It was more than five years ago when the Manoir Montefiore seniors residence on Mackle Road near Cavendish shut its doors. It sat empty for a while until Jadco Real Estate, the company behind the Equinoxe towers on Marc Chagall Avenue, purchased the property and completely gutted the interior to introduce a luxury rental apartment building nicely redubbed as Le Montefiore.
With the arrival of the second Equinoxe in November and Le Montefiore, I now welcome new District 2 constituents in three buildings since the last election.
Rising nine stories and consisting of 94 residences, unit sizes at Le Montefiore range from 440 square foot studios to 1600 square foot penthouses. Oren Elbaz, the manager of the Equinoxe handles similar duties here. In order to accommodate the additional cars, a second indoor parking lot was constructed where the Manoir Montefiore dining hall used to sit.
Residents began moving in towards the end of June. It is now 60 percent occupied. A leasing manager is available each day to showcase units, which come with brand new appliances. Someone I know who just signed a lease was sold on the idea when she saw there was a washer and dryer in each unit. There is an outdoor terrasse, which will soon have barbeques and a reception room for private events on the main floor. Pets are welcomed.
