Montreal Olympic Tower

When the world was due to converge on Montréal for the 1976 Summer Olympics, the city embarked upon the construction of a new stadium that was to have a unique observatory tower that would provide visitors with an incredible view of the Olympic area and the city in general.

However, it wasn’t until more than 10 years after the Olympic athletes left this Québec city that the Montréal Tower Observatory opened to the public. In actuality, it wasn’t really until during the building process itself that architects and planners decided to place the observatory, the exhibition hall and the reception hall on the 3 upper floors of the tower.
