Phase 2 of the “Urbania – The Urban Village” project is currently under development. Eventually, it will include 1,150 condos of 600 to 1,300 sq. ft.

Entirely designed by Giasson Farregut Ménard Architects, Le Daly-Morin is a condominium project totaling 174 residential units of 550 and 2000 sq.ft. near the Lachine Canal. Developed in four phases and completed in 2017, Le Daly-Morin offers modern living spaces in five- to six-storey buildings.

Bois-Ellen Solidarity Cooperative

Laval | 2014 – 2016

If we first notice the vivid colors of the 166-unit complex, it is the innovation in energy saving that makes it an avant-garde architectural achievement. The cooperative, built with the financial support of the Société d’habitation du Québec as part of the AccèsLogis program, is composed of two buildings aimed at distinct clienteles. The 13-storey wing has 110 units for seniors with a slight loss of autonomy. Families live in the 56 units of the 6-storey wing.
