High-Rise Condo in Montreal
The Tour des Canadiens is a striking landmark in the centre of Montreal.
The historic project development of being the first and only sports and entertainment condominium in the country was well-thought-out and developed by the collaboration of land developer experts in the country: Club De Hockey Canadien, Canderel Group, Cadillac Fairview Corporation, and Fonds de Solidarité FTQ. This ambitious project is located at 1288 Ave des Canadiens de Montréal, Montréal, QC, and was completed in 2015.
The Tour des Canadiens is a 50-story tower with 552 well-designed residences ranging in size from two to three bedrooms. Cardinal Hardy Beinhaker Architectes handled the architectural component of this project, while Humà Design + Architecture curated the interior design, which set new standards with superb interior finishes and vast layouts.
Located in the city’s Ville-Marie district is the Tour des Canadiens. Ville-Marie is the name of a borough in the centre of Montreal, Quebec. The borough is named after Fort Ville-Marie, the French settlement that would later become Montreal, which was located within the present-day borough. Daily duties can be completed without the use of a car thanks to an exceptional walking score of 96 out of 100. This neighbourhood is brimming with culture, history, shops, modern buildings, and green spaces—the ideal mix of old and new. For classical music fans, Maison Symphonique, an acoustic marvel that serves as a concert hall for the Montréal Symphony Orchestra and the Orchestre Métropolitain de Montréal, is located in this neighbourhood. This vibrant neighbourhood has something for everyone.
This location is ideal for commuters as it is a transit-oriented area with several public transportation options. There are several subway stations available for public use in the area, such as Guy-Concordia, Lucien-L’Allier, and Peel, all of which are less than an 8-minute drive away. There are also notable bus stops nearby that are a few minutes away. Moreover, residents who need to catch a plane for a far-distance trip can reach Montréal-Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport, which is only a 14-minute drive away.
Due to the site’s prominent location in Montréal, people have easy access to a variety of educational alternatives. Families can choose from a variety of public and private schools in the area, including Primary School Jean-Baptiste-Meilleur, Lasalle Community Comprehensive High School, and MIND High School. Concordia University and McGill University, among others, are less than an 8-minute drive away and offer quality education for post-secondary students, making this development an excellent off-campus living alternative.

The Canadiens, founded in 1909, are the longest continually functioning professional ice hockey team and the only extant NHL club to predate the formation of the NHL, as well as one of the oldest North American sports teams. The team is one of the “Original Six,” a term used to describe the teams that comprised the NHL from 1942 until its expansion in 1967. Following the departure of the rival Quebec Nordiques in 1995 and the move of the Montreal Expos to Washington, D.C., the Montreal Expos became the Washington Capitals. In 2004, the Canadiens were the only club from one of Canada’s and the United States’ four major sports leagues to be headquartered in the province of Quebec.
Cadillac Fairview Corporation, one of Canada’s most significant developers, is an internationally focused owner, operator, investor, and developer of best-in-class real estate in retail, commercial, residential, industrial, and mixed-use asset classes. Cadillac Fairview’s story began more than 60 years ago in Toronto, when three friends, Eph Diamond, Joseph Berman, and Jack Kamin, started their own construction company. While they couldn’t agree on a name for their new company at first, the three finally found inspiration in Kamin’s car, a Cadillac, which became the company’s namesake.
