MONTRÉAL, Sept. 16, 2014 /CNW Telbec/ - A partnership agreement has been inked by LSR GesDev and Sotramont, two long-standing developers, builders and property owners, Groupe Maltais Saint-Lambert, an active real estate investor, and Fonds immobilier de solidarité FTQ for a new multi-residential development in Saint-Lambert.
A 26,715 sq. ft. lot is the site selected for the construction of an 8-story condominium building. Located at 295 Riverside, between Argyle and Lorne Avenues, the building will house a maximum of 54 units, all with an unbeatable view of downtown Montréal and the Saint Lawrence River. This mature neighbourhood is just a few steps away from Saint-Lambert's main commercial artery, rue Victoria, and less than 1 kilometre from the train station.
"We've taken a personalized approach with this project. We are meeting with prospective buyers before drawing up the plans to find out what they would like to see in terms of unit size, architecture, price and amenities. Our architects will then take this wish list and translate it into a well-designed project. Boomers will like the strategic location and the kind of lifestyle you find in Saint-Lambert " said Annie Lemieux, president of LSR GesDev.
For Fonds immobilier de solidarité FTQ, this project brings the total number of projects underway to over thirty. According to its president and CEO, Normand Bélanger, "In such a competitive market, it's essential to deliver what buyers want. We hope to break ground next spring with this project, valued at some $25 million."
"Not only is Saint-Lambert a mature city that offers a great quality of life, it has the added benefit of being just 5 minutes from the bridges to Montréal. Given the scarcity of land available for development in this neighbourhood, we're sure this project will be a success. Our partners all agree that the building's architecture should be both current and classic and that the construction should be top quality and respectful of the environment, an important aspect for Saint-Lambert residents," concluded Sotramont president Marc-André Roy.
