Groupe Dargis Transforms 5561, 9th Avenue Into Six, Neuf & Masson!
MONTREAL, Nov. 1, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - Groupe Dargis is proud to announce that its latest project—Six, Neuf & Masson in Montreal's Rosemont district—is being offered for sale. The project, which was carried out with much less funding than that required for the group's usual large-scale ventures, is well suited to the neighbourhood and local history, while being perfectly aligned with client needs.
Along with six other buildings, 5561 9th Ave burnt to the ground on the night of March 1, 2011 as the result of a terrible fire that started in a neighbouring structure. Groupe Dargis initially became involved as a claims adjuster, but then acquired the location from the owner with the intention of quickly rebuilding on the same site.
Groupe Dargis' new construction is three stories, just like the original. The six living spaces are NovoclimatTM certified, loft-style one-bedroom condos and two-storey townhouses with their own private balconies. The upper units also have access to a private rooftop terrace.
Six, Neuf & Masson is part of a diverse and stimulating environment that embraces the community's spirit. It is located in the heart of the popular Rosemont neighbourhood, close to Masson Street, Molson Park and new Angus Shops area.
About Groupe Dargis
Prudent Dargis established Groupe Dargis in 1965. It is now headed by Mario Dargis, who acquired solid expertise in all areas of new construction and re-development projects through a constantly growing number and size of successful projects.
The firm has focused its efforts since 2008 on a specific and important niche: sustainable development and the restoration of historic buildings. The first of these endeavours was Villa Raimbault, the former Sisters of Providence in Cartierville that Groupe Dargis converted into a low-income seniors' residence. Their next development was 4075 Verdun, a gutted structure that they rebuilt into a residential complex with an elevator for people with cognitive impairments. Groupe Dargis also worked on Station 1, a cornerstone of Montreal's heritage. The city asked Groupe Dargis to apply its creative prowess and turn the building into a residential co-op. Groupe Dargis has garnered multiple awards for this effort over the past year (including a Domus Prize from the APCHQ-Montréal Métropolitain) attesting to the quality of its work and the importance of revitalizing our built heritage.
