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.

** 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

An affordable project in the heart of Griffintown – GET READY

The H3C project sales team will be welcoming you at 1606 rue Ottawa, on Saturday, September 22, and for five weeks after that, according to its usual office hours (see left column), to present you the project in detail and the unique purchasing process for the project. (See below on this page for the four steps of this process.)

There is no need to rush to the sales office, as no reservations can be made until you register online, which you can do only on or after 10 a.m. on Saturday, October 27, at h3c.accescondos.org.

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 sales team looks forward to meeting you at the project site, located near the Lachine Canal, Bassin-à-Gravier Park and in the heart of a bustling neighbourhood, in an ideal environment to spend a perfect day and discover the attractions of your future neighbourhood.

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.

ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA

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

Four steps for purchasing a unit at H3C

The opening of the sales office on Saturday, September 22, at 1 p.m., will mark the beginning of the first step in the customized sales process, which is designed to prepare the most motivated buyers. Get ready to move on to Step 2, starting October 27 at 10 a.m.

Four steps to follow

1- Get ready

From the opening of the sales office, and for the next five weeks after that, the real estate developer’s team will be on hand to welcome you and answer all your questions at 1606 rue Ottawa. During that period of time devoted to preparing the most motivated buyers, no condo unit reservations can be made.

At that stage, you will need to gather as much information as possible to be ready to buy a condo unit in the project. Take note that the plans of the various units will be available online and at the sales office.

During the opening hours of the sales office, the project’s bank representatives are also on site to answer all your questions regarding the mortgage approval. Don’t hesitate to come meet them to obtain your mortgage pre-approval.

*The project’s bank offers a guaranteed rate until the project delivery.

2- Register

Saturday, October 27, starting at 10 a.m., you will have to register, using a short online form, on the list of eligible buyers at H3C an address tailored for families and first-time buyers.

This registration is THE time, as the sales team will then contact you, in accordance with the chronological order of the registrations (to the micro-second!) in order to make an appointment to buy your unit. You may register online from a computer, tablet or mobile phone.

For more information about online registration, visit h3c.accescondos.org/en

3- Get an appointment

Following your online registration, the project sales team will call you to schedule an appointment to purchase your condo unit based on the chronological order of the registrations.

Rest assured, there will be a reasonable amount of time between this call and the date that will be offered to you, so that you can plan this meeting on your agenda. However, in the event of a delay due to your unavailability, it is important to be aware that this could result in a more limited choice of available units. Please note that at this stage, the sales office will be open only to people registered on the list of eligible buyers who have made an appointment.

4- Become an owner!

At your appointment, bring your mortgage pre-approval, choose your one-, two- or three-bedroom unit based on the project’s eligibility criteria and sign your preliminary contract, which is a pre-condition for your final mortgage approval.

In addition, you will need to prove, with the required supporting documents (see list of documents on the Exclusive Option page), that you are a family or first-time buyer, and you will also be required to sign a witnessed declaration.
