Blakes, Cassels & Graydon S.E.N.C.R.L./s.r.l. chose 1 Place Ville-Marie to house their new office in Montreal and P&R Desjardins to build it.

Approximately 70,000 square feet of office space on the 30th & 31st floors of the building; it was built according to the design planned by architects Lemay and Associates (Pierre-Antoine Brais, Designer) for the tenant’s portion and Groupe ARC Design (Aimée-Jill Bradley, Designer) for  the Landlord portion.

This project of high quality included particularly the drilling of the concrete slab on the 31st floor to allow the construction of an exceptional and monumental staircase. Shockingly, the staircase does not rest on the floor, but is entirely suspended from the ceiling.
