The lights never go out on Montreal’s Quartier des spectacles, the cultural hub of the city where events and festivals take place year-round. From the brightly lit Ferris wheel during Montreal en lumière to the silent comedy films that play to crowds throughout Just for Laughs to the free outdoor concerts offered during Jazz Fest, there’s always something going on.
Looking over the vibrant, buzzing square is Le Peterson — a curvaceous 31-storey condominium tower. Its spectacular 1,517 square foot penthouse, aptly named Place des Arts, features two bedrooms plus a den and study. The kitchen is open-concept with a large island that’s equipped for entertaining. Buyers can choose from three luxurious design packages, with materials like marble, washed wood and stainless steel.
The living and dining areas are streamlined, creating a warm and inviting space to gather in. The separated den could be used as a home office or media room. Each bedroom has its own full bathroom, featuring bathtubs and showers with glass panels, custom-made vanities and ceramic tile floors. The master bedroom includes a spacious walk-in closet and a door that leads onto a curvilinear balcony that wraps around the entire penthouse. Forget about buying tickets to any of the scheduled events at Quartier des spectacles, because you’ve got one of the best seats in the house.
