List of tallest buildings in Montreal

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This is a list of the tallest buildings in Montreal that ranks skyscrapers in the city of Montreal, Quebec, Canada, by height. There are currently 42 buildings and structures in Montreal greater than 100 m (328 ft). The tallest building in the city is the 51-storey, 205-metre-tall (673 ft), 1000 de La Gauchetière

Municipal regulations forbid any building from exceeding the height of Mount Royal, or 233 m (764 ft) above mean sea level.[1] Above-ground height is further limited in most areas and a minority of the downtown land plots are allowed to contain buildings exceeding 120 metres in height.[2] The maximum limit is currently attained by 1000 de La Gauchetière and 1250 René-Lévesque, the latter of which is shorter, but built on higher ground. To build higher than 1000 de La Gauchetière while respecting this limit would be to build on the lowest part of downtown; the maximum height there would be approximately 210 metres.[2]

The history of skyscrapers in Montreal began with the completion of the eight-storey-tall New York Life Insurance Building in 1888.[3] Most high-rise construction in Montreal occurred in two periods: the late 1920s to the early 1930s and then from the early 1960s to the early 1990s.

In the 21st Century, the rate of high-rise construction in the city increased again with more under construction in 2014 than in any other North American City bar Toronto and New York.[4] Recently completed are the 50-storey (184 m) L'Avenue, 50-storey (167 m) Tour des Canadiens, 40-storey (147 m) phase 1 of Roccabella. And still under construction are the 39-storey (146 m) Icône, and 40-storey Tom Condos (122 m).

Tallest buildings

This list ranks Montreal skyscrapers that stand at least 122 metres (400 ft) tall, based on standard height measurement. This includes architectural details but does not include spires or antenna masts. An equal sign (=) following a rank indicates the same height between two or more buildings. The "Year" column indicates the year in which a building was completed. Freestanding observation and/or telecommunication towers, while not habitable buildings, are included for comparison purposes; however, they are not ranked. One such tower is the Tour de Montréal.

Notes

  1. ^ The Tour de Montréal is not a habitable building, but is included in this list for comparative purposes. Per a ruling by the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat, freestanding observation towers are not considered to be buildings, as they are not fully habitable structures.
