“We are extremely proud to work on this project with Cogir Real Estate, and for our communities to participate in creating benefits for their members and for future generations,” said Derrick Neeposh, President of the Cree Regional Economic Enterprises Company CREECO).
“I am proud to see my nation’s contribution to the Montreal skyline with an innovative and forward-thinking project that will not only showcase the history of the Cree Nation but more importantly will also create space for indigenous organizations and entities”.
“The Odea Montreal project is the first of its kind and will be an economic driving force with endless opportunities for additional investment” added Mandy Gull, Grand Chief, Cree Nation Government.
Designed by Lemay, in collaboration with a world-renowned indigenous architect, Douglas Cardinal, Odea Montreal is a 25-story project that will include 435 residential units, comprised of 264 rental apartments, and 171 condominiums for sale.
The name of the project, Odea, is based on the Cree word “ode”, meaning canoe, which explains the subtle and stylized symbol of the canoe to be featured in the architecture.
The future occupants will be surrounded by bold and functional common spaces, including an artist’s studio in collaboration with the Darling Foundry art complex, green spaces, two rooftop pools, and a sky lounge. Site preparation for construction is already underway, and Odea Montreal is scheduled to be completed in the spring of 2024. We believe this project will enhance the facade of Robert-Bourassa Boulevard.
“We are delighted to be part of this major real estate project along with experienced developer and visionary, Cogir Real Estate, that will provide a new cultural diversity for the City of Montreal,” said Randy Bosum, President of EERP. “We look forward to playing an active role in this development, and we are optimistic that this project will be a success.”
“We are proud and honored to work with the Cree Nation of Eeyou Istchee on a project that will become one of Montreal’s cultural and architectural landmarks. We believe Odea Montreal will be iconic in so many ways,” stated Mathieu Duguay, President, and CEO of Cogir Real Estate.
