The city of Montreal has many important projects, but they are smaller than 37 floors.

The height is unknown, but it will be around 120 meters.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but will this building be the tallest structure on Sherbrooke?

Considering its location, I think its roof might be equal in height to 1000 de la Gauchetiere and PVM in terms of feet above sea level.

Being a Montrealer, I think it good that we finally got some height going up again, but the design is too conservative. The architects could of put a little more effort into making the design a bit more modern.

Montreal has a ton of projects! In fact, there are several mega-projects on the table, including a massive 1.3$billion development project spanning a dozen city blocks. There are currently ~41 skyscrapers approved or under construction in Montreal, many of them 25 floors and more.

Surface parking lots are becoming extremely rare in Montreal!

I believe he is mocking Montreal by implying that Montreal cannot experience a boom, whereas the close the ~40 skyscrapers currently under construction or planned suggest otherwise.

interesting. looks like montreal is underrepresented here. by the sound of this thread (120m tower tallest u/c since 1992) I thought montreal is rather anti-highrise.

The 200m height-limit has instilled a preference for "medium"-height skyscrapers it seems (among both developers and citizens), but if the trend continues, a 50-storey+ could see the day pretty soon.

The density is one of the things that makes Montreal great. One of the reasons many films set in New York City are actually filmed in Montreal (including one just last week!), along with many architectural similarities

'many of them 25 floors and more"MOST PEOPLE WOULD NOT CONSIDER A BUILDING OF 25 FLOORS TO BE A SKYSCRAPER.
