Le Columbia

While Brigil conscientiously undertakes every building project with eyes firmly fixed on the future, it is also a company that respects the triumphs and traditions of the past. These dual sensibilities have helped to shape the vision for the company’s newest development in the Hull sector of Gatineau, which includes preserving the historic Columbia Farmhouse, built in 1837.

Ten years after acquiring the Columbia Farm property, Brigil is integrating the heritage building into the construction of its luxury rental condominium project at the corner of St. Joseph Boulevard and Gamelin Street. By preserving the impressively-crafted stone farmhouse, Brigil is paying homage to the determination and dedication of the home’s builders, the family of Philemon Wright, who founded Wright’s Town in Hull Township almost 200 years ago.

Common Spaces

Le Columbia’s design also offers more than 9,000 square feet of common space which will serve to extend your living area in a myriad of appealing ways. Thoughtfully planned as much to encourage socialization as to provide calm havens for reading, teleworking and relaxing, the onsite amenities will include a well-equipped gym and a luxurious, modern lobby with commercial space. The building’s rooftop terrace will provide a delightful and comfortable setting to enjoy the sun’s rays, sip on afternoon drinks or dine under the stars, all while enjoying beautiful views of the city. A multi-level, amphitheatre-style outdoor terrace will encircle the tower and the outdoor space will serve as an organic connection to the farmhouse.
