Here we see the Canal compound really taking shape mere steps from the Des Seigneurs bridge.

Up on the roof, you're a step closer to Heaven. The pool is tempting and the city glitters at your feet. After a long day, the perfect place to press the "Unwind" button.

Nine to ten-foot ceilings and an abundance of large windows give spaciousness a whole new meaning at Le Canal Phase II.

A glass of wine and a stunning view as evening settles over the Canal and the city. The perfect ending to any kind of day.

Phase II recalls its past with resolute modernism as it hovers near the Lachine Canal and the Des Seigneurs bridge.

The rue Basin will be a pedestrian walkway graced with verdant gardens and water rows

A two-storey lobby features classical lines with thoroughly modern features. An elegant waiting area for your guests and a stunning entranceway to all the delights Le Canal Phase 2 has to offer.

Nothing suits a modern, Italian-inspired kitchen better than a wide choice of hardwood floors, quartz countertops and high-end appliances.

A stunning landscape.

Sleek bathrooms include rain showers, frosted glass, quartz counters and ceramic tiles.

Let it snow. Let it freeze. Le Canal's indoor infinity pool sends cascades of warmth and soothing sounds to take the chill away. When the temperature warms up, the windows turn into patio doors that open up to beckon the sweet summer air. Truly, a pool for all seasons.

Between Phase 3 and 4 will be a beautiful interior courtyard for residents only. The perfect spot for lounging, socializing or just taking the air.

The two-storey gym has just what you need to get fit and stay fit. Not mention just what you need to work out the knots and the kinks – a dry sauna, a yoga room and a Jacuzzi.

Superior soundproofing and the comforting contours of the bedrooms make Le Canal Phase II a dreamy place to live – and rest.

LE CANAL

On the water yet grounded in the city.

Le Canal is a visionary residential condo project located on the shores of the Lachine Canal in historic Griffintown. It creates an oasis of calm that is just minutes from the heart of downtown.

The architects of Atelier Chaloub et Beaulieu have created a resolutely forward-looking development while incorporating its historic heritage through the the use of materials such as masonry and brick that blends in perfectly with its natural surroundings.

Landscaping holds a place of pride at Le Canal. Fully 47% of the site's surface area is devoted to landscaped grounds, and the development is flanked on two sides by federally-protected parkland, meaning that Le Canal's hallmark views and unique character will never be adulterated.

Le Canal is being built in four phases. Phases 1 and 2 are now under construction. When Phase 4 is completed, the complex will house 497 units running all the way from open-space condos to two-storey townhouses.

Among the other highlights of the site are a sun-dappled inner courtyard, pedestrian walkways with fountains and water rows, indoor and outdoor infinity pools, two fitness centres, a ground level bistro and a rooftop urban chalet.

ARCHITECTURE & DESIGN

The past becomes perfectly present

Built along the shores of the Lachine Canal in Montreal, an important waterway since 1825, Le Canal evokes its historical origins and still creates a clean, contemporary design. The top two floors of Phase 1 are recessed to optimize sunlight in the courtyards, and pedestrian walkways with abundant greenery, fountains and water rows have been developed to give residents a true oasis in the heart of city.

The use of space in each unit promotes optimal sunlight, while the abundance of large windows adds undeniable warmth. Units feature Italian-inspired open concept kitchen; bathrooms with rain showers, frosted glass and quartz counters; and 9- and 10-foot concrete ceilings and hardwood floors. Each living room offers great views of either the city, the Canal, the Parc de la Pointe des Seigneurs, or the Des Seigneurs bridge

LE CANAL IS BEING BUILT IN FOUR PHASES

Phases 3 and 4 are now under construction. When Phase 4 is completed, the complex will house 497 units running all the way from open-space condos to two-storey townhouses.

LANDSCAPING

This landscaping grounds you

An extraordinary amount of thought and expense has gone into creating a complex where residents can easily escape from buzz and bustle of the busy lives they lead.

The choice of location was key. Le Canal is situated between two federally-protected park areas that can never be developed, guaranteeing that the project's hallmark views will never be impeded and its inhabitants never encroached upon.

Landscaped grounds take up 47% of the development's entire space, an astonishingly high percentage for any urban residential project. Residents have access a common courtyard and the Basin Street walkway with trees, abundant greenery, illuminated water rows, and fountains adorned with aquatic plants and flowers – a perfect pastoral setting that also makes it very easy to take advantage of all the delights to be found along the Lachine Canal.
