DevMcGill unveils its new condominium project: Beaumont. Attentive to their customers needs, the market demands and other comments received since the launch of the project, the developer, in association with Sobeys, decided to make positive adjustments to the project in order to improve the lifestyle quality of its residents and for future owners joining the big DevMcGill family.
A mixed-use real estate development, Beaumont will rise up on Côte-Saint-Luc Road, between Earnscliff and Clanranald Avenues, and will offer approximately 140 condominiums with 1 to 3 bedrooms, as well as penthouses. The project will also house a commercial space which will include an IGA grocery store, a tremendous asset for future residents. Beaumont will present architecture that harmonizes with the local urban landscape; a design featuring modern lines and contemporary materials. Construction is set to begin in 2016-2017.
Brilliant innovations for a better quality of life
After several months of working with its partner and the district, the developer is ready to unveil innovations built into the original design. The many improvements include; increasing the energy efficiency of the building, reducing construction costs and therefore better selling price, a large variety of plans, an architecture allowing a greater amount of sunshine in units, adding greenery on the rooftop terrace, a revision of the common areas to minimize the monthly condo fees and the withdrawal of the owners lounge, adding the benefit of a larger gym and a more spacious terrace.
Distinct architecture, unparalleled panoramic views, and exclusive common areas
To bring the project to life, DevMcGill is collaborating with Architect Firm RégisCôtéetAssociés and the designers team of Gauvreau Design. The reconfiguration of the two towers, to make one U-shaped tower, lightens the building structure while keeping a fully glazed section. Thanks to the height as well as a generous amount of windows, the units will offer unobstructed panoramic views that will extend as far as the St. Lawrence River and Lake St. Louis as well as Mount Royal, St. Joseph’s Oratory and the Laurentians. The abundance of glass, including the sleek glass railings for the balconies and terraces, will serve as a key architectural element for the project, complemented by other noble materials such as metal framing and lintels as well as decorative masonry work. Residents will benefit from a gym, underground parking, and exterior common areas: a pool with lounge chairs as well as a landscaped terrace with barbecues and relaxed seating areas.
An ideal location where services, amenities and green spaces are at your fingertips
The Notre-Dame-de-Grâce neighbourhood is highly valued for its quality of life and its unique charm, and especially for its many vast green spaces. Just a few steps from the project, Monkland Avenue – also known as Monkland Village and considered to be the heart of the neighborhood – offers residents direct access to many exclusive services: restaurants, cafés, bakeries, delicatessens, greengrocers and other specialty shops. Among these are the famous Japanese restaurant Mikado, the Ye Olde Orchard Irish pub, as well as Côte-St-Luc BBQ and Tavern Monkland, two veritable institutions in the neighbourhood. In fact, the project boasts a Walk Score of 90. Beaumont will also be close to the new McGill University Health Centre (MUHC) and will offer easy access to downtown and other Montreal neighborhoods thanks to the many public transportation options (Metro and several bus lines) and proximity to the majorthoroughfares.
Furthermore, the NDG neighbourhood is well-known for its streets lined with mature trees and its many vast parks, including NDG, Loyola and Trenholm Parks. Residents will have access to numerous outdoor amenities, including 19 km of bicycle paths, multiple playgrounds, sports fields, outdoor and indoor pools, not to mention many outdoor skating rinks and arenas. The borough is home to 50 private and public schools, including Collège Villa-Maria, as well as two universities. NDG also offers several cultural and community centres, libraries and so much more.
