This luxurious 10-storey residential complex is one of the most important and prestigious buildings of its kind to be erected in Eastern Canada in the last decade.
La Volière is designed in the shape of a bird and is situated in a park-like setting with lawn swings, picnic tables and a pétanque court. Ramps render the building fully accessible and the main entrance features an aviary.
La Volière has a total habitable space of 60,000 m2 and offers a choice of 329 apartments available in 25 different styles, and 20 penthouses. All have a view of either the Quebec City or the Laurentian Mountains. The 31/2 apartments offer 90-100 m2 of living space, the 41/2's 105-122 m2 and the 51/2's 125-182 m2. Features include a sprinkler system, intercom, camera surveillance, special garbage chutes, swimming pool, fitness centre, sauna and community room.
The 3-level, 14,000 m2 underground parking facility accommodates 375 vehicles and there is also bicycle parking available.
The complex's brick facing was selected for its modern and yet classic appeal, harmonizing with La Volière's environment in Quebec City's upscale Sainte-Foy neighbourhood.
