Imagine. Living to the rhythm of the seasons.
A distinctive lifestyle, tucked away on the West side of Sommet Saint-Sauveur. By following the mountain’s natural path, you will find a residential domain breathing with contemporary and nordic character, offering one of the most exclusive views of the Laurentians.
A private trail surrounded by parks will take you directly to Sommet Saint-Sauveur’s charlift. This exceptional 53 residential buildings project has tons of options to offer. Lots size varies between 16 000 and 87 000 square feet and municipal water and sewer services, in addition to underground electrical infrastructure, are included.
The Norden vision is part of an ecological and environmental perspective. Inspired by Scandinavian architecture, the buildings blend perfectly into the nordic landscape, both aesthetically and functionally.
