Everyone who entered Equinoxe Marc Chagall in Côte St. Luc for its launch party last week had the same expression when entering the lobby area. Stunned.
That’s because the rental condo complex, which will be ready for occupancy July 1, has the look of a deluxe hotel, with a beautifully-appointed and spacious lobby, large common areas, and well-designed, ultra-modern apartments with very high ceilings.
Marieve Anderson, marketing strategist for Collection Equinoxe, took The Suburban on a tour of the 13-storey, 170-unit building, which was developed by builder Jadco Construction and investor Trantor Realty. Jadco built the Equinioxe complexes in Laval as well.
“We have 15,000 square feet of common areas— an indoor pool, gym, outdoor terrace, a kids room, VIP room, lobby, and a business centre,” Anderson explained, adding that the latter two can be rented for meetings and parties. “The high-end apartments are 3 1/2, 4 1/2, 5 1/2 rooms and a penthouse. The concept of Equinoxe is a five-star hotel, it’s like going home to a hotel every night. “People are getting older, they’re wanting to sell their houses, and they want less responsibility. No mortgage, sell your house, rent an apartment, travel, do whatever you want.”
Anderson added that 85 percent of the units are reserved. The spacious units include floor-to-ceiling windows, a gourmet kitchen, private balcony, and bathrooms with separate showers and bathtubs.
Among the many on hand for the launch were Mayor Mitchell Brownstein, area councillor Mike Cohen, and fellow councillors David Tordjman and Sidney Benizri.
“It’s the first resort-style living building that I’ve seen — I’ve never seen anything like it,” Brownstein told The Suburban. “I feel like I’m at the Diplomat Hotel in Florida.”
