Griffintown has yet another condo project to add to its repertoire; a 300-unit building on Murray street that will be move-in ready on May 1, 2015. Despite only having been on the market for a few months the Murray is already 80% sold out, and for good reasons:
It’s a great financial investment. With extremely competitive prices, starting at only $199,000, the project offers quality amenities that secure the long-term value of the units, such as quartz countertops, thermoplastic kitchen cabinets, and integrated AC. Property taxes are also considerably lower than in the rest of the South West, as buildings with more than 100 units incur only 1.6% rather than the regular 2.7%
The neighbourhood is exciting. A recent public investment of $93 million dollars was made into Griffintown, which is predicted to become one of the most valued residential areas in Montreal within the next few years. As those who live there know, there’s no shortage of trendy new bars, restaurants and boutiques opening up in the area. Despite the rapid urbanization, there are still a lot of green spaces and parks to benefit from, not to mention the serene banks of the Lachine Canal.
The ergonomic layout. The Murray flaunts its central location with a huge Clubhouse on the 14th floor that offers a panoramic view of the city. It has a lounge with a big screen LED TV, a library, pool table, and terrace with a panoramic view. On top of that, lucky residents will gain access to a heated outdoor pool, a decked out gym, a playroom for the kids and a guest suite for when the grandparents are in town. The units themselves range from 550 to 1445 square feet and have 8 foot high windows throughout.
