5 New York Life Building at Place d’Armes in Montreal, Canada

There is a sharp contrast between the Aldred Building and the neighboring New York Life Building constructed in 1887. The eight-story façade is covered with red sandstone from Scotland and has a Richardsonian Romanesque design. In 1909, the life insurance company moved out and the Bank of Quebec moved in. Consequently, the office building is often referred to as the Quebec Banking Building.
