Additionally, the apartment will be located closed to a new Line 9 station, which also will be a transit point for AREX.
The studio apartments target newlywed couples and families with two to three children.
Some units will be equipped a terrace of "considerable size," that can be used for gardening, exercise and other outdoor activities.
