Québec City’s tallest urban residential tower will see the light of day on Laurier Boulevard in the heart of a neighborhood that will become more dense in the coming years. Promoter ACERO is signing this 23-storey project, with delivery scheduled for 2024.

The start of construction for the SWL, which will offer 150 high-end apartments, is scheduled for January 2023. ACERO estimates its 23-storey project at 90 million. The style of the building, very slim, type pen towerwith very large windows, will be a first in Quebec City, says the developer, while Montreal already has several buildings of this type.
The SWL, for Sir Wilfrid Laurier, will rise at the intersection of Avenue de Germain-des-Prés and Boulevard Laurier in the desirable Sainte-Foy district. This location, which is close to all services, major highways and shopping centers, will change a lot in the next few years with the arrival of the tram.
“Especially lately, there has been a demand for high-end housing in the sector,” explains Benoît Raymond, President and Founder of ACERO Real Estate Group, over the phone. The idea is to offer a product with a very urban vocation. We are on the corner of very busy streets and close to the business district where there are several hundred thousand square meters of offices. »
If Montreal and Toronto have multiple luxury condominiums, “Quebec is a bit of a poor kid,” he says, because there’s nothing anywhere but on the banks of the St. Lawrence River. In Quebec we will be one of the few.
One to three bedrooms
Among the 150 condominiums for sale are one to three bedroom units and eight penthouses with two fully glazed facades. The tower will have an underground car park with 225 parking spaces and will house a small commercial area on the ground floor.
“We only wanted to build a residential tower because customers don’t really like meeting commercial customers. It’s often that negative comment that comes up. Originally, ACERO wanted to build an office building, but the project changed last year. The marketing of the condominiums begins in September.
There are already two residential buildings on the site. Several other major projects are underway, including those by Groupe Dallaire and COGIR Immobilier.
