Développements Symphonia recently held an official groundbreaking ceremony to kick off construction of Symphonia POP, a condominium development featuring modular architecture to be built on the southern tip of Nuns’ Island in Montreal. The $100 million development features 207 units, ranging in size from 600 to 3,000 square feet, and is already 65 per cent sold, with the first units expected to be delivered by 2021.
The concept for the project is part of Développements Symphonia’s strategic development plan for the southern tip of Nuns’ Island, a region that will be transformed by improved road access and public transit network, including the new Champlain Bridge and the REM light-rail station.
“The project is a beacon for the renewal of the southern tip of Nuns’ Island,” said Kevin Robinson, general manager of Développements Symphonia, in a press release. “The tower will become an emblem for the borough and even for the city of Montréal. With its bold design and avant-garde look, Symphonia POP truly marks a turning point in the area’s modernization.”
The building features superimposed cubes, or “pops,” on its exterior, designed by Provencher_Roy, and features panoramic views of the St. Lawrence River, as well as views of an urban cityscape.
“We’ve given the project an innovative, modern and bright character that stands out like a lighthouse in the middle of the neighbourhood,” added Roch Cayouette, architect and partner at Provencher_Roy.
Other features and amenities of Symphonia POP include indoor and outdoor pools and Jacuzzis, a sauna and steam bath, round-the-clock security, a meeting room with a full kitchen available for all residents, a 24-hour gym, a yoga room, a games room, a pool room, indoor parking and electric vehicle charging stations.
