You might be inclined to consider Montreal a dying breed, but it appears it's all just a matter of time before this city reclaims some of the legendary lustre its been so lacking in recent years. With the Hotel Mount Stephen getting a swanky makeover already in the works, as well as the massive Tour des Canadiens project being erected next to the Bell Centre, the downtown core is set to have yet another luxury building added to its skyline.

From the same developers of Quartier Dix30 on the South-Shore, and the proposed (and controversialQuinze40 in TMR, Carbonleo arereported to be adding to the $400 million total investment of the Holt Renfrew-Ogilvy mega luxury store, with a 20-storey, 250,000 sq. ft. residential tower. Plans include 50,000 sq. ft of commercial space, 75 luxury condos and a five-star hotel with a 400-person capacity ballroom.

It's been a long time since Montreal has seen such investment of this scale, and Chairman of Carbonleo, Andrew Lufty, wants this new tower to be the "epicentre" of the downtown core, where residents will have a "fully integrated lifestyle" and will give people a new place to eat, drink, and connect. Lufty is calling it a "game changer for Ste-Catherine Street", and refers to it as "Westmount Square on steroids." Just by the looks of it, it certainly will be.

The project is slated for completion by the end of 2017. Another, very expensive, birthday present for Montreal.
