A vision for the future:
a legacy for the city
MaryRobert Condominiums is the gateway to the Griffintown neighbourhood, on the outskirts of the Bonaventure project and at the southern end of Peel Street. Erected in a prominent location, the twin towers are similar, yet distinct, each housing approximately 250 studio units, 1 to 3-bedroom condos and penthouses. Anchored in history, while resolutely turning toward the future, these two towers play on duality, highlighting an exceptionally streamlined silhouette and the roughness of raw materials. Their promise? A housing project aimed at ardent fans of the city. While the towers converse with the city, the commercial space converses with the neighbourhood, with Griffintown. Located on the ground floor of the project is a 23,460-square-foot commercial area designed to enhance the quality of life and urban vibrancy of the neighbourhood.Register now
Bold and provocative architecture
Acting as a beacon marking the entrance to the city, the two MaryRobert project towers converse without direct interaction as they stand side-by-side. Their architecture attests to the dynamism of the area, where many major arteries converge. Set above the commercial space as if on a pedestal, they redefine the area with a welcoming raised inner courtyard. Housing units coexist with collective spaces in a true hanging garden, just like Mount Royal. The structure will highlight the duality of the two towers, drawing on both dialogue and opposition.
Offering a contrast of light-dark nuances, the organic and the mineral will meet in harmonious interplay.Register now
History behind the project name
From the mountain to the river, the two towers of the MaryRobert project will mark the end of a journey. They will each personify two characters who left their mark on Montréal: Mary Griffin and Robert Peel. Two towers, two first names that shaped the city. But above all, the project epitomizes a heroic woman, resolutely modern, current, vibrant and luxurious.
Mary Griffin : the pioneer
An important figure in Griffintown, the neighbourhood that bears her name, we rewind to 1804 to learn more about Mary Griffin. Owner of several lots which once comprised a fief, we owe thanks to this woman for the development of the district and its first streets: Wellington (formerly Griffin Street), Queen, Prince and Duke. Mary Griffin was also the first Montrealer to develop an urban plan for the city. A giant step for the city and the involvement of women in its progress!
Robert Peel : the defender of free trade
Great British politician Sir Robert Peel bequeathed his name to one of the main streets of the city: Peel Street. Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 1834 to 1835 and from 1841 to 1846, Robert Peel was a free trade activist and author of the Labour Act of 1844, which limited the working time of women and children in factories, and set safety standards for machinery. At his death, he was called a « wise and glorious councillor of a free people. » (Source: La Revue des Deux Mondes, Wikisource)
