1000 De La Gauchetière is Montreal’s tallest skyscraper.
This is a multifunctional building: office tower, shopping mall—it even has an ice skating rink in its atrium. Its distinctive arrow shape dominates and defines Montreal’s skyline.
A prime example of post-modern architecture and strongly inspired by adjacent buildings, it was designed to commemorate Montreal’s 350th anniversary. Its construction required 9,000 tons of steel—as much steel as the Eiffel Tower—and was completed in only 318 days.
