The Le Concorde building is a
high-end condominium tower in Downtown Montreal built in
2007 next to the city's entertainment district and near
Located at 441 President Kennedy
Avenue, it is in a highly sought after location. Its
relative small size (only 125 units) makes for a very quiet
a peaceful environment.
Le Concorde is one of the
Quartier des Spectacles most sought-after addresses. Aside
from its standing and quality finishings, it comes with
several locational advantages such as proximity to both the
Place des Arts and McGill subway stations which offer access
to both ends of the underground city. It is also in an area
of the city with three grocery stores, one bio store, and
one high-end produce store all within 5 minutes walk or
less. It is also a few minutes walk from the city's only
24/7 pharmacy (chemist) which can be very convenient.
The building has a 24/7 doorman or concierge, a gym, and
excellent sound proofing. Indoor parking is also available.
The units have very different layouts. The 2nd to the 9th
floor were originally designed as open plan Lofts but over
time, the owners have partially or totally closed off the
bedrooms. The 10th to the 16th floor were condo designs with
only 6 units per floor. Finally the 'Penthouse' level on the
last three floors have only 4 units per floor. These are
more high-end and come with higher ceilings (10ft) than the
lower units as well as gas fireplaces.
Le Concorde has aged much better than many of its
neighbouring buildings and its value per square foot is
always increasing. It is in one of the most convenient and
entertainment orientated areas in Downtown Montreal and is
very convenient in winter thanks to its easy access to the
underground city. The units have large windows, are bright
and well insulated.
Concorde is a service orientated building which comes at a
high cost for a comparatively small building. As a result it
has high condo fees which make it more interesting as a
purchase to live in rather than to buy-to-let.
