With the success of Phase 1 sales of its Drummond Tower as a foundation, developer MC Finance is set to go ahead with Phase 2 – the Mountain Tower – of their Roccabella project in the prime downtown real estate bordered by Drummond and Mountain Sts. Buyer response to Phase 1, which is now almost 90 per cent sold and set for an end-of-2015 delivery, has been so robust, its Phase 2 twin will proudly line up beside it by 2017.

« We first launched sales for Phase 1 in March of 2013 and we now feel confident about going ahead with our original plans for Phase 2, » said Giovanni Tartaglino of MC Finance. « Some of the buyers disappointed by not getting the unit they wanted in Phase 1 will now have a second chance. »

Both Phase 1 and 2 have exactly the same specs – 298 units in each tower – and share the magnificent 17,000 square feet of common landscaped third-floor terraces that will link the two towers.

MC Finance is working an Italian theme with the Roccabella, its name inspired by another MC Finance project, the luxurious 24-storey Roc Fleuri on the corner of Drummond St. and de Maisonneuve Blvd. W. The views afforded condo owners in the Roc Fleuri will be duplicated at the Roccabella, which has either views of the mountain or St. Lawrence River from all its units.

The steel reinforced walls and exterior facade, composed mainly of an architectural wall and anodized aluminum, protect what’s inside the Roccabella – and it is here that the devil is in the details.

All units have high-end engineered flooring, acoustically engineered sound control and a private balcony.
