MONTRÉAL, June 22, 2017 /CNW Telbec/ - Devimco Immobilier and the Fonds immobilier de solidarité FTQ have launched L'Hexagone 2, a new residential rental project in Montréal's Griffintown. Forming a part of District Griffin, the building recently broke ground and will be ready for occupancy in spring 2019.
The project in brief:
- 28,000 ft2 lot;
- Construction of a new 22-storey residential rental tower next to L'Hexagone (1), which offers 257 apartments over 15 floors;
- L'Hexagone 2 will offer 320 studios, 1-, 2- and 3-bedroom units;
- 22,500 ft2 of commercial space on the ground floor;
- 167 indoor parking spaces and common spaces, including a large lobby, a lounge, an outdoor pool and a spacious terrace;
- 24/7 security;
- Property management by Cogir immobilier.
- Part of the District Griffin project, L'Hexagone 2 offers many advantages, including an unbeatable location;
- Located at the corner of Smith and Murray Streets, in the Griffintown neighbourhood;
- Views of downtown Montréal, Old Montréal, the St. Lawrence River and the Lachine Canal;
- Buses nearby;
- BIXI bike sharing stations within walking distance;
- Easy access to the Bonaventure and Ville-Marie expressways, and to Champlain Bridge.
"We're delighted to capitalize on the success of District Griffin's first rental tower, L'Hexagone (I), which was highly successful during it's first year after its launch with a high occupancy rate, clearly attesting to the quality of the product and the neighbourhood's appeal. This second phase will help address the shortage of quality dwellings in this part of the city. Our $4.8 million investment will greatly expand the rental offer, not to mention create over 600 jobs."
Normand Bélanger, President and Chief Executive Officer, Fonds immobilier de solidarité FTQ
"Choosing District Griffin means choosing to live in a charming, vibrant neighbourhood that is undergoing a massive transformation and that is within easy reach of services and downtown. Our goal when designing these two phases of L'Hexagone was to create a haven for Montrealers, cyclists, runners and hikers by building near Old Montréal, the Lachine Canal and the Atwater market. We're proud to partner with the Fonds immobilier to diversify the housing offer in this highly sought after Montréal neighbourhood."
