Montreal condo buyers are looking for a new kind of lifestyle – one of convenience. Developers have started responding to this evolution in priorities by ensuring that their residential projects are well located; close to transportation, shopping, business districts, and entertainment venues. As the old adage says, it's all about 'Location, Location, Location', because residents want to have easy access to convenient services.
What can be more convenient than bringing the services to the residents?
Rising up in the heart of downtown Montreal, directly across from the Bell Centre, there's no doubt that L/Avenue already enjoys a very privileged location. However, L/Avenue Condos is also proud to be able to offer residents even more than that – access to a host of exceptional practical services located right in their own building.
Within its commercial podium, the L/Avenue condominium development will house a variety of businesses which will contribute dramatically to the quality of life of the condo residents. The plans for the mixed-use lower floors include office spaces, a restaurant and a 25,000 sq. ft. Provigo Le Marché grocery store.
Grocery shopping in the city, in particular, can be a daunting task, especially for those that chose city living in order to avoid having to drive. In the downtown core, large all-inclusive food markets are rare and it may be necessary to visit more than one grocery store as well as different specialty shops to find variety and fresh goods.
Residents of L/Avenue will not have to worry about carting bags of groceries on the bus or in the Metro. In one simple trip in the elevator down to the 2 nd floor, they will find everything they need at Provigo Le Marché .
PROVIGO LE MARCHÉ
In 1999, Provigo® became part of Loblaw Companies Ltd. This amalgamation resulted in the creation of Provigo Le Marché, a new and innovative style of supermarket. Provigo Le Marché stores provide a unique shopping experience that lives up to the expectations of discerning consumers who are passionate about great food. They pride themselves on offering their customers the finest, freshest and widest variety to choose from. They also boast a full list of in-store specialty services: A bakery, offering an assortment of freshly made baked goods, professional butchers, and a fishmonger where fresh fish and seafood are delivered every day. Their deli counter offers a vast selection of cured meats and they boast over 400 varieties of cheese from around the globe, with a special focus on Quebec cheeses. Of course they offer a wide variety of fresh produce, including over 120 organic products. And, as modern urbanites lead increasing busy lives, Provigo Le Marché is also pleased to offer a whole range of prepared foods.
CONVENIENCE AND VALUE
More than simply providing condo residents with the convenience of in-house access to services, such strategically placed grocery stores and practical businesses can also have a positive impact on the local neighbourhood and real estate. When these types of businesses open, a domino effect is often set in motion, injecting a new vibrancy into the surrounding area and driving up the values of both commercial and residential real estate.
