A new mixed-use community is coming to the LaSalle borough of Montreal, featuring a mix of local amenities, sustainable construction and an expanse of green space. Called “Le Newman”, the development will include three distinct residences: a rental apartment, a condo, and a residence for active retirees. More than half of the 20,000 square-metre lot will be devoted to nature, terraces and paths.
Located a few streets from Angrignon Park in the LaSalle borough, the project will offer 950 residential units in total. The community is being developed by Cogir Real Estate in partnership with Welltower and designed by NEUF architects.
With each building ranging in height from 14 to 16 storeys, the aim of the project is to transform Western Angrignon District of LaSalle into an attractive, mixed and dynamic community.
According to the official press release, “The sector’s revitalization will be a function, in part, of an integrated mixed-use neighbourhood. With this in mind, outdoor green spaces will be laid out, and they will feature some community equipment for the project. The large paved surfaces (which used to exist on the site) will be removed and there will be a clear preference for materials that have a low volatile organic compound (VOC) content. The development of space that promotes sound waste management will, of course, comply with the LaSalle borough standards.”
The official launch will take place next October.
