On October 19, 2017, the Urban Development Institute of Québec (UDI) announced the recipients of the 2017 INOVA Awards, which honour the most innovative commercial real estate projects having a positive impact for their community.
The Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth project took home the Otéra Capital Award, in the “Commercial/Construction costs greater than $50M” category. The project was lauded for:
- Its technology integration, and CoLab hub which appeals to a larger customer base.
- Its positive impact on the Montreal community.
- And of course, its in-depth transformations, which have revitalized and breathed new life into one of Montreal's most iconic landmarks.
Winning team: Ivanhoé Cambridge, Dudee, Sid Lee Architecture, Architecture49, Dupras Ledoux, SDK and Pomerleau.
