Looking for a place to call home can seem like a tedious task. Besides all of the research and time spent looking for the perfect place, you need to take into consideration plenty of things, such as location and whether or not there are any amenities included. It’s no wonder looking for a new place can feel like a drag.\nLuckily for you guys, I’ve done most of the research and have scouted out two apartment buildings (which are currently being renovated to include a number of amenities!) courtesy of CLV Group, a property management company, that are definitely worth checking out.\nVIE APARTMENTS\nVia VIE Apartments\nLocated in Downtown Montreal (2121 & 2255 rue Saint-Mathieu) right next to Concordia University, VIE Apartments are perfect for the young professional or international student. The building is literally steps from everything the lively downtown has to offer such as shopping centres, boutiques, restaurants, parks, transportation and more.\nVia E. & O. E. Artist\nThe high rise building also features exceptional views of the city and Mont-Royal from the rooftop terrace and even from your very own balcony. Summer BBQing just got a whole lot better!\nVia VIE Apartments\nThe best part? The building is 100% pet-friendly! Which means that you and your furry friend can find a permanent home situated near multiple parks. Enjoy beautiful walks and even a picnic too (who doesn’t love picnics?).\nVIE Apartments offers a variety of floor plans including studio, 1 bedroom and 2 bedroom apartments with unique layouts, spacious living rooms, convenient kitchens and large windows that allow for plenty of natural light. You better believe that selfie is going to look good.\nVia VIE Apartments\nApartment features include modern flooring, a dishwasher (select units), fridge and stove, and freshly painted walls. You can also take comfort knowing that there are laundry facilities, elevators, a secure entrance and indoor parking to suit your needs. There is also an indoor pool that is perfect all year round, a rooftop lounge, bicycle storage, and a 24-hour emergency service. Select rooms can also take advantage of their own balcony and trust me, after you see the view, you’ll want a balcony.\nNow, downtown living is not for everyone so if you prefer something a little bit more urban and away from the hustle and bustle of busy downtown Montreal then check out Le Neuville Apartments.\nLE NEUVILLE\nVia Le Neuville\nOverlooking Parc La Fontaine and situated in the trendy Plateau Mont-Royal (1101 rue Rachel), this high-rise is a dream come true for everyone. The newly updated apartment features an indoor pool, gym, rooftop terrace for those summer BBQ’s, and an on-site laundry facility.\nVia Le Neuville\nThe central location also means that residents can enjoy everything that the Plateau has to offer and is just steps away from streets like Avenue du Mont-Royal, Rue Saint-Denis and Boulevard Saint-Laurent, which offer plenty of entertainment, dining and shopping options. There are also plenty of neighbourhood amenities in the area like a community center, bike and jogging paths, grocery stores, movie theatres, pharmacies, public transportation and so much more.\nVia Le Neuville\nThis 17 story building also includes renovated kitchens and bathrooms, freshly painted walls, updated flooring, large windows, and a balcony in select units. Each unit includes a fridge and stove, and select units even have a dishwasher and washer/dryer.\nVia Le Neuville\nAnd did I mention that they are also pet-friendly? Yup, you better believe it.\nVia Le Neuville\nThe cool thing about Le Neuville, I mean, on top of everything I just listed, is that they also offer extended stays with fully furnished 1 or 2 bedrooms suites that come equipped with household essentials, a queen bed, wifi, TV - Bell Fibe, regular housekeeping, and stainless steel appliances.\nFinding your dream apartment has never been easier thanks to CLV Group.
