A total of 2,000 new housing units, spread across 17 to 19 buildings, will be built in the Namur/Jean-Talon area.

Walking out of the Namur metro station and down Jean-Talon, it’s impossible not to notice the new condo buildings, some finished and some under construction.

And no wonder – according to information provided by the CDN-NDG borough, the area is the local hot spot for residential construction.

A borough list of major projects describes six housing projects underway in CDN-NDG, all being built in Namur/Jean-Talon.

That’s a total of 2,000 new units, spread across 17 to 19 buildings. The development is part of the borough’s plan to revitalize the area, though it has been criticized for not including social housing.

Here are the buildings that are underway:

At 4901 Jean-Talon, a car dealership will be replaced by a 12-floor, 220-unit building with two wings and ground floor commercial space. As demolition approval was only given a month ago, the project is just getting started.
Down the street, at a new 175-unit condo building at 4975 Jean-Talon, units are already for sale. Many of the one, two, and three bedroom condos have already been sold.

At 5075, 5081 and 5085 Jean-Talon, the first part of a five or six phase project is underway, with 750 units across six to eight new buildings. The first project had 140 units in two twin 10-storey buildings. The price of a one-bedroom condo starts at $166,400; a two-bedroom goes for $205,013.

Seven buildings, in four phases of construction, are being built at 7351 Victoria. They will include 375 to 380 units and commercial space.

At 4950 de la Savane and 5025 de Paré, 277 condos are being constructed in two phases – an eight-storey building will be followed by a 12-storey tower.

Finally, another housing project with 120 units will be built at 5055, 5057 and 5059 de Paré. The demolition of an existing building was recently approved at the March 7 borough council meeting.
