Building condos on Mount Royal

condos on mount royal

Montreal’s iconic Mont Royal has been a subject of controversy lately with the proposal to build condos on Mount Royal. The debate has sparked strong reactions from the community with some in favour of the development and others strongly opposing it.

Proponents of the development argue that it would bring much-needed housing to the city and provide an opportunity for people to live in one of the most beautiful locations in Montreal. They also argue that the development would create jobs and boost the local economy.

Opponents, on the other hand, argue that Mont Royal is a vital green space for the city and building condos on its slopes would destroy its natural beauty and harm its ecosystem. They also argue that it would set a dangerous precedent for other developers to follow, potentially leading to further destruction of green spaces in the city.

The debate has been fierce, with both sides making compelling arguments. However, it’s worth considering the potential consequences of building on Mont Royal. If the development were to go ahead, it’s possible that it could lead to a decline in tourism and negatively impact the city’s reputation as a beautiful, green city.

It’s essential to consider the long-term effects of the decision, rather than just the short-term benefits. It’s also worth exploring other options for increasing housing in the city, such as brownfield sites or vacant lots.

In conclusion, the debate to build condos on Mont Royal is a complex issue with strong arguments on both sides. Ultimately, it’s up to the city to weigh the pros and cons and make a decision that best serves the community and the environment. But, let’s face it, wouldn’t it be amazing to have a condo with a view of the mountain
