In late 2018, a spectacular new project is set to redefine and re-energize Montreal’s downtown core and bring a world-class luxury ecosystem to life in the city’s centre. Developed by Carbonleo, the dynamic Quebec property development and management company, Montreal will once again become home to the world’s leading luxury hotel and resort brand, Four Seasons. Located at the heart of Montreal’s ultra chic Golden Square Mile, within walking distance of multiple museums, art galleries, gourmet restaurants and luxury boutiques, the 170-room hotel, along with only 18 spectacular Four Seasons Private Residences, is set to transform De la Montagne Street forever.
“We’ve been working with some of the world’s best architects and designers, including Gilles & Boissier for the hotel’s interior layout, Philip Hazan Design for the private residences, and Lemay and Sid Lee for the building architecture, ” said Carbonleo Executive Vice President and Partner Claude Marcotte. “We’re also working with a number of talented and world-renowned local partners in the areas of design and lifestyle to create a truly inspiring and unique ecosystem for visitors and Montrealers alike.”
LUXURY, CALM AND EXQUISITE PLEASURE
The energy of the hotel will emanate from its highly anticipated 4th floor, acting as the social nexus of place. Awe-inspiring restaurants designed by international luminaries with a strong Montreal connection give way to a modern interpretation of the gourmet experience done the Montreal way, by an internationally acclaimed local culinary visionary. Guests will be able to drink up the sexy atmosphere in the restaurant or connect in a beautifully landscaped outdoor canopy when making the most of Montreal’s warmer days and nights is a priority! The upscale hotel will house an indoor pool, a fitness centre and a state-of-the-art spa, allowing guests to unwind in all four seasons after taking in the sensual energy of the city and all that is possible at the hotel. Cleverly designed to accommodate major events, the hotel will also include a 6,000 square foot ballroom with a sweeping terrace with some of the best views in the city.

THE SKY IS THE LIMIT
Sitting on top of the Four Seasons Hotel, the private residences are homes in the sky, providing their inhabitants with unobstructed views of the city. With soaring ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows, they are bathed in light, with large terraces providing a front row view of every sunrise and sunset. The high-quality materials, sleek design and careful finishes all contribute to a luxurious experience of contemporary harmony and serenity. As proud owners at the city’s most sought-after address, the fortunate few who will live in these luxurious surroundings will have exclusive access to the hotel’s facilities while enjoying personalized à la carte services. Residents can write their own lifestyle rules, whether hiring a chef for a festive evening at home, consulting a personal trainer or shopper, or embracing the nightlife of the hotel with the promise of returning to the luxury cocoon of the residence.
A CELEBRATION OF URBAN LIFE
With year-round international festivals and events, Montreal is one of the world’s style, culture and good living capitals, blending the best of European and North American culture. Built in the heart of the action, the new Four Seasons development will reflect the city’s unique personality. Linking the Bell Centre to the museum district, this new living space will be adjacent to Saint Catherine Street’s prestigious Ogilvy boutique in downtown Montreal. Currently under renovation, the new Ogilvy’s/Holt Renfrew concept will be a must-see luxury destination, covering over 220,000 square feet. “Montrealers have been waiting to see how De la Montagne Street will evolve,” said Jean-François Breton, President of Carbonleo. “We are very proud to be leading this outstanding project that’s sure to revitalize the downtown core.”More than just a tourist and residential complex, Four Seasons Montreal’s Hotel and Private Residences will create a true luxury, lifestyle and gourmet food ecosystem at the heart of the Golden Square Mile, becoming an iconic space where Montrealers and visitors want to be.
