Ph I et closeup III

If you missed the autumn cocktail party held at the Castelnau sales gallery earlier in the fall, no need to worry: though the Phase III floorplans made their debut at the shindig, they’re now available for all to see.

The plans feature 2 to 3 bedroom suites equipped with large balconies or private terraces. Since they’re on the 4th to 6th floors of the building, they offer great views of Jarry Park. With the first phase already sold out, and Castelnau II under construction, we’ll definitely be tracking the project’s progress as the third part continues moving forward.

Set in the Villeray neighbourhood, the DevMcGill project is located on 7400 Boulevard Saint-Laurent. While the setting is urban, there’s still plenty of greenery, including Jarry Park just across the street. One of Montreal’s six largest urban parks, it offers views of Mount Royal and plenty of space for keeping active with an outdoor pool, playgrounds and dog park. It’s even equipped with sports facilities such as tennis courts, soccer fields, baseball fields and basketball and volleyball courts as well.

If you prefer to just relax and sip a cappuccino on an outdoor patio, Little Italy is a quick walk away. And if you don’t eat your fill in the neighbourhood’s many cafes, bakeries and restaurants, than stock up on fresh produce, cheese and meat at the much-loved Atwater Jean-Talon market.

The neighbourhood is highly walkable, earning an impressive “Walker’s Paradise” designation from (daily errands can all be accomplished on foot).

The project’s architects understand the value of greenspace. Castelnau features a landscaped forecourt plus and interior courtyard, complete with gardens and a fountain, encircled by the four structures that make up the project. There will also be a wealth of pedestrian pathways covering the grounds, a nice touch for a condo where half of the land is dedicated to green space.

Inside, the airy, open concept spaces feature windows spanning 6 to 8 feet, maximizing natural light. The homes also come with kitchens finished with quartz countertops and contemporary cabinets. Residents will also enjoy access to a fitness room, yoga and Pilates area, sauna, hot tub and lounge space.

Suites start from $160,000.
