Gare Windsor

Considered one of Canada’s oldest and most striking examples of Romanesque Revival architecture, Gare Windsor offers some of the most unique office and event space in Montréal—and the country. Gare Windsor was built between 1888 and 1924 for Canadian Pacific Railway.

Today, it no longer hosts trains, but does welcome visitors, tourists , and of course Cadillac Fairview clients. With its location near Place du Canada, adjacent to the Centre Bell, at the heart of the Quartier de l’innovation and with the rapid emergence of a dynamic downtown neighbourhood around it, Gare Windsor is poised to continue as one of the most iconic office buildings in downtown Montréal.

Salle des pas perdus

Room to stage your story

Inaugurated in 1889, this iconic Montréal building has retained its beauty over the years. Light pours in from the stunning glass skylight, framing a one-of-a-kind view of the surrounding cityscape. Classic, sophisticated and timeless, the Salle des pas perdus offers a superb backdrop for your next event!

The Salle des pas perdus impresses from the very first glance. Immense, spacious and bright, it enchants with its historic architectural features, including stately arches that recall the hall of Gare Windsor. Once a busy hall where, over the years, millions of people set off on trips or waited for loved ones, the Salle des pas perdus has been beautifully maintained.

With more than 25,000 square feet of open sky-lit interior and adjacent courtyard and terrace space outdoors, it is one of Montréal’s few reception venues that can accommodate over 2,500 guests.
