Olympic Stadium, Montreal

olympic stadium montrealThe Olympic Stadium is a multi-purpose stadium in Montreal, Quebec, Canada built as the main venue for the 1976 Summer Olympics. It subsequently became the home of Montreal's professional baseball and Canadian football teams.

It currently serves as a 56,040-seat multipurpose facility for special events (e.g. concerts, trade shows) during non-winter months, and continues to serve as a venue for Grey Cup games hosted by the Montreal Alouettes. La Tour de Montreal, the tower incorporated into the base of the stadium, is the tallest inclined tower in the world at 175 metres, and is a member of the World Federation of Great Towers.

The Google Earth 3d building of the Olympic Stadium is pretty impressive so I have added the ability to view the stadium with the new Google Earth browser to the map.
