The acclaimed residential project inspired by the legendary hockey team adds a distinct third phase of Tour des Canadiens, centrepiece of the Quad Windsor district
MONTRÉAL, Oct. 18, 2017 /CNW Telbec/ - Members of the team behind the success of Tour des Canadiens and Tour des Canadiens 2—Cadillac Fairview, Canderel and the Club de hockey Canadien—will be building a third phase of Montréal's most acclaimed and successful residential projects. Inspired by one of the greatest franchises in the history of professional sport, the new high-rise tower will be completed in 2021 and will offer 567 new housing units featuring a refined urban style. This marks another important milestone for Quad Windsor, the new vibrant downtown district in Montréal that is centred on commerce, entertainment, multi-modal transit and high quality residences that is charged with the energy of the Montréal Canadiens at the Bell Centre.
The new Tour des Canadiens 3 (TDC3), located at rue de la Montagne and Saint-Antoine Street West, will offer unparalleled amenities that give it a distinct identity from the other phases. The distinctive common areas and accessible services include a state-of-the-art fitness room, a modern games room, adaptable private party rooms and a breath-taking 55th-floor skylounge. In addition, "The Club" at TDC3 will feature a Mediterranean inspired indoor pool and outdoor terrace, with views overlooking the new 2-acre city park proposed at Quad Windsor. The building will also offer a storage area enabling deliveries to be received without constraints for online purchases and grocery delivery – a rarity in Montréal condominiums.
Its luxurious design, with a boutique hotel feel, will include access to incomparable common areas, among them a unique ground level café spilling onto the outdoor Pocket Park, providing a true new urban oasis to the residents of the project. Outstanding facilities will rival those to be found at the most sought after hotels worldwide with an urban wi-fi lounge where people will want to linger, work or simply relax. Borrowing from the latest European design trends that encourage collaboration and conversation, these innovative and welcoming common spaces, designed by the Montréal firm CAMDI, will energize the community. With its impressive boutique hotel-style two-storey lobby, its spiral staircase, marble counter and majestic fireplace, the design of this venue exudes a style that is both warm and glamorous.
A signature architectural complex in the heart of a vibrant district
Designed once again by the renowned Canadian architectural group of Page + Steele / IBI Group Architects, jointly with Béïque Legault Thuot Architectes (BLTA), the building's architecture will be integrated with the surrounding area. The new inner courtyard and the exterior cladding of sculpted glass in slender, skewed and tapered shapes inspired by icicles favour this harmonious integration. The building's alignment allows for full enjoyment of the city, revealing the splendour of the St. Lawrence River, the energy of the downtown area and the colours of Mount Royal.
The construction of a pedestrian bridge, a new visual and architectural landmark in the area, will provide a crossing above Saint-Antoine Street from a podium overlooking the entire district, connecting TDC3 to Tour Deloitte, Windsor Station, the Bell Centre and Montréal's underground network.
"TDC3, with its architecture, unique features and unparalleled location, is at the heart of Quad Windsor, and is another important milestone in our journey to create a vibrant community, where people feel connected to the City and to each other," says Brian Salpeter, Senior Vice President, Development, Eastern Canada Portfolio, at Cadillac Fairview. "The importance of offering a desirable living environment focused on the needs and desires of Montréalers – including commerce, entertainment and residences - in today's fast-paced world cannot be understated. This mix, together with respect for the identity of this part of the city and its alignment with Montréal's Downtown Strategy is a true source of pride for us and for our partners."
The 55-storey tower has been designed specifically to harmonize with a lifestyle that characterizes the emerging generation. Conveniently located at the doorstep of various transportation links, TDC3 will offer easy access to the commuter rail and Via rail, to public transit including the métro and bus network and the future REM light-rail system. Major highway links as well as Montréal's extensive bicycling and underground pedestrian networks are directly accessible. TDC3 will be located mere steps away from the new Provigo grocery store, the new and unique Taverne Moderne 1909, various new retail outlets and restaurants near ÉTS, and many other conveniences, in addition to benefitting from the revitalization of Sainte-Catherine Street.
An address that reflects pride, for a unique lifestyle
TDC3 will feature 567 new units, both practical and refined, available in various configurations with one bedroom, one bedroom and boudoir, two bedrooms, two bedrooms and boudoir, three bedrooms and penthouses. These units provide smartly designed, opened living areas with outstanding views of the city. A unique feature of this third phase will include 12 townhouses located on the south side of the tower. These urban townhouses, which are a rare commodity in the area, will take advantage of the two-acre municipal park announced by the City. The park will act as a true junction between downtown and the Griffintown district, along with Old Montréal and the Old Port.
Both day and night, with the emblem of the Canadiens illuminated at the top of the building, TDC3 will serve as a beacon for Montréal and act as gateway into the city.
"We are seeing significant buyer interest in exceptional units in a dynamic real estate market like Montréal," adds Daniel Peritz, Senior Vice President, Canderel. "Remember that the original Tour des Canadiens, four years after its launch, remains the fastest-sold real estate project in the history of Montréal, while Tour des Canadiens 2 sold almost as quickly. TDC3 is already garnering significant excitement, offering amenities that rival those found at grand hotels worldwide and access to an urban lifestyle like no other."
True to the history of the Club de hockey Canadien, all the facilities will evoke the close association between the residential project and Montréal's emblematic sports team. Residents of TDC3 will thus enjoy exclusive benefits and access to the team and the Bell Centre.
"The new homeowners, just like the residents of the Tour des Canadiens and Tour des Canadiens 2, will be entitled to a special relationship with the team that is such a source of pride for us," states Geoff Molson, Owner, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Club de hockey Canadien. "They already have access to the Bell Centre for games and events at their doorstep. Experiencing the Canadiens and the Bell Centre through TDC3's exclusive access is part of the outstanding living environment we are offering."
