Montreal will soon have a brand new touristic attraction: an interactive multimedia observatory worth $10 Million, replacing the once known Club Lounge Altitude 737. This renovation will take place on the last 3 floors (total of 45 floors) in the well-known Place Ville-Marie Building (PVM), a total of 15,000 square feet! This extensive project will include a resto-lounge with 120 seats. It will also have two substantial terraces (patios) overlooking the whole of Montreal and available all year round (heated in winter).  The goal is to implement an interactive multimedia experience allowing visitors to glimpse all of the great things Montreal has to offer, including a spectacular unequaled view of the city. Rumours have it that a permanent exhibition will serve that purpose along with a look at Montreal’s history and its known personalities.

Although a lot is still unknown, it’s been said that several well reputed investors are involved: Montreal’s design firm gsmprjct°, Ivanhoé Cambridge, and Claridge, a company belonging to the Bronfman family.

Design firm gsmprjct° have been involved in observatory projects such as Ion Sky in Singapour and At the Top the 124th floor in Burj Khalife Dubaï.

An entrance fee will be in effect as well as the option for yearly membership subscriptions. You can expect the project to be completed by June 2015.
