  1. Iceland-owned Primera Air is evaluating the addition of Washington D.C. and Montreal to its transatlantic network following strong sales on its upcoming routes to New York Newark, Boston and Toronto. “We’re definitely looking at more destinations … both in Canada and in America,” chief executive Hrafn Thorgeirsson tells me. “It would be either Washington [D.C.] or Montreal, or perhaps both. Those are the next two that I would expect to come out with a decision on for North America … I wouldn’t be surprised if we saw them coming in 2019.” He says that both Dulles Washington International Airport and Baltimore-Washington International Airport will be considered for the US route. Primera emerged as a player in the low-cost long-haul market this year by unveiling plans to serve New York Newark, Boston and Toronto from London Stansted and Birmingham in the UK, as well as Paris Charles de Gaulle in France. Those services will begin next summer. The airline has historically focused on charter traffic between Scandinavia and the Mediterranean, but is moving into the scheduled arena due to the rising popularity of self-booked holidays. “We saw around 2012 that the so-called charter markets, especially in the Nordic area, seemed very stagnant … whereas the rest of air travel was growing 4-7% a year,” Thorgeirsson says. “We could see that the other traditional charter airlines in Europe had either disappeared, or shrunk, or been incorporated into larger airline alliances.” Pressed on the selection of transatlantic routes specifically, he says the latest generation of narrow-bodies has been a “game-changer” for the industry both in terms of range and fuel efficiency. “We started looking at this about a year-and-a-half ago when we were approached both by Boeing and Airbus,” the chief executive recalls. “We did some calculations and we just thought, ‘Maybe we can take these across the pond. It wouldn’t really be that difficult’. “Looking at the [low-cost long-haul] market – seeing how much it’s changing and the new players coming in – if we didn’t get into the game now, in 2018, then we might miss the train. So we decided to take a chance.” Studies conducted by the airline found a 40-45% cost advantage on transatlantic routes for the next-generation Airbus A321LR versus the Boeing 757, a middle-of-the-market aircraft that ceased production in 2004. Current-generation 737s and A320s – the workhorses of most narrow-body fleets – struggle to cross the Atlantic with full payloads. Primera has ordered next-generation models from both Airbus and Boeing in order to scale up its operations quickly. Eight A321neos will be delivered in 2018, Thorgeirsson confirms, followed by ten MAX 9s in 2019. In 2020, the airline will induct a further eight MAX 9s plus two A321LRs. It currently deploys seven 737-800s and two -700s. If the transatlantic services prove popular, other lengthy sectors such as Kenya, Gambia, Cape Verde, India and the Persian Gulf will be considered from Europe. “We’re going to start on the transatlantic – get ourselves some good experience on long-range flights – and then definitely, if the traffic rights are in our favor, we will be moving east like we are moving west," the chief executive says.
  2. East meeting west is proving a winning formula for Devimco Immobilier’s condominium project in its Square Children’s mixed-use development. Devimco’s EstWest condo towers are part of the Square Children’s development in Montreal. (Rendering courtesy Devimco) The developer says it has sold more than 95 per cent of the 307 condos in EstWest‘s Est tower on the site of the former Montreal Children’s Hospital in downtown Montreal. As a result, it will move up sales of the second phase, the 320-unit West tower. There has been a huge public appetite for the condo project, says Marco Fontaine, director of sales and marketing at Devimco. Before the project’s official launch, “we created a website and many people registered to buy a condo or rent an apartment. In the first weeks after launching the project, we collected more than 2,000 names.” By the time the project launched, another 2,000 or so names had been collected. “We had a lineup and people who slept outside before the launch.” The $400-million Square Children’s site will eventually include about 1,400 residential units, including rentals and social housing. Devimco is partnering with the Fonds de solidarité FTQ – the investment fund of the FTQ trade union – and private investment firm Fiera Capital Corporation to complete the project. Located in Shaughnessy Village The Shaughnessy Village neighbourhood site is situated at Atwater Avenue and René-Lévesque Boulevard, near the Atwater Metro, Alexis Nihon Plaza shopping mall and the old Montreal Forum. It became available for construction when the Montreal Children’s Hospital moved westward a few years ago to the new Glen site of the McGill University Health Centre, which also includes the Royal Victoria Hospital, Montreal Chest Instituteand Shriners Hospital for Children. In June, after conducting public hearings on the project, the City of Montreal gave its go-ahead despite criticisms proposed towers were too tall and there were not enough units devoted to families. However, the city predicted many families would be willing to accept small two- to three-bedroom residences of 700 to 1,000 square feet for the convenience of living downtown. The Children’s Hospital, which had been at the site for more than a century, is being demolished. Only a nurses’ residence built in 1919 is being restored and integrated into the project. Demolition should wrap up at the end of March and construction of the Est condominium tower should begin by the beginning of 2019. Delivery is slated for spring 2020. Sales for the West tower will launch in early 2018 “and again we have lots of interest.” Between Westmount, downtown Montreal The two, 25-storey condominiums were dubbed EstWest, because they link nearby Westmount and downtown Montreal to the east. Design of the Est tower, located to the east, represents the Orient, New York and downtown Montreal, Fontaine says, while the West tower is inspired by Westmount and California to the west. The project has attracted buyers mainly living within a one-kilometre radius. “Westmount clients responded very well,” particularly empty nesters who want to sell their homes and live in a condo environment,” Fontaine says. Fontaine says there is a linguistic mix of about 55-45 per cent anglophones and francophones, many young professionals and Asians. (Nearby Ste. Catherine Street between Atwater Avenue and Guy Street has become a mini-Chinatown.) The project is not allowing Airbnb; it forbids daily rentals and requires minimum rentals of 30 days. Amenities include work lobby The two condo towers will be connected by a two-storey base area known as a “basilaire” that will contain an 11,000-square-foot training centre, indoor pool and games room. A Sky Lounge on the top floor of one of the towers will provide views of the city and Mount Royal. There will be a work lobby with USB outlets where self-employed residents can work. Prices for the West tower will be slightly higher than for the Est, given the time difference in construction and rate of inflation. Units will range in size from 270 to 1,833 square feet. Studios start at $200,000 taxes included, while units with two bedrooms sell for around $450,000. Two rental apartment towers will be built behind the EstWest condos, although the size of those buildings has not been finalized. Aside from the condos, rental apartments and social housing, the project will include a community centre and enlargement of an existing park called Henri-Dunant Park. It could eventually include a school, an office building or hotel but these parts of the development have not been finalized. Fontaine says the project will require seven or eight years to complete and will include social housing units managed by the city’s municipal housing office.

  7. 628 Saint-Jacques - 35 étages

    Sales brisk, Broccolini set to build luxury Montreal condos Danny Kucharsky | Property Biz Canada | 2017-11-21 Now that it is more than 80 per cent sold, Broccolini is slated to begin construction next year on its $150-million 628 St. Jacques luxury condo project across from Victoria Square in Old Montreal. Montreal’s Broccolini worked for several years to compile the parcels of land it required to build its 628 St. Jacques condos. (Rendering courtesy Broccolini) Most of the 258 units in the 35-storey condo sold within a few weeks after the project opened to the public last month. The building, located on the last parcel of redevelopment land available in the vicinity of Victoria Square, is scheduled to be completed in 2021. Prices start at about $330,000 plus taxes for a 470-square-foot unit and go as high as $4.8 million for a 4,000-square-foot penthouse. Jean Langlois, director of communications and marketing at Broccolini, is not surprised it is selling so quickly. “This is the epitome of location, location, location. It’s a beautiful spot.” “Premium” site straddles downtown, Old Montreal Langlois says the Victoria Square location “is a premium one – you’re both downtown and in Old Montreal at the same time. It’s kind of unique in Montreal as far as locations go. Everything’s there. It’s very lively during work hours, but on the weekend it’s so quiet. It really has it all.” He says the location across from the Tour de la Bourse (Stock Exchange Tower) called for something a bit more upscale so that “people who have it all can have it all. Sales were boosted with a marketing campaign with slogans like “Being able to walk to work . . . Now that’s luxury.” The tower will be art deco-inspired and will have a New York City feel, Langlois says. However, the ultimate goal is to have a new building that blends in well and looks like it could have been around for a long time, given the area’s eclectic mix of old and new. “There’s been some criticism that it’s not modern enough but I think it really sits well in its location. I think we managed to have the right balance.” “Really broad” mix of buyers The building will have a rooftop pool – which is being dubbed the tallest in the city – and sauna, as well as an amenities level with lounge, gym and green terrace. Units will have nine- to 13-foot high ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows. There will be a maximum of 10 units per floor and most units will have balconies. The building will have 112 parking spots. Buyers to date have been mostly Montrealers, aged 25 to 75. “The mix is really broad, including people who work in the area, investors and lots of owner-occupants,” Langlois says. Broccolini has been assembling the land that makes up the project for years. Last May, the developer announced it had acquired the last parcel at 630 St. Jacques St. The facade of a building that dates back to 1905 at the corner of St. Jacques and Gauvin Streets is being preserved and integrated into the building, while the former Toronto-Dominion Bank insurance building is being demolished. Long quest to assemble properties Part of the land had been slated for the Victoire condo project, which was proposed several years ago, but failed to get off the ground. That project was supposed to have about 20 storeys with only two penthouse-like units on each floor. “They offered tons of customization options, which is nice in theory but in reality very hard to do,” Langlois says. “We were finally able to buy the land from one of the creditors. It wasn’t simple to assemble all of those parcels to do a project that was more viable financially.” The 628 St. Jacques name for the condo “is part of that New York feel,” Langlois says. “There’s a lot of New York projects that have their address as the name of the project. We kind of went for that.” Broccolini owns 614 to 634 St. Jacques St. “so we kind of had our pick” for the address. “628 (St. Jacques) is a bit softer, a bit more poetic” than, say, 630. Broccolini, a 70-year-old family firm, has developed and built more than four million square feet of office space in the past 10 years. Among its other projects in Montreal, Broccolini recently completed the 50-storey L’Avenue, which has become the city’s tallest mixed-use building, and is building a new headquarters for Radio-Canada/CBC (see Broccolini begins building new Montreal CBC HQ).

    Its for the Montreal CMA. Quebecois is not defined, its anybody who felt that their ethnic origin is Quebecois and chose to put that on their census. It could be a 13th generation french-canadian as much as it could be a relatively new arriver that feels more of an attachment to Quebec that the country they came from.
