L'Avenue Montreal Enhanced with 434,700 SF of AGC North America's Energy Select
Luxury apartments and key downtown businesses housed in elegant, high-performing structure
Designed by Toronto-based firm, IBI Group, L'Avenue is the pinnacle of luxury living. Residential amenities are located on the 9th floor, which is also the first tower floor, and they were designed to offer a resort-like experience for inhabitants. The building is located advantageously, right across from the Bell Center on Avenue des Canadiens.
L'Avenue utilizes AGC Energy Select R42 and AGC Solarshield®
"With the AGC glass products we specified, we most liked the balance achieved between aesthetics and performance,"
The architectural team, consisting of project leader Mansoor Kazerouni, Global Director, Buildings, IBI, Titka Seddighi, Associate Director and Practice Lead, Architecture, also with IBI, and Caliman, designed the tower to have three sculpted rectilinear volumes that step away from the adjacent office building revealing each of its layers. It echoes the traditional design of New York City high-rise towers and presents a modern contribution to the Montreal skyline.
"The tower is a combination of dark and clear curtain wall glazing that defines the 3 vertical shafts making up the tower," Caliman says.
Energy Select R42 has a strong visible light transmission of 62% and is an outstanding solar blocker. Solarshield is a tinted glass solution that creates an attractive exterior appearance while increasing air conditioning efficiency and comfort, reducing glare, and offering unobstructed views.
The Energy Select range was developed to help architects meet the regulatory challenges of each project while maintaining their design vision.
L'Avenue received the INOVA Award from the Urban Development Institute of Québec that recognizes the talent of those who contribute and enhance Québec's expertise in real estate.
The L'Avenue condos were completed in 2016. The owner/developer was Broccolini Construction, Inc., and architectural services were provided by the IBI Group and Page + Steele Architects. The glazing contractor was Gamma, and the glass fabricator was Multiver Ltée.
