MONTRÉAL, Sept. 21, 2015 /CNW Telbec/ - Village living at its best! That's the image partners LSR GesDev, Sotramont and the Fonds immobilier de solidarité FTQ are looking to create with Vic&Lambert, the first building in Saint-Lambert seeking LEED® Gold certification.
Offering stunning views of the Saint Lawrence River and downtown Montréal, the Vic&Lambert project is designed to fit in perfectly with the lifestyle of Saint-Lambert residents. In fact, the name of the project evokes the spirit in which it was created. "Vic" refers to Victoria Street with its charming array of shops and restaurants, and "Lambert" to a friendly and welcoming community where people know and help each other out.
Designed to preserve the city's charm, this contemporary building will feature expansive windows to maximize natural light. The project will be located at 295 Riverside Street on a 26,715 square foot lot. The 8-storey building will consist of 43 condos, 7 penthouses and 78 indoor parking spaces. Each unit, ranging from 550 to 3,600 square feet, will have 9- to 11-foot ceilings, appliances, central air conditioning and high-end finishes. Condo owners will have access to a rooftop terrace, a gym, two elevators, bicycle storage areas and charging stations for electric cars.
"We're making quality our top priority not only in terms of construction but also in terms of providing a superb green living environment. We polled future buyers and based our design on their recommendations. The Vic&Lambert will offer a warm, inviting and luxurious place to call home, just steps from the village and 10 minutes by car to downtown Montréal. Because we have so many confirmed buyers, we should be able to start construction next spring," said LSR GesDev president Annie Lemieux.
"We strive for LEED® certification in all our projects, but this time we're aiming for Gold in order to reflect the values of future owners. The building will be extremely energy efficient and soundproofed. We will also use superior quality materials and give preference to Québec suppliers. For example, we will be using the Kalia brand for most of our plumbing fixtures," said in turn Marc-André Roy, president of Sotramont.
"By delivering such a high-quality product, this project is consistent with our socially responsible investment objectives and will create about a hundred jobs. We're proud to work with such dynamic and disciplined partners," concluded Normand Bélanger, President and CEO of the Fonds immobilier de solidarité FTQ.
