le solano

At Le Solano, you can walk to work downtown and come home to the beach. The condo’s location at 801 Rue de la Commune Est in the Old Port of Montreal means an idyllic lifestyle, where the buzz of the city is close at hand while the fun of the riverfront is at your door.

St Luc Habitation has picked a prime spot for the 121-suite project with immediate access to trails, parks and pathways. One of the biggest perks of calling the area home is the beach. From May to September, enjoy the Clock Tower Beach, which features fine sand, chairs and parasols. It’s the perfect place to soak up the sun and relax with a book. Once you’ve finished working on your tan, you won’t have far to go to grab a drink with friends: the beach is even home to a bar! You don’t have to book a resort vacation if you want to enjoy a cocktail by the water.

The beach attracts all kinds of fun events. From June 13th to July 25th, 2014, Art in the Sand will see the Conveyor Quay transformed with giant sand sculptures.

Even if you don’t have a yacht docked in the marina, you can get out on the water, whether you have your eye on a paddleboat, kayak or electric boat rental. Or if cycling is more your style, the riverfront trails offer plenty of opportunity to pedal your way along the water. Why not bike all the way down to the Lachine Canal? Or rent a quadracyle and turn your bike ride into a group activity.

The quays are also the site of countless festivals and events once the weather warms up. From June 13th to 15th, the Eureka! Festival, Quebec’s biggest celebration of science, comes to Old Port, featuring presentations, shows and workshops that reveal science and scientists in a new light.

Divers/Cité is another popular summertime event in the area, which kicks off on July 28th with a free night of cinema under the stars in an Old Port park. Another fun part of the festival includes the carnival, which allows Montrealers to get costumed up for a fun time on nearby Bonsecours Island.

It’s a truly unique neighbourhood, rich in history and recreational space. Residents at Le Solano will enjoy riverfront, city and the mountain views and plenty of natural light from their suites. The contemporary condos, lofts and penthouses include a number of elegant finishes, including marble countertops, natural wood and different customizable layouts.

It’s a decidedly urban lifestyle that still understands the importance of play. Amenities include a courtyard, terrace space, fitness facilities, pool and even a sauna.

Suites start from $264,900.
