I'm still here! I never go to mtlurb, probably one of the most unpleasant sites I've ever had the misfortune of visiting. The people on that board are all on crack.

I'm also very busy so I haven't been taking many pictures or posting much.

There's no building page for this...but I do have a photo. I found out through google that this is the Residence Ora...a retirement building in Ahuntsic-Cartierville:http://www.legroupemaurice.com/en/residence/ora/

Is Mtlurb still lorded over by Malek? That delightful soul referred to my current city as a "shithole" (even though he lives in Laval).

I believe he is. I never really liked the site either. I visit 2 or 3 times a year to see what's happening in the city, but I also find that the general climate there is rather odd. I can't put my finger on it, but there is something depressing about that forum. Could be worse, the Canada section on skyscrapercity is the epitome of the term "depressing".

I agree. I miss many of the forumers that decamped to Mtl.urb. Plus all the great updates on Montreal projects...but at least there are a few here that keep it up

I like SSP because it isn't insular. As much as I enjoy local updates, I am interested in what is going on elsewhere.

Didn't take a picture- but the Musique Plus building on St. Catherine and Bleury appears to be getting a reclad.

I bet a major reclad will be announced, sooner or later, for the Rogers/CityTV building on McGill College Avenue & Cathcart. Also much needed

The CIBC Tower antenna may be removed.

Quote:
CKOI: The days of Montreal’s most powerful radio transmitter are numbered. The 307,000-watt signal, grandfathered at that power when the federal government imposed a 100kW limit on FM stations in the 1960s, is being replaced by a new transmitter on the Mount Royal Antenna, that will be higher up but lower power (147kW) so its pattern doesn’t extend beyond its current one.

Lachance said the plan is to make the move this year, probably around June. After that, the existing transmitter and antenna on the CIBC building at Peel St. and René-Lévesque Blvd. downtown will likely be torn down. CKOI’s backup transmitter, and others for Cogeco stations and some Bell stations, is in Laval’s Auteuil district.

Most people won’t notice a change. But Cogeco believes the higher antenna will mean less interference from large buildings and the mountain itself.

I usually hate antennae but I like the one atop the CIBC tower.
