Members of the development team behind Tour des Canadiens and Tour des Canadiens 2—Cadillac Fairview, Canderel, and the Club de hockey Canadien—will be building a third phase of one of Montréal’s largest residential projects. Inspired by one of the most successful franchises in the history of Canadian professional sport, the 55-storey tower is scheduled to be completed in 2021 and will offer 567 new housing units. The new project marks another important milestone for Quad Windsor, the new high-rise district that’s quickly emerging around Montréal’s Bell Centre.
Tour des Canadiens 3
Located adjacent to the earlier phases at rue de la Montagne and Saint-Antoine Street West, Tour des Canadiens 3 will offer new amenities that give it a distinct identity from the other phases. The 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 potential views of 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.
Concept rendering of proposed Quad Windsor district
As with the first two phases, the tower is designed by the Canadian architectural group of Page + Steele / IBI Group Architects, in partnership with Béïque Legault Thuot Architectes (BLTA). The building’s architecture will be integrated with the surrounding area, creating aesthetic continuity with the earlier phases. The new inner courtyard and the exterior cladding of sculpted glass in slender, skewed and tapered shapes inspired by icicles.
The new pedestrian footbridge
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.
