Overview

With conference rooms, a futuristic hotel lobby, a 40-foot waterfall flowing from the mezzanine, this upscale residential / hotel project merges a variety of uses with elegance:
• 130 rooms and 50 residential condos
• 4 underground parking floors
• 3 storeys of commercial facilities
• 22 floors reserved for hotel rooms and private condos
The construction of this building presented particular challenges due to its unique architecture and its constraining environment:
• Concept of staircase terraces involving complex sealing elements;
• Unusual external envelope, comprising seven different envelope systems;
• Design of slabs from 225 to 250 mm thick with systematic removal of the edge beams;
• Excavation over 12 meters deep, directly on René-Lévesque Boulevard and Rue de la Montagne, requiring the construction of a Berlin wall;
• 7-meter high arch in the lobby of the hotel.
