Imagine living in a contemporary, comfortable condominium situated in a community that offers the luxurious amenities typically found only at fine hotels or high-end retirement communities. Such is the case with 460 St-Laurent, Brigil’s urban oasis nestled in the central Cardinal Glen neighbourhood and it is proving irresistible to renters looking for something a step or two above the ordinary. 460 St-Laurent achieves a unique balancing act of providing a dynamic living environment that closely resembles resort life, promoting active living and relaxation as well as style and simplicity.
The attractive, well-lit building boasts 137 one, two and three bedroom condos, ranging in size from 494 to 1,108 square feet, distributed across 14 floors. Two high speed elevators provide seamless access to more than 9,000 square feet of common space, perfect for encouraging socialization as desired between tenants and giving every resident an opportunity to expand their living space beyond their own secure, calm haven. Features include an indoor swimming pool with a view, hot tub, sauna, rooftop terrace with a barbeque, movie theatre, games room with a pool table, library, gym and panoramic lounge.
But the selection of perks at 460 St-Laurent doesn’t stop there! Tenants can get their hair cut, enjoy a massage, have a medical appointment with their family doctor, dine in a high-end restaurant with a top local chef at the helm, enlist housekeeping services or savour a coffee in the first floor bistro. These convenient and competitively priced services make it possible to truly enjoy the good life without ever needing to step outdoors.
The condo inclusions at 460 St-Laurent are impressive, offering not only a complete appliance package including stainless steel refrigerator, stove and dishwasher as well as in-suite washer and dryer, but also complementary cable, landline telephone and high-speed internet. Heating and electricity, air conditioning, hot water, condo fees and residential taxes are all incorporated into the monthly rental payment. Also included are top-of-the-line fixtures, faucets, doors and mouldings and each suite has high-end finishes such as a quartz countertop, ceramic backsplash and glass shower. The building provides secure indoor vehicle and bicycle parking, storage lockers and superior soundproofing.
460 St-Laurent was developed based on lifestyle-focused design principles, says Brigil founder and president Gilles Desjardins. “We saw a tremendous opportunity for self-sufficient retirees who are still active and wish to live in comfort and style,” he adds. “Our community offers them the ability to embrace a simpler life with fewer responsibilities and the chance to benefit from the social aspects of surrounding themselves with like-minded individuals. As this chart indicates, considering the all-inclusive formula and all the services available within the building, 460 St-Laurent becomes a particularly appealing option, thanks to its affordability, for autonomous retirees and seniors.”
460 St-Laurent offers the best of both worlds, with all your daily needs met inside the building, but with a vast realm of easily-accessed possibilities should you choose to venture out. In fact, a hidden amenity is the community’s ideal location. It is close to everything an urban aficionado might want, including the Montfort Hospital (less than a kilometre away), restaurants, cafés, several large grocery stores, bookstores, churches, a public library, banks, spas and salons, hardware and electronics stores, LCBO and beer store, a golf course, sailing club, movie theatre, medical and dental services, pharmacies and more. Transit and several major shopping centres, such as St. Laurent Shopping Centre, are also handy.
The community represents the ultimate in harmony between urban life and nature, bordering on the leafy Manor Park neighbourhood and surrounded by beautiful woodlands and wetlands. 460 St-Laurent is a haven for outdoor enthusiasts thanks to multiple proximate four-season greenspaces including Hemlock Park, Alvin Heights Park, Richelieu Vanier Park, Nault Park, McKay Lake, The Pond, the Ottawa and Rideau Rivers, the Aviation Parkway and the Sir George-Étienne Cartier Parkway. While there is plenty to enjoy within just a few blocks, many of Ottawa’s top cultural attractions in and around the parliamentary precinct and the soon-to-be revitalized ByWard Market are less than 6 kilometres away, perfect for those who love to walk or cycle.
Another bonus of life at 460 St-Laurent is that Francophones and Francophiles will appreciate the opportunity to interact with others and be served in French as the community is already home to a number of Franco-Ontarians. Besides meeting some fellow French-speaking tenants, you will be close to an array of facilities offering services in both French and English, including healthcare, municipal offices, shops, sports, cultural activities and neighbourhood associations.
“For 35 years, Brigil has been committed to its mission of offering clients fresh approaches to living environments, tailored to their ever-changing needs. We are enormously proud that over twelve thousand people in the National Capital Region call our properties home,” says Mr. Desjardins. “We will continue to solicit input and feedback to allow us to innovate and improve the way people live together. In the case of 460 St-Laurent, we can confirm it is particularly appealing to tenants who wish to enjoy a safe, carefree lifestyle in a modern, luxurious building situated in a vibrant area.”
Safety is top of mind at 460 St-Laurent, with a friendly Director of client services on the premises, sharing in daily life and liaising with Brigil on behalf of residents as needed. Having a human presence to address any issues that arise is both reassuring and efficient, ensuring operations run smoothly every day. The facility is also equipped with a security guard and several surveillance cameras which operate 24/7, offering additional peace of mind. Common areas are cleaned and sanitized regularly, and each condo has its own independent ventilation system to ensure impeccable air quality, limiting the risk of air or virus exchange between units.
Despite the pandemic, Brigil continues to help prospective residents discover its well-appointed community located at 460 St-Laurent Boulevard. They welcome either virtual or in-person visits (with the utmost safety protocols in place) to view condominiums which are available for rent starting at $1,755 per month.
