Le 1250 René-Lévesque, aussi appelé la Tour IBM, est le deuxième plus haut gratte-ciel de Montréal. Il mesure 199 mètres et il atteint 230,4 m avec son antenne. Il possède 47 étages et fut construit entre 1988 et 1992 par la firme d'architectes Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates (KPF).

Cet édifice, doté d'un design architectural « new-yorkais », abrite des bureaux de grandes compagnies telles que IBM, Canix, Heenan Blaikie, Air liquide, Microsoft, Deutsche Bank, etc. Un centre de restauration express ainsi que des salles de conférence luxueuses en font également partie.

Le 1250 René-Lévesque, qui porte le nom de son adresse (1250 boulevard René-Lévesque Ouest, près du métro Bonaventure) dans le quartier Ville-Marie, est jugé par certains comme le plus beau gratte-ciel de Montréal.



1250 Boulevard René-Lévesque, also known as La Tour IBM-Marathon, is a 199 m (653 ft), 47-story skyscraper in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. It is the second-tallest in the city, behind the nearby 1000 de La Gauchetière, which was completed the same year (1992). Despite being 6 m shorter than 1000 de La Gauchetière, it is built on higher ground and thus also reaches the maximum allowed elevation from sea level (that of Mount Royal).

The building was designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates for IBM Canada and Marathon Realty, hence the former name "IBM-Marathon." It is now named for its address at 1250 René Lévesque Boulevard West, in the Ville-Marie borough of Downtown Montreal. It is adjacent to the Bell Centre and Windsor Station to the south, and stands on the site of the former American Presbyterian Church. It is connected to the Bonaventure metro station and the underground city network.

dleung was right Trump Toronto does share a lot in common with this building. But I'm right as well when saying there is a deco/modernism theme here.

I hope he doesn't see this comment, lol.
