MONTREAL, Sept. 21, 2011 /CNW Telbec/ - A strategic investment of $40 million will lay the groundwork at a crucial stage in the revitalization and
transformation of the Côte-des-Neiges / Notre-Dame-de-Grace borough
called Le Triangle in the Namur / Jean Talon Ouest sector, close to the
Hippodrome de Montreal.
Today's press conference will reveal more information about the mā Condos 146-unit project, located at 5055-59 Rue Paré at the corner of Buchan
Street. The project will be launched Friday, September 23, 2011.
mā Condos is an innovative and forward thinking development that will
contribute to the revitalization and transformation of the Le Triangle
neighbourhood, commented Jordan Dermer, Managing Partner at CD Capital
and Garry Garbarino, President of Construction Garbarino. The quality,
variety and accessibility of available condominiums in mā Condos will
respond to the requirements of future residents who, depending on their
respective tastes, will have the privilege of choosing among many
options to suit their individual needs and expectations. Among many
features, mā Condos has integrated the latest trends in urban development, green landscaping, and architecture.
The condominium project will comprise of an 8-storey + mezzanine, 146
unit building with a combination of studios, one, two, and three
bedroom units, including penthouses and town homes, ranging from 538
to 1,372 sq. ft. The building will be adjacent to the future Le
Triangle Park and gardens. Inspired by design, mā Condos will offer its residents high quality lifestyle situated
immediately adjacent to Parc de la Savane, providing luscious green
spaces (parks and gardens) that will quickly become meeting places for
all residents. The property's common areas, such as the rooftop
terrace, will offer stunning views of Mount-Royal from the East side,
while the West side looks onto a beautiful park.
mā Condos symbolizes a distinct contemporary lifestyle, re-creating an oasis of
peace and tranquility only 10 minutes from downtown Montreal. The
project is located only minutes from Namur and De la Savane metro
stations, universities, and many shops and boutiques in a culturally
and socially diverse area.
A STRATEGIC COMPONENT OF URBAN DEVELOPMENT
The mā Condos developers maintain that the industrial-turned-residential
transformational development fits perfectly within the context of the
Le Triangle revitalization of the Côte-des-Neiges / Notre-Dame-de-Grace
borough! mā Condos is a partnership between CD Capital and Construction Garbarino. CD
Capital's founders (Todd Cowan & Jordan Dermer) have spent a large
portion of their careers with Trizec, formerly one of the largest
landlords in Montreal and Canada (owners of Place Ville Marie) and have
also been involved in the development of over 10 million square feet of
retail, office and residential projects in Canada and Europe.
Construction Garbarino, led by its founder Garry Garbarino, has been
renovating and building high end homes for the past 25 years throughout
the City of Montreal and has been involved in the development of many
residential projects. The project is a concept resulting from an
association between Cardinal Hardy, a renowned architectural firm, and Humà Design, who established their tremendous reputation and experience in the
residential sector, among others, with achievements such as Le Seville,
the Lowney, Les Bassins du Nouveau Havre and Quartier 54.
A VISION FOR A BRIGHT FUTURE IN REVITALIZATION
Ms. Helen Fotopulos, member of the Executive Committee of the City of Montreal, responsible for culture, heritage, design, and women's issues,
commented that this unique project would likely set the tone for the
entire neighbourhood's transformation process. She indicated that the
transformation will require more than $900 million in investments by developers who plan to improve Le Triangle, thus creating a genuine
residential landmark for years to come.
Ms. Fotopulos went further, adding that in order to strengthen the City of Montreal's
vision for Le Triangle, a major design competition was launched earlier in the summer, which focused on the urban planning
and design of public spaces for the Namur-Jean-Talon Ouest sector. The
City of Montréal made this effort to strengthen the vision it had for
Le Triangle with the ultimate goal to greatly improve the quality of
life in a neighbourhood that was ignored for far too long.
The completion of mā Condos in the once industrial area is expected in the fall of 2013.
