2030 Pie-IX

 Description

This industrial building, located near Marché Maisonneuve and the Olympic Stadium, was built over a reinforced concrete structure, a construction technique considered innovative at the turn of the century. Large concrete pilasters, visible from the outside, exposes the structural system of beams and columns. The east and west façades are opened up in such a way as to provide exceptional natural lighting through the huge arched paned windows on the top floor. Another advantage of the reinforced concrete structure is the openness of the interior space, with numerous mushroom-shaped pillars. The main façade features moulded shapes in the Art Nouveau style, a rarity.

  • History

    The name ‘American Can Co.’ is engraved on the façade. The American manufacturer of tin cans became one of the largest employers in Montreal when it set up its business operations there in 1901
