Anthony O’Brien, Jesta Group’s Senior Managing Director, looks forward to the space becoming a staple in Old Montreal.

“Our vision at Jesta Group has always been to create a fully integrated urban campus for the future of work, live and play. We are ecstatic that our vision has resonated so strongly with the business community. We look forward to welcoming Novartis, supporting Lightspeed’s continued growth and delivering an exceptional hotel experience with Hyatt at Place Gare Viger.”

The building was originally designed by Bruce Price in 1898. Price was also the designer of Chateau Frontenac in Quebec City. Place Gare Viger was originally a train station as well as a hotel. Jesta Group acquired the space in 2012.
