The Brivia Group, a Montreal-based real estate developer and investor, has announced the launch of NEST Condos, a new project slated to rise in downtown Montreal at 1198 Crescent St., at the corner of René-Lévesque Blvd.
The 11-storey, 97-unit residential building will offer suites in studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom configurations, with units ranging in size from 265 to 970 square feet. Residents will have access to a fitness centre, lounge, ground-floor backyard, three-storey indoor parking lot and storage lockers, among other amenities. The project will also include two commercial areas.
The all-in-one-space concept is relatively new to Montreal, and is characterized by units of reduced square-footage, generally in studio configurations. These units feature furnishings that are adapted for the space, such as fold-away beds, which will be included in studio units and available on demand in units of one or more bedrooms. NEST Condos’ contemporary architectural concept was created by Marco Manini Architecte, with construction to be carried out by EBC.
“We are proud to add a new condominium project to our portfolio on an iconic street like Crescent St.,” said Kheng Ly, president of the Brivia Group, in a press release. “We are certain that the future owners of NEST Condos will be enchanted by this vibrant, cosmopolitan street known for its many restaurants and hip, fashionable shops.”
NEST Condos is Brivia Groups third real estate project in downtown Montreal. The first, YUL Condominiums, features two 38-storey towers and 17 townhomes. The second, Stanbrooke, is a 19-storey rental building featuring 178 apartment units.
Units in the NEST Condos development went on sale to the public and brokers on June 13. Construction is scheduled to be completed in 2019.
