Tour Des Canadiens 2


 

 

 
 

 

The tower is part of the expansive 15-year, $2-billion Quad Windsor construction project underway around the Bell Centre.

In keeping with the hockey franchise partnership, the 37-storey sculpted glass tower with 438 condo units will take its inspiration from ice, with illuminated “icicle tips” glowing in the night skyline.

The tower, to be located on the south side of the Bell Centre, on what is now a grim St-Antoine St., will be connected to the Bell Centre and the transit hub that is Windsor Station by a raised glass pedestrian walkway.

And just as for Phase 1, residents will enjoy priority bookings for Canadiens tickets and access to training sessions, among other privileges.

The consortium developing the project — Cadillac Fairview, Canderel, the Fonds immobilier de solidarité FTQ and the Club de hockey Canadien — is also hoping for a repeat of the success of Phase 1. Launched in 2012, the project sold out in three months, a record in Montreal, Peritz said, calling the structure “the most iconic residential address in our fair city.”

Tour 1 will be delivered in early spring, Peritz said.

The investment in Phase 2 is $150 million.

Prices will range from under $200,000 per unit to over $1 million, and amenities will include a terrace and pool, a Habs-inspired fitness room, game room, wine bar and cellar, and private sky lounge for residents and their guests. A sales centre is to open within weeks.

Peritz said he was confident the location, team and quality of the units, “but most importantly, the privileges that will be offered by the greatest hockey franchise in history,” will afford the same level of enthusiasm as the first tower.

Peritz’s joke about traffic woes and the construction boom highlights the transformation of vast swaths of the southern edge of downtown Montreal. Condos and commercial buildings are rising at unprecedented rates in Quad Windsor as well as adjacent Griffintown.

Look at St-Antoine St., Peritz said, asked about challenges to the project from an urban planning point of view.

“It’s not easy to deal with what’s there. The challenges were how to make it a more human experience, how to make it a place where people will want to live. How do we take advantage of the proximity to all of the activity that is the Bell Centre?

“How do we extend that to this side of St-Antoine, and obviously the bridge (joining the new tower and the Bell Centre) is big part of that.”

Both Peritz and Brian Salpeter, senior vice-president of development for Cadillac Fairview, said the project respects current zoning on density and heights.

The city has been looking at increasing heights from 120 to 220 metres in current studies as part of the urban plan for the Quartier des gares. “If there is zoning that allows higher, we will look at that,” Salpeter said.

The southern sections of the city were isolated in the past, Peritz said, but Montreal is growing and “we’re starting to see cohesion.”

Salpeter agreed: “You’re already seeing the connection.

“In 2006, there was nothing around the Bell Centre. It was Cadillac Fairview’s vision to assemble the lands. We’re continuing our vision, which is Quad Windsor, which does extend Montreal — at the same time we’ve seen Griffintown develop.”

Geoff Molson, owner, president and CEO, Club de hockey Canadien, is also motivated to bring people to the once desolate area.

The Molsons invested in the first condo tower because they wanted a sports bar, he said.

It’s not just the hockey team involved, he explained, adding the family made a significant investment in building the Bell Centre — then the Molson Centre — 20 years ago.

“Here we are, 20 years later — it’s fantastic to see a couple of billion dollars of investments around us.

“We wanted to ensure that this residential development fit perfectly with the Bell Centre’s current vocation and remained in harmony with its iconic surroundings.

“Look around you — it’s remarkable, and the economic impact is major.’’

The building will be designed by Page + Steele/IBI Group Architects in conjunction with BLT Architectes, with Huma Design in charge of interiors, as in the first condo tower.

Mansoor Kazerouni, director of IBI Group, listed the attributes of the building: a four-storey atrium grounding the tower, a plaza, the bridge access, and the base of the tower to integrate a heritage building currently on St-Antoine and Jean d’Estrées Sts. “It follows the rhythm of the heritage facade without trying to mimic it,’’ Kazerouni said.

Slender skewed and tapered forms are inspired by icicles and glaciers to create a dramatic silhouette on the skyline, with different profiles depending on where you view it from, he said, to create a dynamic and ever-changing profile of the skyline.

Quad Windsor is to cover 5-million square feet with nine new buildings, including Phase 1 of the Tour des Canadiens and the Deloitte office tower, which is to be inaugurated Friday. 

Salpeter would not say what’s next: “What we’ve created is an expectation of great things and we’ve already started to deliver.”

A LANDMARK RESIDENCE

Designed by architects Cardinal Hardy and Martin Marcotte/Beinhaker, Tour Des Canadiens will be located at the Bell Centre, at the corner of rue de la Montagne and l’Avenue des Canadiens, in the heart of downtown Montreal. Tour des Canadiens’ unique design will reflect the topography of its location. Straddling the natural ridge between the mountain and the river, Tour des Canadiens will become Montreal’s tallest residential building and an unmistakable visual landmark.

With its sleek and modern design, Tour Des Canadiens will dominate the skyline with a dramatic architectural presence and panoramic 360° views. This iconic structure gives the illusion of two towers perched upon a dramatic podium. The taller charcoal tower stands in striking contrast to the lighter grey tower. This duality is representative of the Montreal landscape – the soaring mountains juxtaposed with the river. The architecture makes a statement about the division of Montreal into Upper and Lower, expressing Montreal’s physical and cultural diversity. The building will stand on an elevated platform that will include indoor parking, and a lightbox featuring Montreal and its lifestyle will be encased.

Moreover, Tour des Canadiens will be the only residential building to offer direct covered access to Montreal’s largest intermodal transit hub and downtown’s sprawling Underground City. Some of the building’s amenities include a stunning rooftop pool and the world’s finest sports bar! This is where hockey lives in Montreal, where legendary moments are enshrined forever. This is an opportunity unsurpassed in history!

 

A SUPERB DOWNTOWN LOCATION

Home to hockey’s greatest franchise, the Montreal Canadiens, the Bell Centre is located in the heart of the city, surrounded by the best shopping, dining, galleries, boutiques and nightlife.
