Site of the former Viger hotel and station - Project proposal submitted to Borough of Ville-Marie

    MONTREAL, June 4 /CNW Telbec/ - Today, Viger DMC International submitted
a master plan, for study, to the Borough of Ville-Marie for the redevelopment
of the former Viger hotel and station site. The project calls for the
revitalization of two city blocks plus the former hotel and railway station
building located between Berri and Saint-Christophe streets and Saint-Antoine
and Notre-Dame streets. As a part of this proposal, Viger DMC International
has initiated a consultation and discussion process on one of the most
exciting new projects in Montreal.
    "Our project highlights the tourism, commercial, and residential vocation
of this unique site. Its historical value and exceptional location at the
eastern gateway to Old Montreal will no doubt make it a popular urban
destination. The plan to breathe new life into the former Viger hotel and
station site is an exciting one in many respects, particularly since it
involves a well-recognized Montreal landmark. It is also a key economic lever
for Old Montreal and the city at large," explained Viger DMC International
President and CEO, Mr. Phil O'Brien.
    Local residents are invited to come and discuss the project with its
developer and urban planning advisors during a three-day open house this June
16, 18, and 19. This will be an opportunity to learn more about the Viger DMC
International proposal.
    "The proposal we have submitted takes into account the needs that local
residents and others have expressed for locally accessible services and
parking. We want the project to proceed in close cooperation with area
residents. We will keep them regularly informed throughout each stage of
development and hope they will voice their opinions. We think it is very
important to keep the channels of communication and dialogue open and free so
everyone benefits," added Mr. Cameron Charlebois, General Manager of Viger DMC

    The project follows the acquisition in May 2006 of the former Viger hotel
and station building and adjacent land by Viger Limited Partnership, a
consortium of three companies: Homburg Invest Inc. based in Halifax, Telemedia
Entreprises Inc., Montreal, and SNS Property Finance based in Hoevelaken,

    Viger DMC International
    Viger DMC International is a management company mandated by Viger Limited
Partnership to ensure project development.
