Ground breaks on largest residential project in Longueuil
The first tower of Sir Charles Condominiums broke ground this month. Devimco Immobilier’s $ 800 million traffic-centric development ranks 1.6 million square feet as the largest real estate development in Longueuil, Quebec history.
The clients will build 1,612 residential units near the city center. Eventually the development will consist of two towers with commercial extensions below. The first will have 336 units on 25 floors and a swimming pool and indoor Nordic spa on the roof. Future plans include two 22-story rental apartment towers.
“The two locations of our project will allow us to create a real synergy between the different components in order to develop a high quality living environment for future residents, workers and visitors,” said Serge Goulet, President of Devimco Immobilier. “This is a very strategic sector for local public transport and mobility. With the bus station, the subway station and the REM or tram project, our development will be in the heart of Québec’s greatest DEATH. “
This first phase follows an agreement with the city council made in 2020 to develop the land above Longueuil-Université-de-Sherbrooke metro station.
“The start of this major project is a huge step forward in the development of downtown Longueuil,” added Longueuil Mayor Sylvie Parent. “After many years of work and planning, we are starting to realize a vision that will not only create new living, working and entertainment worlds in a complex directly connected to public transport, but will also change the configuration of our city forever. “
