Tis is a project I really hope goes through quickly, what a perfect spot to build a tower.

Although I think everyone agrees a better, fresher cladding is in order.

Jringe01 Jan 29, 2012 10:49 PM

I know it's only been a month but anyone have any more info about this project? Where for example would it be located...I ask because I don't recognize the 2 buildings on either side in the rendering

lake of the nations Jan 29, 2012 10:56 PM

Here is the parking lot on which it would be built.

Cool...thanks

WOW...pretty close to Square Phillips and with that other proposed tower at 1215 that area of town would start filling in nicely. Crossing my fingers :)

It's on Union street. Here's where it is on Google map:

Donc, ce serait en biais avec l'Altitude !!??

Tout à fait. Cet îlot est destiné à changer de façon drastique au cours des prochaines années.

Oui! Du changement! Montréal le mérite. Une si belle ville entachée par des buildings comme la Place Ville-Marie ou le 1000 de la Gauchetière.:yuck:

Ah Montréal....Ah le Québec... Parfois je m'ennuie mais ça ne dure jamais longtemps. Quand je sors dehors au mois de janvier et qu'il fait 20 degrés à Hollywood et qu'ensuite je pense au -10 que vous avez et que j'avait, ça disparait. J'adore L.A.!:cheers:

J'aime mieux un -10 ou un -20 de temps en temps que les 7 fléaux de Los Angeles (Les tremblements de terre, l'extrème chaleur, la circulation, la pollution, Paris Hilton, la violence et les feux).

Tout à fait d'accord avec toi. On peut bien reprocher toute sorte de chose à Montréal en matière de gratte-ciels, mais ses édifices phares (le 1000, le 1250, la Tour de la Bourse, la Place Victoria et la tour CIBC) sont vraiment très classe.

G.S MTL Mar 6, 2012 7:41 PM

how come TOUR UNION isn't in my Montreal's database?

PVM est un édifice dans le plus pur style international et tout en respectant le style le magnifie, le rend plus attrayant. Quant au 1000, je n'irai pas aussi loin que toi mais il a un grave défaut : il ne possède que deux facades intéressantes (la nord et la sud). Les deux autres sont insignifiantes malheureusement !!

Pour ce qui est de Los Angeles : une ville "tout à l'auto" ?!?!?! Non merci !!! Une ville qui peut très bien être complètement rayée de la carte ce soir ou n'importe quand ? Non merci !!!!!! Paris Hilton ? Hum...laissez-moi réfléchir !!!

Rico Rommheim Mar 7, 2012 11:43 PM

Very close minded attitude. There's more to LA than that I'm sure, just as ignorant as saying everyone in Montreal is poor, or a separatist, etc.

MTLskyline Mar 8, 2012 12:09 AM

^ Unfortunately this is the sort of prevailing wisdom on mtlurb. Most American cities to them are sprawling hellholes overrun by God-fearing xenophobes driving huge polluting cars (and listening to Rush Limbaugh's noise pollution over the radio). (Here is a recent photo thread someone did on LA.. It's not that bad http://forum.skyscraperpage.com/showthread.php?t=198013 )

There is more to America (and Los Angeles) than what the tired stereotypes suggest.

emplacement idéal, grandeur parfait, design moche.

G.S MTL Mar 8, 2012 3:07 AM

what is the height?

G.S MTL Mar 8, 2012 3:15 AM

125m?

Ce n'est fort probablement pas le design final.

En plus des critères prévus au titre VIII du règlement, les critères additionnels suivants s'appliquent :
- Le traitement architectural de la surhauteur doit favoriser une meilleure intégration architecturale des
balcons en saillie;
- La couleur et la texture de l'enveloppe du basilaire doivent être compatibles avec celles des édifices
significatifs voisins;- les constructions hors toit doivent être traitées de manière à assurer leur intégration architecturale

I think that's a fair estimate. I wish developers made exact heights more accessible. We still don't know how tall the altoria going to be.

Sales for this tower will soon begin!

I kind of like the Paris Hilton, I stayed there once and it was pretty comfy. But I fail to understand what it has to do with L.A. ;)

MTLskyline Apr 29, 2012 3:30 AM

They made it uglier, IMO. I much prefer the charcoal-coloured Louis-Bohème pre-fab panels to this suburban looking modification.

What the hell is that? What is wrong with Montreal developers? Christ, even Burnaby is building nicer towers than this. Ok fine, it fills one ugly hole and brings in light where there has been darkness for ages. But this is Square Phillips man, people will see it.

MTLskyline May 3, 2012 5:53 PM

I agree, this is architectural garbage. People over at mtlurb get all excited for Karl Fischer projects, but I have yet to see something of his I actually like.

Rico Rommheim May 3, 2012 6:39 PM

How did we come to this I wonder. For a city that branded itself to Victorian folk as the "Paris of North America", the developers sure aren't living up to these standards. Is there no more pride left in this city?

big T May 4, 2012 1:53 AM

This belongs on nun's island, not Philips square.

Jringe01 May 4, 2012 3:34 AM

I agree...while I love the height the design as currently pictured does seem a bit out of place compared to other downtown towers (both existing and planned)

But is this for sure a done deal? I mean is it possible the design might yet change?

Martin Mtl May 5, 2012 1:45 PM

Like the design or not, it looks like this one will have 40 storeys. Add in today's La Presse.

MTLskyline May 5, 2012 3:31 PM

This building will be at least the height of Altitude.:yuck:

Wellz May 5, 2012 5:17 PM

At 40 floors, this building may surpass or at least reach the height of the proposed Icone tower.

Rico Rommheim May 5, 2012 10:48 PM

40 floors?? Could it be that the developers took a cue from the other 40 floor proposals down the street? I like it.

I think the look of the tower will change again over time, like it will be refined.

We can only pray! In my opinion this is the worst kind of condo architecture. Even if they tweek it, I'm not a fan of even the basic premise. The only thing I like is the height and location, but after that it's an embarrassment.

MTLskyline May 10, 2012 2:45 AM

Here is a new render for you! There are indeed 40 floors if I counted correctly.

Funny how the render makes it seem like you'll be able to see the full tower from bottom to top from Rene Levesque but that isn't actually so so

It's been changed a little again. It's a minor improvement, but I still liked the original render with the black facade the best.

Rumors May 23, 2012 1:42 AM

I took a photo Sunday of where I think it might be built, but I don't want to post it in case I'm wrong. :ack:

MTLskyline May 23, 2012 1:59 AM

^ You have a fairly good chance of getting it. Union Street is not huge. It's on the same block as Altitude, but at the parking lot on Union where the Blue Bird Café was located until it was intentionally burned in 1972. Personally I would not consider this project just because of the horrible tragedy which killed 37 people.

Rico Rommheim May 25, 2012 8:55 AM

Name change please! TOM condos!

And a quick look at their website tells you that they've boosted it to 40 floors!! :banana:
