After months of anticipation, the wait is over for prospective buyers who want to own a piece of Montreal’s highest condominium tower.

1 Square Phillips, created by the award-winning developer, Brivia Group, is launching sales on Saturday, November 9th. Set in the heart of the city, 1 Square Phillips will forever change downtown Montreal’s skyline, topping out at 61 stories just steps away from the affluent and historic Sainte-Catherine Street. With construction expected to begin in 2020, 1 Square Phillips will debut at 1201 Place Phillips in 2024.

World-renowned architecture firm Menkès Shooner Dagenais LeTourneux Architectes drew design inspiration for this contemporary 498-unit tower from the city backdrop. With consultation from the experts on high rise buildings, New York-based Hill West Architects, 1 Square Phillips reflects the modernity of the Quartier des spectacles and tranquility of the surrounding historical landmarks.

Throughout the building, future residents are met with extravagance and elegance — the lavishness of the late 19th-century was the influence behind this interior design collaboration between Alain Desgagné of the esteemed Innédesign and Sabrina Lareau of Menkès Shooner Dagenais LeTourneux Architectes. Honoring the era that made Phillips Square come alive, Desgagné and Lareau foster a sense of intimacy and serenity throughout all of 1 Square Phillips’ common areas, paying tribute to the grace and ampleness of Art Nouveau design.

On the 50th floor, the lounge and terrace command unobstructed, breathtaking views of the St. Lawrence River, Mount Royal, and urban Montreal. Residents can enjoy a series of refined comforts — presented through a series of flowing, interconnected rooms — throughout this floor, whether it be sipping a drink at the whiskey bar, conversing over the outdoor barbeques, or reading in the study room. The 2nd floor would attract the envy of any modern fitness centre. After a workout in the cardio or weight training room, residents can cool off in the indoor pool, relax in the sauna, or replenish at the juice bar.

This striking building is encompassed by equally remarkable surroundings. The lush front courtyard garden leading to the main entrance was imagined by acclaimed Montreal landscape architect, Claude Cormier. As the mind behind Lipstick Forest in Montreal’s Palais des congrès convention centre and the restoration of the historic Dorchester Square, Cormier has created a remarkable sanctuary at the forefront of 1 Square Phillips. The pathway’s stone pattern pulls inspiration from the Prince of Wales Check, and in the centre, evergreens planted in three billowing bonsai pots set the stage for this ornate garden.

1 Square Phillips brings the best of downtown Montreal to your door. Through a secondary entrance, residents have direct access to Saint-Alexandre Street, where they can experience the city’s abundance of restaurants, high-end shopping and nightlife. Just steps away is the Quartier des spectacles, a major cultural arena where concerts and shows play year round. Enjoy the best the city has to offer on foot, with Hudson’s Bay, le Centre Eaton de Montréal — soon home to the Time Out Market that will open November 14th — and Place des Arts just down the street.
