Birks Building 

Henry Birks Building

Birks Group Incorporated

1240 Phillips Square, Sainte-Catherine Street, Montreal, Quebec 

 

Architecture 

Architecte: Edward Maxwell 1894

 

The Birks Building was built in Philips Square in downtown Montreal in 1894, to house Henry Birks’s Jewellery shop. 

Today, the shop remains opened but in 2018 part of the building has become a boutique hotel overlooking Philipps Square.

 

The transformation was made with great attention in restoring the building’s architectural details. The offices on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th floors were converted into 132 modern and comfortable rooms and suites, while the hotel’s reception and restaurant were built next to the jewellery shop, on the ground floor. 

 

Through the entrance doors one discovers the beauty of this institution’s architectural details and its carefully restored original ceiling mouldings and massive columns. 

 

 

1840-1928 • Henry Birks, Legacy – Founder of Birks Jewelry Company 

1879 – First store opened on St-James Street 

1907 – As Montreal’s commercial centre moved north toward Saint Catherine Street, the Birks store moved to its new location at Phillips Square in 1894,  where the company still maintains a store and corporate offices.

2018 –  Hotel Birks arrives.                                        Following a meticulous restoration of the Birks building, Les Hôtels St-Martin debuts their first North American  5-star property.
