DevMcGill and TGTA are proud to announce the Castelnau IV project is completed, and residents will be moving in shortly. Located in the neighbourhood of Villeray, the Castelnau IV is the crowning jewel of DevMcGill’s operations and serves as an inspiration to all the other real estate projects in the city.
The neighbourhood of Villeray has undergone a beautiful transformation over the past few years, as old buildings have been gutted, while new construction towers have been erected.
The Castelnau IV project dates back to 2011, where an old beaux-arts heritage building from 1921 was gentrified to fuse modernity with antiquity, creating an interesting result that’s attracted buyers from around the globe. Records indicate the structure dates back to 1921 and used to be a part of the Institut des Sourds-Muet, which housed blind and deaf individuals who worked as artisans. There’s certainly a strong historical element that’s omnipresent and respectfully preserved.
In tandem with this restoration project, DevMcGill expanded by constructing adjacent structures on Gary Carter Street. These edifices are even closer to Jarry Park, which provides a slice of greenery in the midst of the urban concrete jungle. Therefore, buyers had the option of choosing between the historical option and the brand new one.
In March 2017, DevMcGill and TGTA proudly announced the commencement of the Ateliers Castelnau project. The construction is taking place in the Mile-Ex area, which is located just north of the Plateau-Mont-Royal.
Approximately ten years ago, the district was virtually unknown, as old factory and warehouses dotted the landscape. But, as rent prices increased around the city, people began to look for new opportunities in other areas. This also coincided with the fact that several technology giants set up shop nearby, making the Mile-Ex fertile ground for redevelopment.
Fast-forward to 2017, and it’s one of the leading communities in the city, with Vogue calling it “the hidden Montreal neighbourhood that’s winning over the creative set.” This is due to the new trend of artists leaving the Plateau-Mont-Royal and purchasing property in this area, creating an avant-garde state of living.
There’s also an emerging culinary scene that’s attracting food critics from around the country. Some worthy restaurants and bars include Manitoba, La Diplomate, Alexandraplatz, and Le Ritz PDB, which offer a truly alluring experience.
An old printing plant is also incorporated into the construction project, meaning buyers will be living in a contemporary condo imbued with a heritage site. This makes the Ateliers Castelnau development truly distinctive considering there aren’t other real estate endeavours like this on the island of Montreal.
Half of the phase 1 units are already sold, demonstrating how this project is the most enticing on the market. If you’re considering a move in the near future, contact a sales representatives at (514) 900-2290 and check out the Ateliers Castelnau website for more details.
