I'm currently sorting out some issues with my computer so I won't be posting much until that's resolved. In the meantime...
New condo project between De Lorimier and Parthenais just next to Jacques Cartier bridge, just at the edge of Le Village. There has been an empty lot there for some time. The two photos at the bottom were taken last fall.

The CineFilms building, a solid looking building on the corner of St-Jacques and Irene streets in Saint-Henri, is getting a major facelift, including floors added on top of it for new condos. The last image shows how it's supposed to look like.

Nothing much to say except that the first steps of the project have started last fall.

This depanneur on the corner of Ste-Emilie and Bourget is (or was) one of the most recognizable landmarks in Saint-Henri but even with that recognition it wasn't enough to save it and the building from demolition. No outcry or anything. Pretty sad. I took the top photo back in June of 2008.

New construction on the corner of Turgeon and St-Ambroise in Saint-Henri. Nothing much to report as the new construction has been built on an empty lot/yard. The two top photos are before, taken last fall, and the two bottom photos are current.
