April 2, 2013 by Staff Report
The Cadillac Fairview Corporation Ltd. hosted a ground breaking ceremony for Deloitte Tower April 2–the city’s first privately-owned and financed commercial office tower to be built in more than 20 years. The ceremony marked the launch of Cadillac Fairview’s $2-billion multi-year plan to redevelop a prime sector of downtown Montreal.
“Cadillac Fairview is committed to investing in the long-term future of Montreal. Over the course of the next 15 years, Cadillac Fairview plans to invest up to $2 billion to transform the area surrounding the Bell Centre, including $200 million to build Deloitte Tower, a key component in our redevelopment plan. Deloitte Tower will be recognized as a state-of-the-art, green, contemporary, collaborative workplace. Our commitment to Montreal business leaders is to establish an international reputation for Deloitte Tower,” said John Sullivan, president and chief executive officer, Cadillac Fairview.
Deloitte Tower will comprise 495,000 square feet of office space and 20,000 square feet of retail space. Typical floor size will be approximately 22,300 square feet. One of Canada’s leading professional services firms, Deloitte, will be the anchor tenant, occupying almost a third of the available space (160,000 square feet).
Located on Avenue des Canadiens-de-Montréal, the 26-storey Deloitte Tower will rise 436 feet between two Montreal landmarks, the Bell Centre and the heritage-designated Windsor Station.
