"Charlesbourg is a modern, sought-after Québec City suburb that offers an enviable quality of life and numerous wooded areas. This is why we've chosen this place to build an apartment building with condo-style units that will appeal to an active clientele in search of quality, peace of mind and proximity to services," said Mr. Sylvain Gilbert, President and CEO of GCS Développement Immobilier.

"We're looking to increase our presence in Québec City and are capitalizing on this opportunity to team up with a new partner who not only has in-depth knowledge of the local market but also owns strategically located lots conducive to the development of real estate projects that will benefit the community. For example, Arrondissement 74 will help stimulate the regional economy by creating over 150 jobs," added Mr. Normand Bélanger, President and CEO of the Fonds immobilier de solidarité FTQ.

The contemporary-style building will have a rooftop terrace with spectacular views of the provincial capital. It will be built according to superior quality standards, ensuring maximum soundproofing and comfort. All apartments will have central air, large windows, and a balcony with glass railings.
