Le Cartier Apartments is a high-rise apartment building in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. It is located at 1115 Sherbrooke Street West at the corner of Peel Street in the Golden Square Mile area of Downtown Montreal. It is 32 stories and 98 metres (322 ft) tall.[2] It contains four basement floors, three elevators and 182 units.[1]

Its architecture is considered to be international style[2] and its structure is made of steel.[2] Construction began in 1963 and was completed in 1964.[2] It was designed by Mankes and Webb.[3] The developer was ACI Property Corporation.[4]

Originally owned by the Montreal Trust Company, it was purchased by René Lépine and Lorne Wesbter in 1969, through a leveraged buyout. They built the Peel Plaza building right next to it in 1973.[5]
