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
(matériaux et volumétrie);

Remember what happened with 400 Sherbrooke West.

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. ;)

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.

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.

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.

That's tall for Montreal! With its prices range and its location. I'm not too worried about this one.
