REAL ES­TATE PROJECT

Le Qu­a­trième: dig­ging starts soon

Montreal Gazette - - NEW HOMES + CONDOS - JOEL CEAUSU

The 225,000-square-foot project south of Bouchard Ave. is a log­i­cal ex­ten­sion of the pre­vi­ous phases of this Dor­val hous­ing de­vel­op­ment trans­form­ing the neigh­bour­hood be­tween High­way 20 and Lac StLouis.

“We’ve fol­lowed the evo­lu­tion of our clients,” said Mark Gian­nan­drea, sales di­rec­tor for Le Qu­a­trième, where crews out­side are fin­ish­ing the in­fra­struc­ture in an­tic­i­pa­tion of dig­ging that be­gins in a mat­ter of days.

Across the road lies Es­pace MV3 Col­lec­tion which, along with Le Qu­a­trième and the MV2 and MV1 be­fore it, helps en­tice thou­sands of peo­ple into this sec­tor, chang­ing the de­mo­graph­ics of this ag­ing com­mu­nity in Dor­val bor­der­ing La­chine.

“We’ve seen a per­son buy his first small condo, then meet a woman, and they buy a big­ger one. Now they are start­ing a fam­ily and are com­ing across the road to pur­chase a town­house. It’s hap­pen­ing a lot since we started in 2009,” Gian­nan­drea said. “Peo­ple are stay­ing in this neigh­bour­hood we cre­ated.”

Le Qu­a­trième is a mixed of­fer — six sin­gle-fam­ily homes, 39 town­houses in five phases, three six­plexes, and two condo build­ings of five and eight storeys, re­spec­tively, for a to­tal of 265 units on an ex­clu­sive cul-de-sac, and com­plet­ing a to­tal 1,000 new ad­dresses in the sec­tor.

Fi­nanced by pri­vate in­vest­ment fund Ipso Facto and the Fonds im­mo­bilier de sol­i­dar­ité FTQ, the project has at­tracted the at­ten­tion of a di­verse ros­ter of buy­ers with the first two phases of town­houses sold out and to be de­liv­ered in Novem­ber and Fe­bru­ary, re­spec­tively. (Phase 3 sales open in a few weeks.)

While the con­do­mini­ums at MV3 are al­most half-sold (rang­ing in price from $179,000 to $425,000, park­ing and taxes in­cluded, and sched­uled for de­liv­ery in sum­mer 2017), the town­houses in Le Qu­a­trième are a big draw, Gian­nan­drea said.

“Sizes range from 1,886 up to 2,044 square feet, in­clud­ing a 528-square-foot mez­za­nine,” and are priced from $521,000 to $598,000 (tax in­cluded). Mez­za­nines are a pop­u­lar choice, he said, as their size of­fers op­por­tu­ni­ties for ex­pan­sive mas­ter bed­rooms with large bath­rooms and clos­ets, play­rooms, of­fice suites and more.

Next door to Académie Sain­teAnne, the units have air-con­di­tion­ing, a two-car garage and large 400-plus-square-foot ter­races which will en­joy abun­dant sunshine. A mix­ture of new and ma­ture trees line the prop­erty in a lot that is 40 per cent green space.

The homes are spa­cious with three bed­rooms, two bath­rooms, lots of win­dows for abun­dant nat­u­ral light, and a host of high-end fin­ish­ings.

All floors are hard­wood in nine avail­able fin­ishes, and bath­rooms and kitchens fea­ture quartz coun­ter­tops.

“It’s very de­sign-ori­ented,” Gian­nan­drea ex­plained, adding: “Open spa­ces, large win­dows, ev­ery­thing peo­ple want in a con­tem­po­rary town­house, min­i­mal­ist flush Euro­pean-style kitchens, and more. Our stan­dard fin­ish­ing is al­ready high-end.”

A re­fined, wel­com­ing en­trance will front Le Qu­a­trième, which opens onto what will be De L’Académie Ave., with bus stops at the door of the project and sit­u­ated a few min­utes from Dor­val train sta­tion, the STM ter­mi­nal, Lakeshore Rd. bike path and High­way 20, mak­ing it a com­muter’s dream lo­ca­tion.

“A lot of our buy­ers work down­town and liv­ing here means it take them 15 min­utes to get to work.”

Equally close, Gian­nan­drea said, is the Trudeau Air­port — but not too close.

“No, we are out of the flight path,” he said, laugh­ing. “In fact we are par­al­lel to it, so there are no fly­overs here. It’s very quiet and very pri­vate.”

Fees are $125 per month and in­clude full ac­cess to the Club Space to be lo­cated at the top floor of the new condo build­ing, com­plete with re­lax­ation lounge, spa, train­ing cen­tre and rooftop pool with

ex­quis­ite views of the lake.

Within walk­ing dis­tance of el­e­men­tary and se­condary schools, pub­lic parks, cy­cling paths, pub­lic tran­sit and mu­nic­i­pal and com­mer­cial ser­vices, the $72-mil­lion project is bank­ing on buy­ers seek­ing a na­ture-friendly en­vi­ron­ment that is min­utes from the down­town core.

Dor­val and La­chine do not dis­ap­point, with a mul­ti­tude of ac­tiv­i­ties as well as recre­ational, cul­tural and com­mu­nity fa­cil­i­ties in­clud­ing a ma­rina, water­front board­walk, yacht club, golf course, pub­lic mar­ket, as well as swim­ming pools and an arena.
