The Le Concorde building is a high-end condominium tower in Downtown Montreal built in 2007 next to the city's entertainment district and near McGill University.

Located at 441 President Kennedy Avenue, it is in a highly sought after location. Its relative small size (only 125 units) makes for a very quiet a peaceful environment.

Le Concorde is one of the Quartier des Spectacles most sought-after addresses. Aside from its standing and quality finishings, it comes with several locational advantages such as proximity to both the Place des Arts and McGill subway stations which offer access to both ends of the underground city. It is also in an area of the city with three grocery stores, one bio store, and one high-end produce store all within 5 minutes walk or less. It is also a few minutes walk from the city's only 24/7 pharmacy (chemist) which can be very convenient.

The building has a 24/7 doorman or concierge, a gym, and excellent sound proofing. Indoor parking is also available. The units have very different layouts. The 2nd to the 9th floor were originally designed as open plan Lofts but over time, the owners have partially or totally closed off the bedrooms. The 10th to the 16th floor were condo designs with only 6 units per floor. Finally the 'Penthouse' level on the last three floors have only 4 units per floor. These are more high-end and come with higher ceilings (10ft) than the lower units as well as gas fireplaces.

PROS: Le Concorde has aged much better than many of its neighbouring buildings and its value per square foot is always increasing. It is in one of the most convenient and entertainment orientated areas in Downtown Montreal and is very convenient in winter thanks to its easy access to the underground city. The units have large windows, are bright and well insulated.

CONS: Le Concorde is a service orientated building which comes at a high cost for a comparatively small building. As a result it has high condo fees which make it more interesting as a purchase to live in rather than to buy-to-let.
