Four Seasons’ sumptuous hotel and residential project in downtown Montreal has already caught the eye of real-estate-design magazine Luxe, even gracing its latest cover. Lemay is behind the high-end complex’s architecture, in consortium with Sid Lee.
It’s no wonder Luxe noticed: this new Four Seasons will be nothing less than spectacular. Expected in late 2018 and driven by Quebec’s Carbonleo, the project will be located at the heart of Montreal’s chic Golden Square Mile, on De La Montagne Street. Boasting solid construction, noble materials and lavish details, it will host 170 guestrooms and 18 ultra-luxury private residences.
In addition to its elegance and intelligent design, the Four Seasons will include an indoor pool, a gym, an upscale spa, several renowned gastronomic restaurants and a 6,000-sq-ft ballroom that opens onto a large terrasse with stunning views. Its private residences, located on the 14th floor, are particularly exclusive, with a starting sale price of $3.5 million.
La Presse’s Maxime Bergeron reports that buyer interest is stronger than expected – with three residences already sold – despite the development’s website not yet being online, and the purchase of luxury condos in Montreal being very rare in general.
This is a return for Four Seasons, which left the city in 1994 in the wake of a recession. Today’s Montreal, turning 375th anniversary this year, boasts a lively culture and economy. It also draws a new kind of clientele, with its countless attractions; and with Four Seasons soon to be one of them, the city’s trendsetter status is unquestionable.
