PHASE 2 OF YUL CONDOS
‘...The second tower will help position YUL as one of the most prestigious addresses in Montreal’
Located in the heart of Montreal’s downtown core on René-Lévesque Blvd. W., the YUL Condominium development is leaving its mark on the city’s skyline with two 38-storey residential towers. The first phase of the project launched in November 2014 and is nearly sold out, with delivery expected in June. The second phase officially launched on March 25.
A joint venture by Brivia Group and Tianco Group, the project will consist of 800 condos, including studio, one-, two-, and threebedroom units, penthouses, and 17 townhouses upon completion. Condos will be priced from $208,900 for a studio to $2 million for a penthouse, and townhouses will start at $1.8 million.
“YUL is one of the largest luxury residential skyscraper complexes currently under construction in Montreal,” said Kheng Ly, president and CEO of Brivia Group and YUL Condominiums Inc. “We believe it will be a landmark project that truly stands out and truly represents the top-notch design and construction capability of Quebec in residential developments.”
With its nine-foot ceilings and floor-to-ceiling glass walls, YUL condos feature impressive unobstructed views of the St. Lawrence River and Mount Royal, and allow for a staggering amount of natural light in all living spaces. Units will also come equipped with several high-end inclusions, such as Italian-made Scavolini kitchens, five appliances, and a smart-home system which allows owners to control features such as lighting and temperature through an app on their smartphones. There are about 40 different condo models available, and some units may be fully customized to meet individual buyers’ tastes.
In terms of amenities, the developers have opted to include several perks aimed at bettering buyers’ quality of life. Specifically, YUL will feature a glassed-in, fully equipped gym facing Mackay St., a 60-foot lap pool, and a 23,000-square-foot private courtyard behind the towers with an outdoor four-season Scandinavian-style bath.
“We also offer an exceptional 360-degree view of Montreal from the Sky Lounge on the 38th floor, two dining rooms for events, a multifunctional fitness room, and a modern terrace on the sixth floor overlooking the private garden,” Ly said. “Also, all of our common areas are furnished by Armani/ Casa.”
Combined with the high-end units, these amenities are hugely attractive to a range of buyers.
“It’s the only condominium project to offer a 23,000-square-foot garden downtown,” said Mike Iasenza, who purchased a condo in Phase 1. “Before buying my unit, I did research and compared different projects, and YUL was the perfect choice because it offers superior value for your money.”
Its location smack downtown doesn’t hurt either. In fact, being situated in the city’s core gives buyers access to just about everything they might need.
“It’s a vibrant neighbourhood that includes all essential services, such as Lucien L’Allier métro station, cafés, fast food and fine dining restaurants, movie theatres, gyms, and more,” Ly said. “It’s within walking distance to work, study and play, so it’s attractive to anyone looking for the dynamic, convenient and luxury downtown lifestyle. We have a good mix of clientele with different backgrounds, including professionals, young families, empty nesters looking to downsize, university or postgraduate students, and even their parents.”
The project is also close to major universities, the financial sector, hospitals, and provides easy access to other parts of the city.
“The proximity to the downtown core and the quality of the build are some of the reasons why I chose to buy a condo in the project,” Iasenza said. “For me, it’s by far the best project right now in Montreal.”
The architecture firm Menkès Shooner Dagenais LeTourneux, in collaboration with Stefano Domenici Architect, developed the unique structural concept for YUL, and Magil Construction is handling the build.
“Its design significantly sets it part from numerous other projects,” Ly said, “and its style, elegance and luxuriousness will ensure the city shines on the international stage.
“The construction of the second tower will help position YUL as one of the most prestigious addresses in Montreal.”
