District Atwater Launches Origine – Habitation Durable in Verdun

Montréal, Canada

District Atwater

Montréal, Canada, 22-03-2019 -

Founding President of District Atwater, Alexandre Forgues announced last night with Borough Mayor, Jean-François Parenteau, the development of a 64-unit project on the corner of LaSalle Boulevard and De l’Église Street. More than 300 people were also on site to attend the unveiling, which is three times more than expected. Located right at the heart of Verdun, Origine - Habitation Durable results from participatory citizen consultation, the first of its kind for a private project in Verdun’s history. Construction on the vacant lot will begin this summer.

 

“I am very pleased to present to the residents of Verdun a project that resonates with them, and that will contribute to the well-being of the neighborhood,” said Alexandre Forgues. “The Origine project will offer different types of housing, all perfectly adapted to urban life. As such, more than 3,000 people have already registered on the list of interest for a home in Origine. Newly revealed, more than 50 units have already been sold. This is beyond all our expectations.”

 

Mr. Jean-François Parenteau, Borough Mayor, is enthusiastic about this project: "Verdun is moving and changing. The Origine project will act in the landscape as a bridge between history and the 21st century."

 

The Courage to Build Together

Origine grew out of Alexandre Forgues’ desire to build a rallying and sustainable project. It is the result of a participative citizen consultation process that took place in July 2017 and brought together more than 120 participants. According to the developer, initiating this dialogue with the citizens of Verdun gave him the opportunity to improve the project while rooting it firmly in the borough.

 

Just as in previous projects, Alexandre Forgues was inspired by best practices to contribute to the green densification of Verdun, while eliminating an urban heat island. The choice of pale materials and claddings, the extensive greening of exterior surfaces, the recovery of rainwater and the respect of the principles put forward by the major certifications are examples of the efforts made by the developer to build in a more sustainable way.

 

Waterfront Living Reinvented

Developed in a single phase, Origine - Habitation Durable will offer one to five-bedroom condominiums, as well as two-storey townhouses to adapt to various lifestyles. Inspired by Bauhaus architecture, this human-scaled six-storey building stands out, among other things, with a slight shift from one level to another. Featuring an abundance of natural light, each unit is characterized by optimized space and unparalleled modular adaptability.

 

The occupants will benefit from the living architecture created by the hanging gardens and the 20 vertically integrated trees, thanks to Biotop Canada's technology. This makes Origine an example in terms of the integration of the principles of biophilia. For the occupants and the people of the neighborhood, the vast outdoor terraces and the unique covered spaces will allow everyone to live better, both inside and outside the project.

 

Origine also includes 14,000 square feet of commercial space available for rent in a Triple A location. This is an opportunity for local businesses to settle into this exceptional living environment.
