100% completed project

This former chocolate factory turned into a residential project with innovative common areas set the tone for Griffintown’s revitalization.

When Prével acquired two former chocolate factories from Lowney in Griffintown, many of the area’s industrial buildings were abandoned and the sidewalks empty. 14 years later, the Lowney project (including Lowney sur Ville), which includes 15 phases and close to 1,700 condos, brought life back to the neighbourhood. The four-season “urban chalet” was also born with this project, a concept that gave residents the opportunity to get together and socialize all year round.

Living environment



  1. Avant-garde for its time, the common areas include urban chalets, fitness centres and gorgeous rooftop terraces.
  2. The industrial charm of the original buildings has been preserved, particularly through the restoration of the red brick façades.
  3. Affordable units designed for first-time buyers.Lowney was a trailblazer with regard to unit space optimization. The small and very affordable condos optimize space in an impressive manner and offer a comfortable living environment.
  4. A Prével project in collaboration with our financial partner, the Fonds immobilier de solidarité FTQ and Cardinal-Hardy architects.
