Lowney sur Ville’s final 104 units were recently put up for sale by Prével, marking the end of a project that spanned 12 years to contribute in large part to the revitalization of Griffintown. This final phase comes after Lowney, an innovative project for the region, began in 2004 with the transformation of two chocolate factories into a condominium development.
The Lowney and Lowney sur Ville developments are now comprised of 15 phases with a total of over 1,600 condo units and urban lofts, all created following the partnership between Prével and the Fonds Immobilier de Solidarité FTQ.
Lowney sur Ville’s final phase features 104 units in a 20-storey building that offers views of the river, Old Montreal and downtown. The one, two and three-bedroom condos are priced between $140,000 and $412,000 before taxes. Condo owners will enjoy amenities such as a rooftop terrace with swimming pools and views of the city, a 2,200-square-foot urban chalet with large windows on the roof level and a fitness centre that spans over 5,000 square feet and features an indoor pool and spa area.
The Griffintown location is also home to many shops, cafes, restaurants, galleries and other areas of interests for residents. The revitalization of the region began in 2004 when Prével transformed the Lowney Cherry Blossom chocolate factory into residential lofts.
“At the time, Prével presented the project with great ambition towards revitalizing this one working-class neighbourhood. Lowney differentiated itself by proposing to build lofts and common areas, thus attracting a new clientele base, mainly young couples,” said Normand Bélanger, president and CEO of the Fonds Immobilier de Solidarité FTQ, in a press release. “With Prével in command of the development, we knew we could offer an exceptional product, one of quality and integrity. 12 years later, Prével’s success is eminent.”
