This 10-story residential rental project of 179 units was built on a large vacant lot along the Trans-Canada highway and closes the street perspective of Place de la Triade, thus reducing the sound and visual impacts of the highway and future REM.
Parallel to the neighboring hotel, the building is composed of two volumes that offer a double-height and crossing entrance hall at their junction where residents can look onto the gardens. A majestic forecourt adorned with a fountain greets the residents and visitors and offers them a tranquil and enjoyable outdoor space.
