Le petit Laurent: A new rental project!

We are pleased and excited to announce our new residential rental project, Le petit Laurent, which adds 52 distinctive apartments to our real estate portfolio, for occupancy as of summer 2022.
Le petit Laurent is distinguished by its exceptional location, but also by its unique architectural concept designed by the team of MU Architecture, which highlights the two main facades. The one on Clark Street with a contemporary design like the Quartier des spectacles and the one on the Saint-Laurent Boulevard, inspired by the history of this artery, the oldest on the Island of Montreal.

Pre-closure visits to the gypsum walls began this week and the construction of phase 2 is progressing more and more! Work on the concrete and formwork of the building has now been completed and the curtain wall is now being installed up to the 7th floor. In addition, the tracing and installation of the exterior walls are underway up to the 21st floor and the installation of the interior adjoining walls is underway up to the 6th level. By the end of June, if everything goes according to plan, the windows will be fully installed, and the installation of the exterior walls will be completed.

Produits écoresponsables
Our favourite eco-responsible products

Eco-responsible habits are greatly promoted in our office and since we are aware that changes take place collectively, one gesture at a time, we have made it our mission to transmit our eco-responsible values to our employees. With sanitary measures requiring most of our employees to stay at home, we wanted to know what they were using on a daily basis in order to continue their good habits from the office. So, here are 5 interesting responses we received:
Karine: Dishwashing products
To do her dishes, Karine opts for dish soap refills from The Unscented Company in order to avoid wasting plastic containers. She also uses natural double-sided sponges made from nuts. Small tip: since the sponges are quite large, Karine cuts them in half to maximize their use!
Annie: Products Made of Bamboo
Whether it is for her toothbrush, makeup remover pads or for her cotton swabs, Annie is sold to bamboo products from the Quebec company OLA Bamboo! After all, bamboo is one of the most environmentally friendly materials due to its biodegradable, compostable and reusable composition.
Carole-Anne: Cleaning Without Chemical Products
Carole-Anne uses the microfiber wipes from Norwex which aim to stop using harmful chemicals. "Favourite product for washing windows with just water, and the results are even better than with a cleaning product! "
Coralie: Bar shampoos
Coralie has been using shampoo bars for some time and she loves it! No more plastic containers! She notably uses products from the Montreal company BKIND. By the way, did you know that one bar of shampoo contains the equivalent of two to three medium-sized bottles of shampoo? Wow!
Lilie: A More Eco-Responsible Litter
Having two cats in the house and noticing that their litter boxes created a lot of waste, Lilie got herself a litter bin which allows her to clean the litter box every day, but only spend one garbage bag a week! Also, Lilie opts for bulk silica litter, which is a 100% natural litter that she gets from Mondou.

Coffrets solidaires
The Holiday Solidarity Box

The holiday season is approaching fast, despite the pandemic that has changed our lives since last spring. For some, this period of rejoicing can be overshadowed by food insecurity that has been going on for several months.
This is why we decided to include Solidarity Boxes as a christmas gift to our partners. This gourmet box filled with local products is an initiative launched by La Tablée des Chefs where 100% of the profits raised will be devoted to their program with the mission of feeding and educating families in need. Check out their website to learn more about Solidarity Boxes, https://www.tableedeschefs.org.

Fundraising for Hochelaga Community Centre

This unprecedented crisis has affected us all in one way or another, but nevertheless, we are among the privileged who have been able to keep their jobs and who will have the chance to spend a holiday season, certainly different, but comfortable. Unfortunately, we are aware that this will not be the case for many families in the area for whom life is particularly difficult in normal times and who are even more affected by the pandemic.
This is why this year Rachel Julien asked for the help of its employees to give some comfort to these families in need by participating in the distribution of Christmas baskets at the Hochelaga Community Centre. Each year, the Community Centre organizes a distribution of baskets worth $200 each to 50 families in the Hochelaga district. These baskets offer food, items for the home, toys for children, in short, anything that can help these families to have the most pleasant and comforting holiday season possible.
It is a cause that is extremely close to our hearts and if we can influence some to do the same, we will be happy. Check out their website to learn more about different ways to give, www.cchochelaga.org.

Rachel Julien’s Initiative – Local Restaurants

As you know, the last few months have been very difficult for many businesses, especially restaurants and workers in this industry. Despite all this, we try to keep our spirits up and find solutions and one of them is of course to support our local restaurant owners by continuing to order meals and thus give them the chance to keep their heads above water during this dreaded second wave.
This is why we have decided to offer all our employees three dinners from a restaurant in the surrounding neighborhoods, thus contributing to the survival of the local economy, but also to thank each of our employees, not only for their excellent work, but to underline their team spirit.
In the same vein and with the aim of continuing the annual tradition of the ''Rachel Julien Christmas Party'', our employees accompanied by their families, gathered virtually to share a 3-course meal from Chez Victoire all together. Though unusual, this evening allowed us to thank our employees once again while encouraging a Montreal restaurant owner with a total of 53 meals ordered. Check out their website to learn more about their take-out menu, www.chezvictoire.com.

Condo neuf Laurent & Clark
5 tips to create an illusion of greatness in your new condo

The delivery of your future home in phase 1 of Laurent & Clark or in phase 4 of Bassins du Havre is approaching, it's very exciting. You have finally arrived at the most crucial stage of all: the decoration of your condo. Without further a due, here are 5 strategies to optimize the spaces in your new home:

  1. Hang some mirrors! Adding mirrors to your walls is probably the simplest and quickest way to open-up a space. For even better results, try installing the mirror on a wall opposite to a window. That way, natural light will be reflected throughout the whole unit. Whether miniature, eccentric, with ornaments or with different shades, mirrors are the key to enhance the space in a room.
  2. Less is more! It’s easy to get carried away when shopping for furniture. However, getting pieces that are too big for the space, will make the unit feeling cramped and will create a suffocating effect. Instead, go for minimalism! With glass furniture or integrated storage furniture, or just smaller furniture, you can create a style that emphasizes on linearity and continuity, and advocates proportion. That way, you’ll get a bigger looking space!
  3. Transparency is key! If you can, we suggest picking out glass or transparent furniture for a light decor. Preferably, pieces without any harsh outlines. This way, your line of sight will be directed all the way to the far back of the unit. Trust us, the space will look and feel much bigger! Whether transparent, translucent or even colored, glass or Plexiglas furniture is a must!
  4. A pop of color! Color is fun! A colorful decorative touch can bring cheerfulness to the room and a refined sense as well. However, adding too much color to a small space can make it feel a little chaotic. Instead, try opting for neutral-toned furniture and reserving that pop of color for all small decorative elements, whether for examples, cushions and plants. That way, you’ll also give a contemporary look to your condo.
  5. Draw the eye upward! For the final tip, we suggest choosing tall, vertical furniture to dress up your walls. By doing so, you will draw the eye towards the ceiling, therefore bringing attention to the height of the unit.

Rachel Julien launches the Laurent & Clark Phase 2 Penthouse Collection

MONTREAL, October 10, 2018 - Rachel Julien continues the transformation of Montreal's urban landscape by launching today the Penthouse 2 Collection of his real estate project Laurent & Clark. Combining incomparable views with the highest level of design, the Laurent & Clark Penthouse 2 Collection embodies the art of living. Located in the heart of the Quartier des spectacles, the Laurent & Clark consists of two twin buildings, however not identical - combining the best of both worlds between the excitement of the neighborhood nd the serene atmosphere that emerges from the project.

Buyer’s Guide / Purchasing Steps

As a real estate developer, we want to share our knowledge and expertise to support aspiring homeowners and take a step toward financial independence. That's why we created this guide, which is intended primarily as a reminder and a reference document to demystify the purchase process of a new condominium. This buyer's guide will accompany you through the meanders of real estate!

First groundbreaking for Laurent & Clark

Developer Rachel Julien today broke the ground on Phase I of the Laurent & Clark project, a major development in the Quartier des spectaclesMontreal's show district. The first phase of construction on this 21-storey housing project will culminate in the construction of 159 luxury condominiums, scheduled for delivery in 2019. This complex, whose unique architecture makes it among the most highly prized in the downtown area, is destined to become an iconic building for the city. Boasting high-end units with both eastern and western exposure, semi-private elevators, breathtaking views and a spa to rival those found in the best hotels, the Laurent & Clark is a must for discriminating home buyers. The initial phase alone is valued at over $65 million. The project owes its architecture to MENKÈS SHOONER DAGENAIS LETOURNEUX Architectes, and will feature two non-identical towers, as a reflection of the building's duality. One side of the Laurent & Clark development opens up onto the effervescent Quartier des spectacles, which is home to festivals, light shows and museums. The other side opts for a more comfortable and serene ambiance. The design of the dwellings, courtesy of Gauvreau Design, relies heavily on a pure rectilinear approach.
