Awesome reclamation project in Madrid, Spain, shows us once again how Turcot is shaping up as a totally blown opportunity. As cities around the world tear down elevated freeways, eliminate congested roadways, here in Quebec we have decided that the ideal thing to replace a freeway with is (drumroll) another freeway!
The video below also mentions how the Madrid project placed an emphasis on opening views of the old city. Here, the Griffintown development is going to block some of the most wonderful views of downtown available. There is a 1% get to live there 99% get their views taken away mentality with that Griffintown project and it’s usually called elitism.
