MONTREAL, Nov. 3, 2011 /CNW Telbec/ - Mr. Alan Marcovitz, President of
the Westcliff Group, the largest private real estate company in Quebec,
attended a groundbreaking ceremony this morning, inaugurating the
construction of its flagship tower as part of the Nuns' Island
Symphonia project. In attendance was Verdun Mayor, Claude Trudel, among
other distinguished guests.
The first Symphonia tower will comprise 25 floors and 171 luxury
condominiums. Located only a few minutes from downtown Montreal,
Symphonia stands on the Island's southern tip: the most prestigious
area of Nuns' Island. "The first phase of Symphonia will generate almost 70 million dollars in
investment and will create over 1,000 jobs on Nuns' Island. We believe
that this development will be very beneficial for the entire community,
with tax benefits of over 1 million dollars yearly." said Mr. Marcovitz.
Symphonia is an Eco-Friendly project that was designed to preserve
adjacent natural surroundings and to optimize the relationship between
the building, its residents, and the environment. It will be built to
strict environmental standards, including the use of recycled and
locally-sourced materials, as well energy-efficient air conditioning
and heating systems.
Westcliff's reputation is based on 40 years of experience in
development, construction and management of major real estate projects
in Canada and the United States. Supported by a team of over 500
people, including 100 professionals headquartered in Montreal,
Westcliff has a proven track record when it comes to its ability to
identify and develop real estate projects with growth potential. The
company recently partnered on the spectacular Beauxarts tower, a 20
storey architectural masterpiece on Sherbrooke Street, as well as
contributing to the residential development of Nuns' Island.
