The property is in a prime location on St. Catherine St. West, between Bishop and Crescent Streets, at the heart of Montréal. Within a 400-metre radius, or ﬁve-minute walk, there are major destinations like the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, the Bell Centre, Concordia University and the business district. It’s close to both Peel and Guy-Concordia metro stations. St. Catherine Street West is Montreal’s premier shopping destination, while Crescent Street is known for its many bars and restaurants, as well as its Formula 1 Grand Prix festivities. One block east, de la Montagne Street is positioning itself as the convergence point for luxury boutiques, with Ogilvy and Four Seasons bringing their banner to a major luxury expansion that will host Holt Renfrew and a mixed tower of ground ﬂoor businesses, a hotel and prestige condominiums. West of the property, two hubs are buzzing: the Concordia campus and its multiple buildings, and the area around Cabot Square, which has seen a resurgence in real estate projects and a return to its roots as a residential neighbourhood.
The site offers a unique redevelopment opportunity at the crossing of these different dynamics. Its shopping area is concentrated on St. Catherine Street between Robert Bourassa Boulevard and de la Montagne Street, and it is adjacent to a prestigious sector, the vitality of Crescent Street and a growing population of downtown students and residents.
