Located in a mature residential neighbourhood, this new project is popular with empty-nesters, young professionals and families

There is a new option in Westmount for people looking at the simplicity of condominium living. Westmount is one of the most sought-after neighbourhoods in the Montreal area for multiple reasons; relatively low taxes, excellent recreational facilities, easy proximity to downtown and pleasant shopping areas. As a well-established and historic city, there are limited opportunities for condominium developments in Westmount. Consequently there is great interest when a new project comes on stream. 175 Metcalfe is located on a tree-lined street, and will be a brand new structure, with classic design to blend into a Westmount’s traditional English-style architecture.

Location is an important component of any real estate investment, and 175 Metcalfe is a short walk to Greene Avenue, Sherbrooke Village, the lovely Westmount Park with its new swimming pool and ice rinks. Westmount’s public and private schools are in close proximity. Perhaps most importantly, the immediate pedestrian-friendly neighbourhood is well established.

The architects have an interesting mix of living spaces, with 1 bedroom + den, 2 and 3 bedroom configurations, ranging from 700 to 1,800 square feet. The six storey building will also have a few one and two level townhomes with access directly from the street; some with backyards. A limited number of outstanding penthouse units with private rooftop patios are available. There are just 53 units in the building, which is of concrete and steel construction. Parking spaces are available, and there is a common interior space for bicycle parking.

Owners will have access to the roof top terrace, overlooking the tree-lined streets of the neighbourhood. 10-Foot ceilings are in all rooms (except the kitchens, bathrooms and hallways where it may be necessary to have space for internal ductwork). Every unit has a either a balcony, yard (in the case of townhomes) or private patio. There will be a doorman/concierge on duty.

Engineered wood floors are used in the living rooms, bedrooms, kitchens, and dining rooms in a six inch wide configuration. Ceramic floors are used in bathrooms, laundry rooms and loggias, and purchasers have the choices of colours. Purchasers can see the kitchen and bathroom choices and styles in the sales office. Loft-style ceilings are exposed concrete.
Each residence has air-conditioning, the ductwork for a central vacuum, and individual air exchange systems for each unit. Owners will be able to have remote control lights, temperature, sound and alarms both within their units and also from their iphone or ipads.
