Private green oasis makes way for condos on Sherbrooke - Montréal

Sherbrooke - Gascon garden 4

This beautiful yard/garden next to a duplex on the corner of Sherbrooke st and Gascon avenue in Montréal will be the setting for a new construction site for new condos which will be built around or as an extension of the current building. See billboard directly below.

How sad is that? It's such a beautiful place. When I took these photos on a warm day in August the yard was such a cool and relaxing place. This new projects highlights one thing: the disappearance of private green space in and around old disappearing small houses or expansions on old buildings such as this one. The number of vanishing small green space during this condo boom is quite sad.
Cette belle cour / jardin à côté d'un duplex qui se trouve au coin de la rue Sherbrooke et avenue Gascon à Montréal sera le site d'un nouveau chantier de construction pour de condos neufs qui seront construits autour ou comme extension du bâtiment actuel. Voir affiche directement ci-dessous.

C'est assez tristesse, non. C'est un très bel endroit. Quand j'ai pris ces photos durant une journée chaude et humide d'Août  la cour était un endroit idéal pour relaxer. Ce nouveau projet souligne un aspect troublant: la disparition des espaces verts privés avec la disparition de petites vieilles maisons ou des extensions de vieux bâtiments comme celui-ci. Le nombre de petit espace vert privé perdu au cours du boom de condos est assez triste.
