Photographer's Note

One of the many downtown church in Montreal, taken last january late in the day as the sun was going down.

Christ Church Cathedral is an Anglican cathedral in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, the seat of the Anglican Diocese of Montreal.

A cathedral by this name was formerly located on Notre-Dame Street in Old Montreal. When the Anglican Diocese of Montreal was separated from the Diocese of Quebec, that Christ Church was designated as the cathedral for the new diocese. It was destroyed by fire in 1856.

This one is located on Ste-Cathrine street and University, the building in the back is the KPMG.

The Tour KPMG, formerly Maison des Cooprants or Place de la Cathdrale, is a 34 storey skyscraper located in downtown Montreal that was completed in 1987. It has an official height of 146 m (479ft). It is built on a plot of land owned by the Christ Church Cathedral, which lies directly in front of the building when viewed from Saint Catherine Street. The tower was designed by WZMH Architects and was styled in order to relate to the cathedral located directly adjacent to it. The skyscraper incorporates an underground shopping centre known as Promenades Cathdrale as part of the Underground City that is directly connected to the Metro.

The building was originally called Maison des Cooprants for the then-anchor tenant, as can be seen on the inscription in the lobby, however it was later named Place de la Cathdrale. At the end of 2005 the tower was renamed to its current name for KPMG, the new anchor tenant that occupies floors 8 to 15.
