Attn Habs fans: Tours des Canadiens is officially under construction

Screen shot 2013-06-07 at 10.38.13 AMThe Montreal Canadiens may be out of the playoffs, but Habs fans still have something to celebrate as construction has officially begun on Tours des Canadiens.

The consortium of The Cadillac Fairview Corporation Limited, Canderel, the Fonds immobilier de solidarite FTQ, and the Club de hockey Canadien held the development’s official groundbreaking on June 6th.

Tour des Canadiens Condominiums had record-breaking sales in the Montreal real estate market, only six months after opening its sales office it has become the fastest selling project in the city’s history.

The condo is 99 per cent sold out and only two penthouses with unobstructed views of the city remain.

Located next to the Bell Centre, the building will feature many ties to Montreal’s beloved team, including underground access to the arena.

At the groundbreaking, the Montreal Canadiens organization revealed plans for the new Centennial Plaza which will be relocated between Windsor Station and the Bell Centre, as the condo will stand where the current plaza is located.

The commemorative monuments of retired jerseys, the plaques describing past Stanley Cup wins, the monolith, the mosaic of Montreal Canadiens’ historical milestones as well as four bronze statues will be moved to the new Centennial Plaza in the Windsor Courtyard.

Located in the heart of downtown and the centre of Montreal sports fandom, Tour des Canadiens is the only residential project that offers direct access to the Bell Centre, the metro, train stations, and the Underground City.

Daniel Peritz, Mayor Applebaum, Jonathan Wener, Guy LaFleur, Yvoc Bolduc, Salvatore Iacono, and Geoff Molson  celebrate the groundbreaking.
