Developer’s third design for riverside condo project up for approval

Preliminary approval has been granted to a Montreal developer who wants to build a condominium complex in Pierrefonds-Roxboro alongside the Maison Joseph Théorêt and facing Rivière des Prairies.

 

At a special borough council meeting June 19, council unanimously adopted a draft bylaw to rezone three lots on Gouin Blvd. at Aumais St. so that the Vered Group could build a 115-unit, six-story condominium alongside the heritage home recognized by Montreal’s Conseil de Patrimoine.

 

The draft bylaw is now expected to come up for a second vote at another special borough council meeting, August 5, at which point, if passed, the bylaw would pave the way for the project could to go forward, at least, in theory.

 

On Tuesday, André Giguere said he and other neighbours of the proposed project plan to request the borough open a register that could in effect tie up, if not halt, the condo project entirely, should sufficient number of neighbours sign it and signal their opposition to the project.

 

Johanne Palladini, a borough spokesperson said on Tuesday once a register is opened, area residents would be given a specified day to sign it.

 

If the project is opposed by a certain percentage of area residents, determined by the number of electoral voters, Palladini said, the borough would be forced to hold a costly, borough-wide referendum on the project.

It does look like a nice development. Thing is with St Jean, it is nearly a nightmare during most hours of the day.

Une belle proposition ici en comparaison aux horreurs qui se sont baties dans le passé. En passant, j'avais acheté un maison toute neuve dans un developement à l'ouest de Pierrefonds, et j'avais fait un excellent profit en la revendant 5 ans plus tard. Un bon endroit pour faire de l'argent dans l'immobilier. Ca continue à se développer.

      Le jeudi 9 octobre 2014, en présence de la mairesse de la Ville de Longueuil, Madame Caroline St-Hilaire, de Madame France Dubé, conseillère à la Ville de Longueuil, de Monsieur Mathieu Duguay, président Société de gestion Cogir, de l’équipe de Jazz Longueuil, des cadres de Société de gestion Cogir et des résidents de Jazz Longueuil, se tenait la cérémonie de pelletée de terre protocolaire marquant le début de la construction de la tour II de la résidence privée pour aînés JAZZ Longueuil. Du même coup, la capsule temporelle contenant divers objets et souvenirs des résidents actuels de Jazz Longueuil a été scellée officiellement. Cette capsule sera installée dans la structure de béton de la tour II avec à son bord, à tout jamais, une petite partie de l'âme des résidents de la phase I.
       
      Résidence importante située au cœur de Longueuil, Jazz Longueuil s’agrandit pour accueillir une clientèle d’aînés autonomes de l’agglomération et ses environs. En plus d’offrir plus de 180 nouveaux logements au look contemporain, cette nouvelle résidence offrira des services à valeurs ajoutées à sa clientèle existante et future. Ce projet d’agrandissement, nécessitant un investissement de près de 30 millions de dollars, créera jusqu’à 26 nouveaux emplois. Située face à l’Hôpital Pierre-Boucher et à proximité de tous les services, la résidence Jazz Longueuil était louée à pleine capacité depuis quelques années. L’ajout de la tour II permettra d’offrir des opportunités de location à plusieurs aînés de la grande région qui désirent goûter à l’expérience Jazz.

      Quartier Concordia
       
      Quartier Concordia will transform the Sir George Williams campus from a collection of scattered buildings into a welcoming and cohesive urban campus in the area bordered generally by Sherbrooke, Guy, René-Lévesque, and Bishop.
      The goals of the Quartier Concordia project include improving the use of outdoor spaces, stimulating street life, and providing respite for the Concordia community and the public. The project will optimize vehicular and bicycle traffic as well as pedestrian flow, facilitate movement between campus buildings, and ensure the safe interaction of vehicles and pedestrians. Quartier Concordia will also maintain a welcoming environment for the Concordia community and the public, highlight landmarks, improve the use of space, promote the display of artwork and create a distinct campus environment within the downtown core.
      The project will be carried out over several years by Groupe Cardinal Hardy and in conjunction with the City of Montreal.

      Nous sommes fiers de vous annoncer que le promoteur DevMcGill et ses partenaires ont remporté un concours public de la Ville de Montréal leur permettant de donner vie à un nouveau projet de condominiums très attendu, le 30 St-Jacques. Situé sur l’un des très rares terrains vacants et développables du Vieux-Montréal, le 30 St-Jacques est voisin de la Place d’Armes, un secteur qui figure parmi les plus remarquables en Amérique du Nord grâce à son architecture. Environ 150 nouvelles résidences, dotées de commodités enviables, sont prévues sur ce site convoité depuis des années par de nombreux promoteurs. À un coin de rue de la station de Métro Place d’Armes et d’un accès à la ville souterraine de Montréal (RÉSO), les futurs résidents de cette copropriété pourront se rendre sans voiture et à l’abri des intempéries, à des milliers de commerces, services et entreprises. Il s’agit là d’un des rares développements de condominiums de Montréal à s’être vu accorder une note parfaite, soit de 100 %, sur le site Web indépendant « WalkScore.com ». Ce dernier compare l’arrondissement à un réel paradis pour le piéton.

      Ahead: A brighter horizon for Cabot Square
      Plans due; Downtown area in search of an identity
       
      Source: The Gazette
       
      Cty councillor Karim Boulos is standing in the Canadian Centre for Architecture, airing his optimism over a scale model of what is known as "the Cabot Square area" - a part of the Peter McGill district he represents.
       
      But the Cabot Square area is also a stretch of Ste. Catherine St. that makes many Montrealers wince.
       
      The thoroughfare between Lambert Closse and Chomedey Sts. has been this city's version of a picture of Dorian Gray, a pastiche of boarded-up storefronts, crumbling facades and grafitti that seems to have spread while other neighbourhoods renewed themselves.
       
      However, by this time next Monday, Boulos and the rest of the city will get a bigger glimpse of what might happen to the piece of downtown that's been in search of an identity for nearly a generation. That's when three teams of architects and urban planners will submit their versions of what should be done to revive the Cabot Square area.
       
      Boulos, Ville Marie borough mayor Benoit Labonté and members of an alliance of neighbourhood businesses and residents met the press yesterday to detail the attempts to revitalize the neighbourhood.
       
      The planning teams were formed after a collection of 25 business, property owners and residents' associations started the Table de concertation du centre-ville ouest.
       
      "The properties may be empty but the owners are still paying taxes," Boulos said. "They haven't left, they're waiting to see what's going to happen."
       
      The plans submitted by the teams will be judged by a jury that includes architect and Harvard professor Joan Busquest, Dinu Bumbaru of Heritage Montreal and founding director Phyllis Lambert of the Canadian Centre for Architecture.
       
      The successful submission will form the basis for an urban plan that will produced by the borough and submitted to public consultations.
       
      Boulos suggests that if everything goes well, changes in the district might begin "by this fall."
       
      And for Lambert, whose architectural centre sprawls across the neighbourhood's southern edge, change is what's needed for a district that spent decades losing more than it's gained.
       
      "Over the last years, this area has deteriorated miserably," she said. "There used to be the Forum and all those stores where the Faubourg (Ste. Catherine) is. ... But it just goes down the drain further and further.
       
      "Then there's the block ... just to the east of the Forum with the (Seville) theatre on it, which has been boarded up for years.
       
      "And this just destroys the whole area. People have no respect (for the neighbourhood), and why would you? People just walk down the street and it's so miserable."
       
      Lambert's nephew, Stephen Bronfman, is chairman of Claridge Inc., an investment company that owns the Seville Theatre block.
       
      Asked in October about the condition of the block, Lambert told The Gazette: "It is coming along. Slowly, but we are working closely with the city and other landlords in the area. It takes time to do properly."
       
      Labonté says a development project for the Seville block is under study by the borough's urban committee. Boulos has said in earlier interviews that a private investor plans to turn the block into student residences.
       
      "What I can tell you about this project," Labonté said, "is that that there will be lots of room for students - especially for Concordia University - and the design of the building will be quite impressive. ... I'm pretty confident this project at the Seville Theatre will start the renewal of this leg of Ste. Catherine St."
       
      A decision by the borough on which development plan will be used is expected in May. But final approval will rest with the city's executive committee.
       
      In the meantime, Montrealers and the people who own the storefronts that make them wince wait to see what's going to happen.
