Habitations Trigone and Fonds immobilier de solidarité FTQ broke ground on Viva-Cité Saint-Constant
St-Constant, October 16th, 2018 – Habitations Trigone and its partner Fonds immobilier de solidarité FTQ broke ground today on a new residential rental project, Viva-Cité Saint-Constant.
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 multi-functional park and trails. 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. 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,” said Habitations Trigone’s president, Patrice St-Pierre.
“With Habitations Trigone, we are participating in the creation of new real estate niches that are responsive to specific clienteles. 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,” said in turn Normand Bélanger, president and CEO of the Fonds immobilier de solidarité FTQ.
“The Fonds immobilier and Habitations Trigone are continuing to roll out the Viva-Cité banner, a concept that offers tenants a great quality of life in a vibrant, new type of environment,” concluded Normand Bélanger.
