The Ville-Marie Marriott Courtyard Hotel will be located downtown on the corner of Bleury and René-Lévesque.
The developer is Canvar.
We have no official height statistics yet, though we do know the tower will have 40 floors. Given what we know about previous projects by this developer, i estimate the height to be between 132m-150m (and possibly more)
This project was revealed to the Montreal urban development community site mtlurb.com by member Gilbert and all credit for information and images goes to him.
The news of this building is still somewhat of a "scoop" and still somewhat new, and no official renderings have been released yet. The only images we have are these preliminary photocopies of scans
. The scans show 37 floors but new renderings should reflect the increase to 40 floors.
In terms of current status, all signs point to construction work beginning early next spring. Preliminary preparation is already under way. Workers have been taking measurements and doing other ground work on the site.
This building would be Montreal's tallest skyscraper since 1992.
So again, excuse the poor quality, these are scans of photocopies. These images also show 37 floors when the final design will have 40.
Now some pics of the location and context:
