The site of the former Molson Brewery in Montreal will give the developing neighborhood an aspect that combines heritage and modernity.
The consortium formed by Montoni, Groupe Sélection and Fonds immobilier de Solidarité FTQ unveiled the blueprint for the 6-million-square-foot redevelopment project on Wednesday.
The first phase of the project concerns the enhancement and heritage of Îlot des Voltigeurs, the oldest part of the site, which will see the clock, the Molson mark and the preserved chimney form part of the project.
After the Ilot des Voltigeurs, the dismantling of the silos should begin soon, but the promoters that make up the consortium have specified that two silos, the oldest dating back to 1973, will be kept and strengthened in the development project.
“We are truly proud to lay the groundwork for this major project today, which is excellent news for Montreal and will contribute to its vitality,” said Norman Bellanger, President and CEO of Fonds immobilier de Solidarité FTQ.
“We will ensure that this project is exemplary and that it will incorporate the unique characteristics of Montreal and Molson’s rich history,” said Real Poquelin, Founding President and CEO of Groupe Sélection.
“It is an honor for us to be part of the creation of a new neighborhood that honors the legacy and history of the former Molson Brewery,” added Dario Montoni, President of Montoni.
