Beautiful art deco building in the middle of nowhere in Griffintown. This building is typical in Montreal : the city has amazing buildings but they're all spread out here and there. This one is no exception. The drab surroundings undermine it. It's in the middle of a 'dead zone.' If every stunning structure on the island were conglomerated in one general area, Montreal would be considered one of the great cities of the world but alas one has to go through a lot of average or ugly stuff to see such beautiful architecture. This is the result of a lack of vision.

Beau bâtiment style art déco au milieu de nulle part à Griffintown. Ce bâtiment est typique de Montréal: la ville a des bâtiments étonnants, mais ils sont tous répartis ici et là. Celui-ci ne fait pas exception. Ce coin de la ville réduit sa splendeur et sa valeur. C'est au milieu d'une 'zone morte.' Si chaque superbe structure de l'île était conglomérée dans une zone générale, Montréal serait considérée comme l'une des grandes villes du monde, mais hélas, il faut passer par beaucoup de choses moyennes ou moche pour voir une telle architecture magnifique. Ceci est le résultat d'un manque de vision.
