MONTREAL – Brivia Group has announced plans to construct a 19-storey residential tower called the Mansfield at the corner of Sainte-Catherine and Mansfield streets in Montreal.
The project is being undertaken with Tianqing Investment Group, stated an April 21 release. The site is historic, as it’s formerly the home of Loew’s Theatre and more recently the Mansfield Athletic Club, and the design, assigned to Beique Legault Thuot Architectes, will respect the theatre’s heritage.
The residence will include 248 residential units. Brivia Group expects to appeal to young professionals, first-time buyers and empty-nesters.
Amenities will include an infinity pool overlooking Sainte-Catherine Street, fitness centre, lounge with fireplace, wine bar, golf simulator, party room and spa. The residence will also feature teleworking and conference rooms and commercial spaces.
The project will include a new urban alleyway connecting Mansfield and Cathcart streets with Dorchester Square. Nearby landmarks include Place Ville Marie, 1000 de la Gauchetiere and the Sun Life Building.
Brivia Group is planning to begin construction in the summer of 2021, with occupancy set for 2024. It’s Brivia Group’s sixth major project in downtown Montreal, following such builds as YUL, QuinzeCent and 1 Square Phillips.
“The enormous success of Brivia Group’s previous projects in downtown Montreal confirms buyers’ strong interest in reclaiming this part of the city and living there,” said Kheng Ly, president and CEO of Brivia Group, in the statement. “Demand for downtown residential units is not diminishing. With this brand-new project, Brivia Group is offering buyers a unique opportunity to be in the heart of the action and perpetuates our tradition of excellence and quality.”
