Le 215 Redfern – elegant living in Westmount The Montrealer November 30, 2011 6772 Every now and then a product is introduced to the marketplace and captures the imagination and attention of its intended public. Located in Westmount and just a five minute stroll from that city’s iconic Greene Avenue, Le 215 Redfern is a condominium development where Yes, Yes, Yes are the answers to the real estate mantra of Location, Location, Location. In addition to our immediate living space, our neighbourhood is an important part of our daily living environment. For people accustomed to communities with quiet, tree-lined streets, parks and convenient shopping, the community beyond their front door is an important consideration when considering a move to a condominium. Recognizing that purchasers are often moving from large homes, Architect Karl Fischer has designed spacious penthouse suites like the three plus bedroom 2,630 square foot corner unit that has a very spacious 360 square foot loggia and a 1,500 square foot private roof top terrace adjacent to the swimming pool and gym. Purchasers will enjoy the convenience of condominium living while maintaining the privacy and space of a home. Westmount is a well-managed city with surprisingly moderate property taxes and is considered one of the more prestigious communities in Greater Montreal. Le 215 Redfern is situated on a quiet residential street opposite single family homes. There are just 60 residences within the six-story building that will soon be under construction. A well-known Montreal businessman and philanthropist has purchased at Le 215 Redfern, in part because he recognizes that he’ll realize a favourable return on investment. A couple who own a successful real estate business has also purchased; in part because they too see the future value of their acquisition. “We can see the future value from an investment standpoint – but we’re also excited about living there. We’re very impressed with the design, the building’s amenities and of course – the location.” Situated on the site of the former Readers’ Digest building, the builder is maintaining only the concrete floors, adding two additional floors and a rooftop amenity floor complete with indoor pool, gym and rooftop terrace, with new plumbing, wiring and dividing walls, using the latest building materials to ensure soundproofing. Acoustic membranes will be installed before the hardwood floors are laid. Gas fireplaces and appliances are available in selected units. Gas barbeques in loggias! With the current emphasis on entertaining and food preparation, the kitchens have been designed with granite or quartz countertops, fine cabinetry, and state-of-the art Miele appliances. Ceiling heights are a minimum of 10’4” on the 2nd to 5th floors; and on the ground floor the heights are 13’5” and 11’5”. Depending on the design of each unique residence, they have a loggia/and or terrace that serves to expand the available living space. From the moment you and your guests enter the elegant main lobby, you will be welcomed by a courteous doorman. Concierge and valet services will also be available. Garage spaces and lockers afford plenty of useful storage space. Master bedroom suites are equipped with walk-in closets. Heating and air conditioning are individually controlled, and the nearly floor-to-ceiling ‘tilt and turn’ windows open to allow fresh for air. The lyrics of Carol King’s song Up On The Roof come to mind when describing the rooftop oasis in the centre of the city…”I’ve found a paradise that’s trouble free”. The fully equipped fitness centre and indoor pool look out over the city and the private rooftop terrace and urban garden. The patios and lounge areas are situated on the west side of the building to take advantage of the afternoon sun. For 60 plus families, Le 215 Redfern will become their new home, with the promise of becoming a community. Without compromising on space, they will enjoy maintenance-free lifestyle and security of condominium living; leaving them free to travel.
