Montréal's iconic 1 Place Ville Marie, the tall building on the right.
The Tour de la Bourse was surpassed in 1969 by the Toronto-Dominion Center. Montréal has never regained the title of home to the nation's tallest building. The tallest building in Montréal today is at 1000 de la Gauchetière at 205 meters (51 floors), completed in 1992.
The tall one is 1000 de la Gauchetière. The dome is on the Cathédrale Marie-Reine du Monde. The large white block in the center is impressive and historic Sun Life Building.
I like tall buildings and I always have. Going up to the top and looking out the windows is my idea of fun. I didn't go into any of these buildings in Montréal, but I did the next best thing: I went up to the Mount Royal and looked over downtown from the observation terrace.
I don't know the names of these buildings, but I like the view of the Champlain Bridge in the background.
The city has a height limit for buildings that is equal to the height of Mount Royal. Until that changes, no building will surpass the mountain's height. Not that it will change any time soon, but nothing lasts forever, right?
Seen from the observation terrace on Mount Royal (left to right): 1000 de la Gauchetière, CIBC Tower, and 1250 René-Lévesque. If I'm not mistaken.
