A Welcoming Response From Montrealers to DevMcGill’s New Condominium Project: Univers
MONTREAL, Aug. 23, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ – DevMcGill(®), an award-winning Montreal developer with 15 years of experience in the
development of condominiums, is pleased to announce the arrival of
Univers, a major multi-phase, mixed-use condominium community located
in Montreal’s International Business District.
Just steps away from Square Victoria and bordered by the streets of
St-Jacques, Notre-Dame and Gauvin, Univers proposes stunning
architecture and high-rise condominium living with lifestyle commercial
spaces on the ground floor. The project also offers access to the
largest underground network in the world, Montreal’s famous Underground
City, and of course Montreal’s subway system. Univers will offer a
variety of living spaces ranging in price from $150,000 to $5 million.
The concepts for the floor plans, the amenities as well as the prices
have just recently been revealed to a list of registered guests. Within
4 days of the announcement, 125 people had already acquired a VIP
Certificate at a cost of $1,000 in order to benefit from priority
selection of the units when the sales are launched.
Reflecting on the current condo market in Montreal, StÃ©phane CÃ´tÃ©,
president of DevMcGill had this to say: “Last week, the Housing Market Outlook for 2012-2013 for the Montreal region, published by the Canadian Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC), was
really encouraging especially considering the many varying opinions we
have heard in the last few months regarding the condo market. The
report notes that the construction of new condos will slow down a
little, which is good in order to avoid over supply. It also reveals
that resale prices will continue to rise and demand for condominium
homes will stay strong as the target clientele is steadily growing. I
have been developing condo projects for many years in Montreal and that
is what I like about this city: steady, reasonable growth over the
years, no big highs, no big lows. I know there are a lot of condos
being built right now but CMHC data shows that it is simply a shift in
demand. Fewer home buyers are opting for single-family homes and more
and more are choosing condos. I am not surprised to read positive news
about the condo industry as in 2012 DevMcGill’s projects sold very
well. Several new condo developments are currently being launched at
the same time; however, there is a possibility that some will not reach
their minimum number of sales in time to start their construction. The
latest overwhelming success of Univers is just another example that
there is a strong demand for units offering a great location and
something unique at a competitive price.”
Details of the new development will follow later but we already know
that the Univers condominium project will comprise more than 500 units.
Combining all these features on one site, Univers is a unique project:
Incredible access: Univers’ central location, right between downtown and Old Montreal, as
well as its proposal for a link to the Underground City and the Metro
system, will give residents easy and immediate access, rain or shine,
to work and more than 2000 downtown commercial destinations.
Urban effervescence or tranquility at will: Residents of Univers will benefit from a location that will allow them
to walk to all the action when the mood strikes or retreat to their
quiet condominium complex when they want to relax. Those who own a car
will be able to easily access and exit their immediate neighbourhood
even during peak traffic hours, during Montreal’s crowded festivals or
the many events presented at the Bell Centre.
Historical cachet: Living right on the border of Old Montreal, residents will be able to
enjoy the charming atmosphere of the ancestral city as well as easy
access on foot to the Old Port.
Nature on display: Univers will boast incredible green spaces including unique gardens on
the tiers of the buildings with draping vines and trees and a vast,
landscaped inner courtyard with mature trees and water features.
Resort-style amenities with no impact on condo fees: ‘Place Univers’ on the ground floor will offer a variety of incredible
‘Ã la carte’ lifestyle commercial spaces including a day spa, gym and
wellness centre. Condo fees will not be increased by these amenities;
these services will be owned and operated by third parties and will not
be the responsibility of the condo association.
DevMcGill’s VP of Marketing, Louis Conrad Migneault, further points out:
“In 2009, DevMcGill introduced the Interactive VIP Registration process
in Montreal and we have been using it successfully to develop all of
our condo projects. VIPs have a chance to influence and shape many
aspects of the master-plan as well as the design of the units. Later,
when the sales are launched, VIPs also benefit from priority selection
of the condos and discounted prices.”
