Construction St-Augustin - St-Henri

7:40 PM


Amazing construction site on St-Augustin in St-Henri. They kept the old house to integrate it with the future new structure. The old house was being kept standing on stilts. I'll show a Before / After on soon.

Incroyable chantier de construction sur la rue St-Augustin à St-Henri. Ils ont gardé la structure de la vieille maison pour l'intégrer à la nouvelle structure. La vieille maison était sauvé par des échasses. Je vais vous montrer un Avant / Après bientôt.

  1. The place in 2009: https://www.google.ca/maps/@45.4774049,-73.5803241,3a,75y,198.94h,92.69t/data=!3m7!1e1!3m5!1sf5_Jq5SWxq2RHHaajVX8kw!2e0!5s20090401T000000!7i13312!8i6656

    Seeing what they're going to do with it will be very interesting. Maybe we'll have a Montreal version of those mega-basements we're seeing in London (where if you can't go up or out, you may as well go down a couple of storeys).

    And I will admit it: I *like* those old-fashioned awnings over windows and doors. I contend that they are a genuine and honest part of the architectural vernacular of middle-class and working class buildings.

    Please don't re-brick this in some God awful Réno Dépot sale grey concrete brick... .

  2. They sure aren't preserving a lot. I wonder why they even bother.
