Concordia Needs Some Colour

Or something.
If you walk west along de Maisonneuve you will see Concordia’s concentration of buildings looking like a strange compressed overlap of styles. Here is the view from 8 floors up.


It’s interesting what you can see with one photograph like this bit of local history embedded on the side of a concrete high rise.

And we see a lot of good downtown space being wasted as parking space that is no longer a relevant model of downtown land management. You could easily put buildings AND green space there that bring the city more revenues.
Concordia’s new buildings on Guy street look quite good from some angles but we see evidence in that “back door” view that development needs to be looked at globally – what are we bringing to the city viewed from all sides?
