This 16 storey residential rental property is situated in the heart of downtown Montreal and includes 3 underground parking levels. Its envelope will be composed of curtain wall, brick, precast, and will incorporate the existing facade of the 400 Dowd heritage building which will be fully restored to its original look, and merged with a new and modern addition.

In order to reach the desired basement levels, Reliance needed to blast 5 meters of rock. Seismographs were installed in various locations in order to monitor the vibrations of the surroundings buildings. In order not to disturb the adjacent historical building's rubble foundations, Reliance proposed a secant wall installation in lieu of conventional underpinning. A method rarely used in Montreal.

Opening is planned for summer 2019.
