City life on the water and close to services, including the Atwater Market located a 20-minute walk away: who could say better? Bordered by the Lachine Canal, in the Pointe-Saint-Charles district, this New York-style loft is a charming little nest of 609 square feet for city dwellers.

It is located on the top floor of the former Redpath Sugar Factory, on the same level as the heated salt water pool, steam baths, a community garden and a gym. Transformed in 2006, the former refinery received various honors, including a Heritage Montreal award following its transformation into lofts.

The apartment faces south and has large 12-foot-high ceilings and windows of the same proportions. It therefore benefits from beautiful light. It offers a view of the Nordelec site, built in 1913, typical of the industrial architecture of the time, as well as the Samuel-De-Champlain bridge. Private access to a marina is an added advantage that will make kayaking, canoeing and boarding enthusiasts dream.
