The site, owned by the James Bay Cree since 1995, has witnessed the revitalization of the neighbourhood and will reflect the Cree’s desire to participate in community development.

“We are extremely proud to work on this project with Cogir Real Estate, and for our communities to participate in creating benefits for their members and for future generations.” said Derrick Neeposh, President of the Cree Regional Economic Enterprises Company CREECO).

The 25-storey project will include 264 rental apartments, and 171 condominiums for sale. The name of the project, Odea, is based on the Cree word “ode”, meaning canoe, which explains the subtle and stylized symbol of the canoe to be featured in the architecture. 

“I am proud to see my nation’s contribution to the Montreal skyline with an innovative and forward-thinking project that will not only showcase the history of the Cree nation, but more importantly will also create space for indigenous organizations and entities. The Odea Montreal project is the first of its kind and will be an economic driving force with endless opportunities for additional investment” said Mandy Gull, Grand Chief, Cree Nation Government.

The future occupants will be surrounded by bold and functional common spaces, including an artist’s studio in collaboration with the Darling Foundry art complex, green spaces, two rooftop pools, and a sky lounge.
