MONTREAL — Developpements Symphonia held an official groundbreaking ceremony Dec. 4 kicking off construction of Symphonia POP, a $100-million condo project located on the southern tip of Nuns’ Island in the Montreal borough of Verdun.
More than 65 per cent of the 207 condos have been sold and the first units are expected to be delivered by 2021, said a statement.
The region is currently under redevelopment with upcoming transportation projects including the new Champlain Bridge and an REM light-rail station.
The project was designed by Provencher_Roy. The units will range in size from 600 to 3,000 square feet, ceilings will be nine to 11 feet high and there will be both indoor and outdoor pools and indoor and outdoor Jacuzzis.
Other amenities will include a sauna and steam bath, a meeting room with full kitchen available for all residents, a gymnasium open 24/7, a yoga room, games room, pool room and electric-vehicle charging stations.
“The project is a beacon for the renewal of the southern tip of Nuns’ Island,” said Kevin Robinson, general manager of Developpements Symphonia, in the statement. “The tower will become an emblem for the borough and even for the city of Montreal. With its bold design and avant garde look, Symphonia POP truly marks a turning point in the area’s modernization.”
“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.
