Montreal, March 11th 2020. In the heart of the Quartier des Spectacles, on the corner of René-Lévesque Blvd. and Hôtel de ville Ave., La Tour Fides will be built, offering 19 stories of condominiums and commercial spaces at the ground floor.
La Tour Fides will include 275 condo units, including penthouses and townhouses, blending a seven-story historic façade with a contemporary design. The project was launched by local real estate developer MTL Développement, in collaboration with architecture firm Beïque Legault Thuot Architects (BLTA).
Located at 235 René-Lévesque Blvd East, at a stone’s throw from the CHUM hospital and UQAM university, Berri-UQAM and Champ-de-Mars metro stations, residents of La Tour Fides will be able to enjoy their favourite activities in the Old Port and around the Place des Arts, from museums and cultural venues to trendy restaurants.
Contemporary Boutique Condos with a Historic Façade
The new project makes its mark by integrating the original building’s patrimonial façade, built in 1964. This amalgamation of contemporary and modern architecture is an elegant symbiosis between Montreal’s past and its future. The tower pays homage to Les Éditions Fides, the publisher who first occupied the building. Its Art Deco inspired insignia is still visible on the side of the building.
“We have great respect for the history of this building, which is why we decided to keep the original Fides insignia, as well as the historic façade. Architect Olivier Legault masterfully rose up to the challenge with masterful artistry, by highlighting the building’s modern heritage, while adding a 19-story tower that blends perfectly with the surrounding cityscape”, explains Labid Aljundi, CEO of MTL Développement.
Recently, the Ville-Marie expressway has been covered to pave the way for the CHUM, which in turn has created unprecedented demand for residential real estate in the neighbourhood.
World-Class Sports and Relaxation Facilities
La Tour Fides residents will benefit from exclusive access to a large indoor swimming pool, a state-of-the-art gym, squash and basketball courts, a sauna and hammam, a games room and a business centre. They will also have the option of receiving friends and family at one of the guest suites.
The interiors will have durable and timeless finishes, including quartz countertops, engineered wood floors and ceramic surfaces, with a choice of colors that instills a harmony and luminosity.
“We are focusing on quality, while optimizing space for comfort and luxury, while creating a sense of community”, explains Mr. Aljundi.
MTL Développement, founded in 2014, has already built a few large-scale projects. The developer is on the verge of finalizing its last project, Le Bourbon, at 1570 Sainte-Catherine E, designed by Atelier Robitaille + Thiffault and built by Magil Construction.
La Tour Fides will be officially launched in May. It’s possible to receive a one-on-one invitation to consult our exclusive plans and pre-launch condo prices by signing up to our VIP Club.
