Commenting on the project Jean-Pierre LeTourneux said: “It’s a question of realising a building in an environment which is almost completed, in the heart of the Quartier des spectacles, and in front of the Adresse symphonique. It is an important responsibility. We have the obligation to do something exceptional.”

Inspired by the neighbourhood’s bubbling energy and cosmopolitan atmosphere, a textured treatment enhances the Clark façade, showcasing geometric modulations that use colourful, luminous, and crystalline materials.

Unique to Montreal, the through-building units offer views towards two horizons, east and west. On the courtyard side, one contemplates the private garden and relaxation areas. Looking towards the City, Mont Royal and the downtown core provide the backdrop to splendid views.
