I am familiar with the project a little bit.
But as far as I know, nobody knows yet if the whole thing is going to be built. Obviously, the issue is a landmark building on De la Gauchetière which would be very close, but not only that - the rumour on the street is that the owner is the Edifice Beaver is against his building being demolished for the project. (This is not corroborated, though - so take it for what it's worth).
In other words, it's a case of "let's wait and see".
Personally, I think it's a good idea, especially the condo units, which are desperately needed to turn the Quartier International into a genuine neighbourhood, but as always, the devil is in the details.
