This striking all glass office tower is perhaps best known for the sculpture at its base on McGill College Avenue
: Raymond Mason's "The Illuminated Crowd" is a life-size group of men, women and children looking amazed at something the passersby can only imagine. It is one of downtown's most visited attractions, a real touch of whimsy amidst the shadows of downtown. The building itself dates from 1983, when the broad avenue was re-modeled in the spirit of Paris' Champs-Elysées.
