Here's what they want to do to my favorite building in the entire world (grain elevator No 5): they want to turn it into a HOTEL!

I have mixed feelings about it - on the one hand, I am appalled, on the other hand, I'll finally have a chance to live there - even if it's only for a night or two...

Ok, apparently, there's an alternative proposal which envisages a museum:


Voir Montréal du haut d'un silo
(Journal de Montréal) Jean-François Codère
Le Journal de Montréal

Malgré les délais bureaucratiques qui s'étirent, le Musée d'art contemporain souhaite toujours transformer le célèbre silo n° 5 du Vieux-Port en attrait touristique. Son nouveau plan, qui sera rendu public au cours des prochaines semaines, prévoit notamment un observatoire avec vue sur la ville.

I know hotels need windows, but i personally don't really like that design. The building doesn't look like itself. i think there's some way of turning it into livable space without changing it entirely.
