Soon to join fellow twin-tower development, YUL, in what appears to be a streak of twin-tower condo projects currently on the rise in downtown Montreal, progress has been moving along nicely at the site of the Roccabella, a 40-storey, Béïque, Legault, Thuot Architects-designed condo development by MC Finance.

Recent photos on our Forum reveal that as Phase One, known as The Drummond Tower, neared completion over the summer, work began on the construction of Phase Two, which will be known as the De La Montagne Tower. Each tower has been named as a reference to their geographic positions and views.

Comprised of two twin towers, 40 storeys apiece and set atop a common podium, Roccabella will bring 596 units online upon its completion in 2017. The large three-storey podium will contain many of the building's amenity spaces, including a fitness centre and swimming pool, and it will be capped with outdoor terrace spaces for summer months.

Phase Two will continue with the signature grey and blue look of Phase One, the identical twin towers to bring more than 800 new residents to the neighbourhood, just steps from transit, and in the midst of many of the city's best entertainment options.

Once complete, Roccabella will be at the heart of the action, part of the ongoing rise and rebirth of Canada's First Metropolis. A welcome addition to downtown Montreal, the new development will add to the lively urban character that has defined the city for more than a century. 

SkyriseCities will be sure to return to this project as progress continues. For more information, check out the associated Database file and Forum thread, and as always, feel free to join the conversation in the comments section below.
