Ivanhoé Cambridge and Sid Lee are very pleased to announce a long-term agreement for Sid Lee’s move into 1 Place Ville Marie in Montreal. Starting in early 2019, Sid Lee’s 350 employees will occupy specially transformed spaces in a campus covering a total area of about 5,666 m2 (61,000 ft2).
Designed and imagined by Sid Lee Architecture, in collaboration with Ivanhoé Cambridge, the Sid Lee campus will comprise office spaces specifically created to meet the unique needs of the agency’s multidisciplinary creative teams. In addition to highly collaborative and flexible workspaces, the campus will feature a brand-new multifunctional area and a distinctive bistro for its employees.
The spaces will be distributed throughout the banking halls located in the lobby and on the mezzanine levels overlooking the Place Ville Marie Esplanade.
“We are very pleased with the arrival of Sid Lee, which marks a turning point for Place Ville Marie,” said Bernard Poliquin, Senior Vice President, Office, Quebec, at Ivanhoé Cambridge. “Place Ville Marie is central to our ongoing transformation of downtown. We are now fully engaged in our ‘Projet Nouveau-Centre,’ which is Ivanhoé Cambridge’s plan to invest $1 billion in the downtown core by 2020.”
Martin Gauthier, President, Sid Lee Montreal and Head of Global Operations, Sid Lee, said: “By moving into Place Ville Marie, we hope to design the world’s best collaborative environment. Our employees will not only participate in Place Ville Marie’s future but they will be more connected than ever to downtown and its urban transportation systems, and right next to all of its services and events.”
