Prime Mixed-Use Downtown Tower

Composed of a 10-storey commercial podium supporting a residential tower of 24 floors, the mixed-use building was constructed over 5 floors of underground parking. The tower is directly connected to the Square Victoria metro station and the Montreal underground city (RÉSO). The property offers several exterior gardens, private terraces for the office floors, and an outdoor area with a swimming pool on the first residential level.

Integrated into the City Centre Network

The work was carried out at the intersection of busy streets (De La Gauchetière, Beaver-Hall and Viger), on a confined site, surrounded by adjacent buildings. Mass and detailed rock excavations were undertaken, as well as the creation of an underground gallery to provide access to the Montreal metro (subway). The structure is made of reinforced concrete and curtain walls. Excavation work also included support and stabilization of a historic facade which was integrated into the project.
