Back in February last year, we had news on the project scaling back by 30% of its original size. Then in March 2009, Devimco was asking the city of Montreal to step in with financial help.

The much-anticipated project in the southwest borough is now unveiled.

Scaled down to $475 million from the original $1.3 billion re-development plan originally presented by Devimco, the new project is now called “District Griffin”. The city of Montreal is investing an additional 30 million towards the development of public and green spaces and infrastructure renovations.

Phase 1 of District Griffin will include four towers, from 17 to 19 stories,1,375 residential units, a 3-star hotel will also be built. Also 200,000 square feet of office space. Commercial spaces will be available on the ground floor, with 130,000 square feet that will include restaurants, a daycare center, small local businesses, a gym and a spa.
