2,630 residential units
1,987,686 square feet of office
101,669 of expo space
432 hotel rooms
344,538 square feet of retail
6,081 parking spaces in garages
In total, 17 buildings with the tallest at 24 stories are planned, spanning six city blocks.
Leasing is already underway for the first phase, which includes renovating warehouses to provide 200,000 square feet of commercial space. Renovation is already underway, with occupancy in September 2018.
The second phase of the project will include the Forest of Curiosities park created in partnership with Lune Rouge, the Montreal-based enterprise founded by Cirque de Soleil founder, Guy Laliberté. The park promotes innovation, creativity and entrepreneurship and will have a central role in the curation and creative direction of Magic City’s arts and entertainment venues.
