LeDevoir published a short article on our "dream city" mentioning several well-known and not-so-well-known projects. Tramways were mentioned, of course - all 200 km of them, but there were some new tidbits, too.

For, example, as useful as it is to get your gas @ at the corner of St-Laurent and St-Catherine, perhaps such a central location deserves something other than a gas station. Borough Ville-Marie seems to be thinking along the same lines:

Il faut dire que, il y a quelque mois déjà, le maire de l'arrondissement Ville-Marie, Benoît Labonté, avait fait connaître la proposition architecturale qui allait donner au carrefour Saint-Laurent/Sainte-Catherine un nouveau visage. Et surtout, lors de cette annonce, on informait que Gaétan Demers, à qui l'on doit cette réussite qu'est le Quartier international, serait le maître d'oeuvre du projet.

it is ridiculous that there's only one gas station downtown. in the south shore you can find at least one within a 3 minute drive. sometimes there are 3 at one intersection.
