MONTREAL , May 28, 2012 (press release) – The SelbyCampus group is thrilled to announce the groundbreaking of the prestigious SELBY real estate project, which will become one of the province's biggest green residential complexes.

Located in Westmount, in the old offices of pharmaceutical company Charles E. Frosst and Dawson College, SELBY was designed to reduce its environmental footprint as much as possible, while optimizing energy efficiency. Thanks to high-tech materials, future owners, who will begin to move into their new digs as of June 2013, will see their heating bill drop by up to 70%.

"While preserving the original structure's core components, we designed an innovative project that meets all requirements for LEED certification, proudly confirm engineers and SELBY promoters Roland and Sami Hakim. As such, SELBY condo features will include: a system of geothermal heating and air conditioning; central heat exchangers; unique, triple-glazed, low-emission fenestration; and passive solar heating."

A prestigious green project
Totaling 164 units spread across six floors, SELBY offers future owners not only a green option, but also a prestigious location, at the heart of urban life, featuring a unique architectural design inspired by Far Eastern architecture. This project also offers several choice amenities, including an automated 110-unit parking facility, a Québec exclusive!

According to Garo Kazandjian RE/MAX 3000 real estate broker, in charge of the exclusive sales & marketing of the SELBY project, and who has represented some of the most prestigious developments around the world, the project's popularity is sure to increase steadily: "At the time of this groundbreaking, over 60% of Phase 1 units have already been sold. SELBY condominiums' strategic location and exceptional architecture, combined with their environmentally-friendly features, create an incomparable offering on Montréal's current market."

Built in 1926, the SELBY building housed the laboratories of Charles E. Frosst, later known as Merck Frosst. In 1969, the property changed hands and vocation to become Dawson College until 1999. The following year, engineers Roland and Sami Hakim, along with their team, acquired the complex with the objective of repurposing and renewing the SELBY building. After several years of work and analysis, the residential construction project finally takes shape: within the historical structure of the old SELBY building, the team proposes to create one of Québec's biggest, LEED-certified, residential "green buildings", whose first construction phase will be completed in June 2013.
