Rio Tinto signs long-term lease to relocate its Montreal office to city's only
LEED® Platinum (CS) office tower
MONTREAL, July 11, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - Rio Tinto has finalized a long-term
lease with The Cadillac Fairview Corporation Limited and will relocate its
Montreal office to become a key tenant of the Deloitte Tower on
Avenue-des-Canadiens-de-Montréal in downtown Montreal in 2015. Details of the
lease will not be disclosed.
Jacynthe Côté, chief executive of Rio Tinto Alcan stated: "Rio Tinto is
committed to creating the safest, most efficient, environmentally-friendly and
cost-effective work place for our employees. Our new home will provide this
and so much more. The relocation of our Montreal office will mark a new
chapter in the rich history of our presence in this city that we have called
home for nearly a century. We are very proud to renew our long-term commitment
to the Montreal community and to ensure the continuity of Rio Tinto Alcan's
global headquarters in Montreal."
Rio Tinto will regroup all of its Montreal-based employees in this new office
location where they will benefit from all of the amenities of the current
location at 1188 Sherbrooke Street West and much more. The Company will occupy
the top eight storeys of the 26-storey tower which represents 190,000 square
feet of office space.
The Deloitte Tower will be Montreal's first LEED® Platinum (CS) office
development. LEED® buildings are higher performing in terms of energy and
water consumption, indoor air quality, and access to natural light. LEED®
Platinum (CS) is the highest possible level of certification and is consistent
with Rio Tinto's commitment to sustainability.
Rio Tinto's future Montreal home will be located on the
Avenue-des-Canadiens-de-Montréal between two landmarks; the Bell Centre, and
the heritage-designated Windsor Station. Construction of the new office tower
began in 2012 and is expected to be complete by the second half of 2015.
The signing of this lease coincides with the conclusion of an agreement for
the sale of Rio Tinto's current office space at 1188 Sherbrooke Street West in
Montreal. Details regarding the sale will be made public in due course.
