MONTREAL | 1000 Rue de la Gauchetiere | 673 FT / 205 M | 51 FLOORS | 1992

This is Montreal's tallest building. It rises to the maximum height allowed by the city.

The (Le) 1000 de La Gauchetière is a skyscraper in the Canadian city of Montreal and the tallest building in the province of Quebec. It is named for its address at 1000 De la Gauchetière Street West in the city's downtown. It rises to the maximum height approved by the city (the elevation of Mount Royal) at 205 m (673 ft) and 51 floors. A popular feature of this building is its atrium which holds a large skating rink.
Inside, the structural core is of concrete, with steel making up the rest of the floorplates. It is serviced by 22 elevators, and its recessed corners allow up to twelve corner offices per floor. In addition to its office space and shopping areas, it includes a full-size indoor skating rink, a physical fitness center, a major bus terminal (the Downtown Terminus) serving RTL city and commuter buses to Longueuil, Brossard and other South Shore communities, and links to other underground city buildings, Central Station and the Bonaventure metro station.
This building is the 8th tallest in Canada!
