The Montreal Canadiens ice hockey club is the oldest professional hockey franchise in the world, and one of the four founding teams of the National Hockey League (NHL). A consortium, made up of Cadillac Fairview Corporation Limited, Canderel, the Fonds immobilier de solidarité FTQ and the Club de hockey Canadien have partnered to build the ultimate residential address in the city: the Tour des Canadiens.
The building, designed by architects Cardinal Hardy and Martin Marcotte/Beinhaker, will be located in the heart of downtown Montreal. With 48-storeys, and 534 units, the Tour des Canadiens will become Montreal’s tallest residential building and an important landmark.
The $175-million project will stand on an elevated platform that will include indoor parking. Moreover, the Tour des Canadiens will offer direct covered access to Montreal’s largest intermodal transit hub and downtown’s sprawling underground city.
Geoff Molson, Owner, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Club de hockey Canadien is excited about the prospect of bringing to life the Montreal Canadiens trademark through an address that will provide its residents privileged access to the Bell Centre, so that they are truly at the heart of the action. “The Tour des Canadiens will offer sports and entertainment facilities that live up to the vision behind the design, including a sports bar which will provide its clients with a unique and unparalleled experience. Today’s announcement is the beginning of a new chapter in the history of the Montreal Canadiens. I am extremely pleased to see this opportunity come to fruition and impatient to see the Tour des Canadiens come to life,” said Mr. Molson.
Daniel Peritz, Senior Vice President at Canderel, added: “The Tour des Canadiens is much more than just a prestigious address. It embodies a unique concept in which sports and entertainment are an integral part of everyday life. It will be the only residential address to provide direct access to the Bell Centre and its prestigious sports events, as well as to the best in international entertainment and shows. Our condo purchasers can buy with confidence given the exceptional reputation of the development team.”
