La Fabrique 125 ranks among the three finalists in the Innovation category for the UDI 2013 real estate awards of excellence

La Fabrique 125, a residential project accredited by the Société d’habitation et de développement de Montréal (SHDM) and located in the heart of the fashion and design district, at the corner of Chabanel Street and avenue de Esplanade, ranked among the three finalists in the Innovation category for the 2103 Real Estate Awards of Excellence granted by the Urban Development Institute of Québec (UDI).

La Fabrique 125 is definitely a unique and bold project, a catalyst for the revitalization of this neighborhood and a testimony to the past of the clothing manufacturing industry. By focusing on the recycling and the enhancement of the architecture of this large-area building to create New York style residential lofts, the SHDM made the daring wager of incorporating its goals of affordability, homeownership and urban revitalization into an innovative project where art, design and creativity are showcased.

Johanne Goulet, Executive Director of the SHDM, paid tribute to the excellent work of La Fabrique 125 promoter, 125 Chabanel Holdings inc. (Groupe Dayan), and its team of professionals consisting of design, architectural and engineering firms, including Humà Design + Architecture, Formee Studio, WorkShop Architecture, Dupras Ledoux Ing., DL Turner consultants Inc. and builder Gerpro Construction.

“By implementing innovative development projects, such as La Fabrique 125, the SHDM plays its true role as a catalyst vehicle for urban revitalization and improvement of living environments,” she said.

It is worth noting that this is not the first time that the SHDM has been honored by the UDI. In 2009, the SHDM received the Real Estate Award of Excellence –Residential category component for Accès Condos, its unique formula of access to home ownership.
