What's Inside Montreal's Olympic Tower?
#1
I've always wondered what was on those floors partway up the tower of the Olympic Stadium in Montreal:

After some google searching, I found these stellar photos!  Thought I'd share. I'd do anything to explore them!

Thanks Canard! That was interesting to me: I grew up not too far east of the stadium and my spouse lived in the shadow of it for a few years. One of my friends is interested in pictures of the Stadium pre-tower.

Awesome!  But less empty now (I think those photos are from early 2016), Globe's article from yesterday says Desjardins has 1000 staff at the stadium.

Quote:An elevator ride leads to tower floors that were dormant for 30 years and are now being renovated into a workplace for 1,000 Desjardins Group credit-union employees. The stadium has 700 other tenants, many of them non-profit and sporting organizations.

Yes, the photographer/architect was invited to take some pictures to document the space before the employees moved in.
