Located on Saint-Antoine Street, between the World Trade Centre Montréal and Édifice Jacques-Parizeau, the Montreal Herald is a typical building of the old Paper Hill neighbourhood where the majority of the city’s newspapers operated. Built in 1913, the Montreal Herald building housed, at one time, one of Canada’s most popular newspapers.
The project consisted of major restoration work on the exterior masonry walls, an extension on the roof, the construction of two new façades, a complete interior design of the rental spaces, and the integration of new mechanical and electrical systems using cutting edge technology in terms of energy efficiency.
The building is now an annex of Édifice Jacques-Parizeau, which houses the Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec. The two buildings are is linked by an exterior terrace. The rental space in the Montreal Herald building boasts raised flooring coupled with a low velocity ventilation system, similar to its next door neighbor.
