The windbreak wall, the only one of its kind in North America, is a marvel of northern architecture. It stretches 1.3 km, protecting the town from the prevailing north winds. Known simply as The Wall, Fermont's central structure houses 344 apartment units, community and municipal services, a school, and healthcare and recreational facilities (arena, pool and exhibition space), as well as a shopping centre, all linked by a temperature-controlled indoor promenade.
