Special construction plans for the historic environment
Montreal-based real estate company, Demonfort, announces the development of La Chapelle, an innovative and inspiring 78-unit condominium project which is very likely to be the last of its kind to be undertaken in such a strategic area. Located on Querbes Avenue, in the heart of Outremont, La Chapelle is just a short distance from Saint-Viateur Park, Théâtre Outremont, and many of the neighbourhood’s finest restaurants and shops. Building on 20 years of expertise, Demonfort embarks on this exceptional journey, bestowing careful attention to the location’s historical setting.
Heritage preservation and integration at its finest
This project is the fruit of a 3-year-long reflection aiming to achieve integration with the location’s heritage and surrounding urban fabric. While many bids were submitted, the winning bid was made by ACDF Architecture and approved by the City of Montréal. Demonfort, with its 20 years of expertise, once again demonstrates its tremendous knowledge and mastery through this development and construction project in which quality and integrity take centre stage. The result will embody harmonious architecture with a current, yet timeless appeal. The project’s guiding principles include refined design features and workmanship, top-quality materials, including brick, natural stone, wood, glass, and aluminum, and stunningly-designed common areas to further enrich the living environment.
La Chapelle will feature a contemporary architectural structure cradling a historic chapel, thus complementing and enriching the surrounding urban landscape. The ground floor will be home to a truly spectacular common space for all residents, with an airy lounge, a coffee bar, a library, a large co-working space with a closed meeting room that can accommodate up to 10 people, and a kitchen area for hosting family and friends. With a skylight that lets in natural light, the pool area is designed to be both a private oasis and a pleasant gathering place, depending on the needs of the residents at any given time.
La Chapelle's 78 spacious units are bathed in light and extended by a balcony, terrace, or private garden. Common areas include a coffee area, a library, a pool, a dry sauna and steam room, a gym, shared workspaces, a conference room, an event room, and a kitchen area. The building will also feature a 3-level parking garage with electric vehicle charging stations.
In 2003, Florent Moser and David Lafrance joined forces to create Demonfort. They were soon joined by Ali Lakhdari, senior partner, Large project development. In collaboration with architectural firms, the company has since developed, carried out, and managed numerous real estate projects whose excellence has been rewarded with a variety of awards both in Quebec and internationally. Specializing in the enlightened transformation of heritage buildings into prestigious homes, Demonfort assumes the role of general contractor for each of its real estate projects. This follow-up ensures the irreproachable quality of the living environment that the company delivers to customers wishing to live in exceptional environments.
