MONTREAL | Sixty Hotel | 24 FLOORS

The Montreal based garment company has bought a rather unimpressive looking 17 storey hotel at the corner of Rene-Levesque and Bleury and is in the process of retrofitting it and adding 13 floors on top. I'd reckon the height to be at 100 metres.











My photos:






The concrete shoe box on the left is the current building.


As of today, the building is currently being gutted is prep work to expand the tower from 17 to 30 floors is under way.

If an autistic child put 3 blocks together, this is what it would look like. The extension (floor 17 to 30) makes absolutely no sense in blending with the existing buildings and with the neighborhood. Where are we? Miami?

actually, this is looking awesome. i'm not loving the point zero branding on the building, but otherwise love the twin ideas of residential on that part of rene-levesque and rehabbing that building into an hotel. the design - which i find surprisingly understated for such a blingy operation - is way better than initial renderings.

I'm all torn up about this one. I don't really approve of it, but I think it is a marked improvement over what's currently there. I'm also keen to see it as part of a larger urban ensemble for the sector, along with the upcoming 400 Dowd, Marriott, Southam II and quite possibly the SNC expansion.


By the way, welcome to the forum Pillars!

It certainly looks different; although, it's far from offensive.

And technically, this isn't "3 blocks." Only the original building is, which is now, I suppose, an exaggerated podium.

The question is, would it look better if the tower addition was taller, like 30, 40 floors (if that were possible)?

Je trouve le projet unique et intéressant. L'apparence est ''agréablement hétéroclite''.

En effet, c'est peu banal comme édifice. Un peu étrange, voire bizarre, mais certainement moins ennuyant qu'un vulgaire bloc. J'aimais bien également les premières évocations avec l'édifice illuminé en rouge.

Peut-être qu'avec un bon "recladding" sur la partie du bas ils arriveront à faire quelque chose d'un peu plus harmonieux?

L'ajout détonne, c'est vrai, mais le tout aura un petit quelque chose de japonais, me semble-t-il, dans l'empilement des morceaux et des époques. Il y avait un autre projet qui tentait ça près de la rue Sherbrooke, en plus réussi. J'ai oublié le nom mais on n'en entend plus parler, je crois. Dommage.

Quelqu'un sait d'où vient ce nom de point zéro ? Est-ce une traduction maladroite de ground zero ? (ce qui serait d'un goût douteux...) On n'est pas fort, fort sur les noms ces derniers temps à Montréal : Altitude, Altoria, point zéro, Tour du Canadien...

Point Zero est le nom de la compagnie qui construit l'édifice. Une compagnie Montrealaise, elle est mieux connue comme détaillant de vêtement.



L'edifice a bureau adjacent a ce projet est, je crois, leur siège social.

Merci Rico,

J'avais lu trop vite les premiers messages. On aurait donc une méga-pub pour une compagnie de vêtements... Bof, pourquoi pas. Je vais pas les blâmer d'avoir de l'ambition.

Ça étonne un peu plus quand c'est pour un immeuble en partie voué à être habité. Qui veut habiter une marque et un logo ?

Southam II...Is there a thread for that yet or is it under another name?

But Southam II and 400 Dowd are 2 different projects, next door to one another. Southam II is very advanced from what I can tell from the outside. Work is just starting on 400 Dowd. As to Mosaic Southam which is the new building built next door to the old Southam building (now called Southam II even though if I recall, originally the old building was to be renovated first and Mosaic was to be built after) has been completed a few years ago.

^ Thanks, the numbering threw me off.

These are all by the same developer, right?

Mosaique Southam = Southam I (aka the cheap looking one)
Southam Lofts = Southam II
400 Dowd = Southam III

Mosaique Southam was developped by Groupe Pacific which was heavily hit by the housing crisis in the US has they are heavy on property in Florida. They built this phase heavy on the cheap. This the new building on de la Gauchetiere.

The project was taken over by Groupe Olymbec which started Southam Lofts which is the actual reconversion of the former Southam building on Bleury.

400 Dowd is also by Groupe Olymbec. I don't think you can really call it Southam III because I don't think they will be sharing services.
