Antilia features 168 parking garages, 9 high-speed elevators, a spa, a health centre, a helipad, a swimming pool and a snow chamber that shoots snowflakes out of the walls. Its design makes it capable of withstanding an earthquake up to an 8.0 on the Richter scale.
Odeon Tower Penthouse, Beausoleil
Groupe Mazococo constructed the opulent penthouse, which was designed by Alexandre Giraldi. In addition to being multi-story, the penthouse features a rooftop deck, pool, and private elevator.

With a living area of about 29,000 square feet, the property is said to have 40 bedrooms, eight garages, a tennis court, a sauna, a library, and a grand dining room.
