It's official, the Montreal underground city will be getting a much-needed extension.

This extension will take the form of a beautiful modern and elevated walkway that will connect Tour des Canadiens 2 and 3 to the Deloitte Tower, the Bell Centre, and the underground network.

Although the Tour Des Canadiens are luxury condos, The Quad Windsor Skybridge will be accessible to the public.

It will be functional by providing a pedestrian link between downtown and the neighborhoods to the south, but also, adding a contemporary work of art with a modern and sleek appeal to the urban design of the area. Form and function in one!

The concept has been conceived by Ombrages lighting design and engineering firm, who also worked on iconic Montreal landmarks such as the Olympic Park Tower, Montréal Casino, Le Quai de l’Horloge, and the illumination of the Jacques-Cartier bridge.

I spend a lot of time in the underground during the winter, I'm excited to know that Montrealers will able to travel to Griffintown to Peel through the underground network.

You won't have to wait too long for the bridge to open, the walkway is officially set to open in mid-2019!
