Odea Montreal: A new cultural diversity project for the City of Montreal

Montreal, November 29, 2021. The partnership formed by CREECO, the parent company of Eeyou Eenou Realty Properties Inc. (EERP) and Cogir Real Estate is proud to unveil its spectacular Odea Montreal mixed-use project in Old Montreal. The site, owned by the James Bay Cree since 1995, has witnessed the revitalization of the neighbourhood and will reflect the Cree’s desire to participate in community development.

“We are extremely proud to work on this project with Cogir Real Estate and for our communities to participate in creating benefits for their members and for future generations.” said Derrick Neeposh, President of the Cree Regional Economic Enterprises Company CREECO).

“I am proud to see my nation’s contribution to the Montreal skyline with an innovative and forward-thinking project that will not only showcase the history of the Cree nation, but also create more importantly space for indigenous organizations and entities. The Odea Montreal project is the first of its kind and will be an economic driving force with endless opportunities for additional investment” added Mandy Gull, Grand Chief Cree Nation Government.

Designed by Lemay in collaboration with Douglas Cardinal, world-renowned indigenous architect, Odea Montreal will be a 25-storey project which will include 435 residential units, composed of 264 rental apartments and 171 condominiums for sale. The name of the project, Odea, is based on the Cree word “ode” meaning canoe which will explain the subtle and stylized symbol of the canoe in the architecture. The future occupants will be surrounded by bold and functional common spaces, such as an artist’s studio in collaboration with the Darling Foundry art complex, green spaces, two rooftop pools, and a sky lounge. Site preparation for construction is already underway and Odea Montreal is scheduled to be completed in the spring of 2024. We believe this project will enhance the facade of Robert-Bourassa Boulevard.

“We are delighted to be part of this major real estate project, along with experienced developer and visionary Cogir Real Estate, that will provide a new cultural diversity for the City of Montreal,” said Randy Bosum, President of EERP. “We look forward to playing an active role in this development and are optimistic that this project will be a success.”

“We are proud and honored to work with the Cree Nation of Eeyou Istchee on a project that will become one of Montreal’s cultural and architectural landmarks. We believe Odea Montreal will be iconic in so many ways,” stated Mathieu Duguay, President and CEO of Cogir Real Estate.
