McRobie Architects + Interior Designers Inc. was the Prime Consulting Architect and Interior Designer for the development of a 19-storey, 360,000 square foot office tower in downtown Ottawa accommodating departments of the federal government as well as the regional headquarters of the Bank of Montreal.

The architectural expression of the unitized curtain-wall glass and aluminum is grounded by a granite arcade at street-level. A two-storey curved atrium highlights the north façade. Beyond this atrium and covering the 220 car parking garage a landscaped plaza provides a welcome urban oasis for passersby. (2005)
