Ground has officially been broken for the $111 million Phase 2 of the Auguste & Louis project in Quartier des Lumieres in Montreal. The 21-floor building at the intersection of Rene-Levesque Boulevard East and Beaudry Street, on the site of the former CBC/Radio-Canada tower, will include 253 condominium units from project partners Groupe Devimco, Fonds immobilier de solidarite FTQ and Fiera Real Estate.
This second phase is part of a major $1.15 billion real estate project that will bring 2,200 condominium units as well as commercial space to Quartier des Lumieres. The first units of this phase are scheduled for delivery in 2025.
“Groupe Devimco is extremely proud to contribute to Montreal’s economic vitality by investing a total of nearly $1.15 billion for the construction of 2,200 residential units in this historic neighbourhood that promises to become a beacon of the city,” said James Goulet, partner at Groupe Devimco. “The Quartier des Lumieres will redefine the landscape of the Ville Marie borough, and we are particularly excited to contribute to building this unique living environment for Montrealers.”
“We are excited to begin Phase 2 of this landmark project for Montreal, which promises to modernize the historic Faubourgs area at the gateway to downtown. This second phase is part of a mixed-use real estate project that spans 4 million sq. ft., including more than 2,000 residential units, 1 million sq. ft. of office space and close to 230,000 sq. ft. of commercial space,” said Pierre Pelletier, head of real estate development and financing at Fiera Real Estate.
