A PLACE FOR LIVING

An urban development designed to foster a sense of community.

  • Consists of 5,500 dwellings to accommodate families wanting to live on the Island of Montreal.
  • Includes 1,500 subsidized or social-housing units.
  • Many configurations of dwelling.
  • Architectural projects adapted to the needs of different generations.

AFFORDABLE FAMILY LIVING

Families looking for affordable accommodation need no longer consign themselves to off-island suburbs.

RESIDENCES ADAPTED TO DIFFERENT GENERATIONS

Cap-Nature will include a variety of housing options that appeal to families and individuals of diverse ages and incomes: single-family dwellings, multi-unit buildings, co-operative and social housing. Schools, parks, and commercial services are within walking distance and set in green spaces designed to respect the natural heritage of the area.

To achieve the city’s goal of creating affordable housing, 1,500 units will be available for both co-operative housing (like Cloverdale Village or Terrasse Soleil in Pierrefonds-Roxboro) and social housing.

COMMUNITY SPIRIT

Cap-Nature will include an extensive network of walkways, cycling paths, public spaces, and parks to provide an inviting and secure communal environment to play and live in. Built on a human scale, residents won’t just live in Cap-Nature but actively participate in community life.
 

SUSTAINABLE POPULATION DENSITY

In keeping with municipal norms for residential developments, Cap Nature Pierrefonds-Ouest will average 35 residences per hectare, in contrast to Pierrefonds-Roxboro’s current average of 12 residences per hectare. Thoughtfully designed multi-unit dwellings will create an average urban density that enables sustainable services such as public transit.
