corner of Peel and Wellington, the project will include 1, 2, and 3

Amenities include concierge service, parking spaces, a car-sharing
service, as well as a rooftop terrace with a semi-Olympic sized
swimming pool. Also, the units will have large storage spaces, and all
appliances will be provided.
Approved by the Urban Planning advisory committee of the southwest
borough, this new District Griffin tower will follow the committee's
recommendations by setting up a communication component with the
tenants in order to inform them of the project's sustainable
development initiatives. Devimco Immobilier encourages its residents to
act as environmentally responsible citizens.
Devimco Immobilier will do its part to participate in the quality of
life of the greater Griffintown area by transferring plots to the City
of Montreal to recreate the Park Square Gallery and to develop Smith
Street. Therefore, the rental building will be located adjacent to
these public spaces, creating a new sustainable and convivial
neighbourhood where all age groups will find nearby security, all
aligned with the vision of the new SPP.
