Windsor Station is a former railway terminal and railway headquarters. The imposing building forming a "U" shaped plan is in Richardsonian Romanesque style. The first portion was built from 1887 to 1889, and the wings were added in 1900 and from 1909 to 1914. The facades are punctuated by arches topped by large hanging dormers with open gables and polygonal turrets.

The project, which will take four years to complete, consists of the complete restoration of the masonry on all facades and the replacement of all windows (1,115). The site occupies a densely populated urban area in downtown Montreal and the building is kept occupied throughout the construction period.
