Elogia’s expansion: even more to love!
On June 1, the Elogia residence in Montreal inaugurated its impressive new expansion with a complete makeover. The new residents were warmly greeted by the Elogia team and their new neighbours. Longtime residents also wrote touching words of welcome for the new arrivals.
Marlène Béland, who has been General Manager of the Elogia residence for the past seven years, eagerly awaited the arrival of the new residents. Her greatest wish? To see friendships develop between old and new residents.
“I always get really emotional when I remember the joy I felt when they announced the expansion of the residence. I just couldn’t wait for residents, both new and old, to discover the new Elogia and take advantage of what it has to offer. From the modern apartments to the spacious and varied common areas and the services accessible within the residence, everything is designed to make residents’ daily life easier and provide a peaceful, stimulating and really enjoyable retirement lifestyle.” —Marlène Béland, General Manager of Elogia
Even more charming
The new Elogia is much more than a building rising above Montreal’s cityscape. Along with the expansion, the residence’s existing apartments and common areas were also thoroughly renovated.
Three times more spacious, the common areas will provide residents with a wider choice of activities and leisure spaces where they can thrive and enjoy retirement. More services and recreational activities means more enjoyment for everyone. Residents and visitors especially love the large terrace on the 12th floor, which is the ideal place to take in the stunning views of the city. Sunsets and fireworks at the Old Port are can’t-miss events!
Expanding Elogia’s common areas was a key commitment for Luc Maurice, Founder and President of Le Groupe Maurice, who wanted to offer retirees more opportunities to meet, socialize and form critically important bonds: “What I really love is seeing people interact. It’s often said that in order to live a long, healthy and happy life, you need to eat well, be active and have a disciplined lifestyle, but it’s also important to socialize. Personally, I always tell myself that whenever people make two or three friends at their residence, our work is done.”
Even more practical
Without a doubt, one of the biggest advantages of the expansion is the IGA Extra grocery store that will be opening soon.
The residence has a uniquely convenient location, steps from shops and services (pharmacy, hospital, restaurants, etc.) as well as public transit via Assomption metro station and several bus stops.
Even more fulfilling
Since opening in 2007, the Elogia residence has become an integral part of the local community. Staff and residents contribute actively to community life and associations through volunteering initiatives. With the arrival of the new residents, our community involvement—a core commitment for Le Groupe Maurice—will only continue to grow.
