I absolutely love the design of this tower. Really nice massing, good materials, and a great crown feature.

I have to admit it sound a little bit corny but not enough to describe it as ridiculous.

La ville de Paris est pas mal championne pour donner des noms "cucul" à ses tours. Je ne peux pas parler des autres villes françaises par contre.

D'en avoir quelques-uns nous aussi ne me fera pas trop de peine.

The tower is completed!

The tower is completed!

The curtain raises on Le Crystal
Green features. Operator also owns Le Saint-Sulpice
ROBERTO ROCHA, The Gazette
Published: 22 hours ago
After three years under construction, intriguing Montrealers with its arrowhead spire, Hôtel Le Crystal is open for business.

The posh new hotel at the corner of René Lévesque Blvd. and Mountain St. cost $80 million to build and boasts an energy conservation system that it claims will cut hydro costs by as much as 40 per cent.

Partaking in the green business trend was but one motive for the hotel, managers say. The building's high-tech brains, made by engineering giant Siemens AG, is a key to make Le Crystal as successful as its older brother, Le Saint-Sulpice hotel in Old Montreal.

"This hotel will have one of the highest occupancy rates in the city," proclaimed Pierre Parent, president of Resort One, the firm behind both hotels.

The popular Old Montreal lodging enjoys a 76-per-cent occupancy rate, one of the city's highest.

In addition to 131 suites, Le Crystal has 53 condos, most of which have already been sold. Some of the top floors and its spa are still under construction and are expected to be complete in the summer.

The hotel's energy saving system alone cost $1 million. The technology works like a body's homeostasis. It detects temperatures in the building and automatically adjusts them, while powering down inactive areas.

This system could, in theory, result in 40-per-cent energy savings.

"Over a 25-year span, that really adds up," said Geoff Allan, Le Crystal's general manager.

"If, in 10 years, regulations say that buildings have to comply with energy codes, we can say we're already there," Allan said.

I absolutely love this building! It's so elegant, and beautiful. I'd love something of this quality and standard in Halifax. Well done Montreal!
