. The lot will likely be sold to another developer. Whenever of if that happens it will be an entirely different project.

The renderings that have been posted at various times over the past few years aren't going to be what happens.

Don't expect any action any time soon.

Me too. Even if the old plan is canceled, the zoning is in place for a huge tower in a prime location, so I would expect something to hapen there sooner rather than later.
