Lots. Our banks aren't constantly collapsing so none of the big projects are being put on hold or cancelled.

Dude, Canada and the United States were where the first modern skyscrapers were built. These 2 countries were home to the tallest buildings in the world up until quite recently. What a bizarre comment. It's like asking if there are English speaking people in England.

Here's more proof. This is Montréal in the mid 1960s. Canada has always had tall buildings. In fact in 1963, Montréal even had taller buildings than Chicago, a city famous for its skyscrapers.

Hmmm, I agree somewhat. I think that this will be a great building but the cladding isn't anything special at this point IMO.

But the renders look good enough for me to keep this opinion temporary.

There seems to be a few people who don't like the cladding, while others are thrilled to bits over it. I fall in the second camp. It's definitely in my top 2% of cladding over the past 5 years globally.

It is a shame that they weren't able to keep pace with Chicago. Most people are shocked when they find out that Montreal, at one point, had taller buildings.

He's just poking fun. I doubt he actually believes that Montréal still looks like that.
