That area of Longueuil looks very "European suburban", at least as much as I've ever seen an area look like that in NA. Just the scale of the plazas, the configuration of roads, etc.

The first phase will look something like this. The first tower, the 25 stories Sir Charles, will start construction this fall, with a second tower following very soon after.

Unfortunately, the architecture is mediocre :-(
Looks great! I'm sure it'll help the area feel less bleak.

Good way of putting it. I can see that for sure.

Love the Longueil proposal. Sure the architecture is pretty basic, but it looks like a true 15-minute transit oriented community.

Not really. Some Canadians are just stubbornly self-deprecating.

Toronto really doesn't feel much like New York, anyway.

New York is old, towering, compressed, monumental, in some ways the final European capital.

Toronto is sprawling, secretive, comfortable, loose-jointed, a New World super-grid of Zone 3 London.

Yes, Toronto is very much its own place. Like most cities it rapid ascension, no one is quite sure what it will look and feel like when the dust settles. Not only is it unfair to judge a work in progress but views become outdated/inaccurate in a few short years. Comparisons to other places, Zone 3 included, are best avoided. Toronto is building a bigger better version of itself. Perhaps people should leave it at that.

No renders yet, but some potential excitement brewing in Surrey...

Two office towers, the tallest being 47 floors / 225 metres!

The East tower is described as a 47 storey office building, but would be the equivalent of a 75 storey residential building, which if built would be higher than anything currently existing in Greater Vancouver. However Burnaby’s proposed Gatineau Place Tower is 250 m or 82 storeys. Really exciting project for Surrey.

Hadn't heard of this one until now. I don't see how they can tenant something like that in Surrey unless they have a specific tenant already in mind. A 225m office building is what they were building in the midst of the boom in Calgary for 1 million square foot tenants. Those don't exist in Surrey at all, they've only existed downtown Vancouver for a few years.

Yeah, it is a surprise for sure. I also feel they must have some tenant already in mind if this is a serious proposal.

It apparently seems to be first phase of the massive Centre Block redevelopment announced last fall.
