Features & Amenities:

With four unique layouts, every home is a corner home with two distinct points of view, river and city. With expansive ten foot high ceilings, panoramic seven foot high windows, two designer colour schemes to choose from and elegant touches like hardwood floors in the living areas, gas fireplaces, granite kitchen counter tops, whirlpool tubs, these homes are designed for elegant entertaining and easy carefree living.

Concrete and steel construction, not only provides quietness and privacy, it also guarantees durability and sound of mind. Heated and secure parking, monitored security, are just some of the comforts of living at The Excelsior.

The comforts of home ownership at the The Excelsior extend to the outdoors as well. The development will sit on an exclusively private and beautifully landscaped courtyard featuring a fountain, trees and shrubs as well as flowers (in season).  Lose yourself reading a novel in this lovely secluded garden, a perfect setting that literally becomes an extension of the beautifully landscaped Stephen Juba Park.

Step outside to your oversized balcony and admire the Paddle Wheel cruise on by, or witness the tourists stepping off the water taxi at the dock just out front. Better yet, walk amidst the canopy of the stately trees along the park across the street. A short walk gets you to the historic Forks or the French Quarter of Old St. Boniface. At night, mere steps will have you at many of the city’s fine restaurants, cultural venues and the new ballpark.

SOUNDPROOFING
One of the most critical elements of hassle-free condominium living and one that is often neglected, is adequate soundproofing. The Excelsior is designed to ensure quiet, peaceful enjoyment of your new home.

FLOORS:
Possibly the most annoying sound intrusion in condominium living is through the floor system. And one of the best sound suppression systems between floors is concrete. The thicker the concrete mass, the better the sound suppression. At The Excelsior, we offer an incredible

  • 10” concrete floor for maximum sound transmission suppression plus:
  • ¼” Durason sound suppression mat under hardwood floors (to reduce sound impact transmission)
  • ¼” Accousti-mat sound suppression under ceramic tiles (to reduce sound impact transmission)
  • 3 ½” sound insulation at all washroom ceilings (to eliminate the sound of water running and toilet flushing)

SUITE DEMISING WALLS:

  • ½” drywall
  • ½” metal furring channels
  • 7 ½” masonry block
  • ½” metal furring channels
  • ½” drywall

PLUMBING WALLS:

  • All domestic water line risers are sound insulated
