Viva-Cité rental project breaks ground in Montreal

Friday, October 19, 2018

Habitations Trigone and its partner Fonds immobilier de solidarité FTQ recently broke ground on a new rental project, Viva-Cité Saint-Constant, aimed at adults 55-plus.

Viva-Cité Saint-Constant is ideally situated in Saint-Constant, just steps from the commuter train station and Lac des Fées, and across the street from a park and trail system.

Slated for completion in spring 2019, the first phase will consist of 154 apartments. Another 174 units will be built next summer as part of Phase 2. Grouped under the Viva-Cité banner, this residential rental project is part of 11 complexes in 10 cities on the South and North Shores of Montréal.

The Viva-Cité concept offers all-inclusive condo-style apartments geared to 55+ active adults. Occupants have access to a terrace, gym, pool and multipurpose room. Among the services available to residents is an activity program developed by a recreationologist. Rent includes Internet, telephone, cable, electricity, air conditioning and appliances.

“In light of its popularity with 55+ adults, we are continuing with this formula,” said Habitations Trigone’s president, Patrice St-Pierre. The construction of a Viva-Cité in Saint-Constant rounds out the range of products offered by the Carré Bloomsbury project, where Phase 3 of the condo development is underway. Located in a green setting close to all services, this new Viva-Cité phase is consistent with our vision of a living environment that combines well-being with accessibility.”

“With Habitations Trigone, we are participating in the creation of new real estate niches that are responsive to specific clienteles,” added Normand Bélanger, president and CEO of the Fonds immobilier de solidarité FTQ. “The Viva-Cité banner is geared to baby boomers in search of a different type of housing, one without the maintenance obligations that come with a house, while the new banner, Axcès Trigone, will appeal to a broader public. Both use the all-inclusive formula. We are proud to say that since 2015 we have been supporting the growth of this Québec developer whose success benefits the entire Québec economy.”
