When we last checked in with the grey-scale Tour des Canadiens 1 in Montreal, it had topped off and most of the exterior construction on the sports-themed condominium development was completed. The building's 552 condo units have been sold and the interiors are now completed. In fact, the first tenants have begun to move into the skyscraper, and many of the units are now appearing on Montreal's rental market.
Phase 2 of the development headed by Cadillac Fairview, Canderel, Club de hockey canadien, and Fonds immobilier de solidarité FTQ will begin construction in 2017. This second phase will also be partly owned by the Montreal Canadiens, which is a major selling point for these two-of-a-kind condos in a city with a strong sports presence.
Just some of the VIP access to the Canadiens that condo owners can enjoy include priority ticket purchasing for regular season games, viewing games from a private box or behind the team bench, and the opportunity to be invited to a Habs training session or tour of the players' dressing room. A host of other benefits make these condo developments hot with Montreal sports fans.
The second phase of the development will be designed by Page + Steele and IBI Group Architects in partnership with BLT Architects. A contrast to the darker first phase of the development, phase 2 has a lighter colour scheme. A $150 million CAD investment, it will stand 37 storeys high and house 438 housing units. The cost of the units will range from $200,000 to over $1 million for condos ranging from 320 square feet to 1,690 square feet. A sales office for these condos will be set up shortly, but time is of the essence for anyone who wishes to get in on the action as they are expected to sell out quickly; the first phase sold out within three months.
