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.

  • Upscale interior finish
  • Above-standard soundproofing
  • Hardwood and ceramic tile flooring

  • Gas fireplace, air conditioning, radiant floor heating, on-demand waterheater
  • 1-1/2 washrooms
  • One 2-bedroom unit of 2410 ft2 over two storeys (one to be finished according to your own needs and personal taste or use as a workshop – studio)
  • One 2-bedroom unit of 1085 ft2 on the ground floor
  • Access to a neighbourhood dock for personal watercraft (annual fee)
  • Novoclimat and LEED© Canada For Homes Gold certification

Terra Verde Developments condominiums are environmentally friendly units, which means that they meet enhanced criteria for energy efficiency, health and respect for the environment. Two independent certifications attest to this: Novoclimat and LEED© For Homes.

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.
