L’Harmonie des Rapides – Phase 1

40 MARTEL STREET, GATINEAU (AYLMER SECTOR)

Six upscale condos in a peaceful area near all amenities.

The building at 40 Martel Street includes six condominium units, all of which were sold early in the construction process in 2010. The building boasts numerous attractive features and distinguishes itself by the following characteristics:

  • Siding made entirely of brick and stone
  • Underground, heated garage for the six condos
  • Elevator and ramp access for ground floor
  • 9-foot ceilings
  • Above-standard soundproofing
  • Large, south-facing windows for sunrise and sunset viewing along the Ottawa River
  • 2-bedroom units with sunroom, two with mezzanine
  • Square footage from 1350 to 1600
  • Hardwood and ceramic tile flooring
  • Granite countertops and wooden kitchen cabinets
  • Gas fireplace, air conditioning and radiant floor heating
  • Novoclimat and LEED© Canada For Homes certifications

Luxury Condos with LEED© Silver and Novoclimat Certifications

40 Martel Street constitutes Phase 1 of Terra Verde’s L’Harmonie des Rapides project. It was the first building within greater Gatineau to receive LEED© Canada for Homes (Silver) certification in September of 2010.

Built according to rigorous standards that are more exacting than those for conventional homes and situated near the edge of the Deschênes Rapids, these units occupy a prime home site in a Gatineau revitalization zone where denser growth is encouraged. LEED© certification means that the building meets enhanced criteria concerning energy efficiency, the health of occupants and respect for the environment.

Among other special features, we should mention that 40 Martel Street received an 83% EnerGuide rating. This translates into significant heating savings when you consider that a typical home complying with the National Building Code receives between a 65% and 72% rating. We achieved this energy efficient performance from our condos by combining superior air tightness, superior insulation, heat recovery from ventilation, the installation of certified Energy Star doors and windows and an abundance of south-facing windows which allow for passive solar heating.

The LEED© For Homes certification is administrated by the Canada Green Building Council and by independent organizations that inspect and certify the adopted measures. Therefore, consumers are assured a level of quality superior to that found with typical construction practices. In Quebec, Écohabitation is the certifying organization.

Le Jacques-Cartier: a unique natural setting in an urban environment

Under construction in a sought-after area near the water’s edge, Le Jacques-Cartier provides residents access to a private dock on the Gatineau River (in French) for your watercraft. Located on beautiful Jacques-Cartier Street, close to downtown Gatineau, the area allows nature and outdoor enthusiasts to fully enjoy the network of bike paths and the numerous attractions at Leamy Lake Park. This neighbourhood along the Gatineau River, which is currently undergoing revitalization, is sure to charm you. Several developments are planned, including the redevelopment of the bike path on Jacques-Cartier Street and the development of the waterfront. We must also mention the large-scale Jacques-Carter Street redevelopment project being carried out by the City of Gatineau and the NCC. Moreover, the libraries, cultural and athletic centres, grocery stores and shopping centres of the Gatineau sector will meet your daily needs just minutes away from your home. And Ottawa and the byward market are less than a 10 minutes drive.

As a homebuilder, Terra Verde is committed to the construction of environmentally friendly residences, and its Le Jacques-Cartier project will be the first to benefit from financial incentives offered by the city in its effort to encourage green construction in certain neighbourhoods. A $5000 rebate is offered to the homebuyer upon completion of the redevelopment of the property in this revitalization zone.

Le Jacques-Cartier meshes perfectly with the vision of revitalizing this area of Gatineau: a single-family house that had become uninhabitable due to its advanced state of disrepair was demolished to allow for the new building, and the materials were hauled off to be recycled. The new home built by Terra Verde will be much more energy efficient and environmentally friendly, without even mentioning the pure enjoyment the future owners will experience in this prime setting, facing the Gatineau River.

The building at 675 Jacques-Cartier Street, much as those at the L’Harmonie des Rapides development built in the Aylmer sector by Terra Verde, is seeking LEED© and Novoclimat certification. This means that it will meet enhanced criteria for energy efficiency, health of occupants and respect for the environment.
