Tour des Canadiens 3 in Downtown Montreal’s $2 Billion Quad Windsor neighbourhood
Updated: Apr 5, 2021
Montreal Canadiens-inspired two-toned glass tower whose slender and tapered forms will become an iconic addition to the city skyline.
“Quad Windsor is the new pulse of downtown Montreal, a visionary and stunning new $2 billion mixed-use community that has everything from a proposed 2-acre city park, to culture, sports, dining, shopping, new office towers, residences and more”
Founded upon the unique heritage of the historic Windsor Station and designed with the transformational principles of modern urban design, Quad Windsor is set to become a vibrant and energetic district – the new downtown Montreal. With the completion of Deloitte Tower, the first phase of Tour des Canadiens, Tour des Canadiens 2 well underway, and now Tour des Canadiens 3, the trilogy will act as the Canadiens-themed centerpiece to this spectacular centre of gravity and gateway to the extended downtown core.
RAISING THE GAME
Tour des Canadiens 3 is a Montreal Canadiens-inspired two-toned glass tower whose slender and tapered forms will become an iconic addition to the city skyline. The exterior of the tower will be cladded with sleek floor-to-ceiling glazing, letting light in from all directions. At night, with the emblem of the Canadiens illuminated at the top of the building, the address will serve as a literal beacon for Montréal and a gateway into the city. Tour des Canadiens 3 has been oriented to provide unparalleled views towards the St. Lawrence River to the south and west, the mountain to the north, and the city to the north east. A direct walkway connection joins the building to Windsor Station and the Bell Centre- making for a covered connection to the entire city.
The design of the podium blends the historic nature of the neighbourhood with contemporary use of materials such as limestone, metal and glass. The urban townhomes on Rue de la Montagne will wrap the site and include a landscaped arrival to the drive isle on Torrance Street and the next tier of urban towns overlooking the park. The ground floor amenities and retail space along Rue Saint-Antoine will animate the neighbourhood and the addition of the ‘pocket park’ will make it a destination in the city.
