Olympic Stadium

Wishlisted by Matt Mayer

Nicknamed the "Big O" due to its shape, it quickly gained the moniker "The Big Owe" due to the exponentially increasing costs of construction. While the stadium did house the 1976 Olympic ceremonies, the tower and the roof were not completed until 1987. The stadium has not had a major tenant since the Expos baseball team left in 2004. The deteriorating roof means that events cannot be held if more than 3cm of snow falls. Whether a new roof is constructed, or the stadium is eventually demolished, it seems Montreal's stadium will never live up to its Olympic dream.
