In addition to prioritizing families and first-time buyers, the exclusive option includes resale conditions designed to encourage buyers to remain owners of their condo unit for at least 5 years (therefore avoiding speculation). All you need to do is pay $1,000 as a deposit and the SHDM will advance you 15% of the down payment required to purchase an Accès Condos accredited unit under its exclusive option.

* Please note that one year of ownership corresponds to a period of 365 days calculated from the date on which the notarial act (deed of sale) is signed.

** Repayment conditions differ depending on whether the condo is purchased under the standard option or the exclusive option. The purchase credit is greater under the exclusive option; however, in order to avoid speculation, the percentage of the increased value to be repaid depends on the number of years of ownership before the condo unit is re-sold.

H3C, an address tailored for families and first-time buyers

Given the success of the H3C project, a large volume of qualified buyers has been recorded and the limit has been reached and the sales should be finalised shorltly.

The sales office is therefore closed. The sales team is working only on appointments set with qualified buyers and the signature of the contracts.

The Accès Condos program is a valuable tool for Montrealers, as demonstrated by the strong interest in the project H3C, an address tailored for families and first-time buyers. We take due note of this interest and would like to point out that many units are available at Faubourg Contrecœur Phase 5 and Faubourg Contrecoeur Phase 6.

An affordable project in the heart of Griffintown, for delivery during the summer of 2019

Ideally located in the heart of the Bassins du Nouveau-Havre site, at 1606 rue Ottawa, this Accès Condos accredited project offers 78 affordable units, with families and first-time buyers as the priorities. The delivery of the project is due in July 2019.

Prices before the 15% purchase credit

    • 1 BDR starting at $206,293 (taxes included)
    • 2 BDR starting at $263,753 (taxes included)
    • 3 BDR starting at $335,766 (taxes included)

78 condos offered, with families and first-time buyers as the PRIORITIES

H3C, an address tailored for families and first-time buyers, includes 27 one-bedroom units, 23 two-bedroom units and 28 three-bedroom units, 18 of which are maisonnettes—two- storey, cottage-type units—with a patio or balcony. This offer consisting 65% of two- and three-bedroom units is distinct in the neighbourhood and customized for the needs of families and first-time buyers.

The project is fortunate to have two housing co-ops on its site—L’Habitation 21 and L’Habitation 22—currently under construction. These are completely independent projects, with separate buildings and entrances, except for the garage entrance, which will be shared. The ground floor of the building, overlooking the future Place des Arrimeurs, will also add to the commercial space in the neighbourhood.

With this new accreditation, Accès Condos is encouraging families and first-time buyers to settle in Griffintown and is also promoting a positive mix. Such diversity in terms of clientele will contribute to the vitality and quality of life in the neighbourhood.

Families and first-time buyers are the priority focus of the project. If you would like to buy a unit, you will have to prove, at the time of signing the preliminary contract, that your personal situation corresponds to one of these two profiles, by providing the required supporting documents and signing a witnessed declaration.

* See the list of supporting documents on the “Exclusive Option” page



To qualify as a “Family”, you must have at least one child who is either under 18 years of age (in sole or shared custody) on the date of signing the preliminary contract or who is to be born or adopted within nine months following that date.

A family (whether a first-time buyer or not) may purchase a one-, two- or three-bedroom unit.


To qualify as a “First-time buyer”, you must not have owned a home located in Québec in the past five years, including through an inheritance.

A first-time buyer may purchase a one- or two-bedroom unit. (three-bedroom units are reserved for families)

New condos surrounded by parks in the heart of a vibrant neighbourhood

Living at H3C means being close to everything:

  • Downtown Montréal and its entertainment district
  • Old Montréal and the Old Port
  • The commercial vitality of the neighbourhood, including on Notre-Dame street and Peel street

Creators, business people, academics, foodies, cyclists, strollers, culture and design lovers, they all come together in Griffintown, in the heart of a vibrant and thriving Montréal.

H3C is also the best of both worlds because, in addition to its surrounding vitality, the project is located in the heart of a peaceful environment which includes public facilities and many parks, all so near the Lachine Canal :

  • the Bassin-à-Gravier family park (at the east)
  • the future Bassin-à-Bois park (at the west)
  • the future place des Arrimeurs (at the north)
  • the private inner courtyard (at the south)

The H3C project as a whole comprises six and seven floors and offers:

  • 65 indoor parking spaces
  • Abundant windows and natural light
  • A concrete structure with optimal soundproofing
  • Two elevators
  • Attractive lobby with direct access to the inner courtyard
  • Private landscaped inner courtyard

The EXCLUSIVE Accès Condos option for H3C buyers

With H3C, an address tailored for families and first-time buyers, Accès Condos is accrediting, for the first time, an affordable project within an area in high demand—Griffintown—with the clear objective of giving priority to families and first-time buyers wanting to stay in Montréal.

Out of concern for fairness and to limit the risks of speculation, the Accès Condos program is presenting its exclusive option, including:

  • A purchase credit increase to 15%
  • Priority reservation of units for families and first-time buyers
  • Resale conditions that aim to encourage buyers to remain owners of their unit for at least 5 years (and therefore avoid speculation)

More information on this option may be found in the Program section, under Exclusive Option.
