“Downtown Montréal is being transformed, with a focus on residential real estate development, and Brivia Group is pleased to be a part of this process. More than ever, Montréalers are keen to live in this district. We are targeting local, business and foreign buyers. We believe we can offer them a product that meets their expectations and specific needs. It’s a unique project, and we’ll go all out to ensure it is our best achievement so far,” said Kheng Ly, founder, president and CEO of Brivia Group.

The first tower will involve more than 500 residential units, with an additional upscale hotel arriving at a later date. Brivia Group’s project will be located between Place Phillips and Saint Alexandre streets, in the block bordered by Sainte Catherine Street and René Lévesque Boulevard.

Although Airbnb-style rentals are not prohibited, this project will welcome 750 new residents who want to live closer to their central jobs, active retirees trading their single-family home for a spacious condo, international buyers and new Canadians seeking a downtown home.

“We designed 1, Square Phillips for residents who are seeking a lively, hip experience of downtown Montréal and its entertainment district, while enjoying an intimate, private setting. Upon entering the interior garden, a true oasis in the heart of the project, you’ll be filled with a feeling of calm. Residents will have access to one of the tallest buildings in the city, affording breathtaking views of the river, the mountain and Greater Montréal. We have taken advantage of this rare opportunity to invest in an enclave with no buildings to create a peaceful environment and a garden against a magnificent backdrop,” said Anik Shooner and Jean-Pierre LeTourneux, lead architects and partners, Menkès Shooner Dagenais LeTourneux Architectes.

At 220 metres above sea level and its nine- cornered architectural geometry, according to developers, the project’s first phase will consist in building the tallest residential tower in Montréal.

Along with the transformation of Birks, The Bay and the arrival of Time Out Market, the 1, Square Phillips project will support the revitalization of Phillips Square’s historic lively residential neighbourhood.

Brivia Group is planning to begin construction in 2020, with occupation of the first phase in 2024. The condominium units will start at $295,900

“The landscape architecture of 1, Square Phillips is a world unto itself, a tribute to the history of Phillips Square while at the same time integrating the latest designs. The interior garden, which will feature a combination of bonsai and evergreens, will pay tribute to Kind Edward VII and to fashion on Sainte Catherine Street. It will have a unique signature that creates a feeling of well-being in a vibrant urban setting,” said Mr. Cormier.
