    Le Smith - 26 étages

    It pretty much blends in and harmonizes with its neighbors. I guess that was the goal.

    So basically the land they have would not be large enough for a building footprint that will have 900,000+ sq ft within a height 139m, hence it would need to be taller.

    And to think....not that long ago, the biggest condo towers being built in Montreal were Le Demetrius (14 floors) and Le Concorde (18 floors). And not a single office tower on the horizon except for a government funded cité de commerce électronique and a fluffy westcliff project. These are indeed glorious times......

    Took a screen capture from the CTV video. Difficult to tell what the top will look like. But there seems to be some sort of crown - albeit small.

    Is it office? Mixed use?

    True, they do not use glass as a primary material, but not all their projects are ugly. The 400 Sherbrooke West and the Westin (old port) are quite nice.

    Maison Manuvie - 28 étages

    Manulife says new office building a sign of its commitment to Montreal This is the second-tallest office building to be built in Montreal since the 1990s. JACOB SEREBRIN, MONTREAL GAZETTE More from Jacob Serebrin, Montreal Gazette Published on: November 27, 2017 | Last Updated: November 27, 2017 9:27 PM EST Insurance giant Manulife moved into its new building at 900 de Maisonneuve Blvd. in Montreal on Monday, Nov. 27, 2017. DAVE SIDAWAY / MONTREAL GAZETTE Insurance giant Manulife says its new downtown Montreal office building is a sign of the company’s commitment to the city and to the province. “It’s symbolic of the increased presence that we believe we need to have in Quebec,” said Michael Doughty, the president and CEO of Manulife Canada. The 27-storey Maison Manuvie, at the corner de Maisonneuve Blvd. and Mansfield St., officially opened on Monday. It’s the second-tallest office building to be built in downtown Montreal since the 1990s. “It demonstrates that the Quebec and Montreal economy are showing signs of improvement,” said Kevin Adolphe, the president and CEO of Manulife Asset Management Private Markets. Manulife will occupy 11 floors of the building, and another eight storeys are being rented out to tenants. Of the rental space, more than 80 per cent of it has already been leased, Adolphe said. Those tenants include financial services firm EY and renewable-power company Boralex. The remaining seven storeys will be used for above-ground parking. The building was created through a partnership between Manulife and Montreal-based real-estate company Ivanhoé Cambridge. The joint venture leaves the two companies co-owning the building. Owning its major facilities, rather than renting, is standard practice for Manulife, Adolphe said. “In terms of all our major locations in the world, we own the space that we occupy,” he said. The company also owns buildings in Toronto, Waterloo, Boston, Hong Kong and Singapore. “It’s a great investment,” Adolphe said. The building itself is designed to be bright, with floor-to-ceiling windows. “Historically, the model was the executives would get the curtain wall, they would get the light and they would get large offices, so we’ve changed that concept and we’ve moved offices into the interior,” Adolphe said. The idea is to create a more inviting and engaging environment for employees, he said. The core and shell of the building was built to LEED Gold standards and, Manulife said, it’s the first building in Quebec to receive the WiredScore Platinum certification — a rating of the building’s telecommunication infrastructure. About 2,000 Manulife employees will work in the new building or in another facility across the street. Manulife employees in Montreal had been spread out at several buildings in the city since the company purchased Standard Life in 2015. Doughty said he sees opportunities to grow several of the company’s benefits and wealth-management businesses in Quebec as well as to use Montreal as a source of talented employees. “We think part of our transformation, as we go forward, is going to be based on becoming more of a technology company, becoming more customer-obsessed,” he said. “We think that Montreal is ripe with the talent that we would need to be able to do that.” jserebrin@postmedia.com

    It said in the news wire that it was "joint" effort. To what extent, no clue. "Designed once again by the renowned Canadian architectural group of Page + Steele / IBI Group Architects, jointly with Béïque Legault Thuot Architectes (BLTA), the building's architecture will be integrated with the surrounding area."
