The project involves the revitalization of the Mount Stephen
Club located on Drummond Street, in downtown Montreal.
In addition to being a designated heritage landmark, the
building is a true gem of the 19th century bourgeois
The Mount Stephen Club, designed by architect William
Titus Thomas, is classified as a Historical Monument of
Quebec and is designated as a National Historic Site by the
Government of Canada since 1975. The heritage value of
the building lies in its architectural interest. By its opulence
and overall integrity, this bourgeois residence is
one of the most remarkable in the province. It is, in fact,
one of the most sumptuous 19th century interior of Quebec,
and its state of preservation is astonishing, as much for its
rooms integrity as for its decor.
To revitalize the site and reposition Mount Stephen Club in
the Montreal’s cultural landscape, the owner plans to build
a prestigious 80-room boutique hotel featuring banquet
rooms for 500 patrons. With new attributes such as a
modern kitchen, an underground parking lot of 96 spaces
and diverse amenities such as a spa and a gym, the Mount
Stephen Club will continue to greet members of the
Montreal business community, and so, for generations.
The purpose of our proposal is to present a redevelopment
project that does not threaten the architectural integrity
and heritage value of Mount Stephen Club, but will rather
help highlight its spirit and ensure its survival for future
generations. The preservation and expansion of Mount
Stephen will generate new urban, architectural and artistic
experiences for the city, the Golden Square Mile district and
the touristic industry.
All this will be performed without compromising the
exterior composition of one of the most outstanding historic
mansions in Montreal.
