I'm annoyed that the new crop of highrise condos are so large and stealing prominence from the major office buildings. The office buildings have much more unique and iconic designs and make for better peaks and focal points in the skyline. I'd generally rather have the condo buildings top out at maybe 160m and act as infill with maybe a couple really special ones joining the ranks of the big guns.

Just wish we had a peak in the skyline instead of everything topping out at 200m.

This guy is from Québec City. I've observed that alot of people from Québec City like to bash Montréal for no reason and have a hard time recognizing some of its qualities.
One of my former workmate doesn't even want to set foot in Montréal. Ridiculous.

I like all the projects going up lately in Montréal and seriously the city is on fire, but I am quite dissapointed they are going kind of ''table top'' with the skyline. Wasn't the main idea to make a ''gradient'' (Dégradé?) in the skyline to mimic mount royal, but with a skyline?
Correct me if I am wrong.

I love this. It's still made of squares, but it's visually more attractive.

I find it genuinely upsetting. Like... pick a fucking facade. Don't ask a focus group or something to choose the design and when they can't make up their mind just shrug and go with both. wtf...
