BROSSARD, QC, Jan. 24, 2017 /CNW Telbec/ - Quartier DIX30 is excited to announce that Groupe Germain Hotels is opening a new hotel on site, in 2018—the first Canadian location for its new, four star Alt+ banner. This new hotel will build on the success of the Alt Hotel which has been located at the property for a decade. The Alt+ Quartier DIX30 Hotel will be located in the 16-storey mixed-use building currently under construction in Quartier DIX30's Square.
ANOTHER FLAGSHIP ADDRESS IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD
"We are pleased to welcome this new and exciting establishment in the image of Groupe Germain Hotels' spirit of innovation and savoir-faire," said Marilyn Cormier, General Manager of Gestion Quartier DIX30 L.P.—owned and managed in partnership by Oxford Properties Group and Carbonleo. "This is the first Alt+ Hotel in the country and it's a perfect fit for the Quartier DIX30 experience, an urban district where one can find, day or night, must-stop hot spots (+300 destinations filled with fashion, well-being, deco and techno products, restaurants and gourmet stores, outings and entertainment). "
Levels 2 to 6 of the new building will house Class A office space (107,000 sq. ft.), while the ground floor (10,000 sq. ft.) will showcase boutiques and restaurants and the Alt+ Hotel lobby. An underground walkway will also provide direct access to the indoor mall and adjacent heated indoor parking.
The new four-star hotel will occupy the building's top nine floors (95,000 sq. ft.). The 168 spacious guest rooms will be complemented by unique services, including valet parking, room service, a gym, inspiring meeting rooms and much more.
"We're pleased to launch Alt+, the new Groupe Germain Hotels banner in the effervescent Quartier DIX30," said Christiane Germain, Co-president of Groupe Germain Hotels. "With our knowledge of this market, the Alt+ Quartier DIX30 Hotel will certainly meet the needs of travellers from across the province and beyond with its unique offering of spacious rooms and many amenities."
A NATURAL GATHERING PLACE
The new building will add to the dynamic densification of the area and build on the overall Quartier DIX30 "Live, Work and Play" concept echoed throughout the urban and real estate planning.
Already under construction, this building is designed to achieve LEED Canada Core and Shell Certification. A new urban park will also break ground nearby.
