Fancy new Montreal sky bridge links with condos
September 24, 2018
An impressive new pedway will be built above St. Antoine Street in Montreal, providing a sheltered pedestrian walkway linking the Quad Windsor area to Montreal’s extensive 32-kilometre underground street network—and a selection of new condominium towers and townhouses reflective of a record-setting housing market.
Cadillac Fairview, Canderel, the Fonds immobilier de solidarité FTQ and the Montreal Canadiens hockey club are building the Quad Windsor Skybridge. More than 200 feet long and 20 feet above the ground, the Skybridge will be made of steel tube aluminum panels and insulated glazed units, all supported by concrete columns. It is expected to open next summer.
While it may delight shoppers and strollers, the bridge will also serve as threshold to Canderel’s Tours des Canadiens residential towers. TDC3, the latest of the three towers to be built, will feature 574 condominiums and a selection of luxury townhomes. Pre-sales of penthouses at TDC3 start from $792,990 while luxury townhomes are offered from $799,990, according to Canderel.
Montreal is currently in the midst of a housing mini-boom. In August, 3,244 homes were sold, up 8 per cent from August 2017—a new sales record for the month, according to the Greater Montreal Real Estate Board. August marked the 41st consecutive month in which residential sales increased in the Montreal area.
