An alternative to traditional retirement residences
Sanctuaire Mont-Tremblant: an alternative to traditional retirement residences
A new concept in Mont-Tremblant, the Sanctuaire du Mont-Tremblantwill provide, from July 2020, rental apartments for active retirees in the heart of centre-ville. The building, composed of one- and two-bedroom apartments, will have several communal areas offering numerous possible uses.
The rental complex aimed at those aged 55 and over will comprise, when completed, 111 units on rue Saint-Roch, in Saint-Jovite sector.
Located close to all services, the P’tit Train du Nord linear park and the Complexe aquatique de Mont-Tremblant swimming pool complex, the building will house various communal areas including a movie theatre, gym, activities room, large living room with fireplace and reception room with a kitchen and bistro.
There will even be a postal services counter.
“A market study showed us that there was clearly a demand for this type of project in Mont-Tremblant,” explains Lorraine Chevrier, rental agent for the Sanctuaire. “The clientele targeted by the project is autonomous and aspires to remain so,” she explains.
“They want to live in a safe, peaceful environment and have an active social life. Some apartments, nonetheless, will have the equipment needed to accommodate specific needs.”
The units provide a range of areas from 870 sq. ft. to 1125 sq. ft. The largest will have a big deck and walk-in closets. In terms of safety and security, all apartments will be equipped with an emergency pull-cord.
These latter, linked to a central communications centre, will also alert staff on-site trained in first aid. “This means that it will be possible to intervene quickly,” Ms. Chevrier notes.
Similar projects have already been created by real estate promoters Jean-Francis Blondin and Eric McLellan, including Le Laurier in Mirabel. Sixty or so units will be ready to receive their first renters from July 1, 2020. Fifty or so apartments will follow starting that fall.
