An Exclusive Montreal Griffintown Condo That Has Everything You Need In A Home

My first time at the Lowney was at one of the first phases built in 2011, the Lowney567 located at 950 Rue Notre Dame O.

At the time, not as many condo projects were being constructed around Griffintown area, so it was a fairly "new" concept to have a building that provided all in house facilities. In this fast growing industry, Montreal has now become saturated with these buildings surrounding Griffintown, Downtown Montreal and the Old Port.

Because frankly, it's the ultimate bachelor/bachelorette Pad.

Let me explain.

The difference between living at the Lowney, or living at your typical standard condo building, is that these projects make you part of a membership. An exclusive VIP Club.

Each phase is equipped with a full gym, lap pool, sauna, jacuzzi, steam room and infiniti indoor pool, located at the rez-de-chausser level.

Then for playtime, there is a rooftop terrasse with lounge chairs and multiple seating areas, BBQ's, outdoor rooftop pools (yes, with an s) overlooking a spectacular view of Downtown Montreal.

Oh, and incase it rains- there's also a "chilling" area with access to wi-fi, pool tables and common kitchen areas.

It's also a block away from New City Gas

It is THE perfect setting for a young professional who has "la joie de vivre" as they say.

Since I last visited the complex, the Lowney has now expanded to Lowney Phase 8-9-10-11 and Lowney Sur Ville off Shannon, Ottawa, Ann and William street.

If you're looking to invest, everyone knows Griffintown is the new up and coming area to live in.

Incase you're wondering, yes, I plan on moving to the Lowney, ASAP.

Median condo prices in the Montreal area are up 20% compared to last August, according to a report by the Quebec Professional Association of Real Estate Brokers (QPAREB). But some areas saw even bigger price increases.

The report looked at several general areas within the greater metro area, including Montreal Island, the North and South Shore, Laval, and the MRC of Vaudreuil-Soulanges.

As a Montrealer, there's nothing I love more than a good 5 à 7 (especially in the summer) and discovering a secret spot somewhere in the city. That's why I was so excited when I stumbled upon l'Hôtel Particulier Griffintown (HPG)'s Secret Garden.

Located in the heart of one of the city's most bustling terrasse-filled areas, HPG is an absolute oasis for those who want to be part of the action in a more intimate setting, because you and your friends can actually rent it out and have a secret garden all to yourselves! The website recommends using the space for a 5 à 7, brunch, picnic, summer party, dinner or BBQ.

A new smorgasbord-style market with "ephemeral terrasses, cultural pop-ups and musical entertainment" is coming to the banks of the Lachine Canal in Griffintown over the course of three weekends, beginning on July 31 and August 1.

The event name, Sudbest, perfectly captures the goal of the event. Organizers call it the Sud-Ouest's "largest commercial revival initiative," bringing forward as many of the borough's merchants, artists and artisans as possible.

A new report from Royal LePage suggests that while Montreal's real estate market might start to cool down, home prices are still projected to increase more overall than any other market in Canada.

The company recorded a 21.7% year-over-year increase in the "aggregate price of a home" ("a weighted average of the median values of all housing types collected") in the Montreal area in the second quarter of 2021, bringing it to $514,000.
