About Espace C2
Espace C2 is a prototype conference centre that crowns the Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth hotel’s business campus. The elevated structure, which stands above the rooftop of the hotel, was designed as a beacon, a visible signal that pays homage to the city’s creativity and potential. Sitting atop it all, Espace C2 offers views of the McGill axis and Montreal skyline. It is poised to become a breeding ground for the sharing and interchange of knowledge and ideas.
About 950 Beaumont
The 950 Beaumont project involved the conversion of an industrial building into leasable spaces. Located at the intersection of Outremont, Town of Mount Royal and Park Extension, the site was a former household gas storage facility. It once belonged to Gazomètre Beaumont, a 175 x 175 ft. gasometer that contained and supplied coal gas from the borough of LaSalle.
