Appartements Dorchester consists of a new high-rise apartment building added to the former Hotel Maritime Plaza, built in 1964, and will serve the rental market once completed. Construction is planned in two phases.
The existing 15-storey building, including the iconic rotunda, first underwent several procedures to preserve it and restore its original appearance and materials. The interior spaces were also redesigned and renovated with residential use in mind.
A new 37-storey tower is now under construction on the eastern side of the building. The tower will house 308 of the complex’s 500 rental units, with common services on the ground floor and parking underground.
