Percy Robertson - Golden Square Mile Condos & Townhouses



Je viens de tomber sur ce projet de rénovation et de construction en fond de cour de ACDF. Sur google.maps, on peut voir le chantier. Aucune idée si tout est terminé aujourd'hui. Le site indique toujours que le projet est en construction.

Condos are luring the ultra-rich to downtown Montreal

These luxury condos are convincing wealthy buyers to trade in their multimillion-dollar mansions for a new kind of lifestyle.


Updated: November 2, 2019

Cranes and orange cones dominate downtown Montreal. The city is in the midst of remaking itself — tearing up pothole-filled roads and replacing crumbling concrete overpasses, adding segments to the REM lines that will snake through the suburbs, building bridges, and adding to the growing forest of condo towers.

Condos used to be considered a runner-up option for buyers who couldn’t afford a house, but times have changed. A new breed of buildings is luring ultra-wealthy buyers to trade in their multimillion-dollar mansions for a new kind of lifestyle — which, in some cases, costs even more than owning a comparable detached home.According to Don Kottick, CEO of Sotheby’s International Realty Canada, luxury condos are growing in appeal for many buyers shopping for top-tier real estate.

“Montreal is very vibrant. A couple of years ago, condos weren’t that attractive, and now they’ve become a critical piece of the buying equation,” Kottick said. “There’s been a lot of learning that has happened. The whole lifestyle of a condo has changed.”

Pretty much every condo mega-project now boasts one or more roomy penthouses with a swanky rooftop patio and the option for a private pool. Yet when it comes to true luxury, realtor Liza Kaufman said, many of the most discerning buyers prefer smaller, more exclusive projects.

Unlike most condo towers, which are topped by one or more spacious penthouses but have smaller, less expensive units stacked on the bottom, ultra-luxe condos like those found in the Four Seasons, the Ritz and other tony buildings have no entry-level option. That’s a major part of the appeal, Kaufman said.

“People like exclusivity and they don’t want too much action and activity. They want peace and quiet where they live,” she said. “The carrying cost for properties like that are much higher, but these are people who can afford it. If you can afford it, you want to buy it. You want something rare and exclusive.”

The new breed of luxury condos offers a sleek, clutter-free look that Kaufman said appeals to many sellers ready to downsize from their more traditional wood-and-stone mansions.

Paired with the promise of a lower-maintenance, worry-free property that will be secure when homeowners are away travelling, high-end condos are looking more appealing than they used to for her multimillion-dollar clients, she said.

For Yves Gougoux, a client of Kaufman, the idea of downsizing from his $6-million Westmount estate into a condo held little appeal at first. But, unexpectedly, he fell in love with one. Up went the for-sale sign.

The project that seduced Gougoux to make the move from Westmount to Golden Square Mile is the Percy Robertson, a converted former monastery with just nine condominium units and five townhomes. He expects to move in next spring.

Gougoux said the Percy Robertson reminded him of the type of elegant old-meets-new flats popular in London or Manhattan.

“When I saw the opportunity, I jumped on it, because it’s a unique project with a flavour and taste we don’t usually see in Montreal. It’s a landmark in Montreal. These buildings are quite rare,” Gougoux said. “In my mind I could not see myself going into a tall tower that is populated very densely. A tower is a tower is a tower. You have a view, but that’s pretty much all you have.”

On 3456-58 de la Musee they have built a large extension that connects to both mansions. Listed as "Luxury Condos Downtown" with "nine Luxury condominiums and five townhomes" ready for late 2019. (a little late?).

"An extraordinary collection limited to only nine Luxury condominiums
and five townhomes, the Percy Robertson affords its residents an uncompromised lifestyle.

Built in 1909 for Montreal financial magnate Mr. Robert Cowans by renowned architects E and W.S Maxwell, the Percy Cowans house stands as a hallmark of Neoclassical Design. By preserving its facade and accentuating its architectural elements including its cornices, symmetrical openings and red brick, the finished building is set to be nothing short of a visual masterpiece. Inside, both visitors and residents will experience five newly designed units inspired by the original Victorian details all the while benefiting from the modern comfort and finishes sought after by today’s buyers. Price upon request (from$2.250M-$2.9M)

Je crois qu'il y a 2 fils pour le même projet. De plus, j'ai l'impression que le nom de Percy-Robertson condos & Townhouses ne tient plus. Il faut aussi ajouter que le projet ne progresse pas très vite, c'est plutôt lent.

Donc à fusionner avec celui-ci:

C'est moi où c'est une constante dans BEAUCOUP de projets en ce moment? Même des projets habités aussi sont laissés un peu en suspend pour terminer la finition, l'aménagement, etc...
