A groundbreaking ceremony for the Auguste & Louis Phase 2 project
Today, Fiera Real Estate and its partners, Groupe Devimco and Fonds immobilier de solidarité FTQ, proceeded to the official groundbreaking ceremony for the Auguste & Louis Phase 2 project in Quartier des lumières, at the intersection of René-Lévesque Boulevard East and Beaudry Street, in the heart of the illustrious site of the former CBC/Radio-Canada Tower.
Phase 2 features 253 condominium units over 21 floors. Studios and one- to three-bedroom units span up to 1,259 square feet. The first units are scheduled for delivery in 2025. This second phase is part of a major real estate project of 2,200 condominium units in Quartier des lumières.
The architecture of Auguste & Louis Phase 2, designed by the firm Provencher_Roy, is intended to be a continuation of the first phase of the project. To embody the motion-picture theme inspired by the Lumière brothers, the building’s architecture has been carefully thought out to offer a play of light that varies from light to dark.
Designed to showcase the best of urban living, Auguste & Louis Phase 2 balances the dynamism of the city with the tranquility of the surrounding greenery through its vast common spaces, including a rooftop terrace with an urban garden, an outdoor lounge with a BBQ area, fire pit, Adirondack chairs, urban gardens and a pergola, an indoor lounge on the ground floor with a double-height ceiling that can be privatized, and a majestic 32,000 sq. ft. landscaped inner courtyard.
“We are excited to begin Phase 2 of this landmark project for Montreal, which promises to modernize the historic Faubourgs area at the gateway to downtown. This second phase is part of a mixed-use real estate project that spans 4 million sq. ft., including more than 2,000 residential units, 1 million sq. ft. of office space and close to 230,000 sq. ft. of commercial space,” said Pierre Pelletier, Head of Real Estate Development and Financing at Fiera Real Estate.
The project’s architectural concept, which will stand out with its contrasts and plays of light, is rooted in the theme of the Quartier des lumières, paying tribute to the Lumière brothers. The double-height lobby will also allude to the art of cinema by immersing residents in an atmosphere reminiscent of “black box” film projection.
On the roof, green spaces will be designed to promote a friendly and lively community spirit. The project will be crowned by an outdoor rooftop pool offering residents a breathtaking panoramic view stretching from the Jacques Cartier Bridge to the downtown core.
