National Bank recently held an official groundbreaking ceremony to kick off the construction of what will become the financial institution’s new head office in Montreal.
At a cost of over half a billion dollars, the project is the largest real estate investment in the city in the past 25 years and marks a new milestone in the history of the bank, founded almost 160 years ago.
Cision said the building is designed to meet the world’s strictest standards in terms of sustainable construction, integrated design and occupants’ health and well-being. The Montreal architect firm Menkès Shooner Dagenais LeTourneux Architectes will be in charge of the design of the new head office, while Broccolini will be the general contractor and project manager and Pomerleau the structural contractor.
With its 40 floors, the nearly 200-metre-high building will be one of the tallest office buildings in Montreal. Construction work is expected to take four years, and be completed by the end of 2022.
