    A brand new co-op apartment building is being planned for the corner of St-Jacques and Mountain Street.

      There’s been a Salvation Army store on Notre-Dame near Guy since I can remember, but now a new owner is closing it down to make room for condos and offices.

        Is that still Griffintown? I always thought of it as being in Little Burgundy…

        Google maps indicates that Notre-Dame is the boundary there, things on the south side being Griffintown and on the north side, Little Burgundy. The Sally Ann is on the south side, but it’s a fine distinction.

        Sad to hear it, I made lots of great finds there as a student. Of course that was over 20 years ago…
        I didn’t realize the G and Little B were divided down Notre Dame – is the westernmost boundary still charlevoix?

        Ian, if you go on Google maps and click on the neighbourhood names, it fills the corresponding area in. I don’t know where they get borders for traditional neighbourhoods that may never have had official designations, but at a glance, Google thinks Atwater is the boundary between St-Henri and Little Burgundy. Charlevoix is not a boundary street on the Google map.

        I’m now clicking on this map and there’s a section that’s east of Guy and south of St-Antoine that isn’t included in Griffintown but isn’t part of any other ‘hood either. So it’s not perfect.

        At least it defines the Old Port correctly!

      Aéroports de Montréal has a survey up about airplane noise, although the recent hike in complaints seems to be due more to a new app making it effortless.

        Here are a few weekend driving notes well in advance.

        Update: Whatever notes were there on Thursday they’ve been changed because harsh weather is expected on the weekend.

          Last August, a passerby died after a freak accident near the construction work on Plaza St-Hubert. A flying stone chip hit him in the head and he died two days later. Now the CNESST report reveals the site was not properly secured, the worker using a diamond saw had no training on using the tool, the work was being done by a subcontractor of a subcontractor and the middleman is washing his hands of the business.

            Two businesses were shot at near midnight Wednesday night. Uncle Pete’s Café in Little Italy had customers inside but no one was hurt. The door of a recording studio in Ahuntsic was also shot up. Indications are that police are not certain whether the two incidents are related.
