QMD starts construction on new 44-storey Montreal tower
By On-Site StaffConstruction
Work is underway on a new 44-storey residential tower across the street from the Bell Centre in downtown Montreal.
Known as Soltice Montreal, the upscale 339-unit development on Rue de la Montagne is being built by Les Entreprises QMD Inc. The Montreal-based contractor is also part of the consortium heading development. Les Habitations Sylvain Ménard Inc., Harden, Kastello Immobilier Inc. and Gestion S.J.-S.F. Inc. are the other key members of the project team.
The QMD-Ménard consortium held a groundbreaking for the new tower Sept. 10 to officially kick off the construction phase of the project.
The new building was designed by Montreal-based NEUF architect(e)s. Rising out of a red brick base, most of the tower’s exterior will consist of tapered glass. Along with the 339 residential units, the building will include an indoor pool, fitness centre, owner’s lounge and wine cellar.
QMD-Ménard has not released the cost of the project, but noted Sept. 10 it has already sold $100 million worth of units for the new development.
Construction on the project is expected to last about three years and employ about 400 on-site workers.
Crews are scheduled to complete the job by summer 2022.
