Built in 1913 by the Northern Electric Company, the Nordelec remains a remarkable example of Montreal’s early 20th century architecture. Nordelec Developments (Phase I) recently unveiled its three-level penthouses that will be turned over to their owners in November 2014. Designed by the Lemay + CHA studio and whose model penthouse is decorated by HUMA Design, these 36 residences that vary between approximately 950 and 1,950 square feet are Nordelec’s jewel, a dazzling reminder of the industrial legacy of Pointe St-Charles in southwest Montreal, Canada. Located in southwest Montreal, Pointe St-Charles Neighbourhood is a booming area because of its accessibility, green spaces and businesses, mainly on Centre, Wellington and Notre Dame streets. Residents of the building and the neighbourhood will benefit from shops planned at the Nordelec concourse level. “The redevelopment of the historic Nordelec building is an exciting opportunity to participate in the revitalization of the Pointe St-Charles area,” states Annie Dufresne, Sales and Marketing Director for Nordelec Developments.
The Nordelec Penthouses Complex project is enormous. To date, Nordelec Developments (Phase I) has erected a total of 36 penthouses and 67 urban lofts. Phase 2 will see the addition of approximately 135 condos anticipated to be ready for occupancy in the spring of 2015. On completion, an additional 1,131 units are planned for future phases of Nordelec. With approximately 20 months of construction time and nearly 200 local contractors and consultants contributing to the construction, this represents a substantial investment by the developer to the Montreal economy.
