Pointe Nord, a stone’s throw from downtown Montreal, is an up-and-coming development which houses a vibrant community set within contemporary architecture. The development has taken a forward thinking ambition to ensure the community, and its buildings, are LEED Gold certified.
The latest developments at Pointe Nord are the stunning Evolo, Evolo2, and Pavilion Evolo condos and mid-rise building.
The concept of the Evolo condos aims to fit seamlessly within the LEED neighborhood plan by keeping its focus on the health and quality of its residents from planning to design. The Evolo buildings are a stunning example of sleek, modern architecture mixed with comfortable eco-friendly living. Every aspect of the buildings seeks to reduce its carbon footprint, improve energy efficiency, lower water consumption, and improve the quality of life.
The Evolo buildings boast ambitious standards including:
- Reduction of energy consumption as much as 30% through geothermal heating and cooling, improved ventilation, and high-efficient glass.
- Superior air quality through higher quality materials, direct ducts to each room, and a greater amount of natural light through larger windows.
- Efficient water systems which will reduce overall usage by 25%
Of course, a major benefit not to be overlooked is the prime location within close proximity of downtown Montreal. Within the neighborhood is access to parks, public transit, cafes, shops, restaurants, friendly landscaping and underground parking with green roofs.
As lush the neighborhood sounds, it’s the Evolo buildings which are truly head turners.
Evolo1 stands at 30 stories, housed in a sleek combination of concrete and glass which gives it a very modern, elegant look. Taking a glimpse inside shows us condos with a deal of choice ranging from comfortable 650 sq. ft. living areas to 2,500 sq. ft. Each condo has a spectacular view and houses furnishing that is just as elaborate and modern as the building itself. Residents that want to get out and about will find various pools, lounges, meeting areas and a party room included as some of the amenities.
Evolo2 is the sister building to the Evolo1 with many of the same features but placed next to the St. Lawrence River to give its dwellers one of the most relaxed and stunning sights in the city. The available condos range from 690 sq. ft. to 1,390 sq. ft. The Evolo2 continues the LEED standard and aims to provide healthy living for its residents with access to fitness rooms, interior and exterior pools and priceless waterfront access.
Lastly, the Evolo Pavilion is a smaller, mid-rise building situated between the Evolo1 and Evolo2 buildings. This five story building has a sleek outer design with heavy emphasis on lighting through large windows all-the-while showing support through sharp angles in the concrete. The pavilion consists of just 39 condominiums but each has been carefully designed to maximize living area and access to the community.
Proment Corporation, the developers behind Point Nord and one of the prominent developers on Nuns’ Island, has done a remarkable job crafting a new, vibrant community. The location, within reach of Montreal, blends the best of both worlds. The keen attention to detail, design and ambition to strive for higher quality in life through LEED standards makes the Evolo buildings some of the most attractive new condominiums on the market in Montreal today.
