The 123-unit development, named La Rose des vents, will be a six-storey building located in the Technopôle Angus eco-district in Rosemont–La Petite-Patrie.
The building will include commercial space, a social community space on the first floor for tenants and neighbourhood residents to gather, paid laundry facilities, bicycle parking, and a bulletin board area.
The Technopôle Angus eco-district is a neighbourhood in Rosemont–La Petite-Patrie featuring 895,000 square feet of housing, offices, public space and green space — all "designed according to the most stringent planning and environmental standards," according to the website.
The new student housing project will be part of an "energy loop" with the other buildings in the green neighbourhood, reducing the entire neighbourhood's drinking water and energy usage.

David Harris, media relations officer for the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC), told MTL Blog that the building will hold 87 studios, 32 two-bedroom apartments and two three-bedroom units.
Thirty-seven of the building's 123 units will be rented at 78% of the median rent in the area, and affordability will be maintained for at least 20 years.

Look at those massive windows — think of all the sunlight you'll get. Plus, there's air conditioning! A double win. And don't forget to inquire about the "one month free" that it appears to be offering.

Studios often look ultra-tiny, but with the two big mirrors in this place, it doesn't fit that stereotype. And there's tons of cupboard space in the kitchen, so you won't have to hide pans under your bed.
While Montreal may not have the same exorbitant rental market like Toronto or Vancouver, free months rent is free months rent, you know? And with apartments like these, you can call them an absolute steal.
This apartment-hunting season is set to be more difficult than ever — and not just because of the pandemic. Unlike in other Canadian cities, apartments in Montreal have seen average rents soar, according to a recent report by Rentals.ca.
That might be why the core of the Montreal area is losing so many people to the outer suburbs.
Description: This basement two-bedroom apartment seems to be well-lit despite being partially underground. It also appears to have been recently renovated with modern finishes in the kitchen and bathroom.
It's close to parc Louis-Riel and the listing indicates that there are grocery stores and restaurants nearby.
