Montreal’s latest downtown development has broken ground, as the construction of Tour des Canadiens 3 has officially launched.
The project, which will result in the city’s tallest residential building, plays an integral part in shaping Quad Windsor, and fulfilling the vision of a new mixed-use downtown core, according to Cadillac Fairview Corporation Limited.
Tour des Canadiens 3 is expected to attract 6,000 new residents to the area and 6,500 new workers within the next 10 years.
The 55-storey, 565 unit, building will be connected to the métro, RESO, commuter trains, Tour Deloitte, and Bell Centre by way of a new enclosed sky-bridge. It’s also going to have direct access to the recently announced Réseau express métropolitain, Montréal’s new $6.3 billion light rail transit network, which is expected to start service in 2021.
According to the developers, the new condo building will include a state-of-the-art fitness room, a modern games room, adaptable private party rooms, and a 55th-floor skylounge.
Additionally, at the corner of St-Antoine Street West and de la Montagne Street, Cadillac Fairview will introduce 12 townhouses located on the south side of the tower facing the City’s new 2-acre urban park.
Tour des Canadiens 3, which is a partnership between Cadillac Fairview, Canderel, and the Club de hockey Canadiens, is expected to complete construction in three years.
