The new $50M mixed-use project Le Moden in Montreal’s Ville-Marie East is focused on improving accessibility and paying homage to traditional design.
Inspired by the principles of TOD (transit-oriented development), Le Moden is located next to Frontenac métro station on the green line, a BIXI station, bus stops and a bike path. It promotes active mobility around the large Médéric-Martin Park and a shopping centre soon to be completely renovated by Bertone. Moreover, with its simple yet elegant visual style, Le Moden is in keeping with modern trends, while its red brick cladding is reminiscent of the district’s industrial past.
To bring its vision to life, the real estate company Bertone Development Corporation teamed with NEUF architect(e)s, a Canadian architectural and design firm.
“Our project is a model of urban development that takes into account the new realities of mobility,” says Claudio Bertone of the Bertone Development Corporation. “Many buyers have appreciated the concept as much as the architecture on a human scale.”
To be built in a single phase, the two towers of the building—one four storeys high and the other 10—will feature 126 condo units, as well as co-working spaces and two private teleworking offices on the ground floor. The units include studios and 1- to 3-bedroom condos, each with an outdoor space. Two other terraces are common areas, each with views of the Jacques Cartier Bridge and downtown skyline.
