New condo project in Rockland
The snapping turtle and other wetland wildlife living next to the Outaouais Golf Course in Rockland will have some more new neighbours moving in soon. Future residents of a $25 million condominium project will have an excellent view of both the local wildlife and the local golf action.
The Domaine de Golf condo project is the development child of C.H. Clément Construction and project manager Mike Gervais expects to have clients settled into their new home units by next year.
“Today is a big day for us,” Gervais said during the Sept. 30 official ground breaking ceremony for the project. “People are going to start moving into the condos next spring.”
The three-year development project will result in erection of 114 condo units bordering along the front nine neighbourhood of the local golf course and close to County Road 17. Estimated at $25 million in investment value for the company, the target demographic for the project are people now either retired or semi-retired, who enjoy frequent travel.
“This (project) is more like buying into the lifestyle,” said Gervais, adding that the maintenance-free aspect of the condominium design and its home-comfort construction design features will prove attractive to either local residents who want to retire and stay in Rockland and to other potential clients from the Orléans-Ottawa area also in search of a comfortable home base for their new mobile retirement lifestyle.
“Rockland has all the amenities and the services that attract,” Gervais said, adding that the community has “price points that are attractive.”
Gervais noted that 30 of the units already have claims and he expects the remainder will be sold off well before the final unit is constructed.
