The Fonds immobilier de solidarité FTQ and Devimco Immobilier are partnering to execute a 34-storey condominium perched above a Montreal heritage building. Located in the city's Golden Square Mile neighbourhood, MAA Condominiums and Penthouses began construction in October, and its 300 residences are expected to be delivered at the end of 2022.

The $160 million development on Peel Street between Sherbrooke Street and De Maisonneuve Boulevard, will be built directly above the 1905-dated MAA Sports Club, which is being entirely renovated and dedicated to residents. The 45,000-square-foot completed space will contain an indoor semi-Olympic swimming pool, two training rooms, a multipurpose studio, a half-court basketball court, three squash courts, a yoga studio, a pilates studio, a spinning room, a dance studio, a spa clinic, and a bistro.

"We're proud to have this opportunity to showcase urban heritage with the MAA project and at the same time revitalize the iconic MAA Sports Club," said Marco Fontaine, Vice-President development, sales and marketing at Devimco Immobilier. "MAA's residents will be mostly professionals who want to live close to work and enjoy the neighbourhood's lively 'live, work, shop, play' environment, which includes close proximity to Parc Mont-Royal. At every step of the way, we made sure the MAA project respected the memory and spirit of this rich historic neighbourhood."

Designed by LEMAYMICHAUD Architecture, the contemporary building combines glass with a precast grid stretching the entire height of the volume. The building, which will contain studio, one- to three-bedroom units and penthouses, will also feature a terrace overlooking downtown.
