2020: A Look Back on a Busy Year

A New Corporate Identity, a New Address

To begin with, let us remember the creation of Cogir Development and Construction, a new entity that has risen from the merger of the Cogir Construction division with DevMcGill. Along the same lines, we have picked up our things and have moved into the offices of the magnificent Humaniti project, located at 385 Viger Street, in Montreal, in front of Place Riopelle.

Our team is now gathered under the same roof from which we are currently directing seven major projects in Montreal even as we are considering endeavours in Ontario and in the United States.

Recent Launch of Two New Large-Scale Projects:
In addition to the many undertakings currently under way, we have recently launched two great projects in the heart of the city. Imperia Condominiums in the Quartier des Spectacles, and Le Newman in Angrignon/LaSalle are already proving to be quite successful.

With its contemporary look designed by Provencher_Roy, the Imperia Condominium project (in which DevMcGill, Omnia and Quebecor are the main partners) will feature 221 units and will be adjacent to the famed Imperial Cinema. Its elegance is rivalled only by its spectacular appearance.

Even larger, Le Newman, which will contribute to the revitalization of its Angrignon/LaSalle District, will include nearly 1,000 units consisting of condominiums, rental condos and apartments for active retirees.

Launch of Subsequent Phases in Existing Projects

Breaking News About Humaniti Montreal

Humaniti Montreal Wins the 2020 Design Habitat Grand Prize for Its Model Penthouse!
In late November, competing against some 15 other finalists, the breathtaking, recently staged model penthouse was awarded the prestigious Design Habitat Grand Prize – Furnished model unit category – more than $750,000. The entire Humaniti Montreal team is quite proud of this award that recognizes the commitment to quality and the desire to excel which have been the hallmarks of the whole project. Jessica Puglisi, designer and the Humaniti program’s project manager, together with Renée Benhaïm, engineer and the Humaniti program’s project director, both of whom were responsible for the model penthouse’s layout, sought to finely harness this majestic space occupying more than 2,200 s.f. on the residential tower’s 38th floor. Carefully laid out furnishings, chosen among Roche Bobois’s many collections, create an embracing aura. Selected artwork and accessories appropriately complete this inspired setting.

Avril: A Gourmet Food Store at Your Disposal
We are delighted to announce that the renowned Avril chain will open a gourmet food store on the ground floor of Humaniti’s commercial section. Avril is an independent health food store chain in the Province of Quebec which offers a unique concept and 100% natural alternatives.

WELL Pre-Certification
Moreover, Humaniti’s rental condos have recently received the WELL Pre-Certification. Let us not forget that the WELL® certification program is the first of its kind to focus exclusively on the health and well-being of individuals affected by the built-up environment. The goal for WELL® is to solve problems that have an impact on the occupants’ health, comfort and consciousness through design, operations and behaviour. The next step is for the IWBI (International WELL Building Institute) to soon appoint laboratories for the analysis of factors such as air and water quality according to high and strict standards.

Showing an Ability to Adapt
In other respects, faced with the pandemic, we have been able to appropriately adapt and ensure that all measures leading to an acquisition (visits, floor plan selection, bank loans, document and deed of sale execution) could virtually be carried out.

Stay tuned. New projects will be taking shape soon.
