With its Highlands LaSalle project, the Quorum Group wishes to encourage young families to stay on the island of Montréal, thereby curbing the exodus to the suburbs.


As its name suggests, this development is located in LaSalle, not far from Lake Saint-Louis. "This borough offers the same quality of life as the suburbs, while being on the island of Montreal. For example, sidewalks are wide enough to walk with a dog and a stroller, but there is no bridge to cross to downtown Montreal! "Says Maxime Laporte, Director of Real Estate Development Of the Quorum Group. Thanks to the suburban train, one of the stations is a few minutes walk from the project, residents of Highlands LaSalle can reach the Lucien-L'Allier station in 20 minutes.

In addition to condos and townhouses, the project has some duplexes. "We decided to revisit the concept of a duplex. All units will be spacious enough to accommodate a family, since the lower ones will have three bedrooms and the top ones will have four, "says Laporte. On the other hand, those who do not have the means to acquire an entire block will be able to buy one of the two units separately, as a divided co-ownership. "In the same way, those who will acquire a block will eventually be able to sell one of the two apartments separately," says the promoter.


The townhouses, also very large, will have three bedrooms each. "If you take into account the basement and the mezzanine area, it will be possible to build three additional rooms," emphasizes Maxime Laporte. The units will also have plenty of storage space. "Since I was a dad myself, I realize that children's items take up quite a lot of space! It is for this reason that we thought of including a locker in front of some parking lots. This will be very practical to store the stroller or travel bags, "adds Laporte.


The condos, for their part, will have an area that will oscillate between 670 p2 and 1,116 p2. "The pace of population aging is faster in LaSalle than elsewhere in Montreal. When they reach a certain age, many people want to buy a smaller residence. This is what Highlands LaSalle will allow them to do, "says the developer, who conducted market research for more than a year before launching the project, alongside Peter Cosentini and Guy Laporte, co-founders and co-owners of the project. Group Quorum.


In order to offer units at the best possible price, the promoters decided to limit the common areas. "Residents still have access to grassed areas, as the project is located near eight parks, some of which have tennis and soccer fields," says Maxime Laporte. Parents will also be pleased to learn that the neighborhood of Highlands LaSalle includes a daycare and several schools, including the Sainte-Anne de Lachine College, which is one of the province's leading private educational institutions.
