Three new towers added to Lachine project

MONTREALMay 8, 2018 /CNW Telbec/ – Développement Lachine Est Inc. – VillaNova has announced today the construction of three 10-storey towers, totalling 177 new condos and a 22,000 sq. ft. commercial ground floor. The project is aiming to create a new city of more than 4,000 homes at the intersection of the historic Lachine Canallocks and Lachine Est station, which allows residents to reach downtown in less than 20 minutes.

These residences will be modern and open, bringing together the latest smart home technologies, ambient lighting, high-end appliances and luxurious materials. All units are created with one standard in mind: nothing but the best. 

With the first units expected to be available in September 2019, these towers will encourage local culture with a “farm to table” restaurant that will serve fruits and vegetables grown in the project’s 15,000 sq. ft. of rooftop and patio space dedicated to urban agriculture. The $75 million towers will encourage gardening on the patios to support urban living on the water’s edge where residents will participate in a circular economy.

Common areas will help build a new community where residents can regularly meet. Future owners will have access to a yoga studio, an indoor/outdoor gym, a pool and a rooftop patio. “This project meets real needs. It reconciles the high demand for easy access to public transit with the desire for larger homes to offer the best living spaces for people looking to move to Montreal,” said Didier Heckel, Director of Planning and Building Development at Les Développements Lachine Est Inc.


  • 3 new towers to be added to the VillaNova project, representing more than one billion dollars in investments
  • Nearly 4,000 new units, ranging from townhouses to urban condos
  • Focused on local businesses (pharmacy, grocery store, bank branches, etc.)
  • Units will be approximately 5 minutes on foot from the Du Canal train station
  • Reclaimed architectural items from the neighbourhood’s industrial history decorate outdoor spaces
  • Award of Excellence from the Canadian Society of Landscape Architects for landscape management — 2015 edition — Regional Citation
