Montreal CTBUH Global Twilight Walking Tour – Collaborative Real Estate Event happening in several cities around the World

It is with great pleasure that the School of Management (ESG UQAM) Ivanhoe Cambridge Real Estate Chair, the Urban Development Institute of Quebec (UDI) and Montreal’s Chapter of Commercial Real Estate for Women (CREW M), will be participating in the ‘’World Cities – Global Twilight Walking Tour’’, organized by the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH Urban Habitat / Urban Design Committee). It is Montreal’s second participation in CTBUH Collaborative Real estate Events. This time, this specific worldwide walking tour, will focus on the use of space at night. The tours in several cities will all kick off at twilight.


The Montreal CTBUH Global Twilight Walking Tour is free and open to all, with a limited number of places. All attendees require registration by email (at ) or by phone (at 514-718-7088 or 514-987-3000 ext.1657). The Tour will take place on Thursday, August 25, from 5:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. The Tour will be offered by the Quartier des spectacles Partnership. The two and a half hours walking tour is led by a guide certified by the Institut de tourisme et d’hôtellerie du Québec (ITHQ). We will head out on a discovery of the major events that have shaped the urban fabric and spirit of the Quartier des spectacles, from the Red Light era to its recent transformation into a vast outdoor theatre. The Entertainment District is also the home of the School of Management (ESG UQAM) Ivanhoe Cambridge Real Estate Chair, a research-innovation university chair dedicated to developing knowledge and skills in Real Estate. Within this Research Excellence Center, representatives from academia and the workplace are pooling their wealth, breadth and depth of experience to develop and apply skills and knowledge, to stimulate innovation serving the real estate ecosystem. Please join us.
