RPA Jazz Brossard Condos

Client: Cogir
Architect: TLA Architectes


Jazz Brossard is a private seniors' residence located in the heart of Solar Uniquartier, one of the largest mixed-use developments in Quebec. Ultimately, this large-scale project will act as a link between Montreal’s Downtown Core and the South Shore thanks to the light rail system of which one of the stations will be built nearby.

Located opposite of a central park that animates the neighborhood, the Jazz Brossard consists of 2 rental unit towers of 15 and 26 floors connected by a common podium of 6 floors accentuating the presence of the building at a pedestrian scale. Comprised of 381 rental units and 24 care rooms, the project has common areas spread over 2 floors to provide essential services and amenities.

With its 2 panoramic lounges on the 9th and 24th floors, the building offers its occupants a breathtaking views of both Solar Uniquartier and Downtown Montreal. The building occupies a footprint of 2,224 m² (23,930 ft²) and has a total floor area of over 51,100 m² (550,000 ft²).

The Jazz Brossard includes an indoor swimming pool, bowling alleys, a sports bar, a large dining room, a bistro, a movie theater, a well-being sector with personal care, a health sector with consulting offices and several lounge areas. 330 parking lots are spread over 3 floors of underground parking.


TECHNICAL CHALLENGES:

  • Design of an underpinned foundation with the neighboring building that has two underground parking levels
  • Design of a cantilever entrance canopy joining towers 1 and 2. At its widest point, the canopy extends 8 m (26 ft) without any apparent column
  • More than twenty column transfers up to 1.52 m (5 ft) to accommodate two panoramic lounges and a varying building program
  • Integration of green roofs for the entrance canopy and podium
  • Design of a concrete "basin" to accommodate the indoor pool and spa facilities at Level 1
