A second phase for Tour Des Canadiens unveiled
Cadillac Fairview, Canderel, the Fonds immobilier de solidarité FTQ and the Club de hockey Canadien have announced that they are are renewing their partnership to build Tour des Canadiens 2 what they are calling “a sequel” to Tour des Canadiens.
Tour des Canadiens 2 will be comprised of a sculpted glass tower made of slender, skewed and tapered forms inspired by icicles. By night, the illuminated “icicle tips” will glow, creating dramatic views that will appear differently when observed from various vantage points in the city. The tower will also feature a podium integrating the heritage brick facade from the building located at 1162 Saint-Antoine Street West.
In common with its predecessor, Tour des Canadiens 2 will offer owners access to the Montreal Canadiens, from priority access to game tickets to private viewing of Canadiens practice sessions and Habs store discounts. The project will also be directly connected to Montreal’s largest intermodal transit hub and to the RESO Underground City subterranean pedestrian networks, through an overhead passerelle crossing Saint-Antoine Street. This specially designed glass bridge will give residents year-round covered access to the Bell Centre, RESO and the STM metro network. Huma Design will once again oversee the interior design of the 438 condominium apartments and multitude of common spaces.
The 37-story building, designed by Page + Steele / IBI Group Architects in conjunction with BLT Architectes, will be located at the corner of Jean-d’Estrées and St. Antoine Street West, within Cadillac Fairview’s $2 billion development that, when completed, will change the face of downtown Montreal. The project will be the newest addition to Quad Windsor, a new downtown neighbourhood that includes office, residential and retail uses totalling nearly five million square feet.
“We are excited about this next phase of Quad Windsor, featuring Windsor Station, Tour Deloitte and Tour des Canadiens. Quad Windsor will be more than just a neighbourhood. As a natural extension of Montreal’s downtown, and rooted in the city’s heritage, it will offer residents and workers the best quality living and working environment possible. The chance to live in a condominium building bearing the name of the greatest hockey franchise in the history of the NHL, in Montreal’s vibrant and exciting new neighbourhood, is without doubt an exceptional opportunity,” said Brian Salpeter, Senior Vice President, Development, Eastern Canada, Cadillac Fairview.
