Construction of Solstice Montréal has officially started. Designed by award-winning NEUF architect(e)s, the 44-storey, 339-unit development will be located on the prestigious de la Montagne Street, south of René-Lévesque.
“This official groundbreaking constitutes the first step of building an ambitious and memorable project in the heart of a unique and remarkable city,” said Michel Guilbault, vice-president of development of the QMD-Ménard Consortium.
According to the press release Solstice Montréal will have a distinctive contemporary design – its red brick base, inspired by and incorporated within the fabric of Montréal’s urban heritage, will be dominated by a tapered glass tower elegantly surmounted by a unique architectural crown overlooking the St. Lawrence River.
Solstice Montréal will feature communal living areas infused with the finesse of the city’s traditional luxury residences. Three major art pieces will be featured by world-renowned artists Pascale Girardin, Vanessa Harden and David Gardener.
“Not only are we revitalizing a piece of land, but [we are also] building something utterly beautiful and as unique as a fingerprint,” said Benjamin Sternthal, development manager of Solstice Montréal and president and founder of Kodem.
QMD-Ménard Consortium also announced that $100million worth of units has been sold. Furthermore, by the end of the month, prestigious units and Penthouse Collection, that occupy the 32nd floor upward will be launched.
