A new living environment

The SDA established a customized program for buildings that goes far beyond simple real estate construction to create a mixed living environment. The building is now home to MIFI (Ministère de l’Immigration, de la Francisation et de l’intégration) offices, the future Mémoire des Montréalais museum (opening in 2021) and Le Central - a gourmet food hall with a mosaic of independent local restaurants. The location is expected to draw thousands of hungry mouths on a daily basis.

Eco-friendly architecture

This 9-floor green building won the Projet Vert award and is awaiting LEED certification. It is spanned by a spectacular diagonal shape that resembles the Place des festivals. The facade is resolutely modern, but also integrates aspects of classical architecture.
