Bright sunshine, an aquamarine blue pool, snow white island cabanas, whirlpools, comfy chairs…you get the picture – you are on vacation. But wait, this vacation spot is Aquablu, a new condo development in Sainte-Dorothée in Laval, Greater Montréal, Canada.The largest suburb in the north of Montreal downtown is with its 420,000 inhabitants the 13th largest city in Canada. For a long time, it was dubbed a sleeper city. But in fact, it has industries in technology, pharma, retail, and more. Laval is the home of Cosmodome, one of five space camps in the world. No wonder that so much about it, an island in itself, is centered on air and sky.Back to Aquablu. The iconic condominium tower bordering on 1,000 feet of shoreline on the Rivière des Prairies with its 204 units is the brainchild of John Garabedian, a successful real estate developer who has a great vision for his hometown. Inspired by the river, he collaborated with architect Jean-Pierre Bart and the interior design firm Innédesign to design a resort-style living environment in the vicinity of Ile de Montreal and help develop the suburb. The project team became involved in urban planning as the area where the condo complex is built first needed eco-friendly solutions. Infrastructure such as bridges, roads, drainages etc. was built and agreements were reached with the community to extend the multi-use bike and walking path along the river.Aquablu with its simple lines, smooth-flowing curves, panoramic views, and the aquamarine color scheme resembles a hotel complex in an exclusive neighborhood and an incredible location. Phase 1 has been completed and the construction of Phase 2 has started in the fall of 2017. The completion of the project is expected by the end of 2019. The 100 million USD project consists of two towers. The first has 15 floors (Phase 1) and the second (Phase 2) will be 21 floors.The rarity of the property is not just the location but continues in the details. Outdoor and indoor pools, hot tubs, a unique architecture, and a bespoke design are just a few attributes of Aquablu. The differently sized units including villas range from 880 square feet to 5,000 square feet with open concept gourmet kitchens (where applicable), hardwood floors, and ceramic tiles. The unbeatable views from every condo unit dazzle but are best experienced at the three-story glass cube that is a communal space. It accommodates a game room (say: golf simulation), a bar-type living room where each party can store their favorite alcoholic beverage in an individually lockable box, and at the top level a fully glassed-in space for quiet contemplation such as yoga or pilates.The developer sought collaborations with established luxury brands to equip the condos with new and unique products. For example, the large stainless steel sinks and faucets come from us. The bathrooms are also fully equipped with our products.
The property is geared towards a slightly older target audience who wants to enjoy convenience, quality, and luxury. It is the first of its kind in Montreal.Aquablu is located at 275 Etienne-Lavoie, Laval, which is 22 minutes from downtown Montreal and 11 minutes from the international airport.
