The World Trade Centre Montreal is a shopping centre, office and hotel complex located in the Quartier international district of Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
Completed in 1992 by Arcop, it is an example of a 'horizontal skyscraper' and a leading example of urban renewal, architectural preservation and rehabilitation. The complex united several smaller Victorian-era commercial buildings by encasing them in a larger form, in this case a massive glassed-in atrium running the length of what was once Fortification Lane, itself the site of the city's colonial defensive walls. In a kind of post-modern hommage, a remnant of the Berlin Wall, given to the city in 1992, is on public exhibit within the complex. The complex includes other historic elements, such as a fountain by French architect and sculptor Dieudonné-Barthélemy Guibal also donated to the city in 1992. At the far end of the centre is the Montreal InterContinental Hotel.
Entrances are open from 6 am to 1/7 pm (the closing depends on the entrance gate, please, refer to the official website for detailed information).
