The Tour des Canadiens or Canadians Tower is the first of a multi-phase condominium tower development located in the immediate vicinity of the Bell Center, home of the famouns NHL team, the Montreal Canadians. The tower was named after the team and was even honoured with its badge which it proudly displays at its very top for all to see.

The Tour des Canadiens was completed in the second half of 2016. Its address is 1288 Ave. Des Canadiens. Aside from its name and location next to the Bell Center, the Tour des Canadiens boasts some impressive facilities. It has a games room with a pool table and Hockey foosball tables, a dry and wet sauna, an outdoor pool with common area terrace and BBQs and also what is probably the best gym that can be found in any building in the city.

The Tour des Canadiens is well located. The whole area is being rapidly developed around a commercial construction (planned) called the Windsor Quad which will bring thousands of jobs to the building's immediate vicinity. It is a 5 minute walk from St Catherine street, Montreal's main shopping street, and from the subway's green line. However it is located just one block away from Lucien Lallier subway station on the orange line which offers easy access to the Old Port and Le Plateau in the Downtown east area.

The units come in several layouts that would be much too long to describe in detail so you may request more information on plans and layouts. However whilst some units are cleary well designed, others are quite poorly designed for $700 a square foot. Worthy of note is that nearly all the units have impressive views of the South East and South west of the city.

PROS: Some clever design work for the units and the Canadians' namesake will always be a source of attraction for this builing. It is also Air B&B friendly for those who would purchase as an investment.

CONS: Questionable finishings and floorplans, only one pool and outdoor at that which in Montreal and in a building with over 500 residences, is a poor effort. The Air B&B issue has drawn a lot of bad press but obviously only from those who didn't purchase for that purpose.
