MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwired - Nov. 8, 2016) - Downtown Montreal's first sports-and-entertainment residential building, with stunning views, gorgeous amenities and adjacent to the Bell Centre, has received a prestigious award from the Quebec Construction Association, or ACQ (Association de la Construction du Québec). Voted Best Condominium Project 10 Storeys and Higher, Residential Awards, ACQ Guarantee Plans, Tour des Canadiens is the achievement of the consortium of Cadillac Fairview, Canderel, the Fonds immobilier de solidarité FTQ, and the Montreal Canadiens Hockey Club. Located in the rejuvenated and dynamic Quad Windsor area with immediate access to the city's underground transit system and network of shopping malls, its 555 units sold out quickly, beating all records for residential sales in Montreal's history.
The ACQ plays a vital role in real estate development in Quebec. Besides offering a full range of professional services to the construction industry, the organization tracks how development projects contribute to the areas they are located in and to the growth of the provincial economy. Its Construction Awards recognize the talent, spirit, commitment and excellence of companies whose projects have made a positive and lasting contribution. This year, 24 awards were presented to outstanding recipients in three categories: Provincial, Regional and Residential.
In presenting this award, the ACQ shares its assessment that the development of Tour des Canadiens was executed with extraordinary success in these areas: location, marketing, sales, construction, documentation, and collaborating with the ACQ Guarantee Plans process. It also tells purchasers that investing in TDC's 50 storeys of modern, five-star living was the right choice, and sends a strong message to potential homeowners about Phase 2 of the project, which began construction in September just a few steps away, south of Saint-Antoine Street. Besides the panoramic views, convenient location and exciting proximity to downtown, both condominiums allow owners the use of multiple beautifully designed public areas and the privilege of unique access to the Montreal Canadiens Hockey Club.
The consortium is proud to contribute to the revitalization of the city centre. Quad Windsor offers sophisticated urban living that borders on lush green spaces and is grounded in Montreal's legendary history. "Our objective is to see the historic area around the Bell Centre become a lively and successful urban neighbourhood," say the project partners. With Tour des Canadiens Phase 1 completed and Phase 2 slated for completion in 2019, they are well on their way to achieving their goal. These landmark condominiums are creating a new reality for Montreal that will enliven commerce in the downtown core and benefit the city for decades to come.
